HELP! Dec 13/14 Corona Shoot - BOYSCOUTS!
« on: November 11, 2014, 11:30:13 AM »
I will have 11 Scouts and 5 adults plus a father/son pair transfer from a previous shoot.

I need iit's/instructors plus 16 loaners!

They will be camping so it would be great if we camp as well.

Sign up on tips and post up here if you can help and what loaners you can bring.

I'll camp out and I have 2 10/22's with tech-sights and a scoped marlin .22 magfed bolt action

Cheers
Phil V

Holy Cow.


Well I haven't had a chance to type out a formal proposal but for now I will just send out a general PM and email and see what I get for help.


I suspect I can come up with 10 10/22's and Marlins with tech sights and my schedule is saying I am committed for Saturday but open Sunday. So for the moment I can be there Sunday.
Let's see what other business we can drum up. I will send out message this evening.

Please note this is a call for help for the D E C E M B E R shoot in Corona where I need lots of loaners for boyscouts.

The shoot this weekend november 15/16 any instructors/IITs are welcome but not big rush for loaners.

OK here is the latest scoop.

I have 10 scouts and 5 adults who will arrive Sat morning and camp Sat night. They want to leave Sunday at noon as they want to go to another Scout event (a special thing for one of their Eagle Scouts).

I have one adult already signed up via eventbrite and I was emailed about a father/son pair transferring from a previous shoot.

So if you are going to help as an instructor sign up on TIPS and enter in the comments how many rifles you can bring.

Cheers

OK, I'm trying to rustle up the required 15 or 16 rifles as all semi-autos with slings and 2 mags so we can run a straightforward Appleseed shoot. The troop knows we aren't doing a merit badge bolties only boy scout shoot.

So using LTR as a short hand for a ruger 10/22 or marlin 795 or equivalent (semi auto, mag fed) with two 10 round mags and a sling here's what I think I've got so far:

5 from Bob 210
5 from readysetgo
3 from Camlj
2 from me
balance from penny's dad

In addition we have
1 bolty from me
couple of bolties and or tube-feds from camljr
10 bolty 7 round mags from rick

but we'll keep these as fall-backs for now.

Let me know. I have PM's out to some of you to confirm round out the above and arrange pickups/dropoffs for those who are only loaning.

Boyscouts are arriving sat morning (not camping Fri night) and are leaving midday Sunday to go to a boyscout event (presentation of eagle scouts). We have 3 normal shooters currently signed up and I've limited the eventbrite to 6. The 15 scouts/guardians don't show up on eventbrite due to the logistics of getting all the money rounded up, but they are coming.

Sign up on TIPS with comments on your equipment loans if you are coming to instruct. Cam, Norm and I are camping out Sat night in Norm's camper (thanks Norm!).

Cheers
Phil

Hey Phil


My paying professional workload has been extreme lately so I have not had a time to check the page.


Do you need any rifles with scopes? I can maybe rustle up 2 maybe 3 scoped, other then those I can field 10 tech sight rifles but I will need someone to come get them, Saturday for me is going to be a full day.

Thank you to everyone who help this weekend go smooth and make an enjoyable event for the Boyscouts and the 4 regular souls who attended.

Special thanks to all those who helped supply loaner rifles for the scouts.

Thanks to StormN for the rudimentary accommodation, Camljr for the thin gruel, and Rick for the company round the burning ember.... (ssshhh, what happens in Corona stays in Corona  %) )

Thanks to Paul, Boris and Dan for travelling out to help with the instruction.

Great way to end the year at Corona.

Oh, and the placeholder for the AAR is over here

Cheers
