About to add two more to the registered.  Any chance you or one of the other two instructors will have a spare rifle for my son to use?   I have a 10/22 set up for me.  I also have a Marlin 60, but no sling or mounts for it.

Will the site have lunch available, or do we need to pack a lunch?  This will be our second one, and lunch was available at the last one, so we weren't sure if that was the norm, or a special case.

Most of the time there is a local restaurant that sends a guy around for orders/deliveries.

I dont know the mechanism that makes that possible.  If they are still doing that, then you will be good to go.  Personally, I would bring a lunch just in case.

I just received notification that my grandfather passed away this morning.  So we will be dealing with that this weekend, so the gun you had set aside for us will not be needed.  Thanks.

I am coming to Waterman on Saturday.

We currently have 19 pre-registered (2 cancelled due to a death in the family).

For staff we have 2ClicksLow, Laredo, KiwiMonster (IIT3), shooter559 (IIT 0) and Flyr521(IIT 0). I am also bringing Janir and another Red Hat/SB with me, so we're well covered.

Thanks to all who responded!

Yesterday was great fun. Thanks to the instructors and RSO's. 

The rain didn't get us down and next time I will be more prepared. I didn't even know there was such a thing as a rifleman's patch, but now I want one. Funny how that works.

Thanks again guys and gals. I learned alot about the sling yesterday.
