So how is it looking for this up coming weakend,18-19? Lot's of people from work may be there? pos Boy scout troop. Don't know, hard to get some people to commit to anything that takes work! So if it ain't in front of the TV they won't try. Went by range today and did a little clean up and cut some ditch's to drain the water. Steve :~

Steve,
Thanks for looking after the range.  I've been up to my eyeballs packing supply boxes for the coming weekend shoots. The range managers name is Bud Remington.  He's out for the weekend but should be working on it during the week. 

How much water was there?

Would you be willing to help pack supplies every once in a while?  It's quite an experience. 

Thanks,
bulkhead

Steves4570,
It looks like good weather for the weekend.  There's a couple from my work place plus my daughter from Boulder CO.  She could have gone to Texas or New Mexico but wanted to attend in the state it all started. 

As of last Tuesday we had 10 registered.  It's amazing how many won't commit to going.  We've all been guilty of that to some degree.  Ask me about mine next weekend. 

I assume that by your screen name you have an affinity for the 45-70.  Care to enlighten us? 

Look forward to the shoot.

We'll steal her away next year for good  ;D

Beowolf,
It's a good weekend for shooting.  Tell your wife that I'm looking forward to being dry too.
