Three Forks AS Sep 19-20
« on: September 14, 2009, 03:55:49 PM »
Does anyone know how range set-up is done @ Three Forks?
When i was there for the May AS weekend, the targets/firing/ready lines were already set up because of the RBC the prior week.

Shootimus and I talked this morning on this very subject.
The posts are up with rebar horozontals.
Our plan is to hang cardboard and mark the line Sat AM.
Bru, are you going to be ready to give some history?

yes, i think i can do some history - the 3 strikes.  i still have to work/read up on dangerous old men, though.

i've been reading "Fusiliers: the saga of a British redcoat regiment in the American Revolution" (Mark Urban) and "King George - What was his problem?" (Steve Sheinkin) for more background.
i can also recommend "Patriots: Men who started the American Revolution" (A.J. Langguth).

Bru,
You dont have to tell the whole story unless you want to, Jerry what are you up for telling? do you want to cover what you did at Boulder or another part of the story?
Met some folks at Logan range this weekend getting ready for appleseed. Showed them some real basic sling use and elbow placement. They said they have been dryfireing at home.
The supply box was shipped last week but not here yet.

Bru,
Choose a part and prepare. Jerry has the third strike, retreat back to Boston and dangerous old men. You can tell it all in one session or a little bit at each walk down range.
