Winterseed at Beaver Falls?
« on: August 26, 2019, 10:55:40 PM »
I have been getting some inquiries about scheduling a Winterseed at BVRPC, so I thought I would leave it up to the instructors.  If you have any interest in attending, either as a shooter or an instructor, please reply and let me know what weekends work for you.  Border-raiders are welcome!
One of the penalties for refusing to participate in politics is that you end up being governed by your inferiors.    Plato

Still, if you will not fight for the right when you can easily win without bloodshed; if you will not fight when your victory will be sure and not too costly; you may come to the moment when you will have to fight with all the odds against you and only a precarious chance of survival. There may even be a worse case. You may have to fight when there is no hope of victory, because it is better to perish than live as slaves.    Churchill

EZ3,

I owe you for so many Boarder Raids our way, count me in as either shooter or instructor, which ever you need. I never do anything except work and Appleseed so schedule is up to you.

As there is no way for the remaining adults to take on the work of those that die, we must pass the ideals and duties on to the children. -PHenery

It makes it over the hill Ron, you just need to be up on the rifle range to feel it!

I love me some Winterseed. That's 5 hours one way, but I would like to shoot another one for sure. Liberty Center was a hoot and it was COLD and snowy.

Hammbone, CDH wasn’t kidding, the sun never really makes it over the hillside. Great club, and great people. In a big holler so it’s always about ten degrees colder than the surrounding area. Just a great time

I'm game. The temperature swung between 5 and 8 degrees at Liberty Center the whole time we were there. I was even stubborn and camped out. But I am part Viking and love the cold so there were no complaints.

Please coordinate the Beaver Falls Winterseed so it doesn't fall on the same weekend as the Liberty Center Winterseed!
I would border raid to attend!

Winter seed at Beaver Falls has been in December (at least the ones that I have been to).

Just put on my calendar the Liberty Center in January.

It would be awesome if this was a large event.  I'm about an hour and ten minutes but am willing to host border raiders.

If any of you are interested and can make the "Harrisville" KD I'm less than 15 minutes from that range.
