    I super bummed that my family vacation overlapped and I couldn't make it down. It sounds like it keeps getting better and better. I'm glad everyone had a good safe time.

        Gentlemen, it was an outstanding time. I really enjoyed seeing the old hands and meeting new ones.

        We had some outstanding shooters working long range for the first time. It is an honor to spot for guys that can repeat the hold and the spot goes right where we wanted it. (Jerry, Jeff, you guys did great!)

        I'm going to brag on Janice, she rang steel to 1400 with her .260. The lady can shoot.

        An outstanding time. I have more fun in those three days than I have the rest of the year. (Excluding the other one!)

        I will get the pictures up when I get home. I will be posting the albums on our website and will link to them as soon as I get home from Long Island this weekend. If you have pictures to add, shoot me a PM and we will coordinate adding them.

        Be safe my friends.



        As discussed at Rendezvous, when I get specifics on the steel targets, we'll post it here at SP.

          Hey Vince,

          I understand you found a stowaway after you got home.....
          I hope you have your:
          1) licence to remove the state bug from said state.
          2) I hope you had all of your shots. It is a felony to infect a state bug with "bad blood".
          3) Your state tax stamp allowing a the taking a state bug for sport.
          4) I hope you squished him with a big hammer.....I hate those blood sucking critters.
          5) I have never met a dead tick that I didnt like!!!!!

            I had a great time the first day, ended up leaving the 2nd day because i got sick. I will attend next year if i am able to acquire a spotting scope so i can trade shooting and spotting with another shooter.

                      If you are talking about Mike's gf...how do you know he didn't pay for her? If I missed something in this thread just ignore my comment.
