1st Annual Congress of Riflemen at the RBC in Ramseur
« on: January 07, 2019, 10:25:42 PM »
It is requested that this notice is to be posted on every liberty pole in every town and province  across America. (For those of you in the 21st century, this means copy and paste it to your Facebook page)

Hearye hearye!!!
Be it known, in this first month of the year of our Lord 2019 that the Riflemen of the great state of NC are searching for men and women of all ages to have a chance of a lifetime to become one of Morgan’s Riflemen.

Rifleman or beginner, instructor or not, age, size, height or religious beliefs does not matter. There is something for all. Come to Ramseur, NC from March 10-15 for a week of rifle instruction second to none.  This will be a week where relationships of a lifetime are forged.  New friends made around a roaring campfire. Good food will come out of the camp kitchen. And some of the best desserts you ever tasted out of a Dutch oven. And you will really learn EXACTLY what your rifle will do.

If you’re not a Rifleman yet,  good chance you will be when you leave.  If you are a seasoned shooter, you will test your skill at a host of targets at various ranges out to 500 yards and if you’re already an instructor this is a great time for a refresher class and a week of just plain FUN!!!

So come to the Home Range and show the fine men and women of NC that you really have what it takes to be one of Morgan’s Riflemen. Reserve you’re spot now as this week will surely fill quickly.

(And if necessary, consider yourself double dog dared to come)

I pray thy indulgence, the wife and I will be honored and enthralled to be counted amongst those Patriots that would be in attendance!  :F

I was coming anyway, but I found some work in East Tennessee that will help defray the travel costs.  ^:)^

Count me in! I heard there was going to be a lot of shooting going on and by George I don’t want to miss that. The word is that there might be a lot of home cooking coming out of a certain Instructor’s campsite. I KNOW I don’t want to miss that event. I’ve been to a RBC before so I know what to expect and that’s why I’m attending again. I’m looking forward to seeing everyone. Is it March yet?

Yes there is gonna be some good cookin’ going on. Bright Eyes and I have just about got the meal plan made out. If anyone wants to go in on the meals pls shoot me a PM so I know how much food to plan on making. And the most important is how much dessert to prepare.  :1luvu

Also the last storm took down the bathhouse (if that’s what you wanted to call it) and we have had 2 volunteers that have donated their time and materials to make a new bathhouse happen!   ^:)^. With Polonius’s help today they have got the frame up. Floor, siding and roof will be an easy day very soon. I’ll jump in and do the plumbing (unless a plumber out here volunteers).  Hot on the left, cold on the right and water flows downhill if I remember correctly.   :2t I’ll try to upload a picture or it.

If anyone coming has a request for a meal one night let me know.

"Responsibility is a unique concept... You may share it with others, but your portion is not diminished. You may delegate it, but it is still with you... If responsibility is rightfully yours, no evasion, or ignorance or passing the blame can shift the burden to someone else. Unless you can point your finger at the man who is responsible when something goes wrong, then you have never had anyone really responsible.”
― Hyman G. Rickover

It is my understanding that the RBC at Ramseur will be the week prior to Patriots' Day weekend. Sadly, I won't be able to attend. Barry and Old Mikey from Alaska will be there.  I think Sgt-at-Arms will be going as well.

I am getting my RBC fix later this month in Florida.

I pray, good sir, forgive my past absence, and place me on the rolls for this year's congress.

Also, please let me know what I can bring.  Though, if it meet with your approval, I shall most certainly bring my Virginia Rifle.

Perhaps a separate thread is called for.
