DFW - proposed TX CHLer Skeet Shoot

#1

Post by AndyC1911 »

We haven't done this in a few years, so who's game to go to Elm Fork?

I figure we can find/borrow/steal 2-4 boxes ammo each, even in these times. At this point, Sat May 7th might be good - it gives everyone a couple of weeks' notice - but I'm open to suggestions on that. Also, I may be able to arrange a little surprise if I can swing it.

I'd love to do it. Have to see what the scheduler has in store. Gonna be up there this weekend, but covered up by athletics and Easter with the grand kids.

That's a great idea Andy. Those were fun.

I am scheduled to be in the lab that weekend and would have to find my own replacement on this short of a notice. I have plenty of PTO, but finding someone to cover shifts has been difficult lately. I recently requested two weeks off to help my daughter with #3 and was only granted the first week because they couldn't find coverage for the second week. I had put in the request 3 months in advance.

So, at this time unless this event is moved to to opposite weekend's Saturday I won't be able to make it. Either 4.30, 5.14, or 5.28 etc. However, don't hold this up just for me folks. If enough of you agree on a weekend I working so be it.

I guess I should check on my shotgun ammo situation.

The little surprise I mentioned - a few small medals and red/white/blue bands, just for funsies:



I'm furthermore taking myself out of contention for the 1st, 2nd and 3rd place medals - I'll shoot but I'm not in the running for those medals.

As for the purpose of the 4th medal at the right - the spare bronze - I'm keeping a surprise, but everyone gets a fair crack at it.

I'm good for either date. And I'll be bringing my bride (whom you have not met yet, Andy).

Me neither. I have to work both the 30th and 7th, and already have another social obligation on the 14th. :???:

It's getting close and I hate to do this, but something unavoidable for family came up for the 30th. I'm still available for 5.14 and again on 5.28. However, don't let that inhibit the rest of y'all from getting together on 5.7 or 5.21 if a bunch of you can & want to.

There seems to be little interest, so let's cancel this - perhaps another time.

I just got my schedule last night for the next few weeks. I have the following days available for the month of May:
Wed 5/4
Thursday 5/5
Mon 5/9
Wed 5/11
Mon 5/16
Wed 5/18
Fri 5/20
Mon 5/23
Wed 5/25
Sat 5/28

Maybe a weekday might work better for everyone? Just a thought.

I can’t do the 14th…already committed to another social event. And since nobody else replied until you did yesterday, I already made a range date with my son on the 28th. Maybe some time in June?
