Northern Virginia meet


July 5, 2004, 08:42 PM
Okay, so I figgered, it's been a while since our last meet. Nobody else is taking the initiative, so I am.

I would like the High Roaders in Northern Virginia to have a little get-together later this month. My personal feelings are that July 24th is the best date. Any other suggestions?

The way I see it happening:

About noon, meet at Bull Run Shotgun range, get in some rounds of wobble trap and five-stand, or whatever is open (I'll try to make some reservations there, if possible). Then, lunner (between lunch and dinner) at whatever restaurant seems like it would be good. Then, NRA range for pistol and rifle.

Bull Run does rent out shotguns, including youth shotguns, for a fee, if you don't have one of your own. NRA range doesn't rent guns, but I'm sure all of us are willing to share. NRA range does charge a fee of $15 a person per hour if you are not a range member, and Bull Run charges per round. Both places sell ammunition if you forget your own.

Anybody have any suggestions, or wants to say they can go, or whatever, please post. Actually, I'd like it if a week beforehand I can get a good estimate of who's going so I can see how many groups we need to split into at Bull Run.

Also, not only NoVA THR'ers are invited. Anybody else who wishes to come is welcome to join us, including members' children (if they can shoot; we don't want young'uns wandering about, bored, on a firing range) or members who are children (parent or legal guardian necessary but not provided), but I have a feeling we won't be getting too many Californians.

I'm afraid I'll be in Colorado that week. Have fun though! :)

I may be able to cross the river and join you fine folks. I'll keep watching the thread!

Off the top of my head, I can't recall if that date is open or not. If it is, I'll be there.

Tagging, I need to see how things develop for that weekend, but if I can, I will. Also dont forget the Show at the Expo center the following weekend:D

I found out last night that's the weekend my in-laws come up. I can probably swing trap in the AM, but not the entire day's activities. If he's interested, I'll see if my brother in law will join us. He's never shot trap that I'm aware of, but he may enjoy it.

Hmm. I'm thinking I'm going to need a few people who can definitely make it before trying to set up reservations at Bull Run. I dunno. If we can't get enough people, we mightn't be able to do it.

Which I suppose is just a complicated way of saying *bump*

A problem has sprung up. I will not be able to make it that day, and neither will my family. My aunt is either visiting starting the 23rd or the 30th, we are not sure which, and if it is the 23rd, I can't make it because she (no, she wouldn't even want to come if I invited her, she is rabidly anti) is visiting, and if it is the 30th, I can't make it because we will have to clean our house that day.

And the weekend of the 30th is the gun show in the Capital Expo Center, so I sincerely hope it is the 23rd she is visiting...

Maybe we can reschedule for mid-august, though I'll be gone early and late august myself.

I tried for the whole 2 months I was there, to get some Hampton Roads folks together. I hope NoVA is better.

i'd love to make a meet, it's just a matter of cost...

(i'll be at the show, though!)
