Any events this weekend?

Postby Soccerdad1995 » Wed Sep 14, 2016 12:07 pm

So I just found out that my wife will be out of town this weekend. Are there any good events within a reasonable drive of Houston? I'd be willing to spend the night if necessary, so am open to anything in Dallas, San Antonio, Austin, etc. It's either that, or organize the garage....

If you are a car guy, the Corvette Race team will be at the Lone Star LeMans race at COTA - outside of Austin this weekend!

Gun competitions. Sorry for not being clear. I posted in the Competitive shooting forum but I'm guessing a lot of folks clicked straight from the main index page.

I'd prefer IDPA, just because I have shot that before, but am open to USPSA. Some of the non-gun things sounds interesting as well.

I couldn't find any compelling competitions, so I ended up driving over to Lake Charles, LA for some gambling on Friday night, then took my daughter to a movie on Saturday night. She is 16 so my window of opportunity to hang out with her will soon be closing. I also cleaned a few guns and re-organized my ammo stockpile. All in all, a pretty good weekend.

Sounds like a good move on your part.
