    Glad to have you, BP and BM.

    Now, where're your kids? Grandkids? Parents? Grandparents? Brothers? Sisters? Uncles? Aunts? Cousins? In-laws? Hey - we need 'em all!

    Plus neighbors, co-workers, friends - anyone else you can think of?

    Everyone counts.

    And everyone is needed...

Met a bunch of guys from TN this weekend at the Kingsport Shoot Coordinated by Student and Shoot Boss VAShooter. We even had a guy bring his kid up from Murfreesboro (from just south of Nashville) to camp out at the range and stayed through both days having a great time.

We have to get some of the "locals" we have up here in East TN to work with Student and get some thing going. I'm going to talk to him some this next week on this. I got the phone # of one IIT we had who is not yet on here. We all, along with VAshooter )  told him to get a name, get on a PC and get on here and and get cracking too. There are a good number of AS'ers up here who need to get some "pushing going" to get some more AS's going. The is a very large Region and, since we touch onto other States like we do, there is nothing in our way except people NOT making the effort. We'll start doing some "pushing" and see what we can do.

Like someone else said, time's a wastin' and we don't have the time to keep fooling around.

Heads Up Volunteers,

I'm heading out of Bristol, VA/TN and going to Ramseur, NC on Thanksgiving Day for a "special 3 day" Boot Camp that Fred set up for Friday, Saturday, Sunday Nov. 28, 29, 30.

I can travel a couple or three different ways through VA or TN then NC, or even through Asheville, NC then on over to Ramseur. If anybody else wants to ride with me, then holler at me on here. Also, you will need to go to the Events Schedule and sign up for it (cost is $100 + $2.75).

Come on and let's go have a real "Turkey Day Weekend" at Ramseur, NC.

That's the name of the hollow.  It used to be called Wheat Hollow a long time ago.

I knew that. I just though it was funny that you used it.
Glad to see you on the forum.

Well......if you can cook as good as you prepare game meat, jerky, and instruct on how to cook it.......I'm a ready to eat what your cookin' anytime!   O0  I think my daughter wants me to take a deer for your jerky receipt now.
