Badlands AS April 30, 2011
« on: April 01, 2011, 11:46:43 AM »
Greetings all.
Grandfield is sneakin' up on us.  Just 4 weeks out.
I have ordered one hundred (100), 18x24" coroplast boards printed with "Appleseed" and directional arrows to donate to the cause.
Most of these are intended for target backers but it was easier just to order them all printed
instead of some printed and most blank. We can divide these up amongst 2 or 3 instructors to make sure at least one set
of backers shows up at shoots that need them.
For my set I plan push pins only for target posting. Boards porcupine'd with staples,  too scary.
I can get more t-post also. Transporting t-post in your car could be problematical.(shrug)
No SB scheduled yet on Instructor Scheduling page.  2 RH and 1 OH signed up.
Henschman is otherwise committed that weekend.
If weather is conducive, I may camp at the range.
Bringing my faithful KD girl friends along as usual.  :o

Wish I could make it.  I'll be home with a newborn for this one.  Have fun out there!

Weather will be fine - it always is at Grandfield!

All ready and planning on being there. Rifle is ready and sighted in. May bring the SOCOM for the long range stuff.

As of Monday there are 15 shooters registered.  I know there will be a few more.

Forecast for this weekend . .

Saturday: Partly sunny winds SSE @ 17 with gusts to 30. 

Sunday: Mostly cloudy Winds SSE @ 25 with gusts to 37.  So that will probably be a 0 value wind for Sunday . .

Always wind at this range. Always.
Always more on Sunday than Saturday,too.
Maybe I should bring stakes and rope to anchor the shooters on the line.

If I don't need the snorkle this year that will be good.
If I don't have to spend a week hosing mud off the truck, even better.

I just bought a 4x4 just for Appleseeding (mostly) - and spent another grand on Mud tires. 

I think I have guaranteed dry weekends for any shoot I attend from now on.   8) 

I'll probably never get to use that 4wd!

Hello guys! Had a great time at the Badlands AS. I will be going to another soon, and will be taking some classes at Badlands in the fall. I appreciate what you guys do, and I have a lot of practice to do!
Thanks again,
Hampton

Oh, Al, thanks again for loaning me the rifle!  O0

Not a problem on the loaner - glad you had a good time. Keep up that practice - shoot by the numbers, and tell your friends/neighbors/co-workers about RWVA!

I wanted to say thank you to Al, Will, Chris, and Dale for devoting their time, skills, knowledge, and passion at the Grandfield Appleseed shoot this past weekend.  I had an excellent time and learned a little more of the rifleman's skill, although I still have a ways to go.  Another thing I learned is when the instructors are chuckling evilly about the weather conditions at the range during past shoots, take note and be prepared ... at least we were not swimming!
Al, thank you for the loaning me your 10/22 and I will look into the trigger kit we talked about.
Dale, thank you for the opportunity; I will pass it forward.
OG, thank you for going over KD; I'm still sketchy on the finer aspects, but will get that scope adjusted yet! :wb:
Scarecrow, thank you for the good advice and encouragement.

Next one I go to, I'm bringing my 10/22... It will feel like cheating, so I'll have to bring a more challenging rifle as well. Hey, where's the pics at? :)

I need help, I cannot notify anyone, screen says, "An error has occured. You are not authorized access to this page." Maybe I just slipped through the cracks, but am getting annoyed. I am ready to get back into A/S with both feet.  dave 405-224-5430 and thanks

Hang in there Dave. It will get sorted out.
Was it a specific area you cannot get into?
