    Interest in doing this again?

    http://www.thehighroad.org/showthread.php?t=91907

    My place is available of course, same deal as always. I'll provide the hamburgers, buns and sweet corn if available (last year we were about a week late for sweet corn).

    Or if you guys would rather meet up someplace else, we'll be there.

    This year I'll call the Sheriff's Dept. beforehand. ;)

    Pueblo CO is about 5.5 hours away for me from Alb NM. I'd like to come but if it gets any further north I'll have to pass.

    you let people pitch up a tent at your place? ...or is there any campgrounds near? I think the 5.5 hour drive would be too much to go there and back in the same day.

    That would be fine, we have plenty of room. My brother lives in Q-Town (actually Tijeras), so we have made that trip numerous times.

    August 27 works for me. September 12 is a Monday on my calendar, so I suspect you meant the 10th. The 10th is OK, too.

    Duh, yes, whatever Saturday is (I guess I was looking at August). So, September 10th it is? Input please.

    New twist. Bring your shotguns (I have extras). I'll have a couple throwers and some cases of clays. I have this new 28 ga I need to show off, and my Citori is in need of a good workout.

    I've left a message for Crystal. I'm really hoping she will make it again this year. Good thing Sandy's not the jealous type. ;)

    I'm totally in. Maybe even get a chance to shoot some of these new toys I buy and put away (i know, sad huh?). Can i bring the new wife? she's totally hooked on the shotguns, (usually outshooting me)
    Sept 10th doesn't work though, end of August works better.

    Clothes are optional? Count me in! Once you guys decide on a date, I'll see what I can do. I also got a couple of new toys this year, and would love to bring some down. Mainly vanilla stuff, but I loooove to shoot them.

    Dude! You need to check out the pictures from the last couple of get-togethers before you decide that clothing optional would be a good thing with this group ... lord knows you don't wanna see ME running around al natural :p

    Hey Larry-- i'd like to come out with Vickie, and maybe Mom. Was thinking of bringing my new Sav. Striker 243 WSSM-- how far out can u shoot at your place? Maybe some archery gear for kids and all. I set up a huge styrofoam tgt. and put balloons up for the kids to shoot at-- it's a lot of fun. Have to be in the afternoon tho since i'll be in the middle of my stretch of graveyards.

    If there's shotgunning (or black powder cannons) involved, our son will not want to miss it, so the 27th works better for us.

    Sscoyote, there isn't anyplace to safely shoot long range at my place, but bring the archery stuff. My field is about seven acres so we can use that for the shotguns and archery. My berm in the back yard is only 25 yards, so we are pretty much limited to pistol calibers. Bring the Stryker anyway, I'm sure these guys will enjoy seeing some of your toys.

    Any more preference on the date? I hate to leave anyone out, but it looks like we can't include everyone. :(

    And if this bunch shows up nude, I'm leaving.

    I might be up for it. If you don't mind a Kansas flatlander joining in! :evil:
    My job description changed and now I have weekends off so work won't be a problem.

    I'll bring the little BP cannon again if you like. If the cops get there before we pack up, they can shoot it this time. :)

    I've got a pedal-powered air gun the kids might enjoy, too.
