Tim Murphy DAR 2010 shoot Dates
« on: January 08, 2010, 04:23:20 PM »
I checked both the Ohio and PA schedules, and came up with the following dates for 2010 in Slippery Rock. I tried to avoid both Ohio shoot dates and PA ones. I would appreciate all input on these before Mooney finalizes.

May 8/9
June 5/6
July 10/11
August 7/8
September 4/5 (Labor Day weekend)
October 2/3 

I will cross post this on the Ohio board, since they provide most of the staffing here. I would love to see some more Pa instructors come out here in 2010.

The Buckeye state is happy to help when we can!  However, you probably can't count on us to provide most of the staffing this year as I'm pushing our schedule to the brink and plan to have an Ohio shoot basically every weekend of 2010 from March through November.  Right now we have 20 on the schedule and are only halfway there in scheduling dates.

We're happy to help where we can and everyone knows that Appleseeders from all states won't let an event get canceled for lack of Instructors....

But I'm confident PA can step up their recruitment of Orange Hats and get them trained up to quality standards!

No conflicts with N. WV that I know of.  Looking forward!

Cowdog, are these confirmed and can I send in the EIP info for them if you have not already done so?

I have the dates on my calendar.  Except for 5/9 they all look good for me.  Will have two more dates in Beaver Falls by the middle of Feb.  Besides the Tim Murphy shoots, any other dates I should try to avoid?

Any estimates on when Slippery Rock dates will be official?  I want to include them on a local flier intended for the I-79 corridor (Washington - Morgantown - Clarksburg) that runs south of Pittsburgh.  (Yes, Meanstreaker, I have included pertinent OH events... and seem to be adding more all the time!  O0 ).

    Which means, Cowdog, you set up as many shoots as you can - as a DAR, your goal is 12 a year - and don't worry about "instructors" or about "competing" with any "nearby locations" - set 'em up, and let's give people an opportunity to come check out your place.

Hey all, the dates as originally proposed to were sent to Mooney. I assume from there they go to Savage Shooter.

Fred-

12 a year is a little tough due to the location of the DAR on my farm. The road to the range turns to muck due to snow melt. I am working with a local club to serve as a Winter AS home around here (Slippery Rock Sportsmans Club). In fact, I would like to host the May 8/9 AS there.

OK it's March 1st, the June through Oct Cowdog shoots are not on the official AS schedule, where are we with these shoots?  ???
And what about the May Sportsman Club shoot, any progress?  @@)

My understanding is that the Pa coordinator sends them to Savage Shooter? I sent them to the Mooney on Muster night. If this is wrong, let me know ASAP so I can move on it.

The Slippery Rock Sportsmans Club has unoffically agreed to May 8/9. Tonight they will take official action and I will meet with an officer later this week to fill out the paperwork to send to Mooney or Whoever- is in charge

Has anyone called Mooney to see whats up? Could be he sent the EIP in, thought he sent it, sent it and it never got to Savage, etc etc. First place to start would be talking to him.


I just called him....left msg.

Sorry folks, I'm not getting my email notifications for posts to the PA Forum anymore, not sure why. Anyway I thought I sent these over to SS already, but I may have started to and got distracted and didn't finish. I'll submit them now.

Thanks for the call B9, sorry I didn't hear the phone ring, but got your message.

Feel free to give me a little nudge any time you guys want to. I'm working 2 jobs now and I get very little time online these days. Doing what i can. If I'm not doing my job as well as needed/expected please feel free to let me know. My feelings won't be hurt as I want to make sure PA is getting the attention it needs. If there someone who has more time to contribute I will relinquish my post and play BOTG with the time I have.

Hey, guys? I was just reading the schedule and noticed that there's a shoot scheduled for the first weekend in August. You DO realize that the August 7/8 weekend at Slippery Rock is smack dab in the middle of the Pennsic War, right? Finding camping space that weekend is going to be a horror show, and you can FORGET about Cooper's Lake Campground during Pennsic unless you're a SCAdian.  ;)

In fact, I'm not even sure how easy it'll be to find motel space; I seem to recall that there are a lot of SCAdians who don't like to camp who "motel camp". (for those who haven't heard of the SCA, Pennsic is a 2+ week long medieval "reenactment" held at Cooper's Lake Camground in August - IIRC, the campground is reserved exclusively for SCA folk and from what I understand, in recent years the campers have been spilling over to area campgrounds as Cooper's Lake isn't big enough for the 14,000+ attendees). (Yeah, I used to attend... spent many an August there, broiling under the PA sun in full armor)
Unhappy it is ... to reflect that a brother's sword has been sheathed in a brother's breast, and that the once happy and peaceful plains of America are either to be drenched with blood or inhabited by slaves. Sad alternative! But can a virtuous man hesitate in his choice?

dwarven,
I live about 5 miles north of Cooper's lake and have been lifelong friends with Dave. the Pennsic is indeed a circus. However there has been a substantial increase in area hotel capacity due to the growth of the Outlet Mall at Grove City (Next exit North) . There is also a KOA near Grove City, and Rose Point campground to the south. So far, nobody has commercially camped for an AS here.

That said, feel free to shift August if the group agrees.

Gumby!   **)  I love it!
 
I'm on my way out the door and don't have an answer to the 9:00 question. 
 
PM me if you need anything (like an extra big spatula to pry people off of their couches with) and I'm looking forward to seeing you all.

Look forward to seeing you here Gumby!
I am unsure about the 9:00 question. There is not restriction at my range. When I first looked at shoots here, I was going to refrain from shooting on Sunday during services at two nearby churches, but the site is isolated enough that sound does not seem to be a nuisance.
