    Hi All:

    This originally started on The Florida Shooters Network (http://www.floridashootersnetwork.com). A few of us thought that it might be a cool idea to get together for a weekend, to shoot, eat, and party with some of the folks that we chat with daily on the internet. Anyway, I untertook the task of putting it together. I am the RangeMaster / General Manager of the RoadEnds Shooting Club in Davenport (Haines City), Fla (dead center of the state). In a nut shell, here is what the weekend entails:

    Arrive Fri nite, 11/11 get settled, get aquainted (night shoot OK).

    Sat AM Coffee, Donuts, and Shooting. There will be an IPSC (USPSA) action range, a home intruder simulation shoot course (we will also do this low-light in the evening) designed and supervised by one of our local LEO's, Big Dan. There will also be two range bays open all day for "run what you brung" open shooting - the 50 yd and 100 yd bays.

    Sat Lunch: BBQ (Pig Roast, burgers and dogs) and soft drinks. (Lotsa great food !) Then let the shooting continue !

    Sat Eve: We can all head up to Peppers lounge for Pizza, Adult Beverages, Karaoke, and lies about how great we shot!

    Sun 10 AM: We will serve an awesome ranch breakfast right on the range - Juice, Eggs, Sausage, Grits, and the best damn fried cornbread you ever tasted. Shooting continues. All are welcome to stay and enjoy the day.

    Cost for the weekend is $25.00 ($10.00 for range members), includes Coffee and donuts and BBQ lunch on Saturday, Breakfast on Sunday, and shooting all weekend.

    If you are interested in attending here is the thread to follow for current info, hotels, etc.:
    http://www.floridashootersnetwork.com/phpbb/viewtopic.php?t=7302 Again, this is the CURRENT thread !!!

    In addition, if you are interested, here is the thread where it started:
    http://www.floridashootersnetwork.com/phpbb/viewtopic.php?t=5979

    By the way, there is space to camp on the range, if you so desire. We are a working cattle ranch, so if sharing a pasture with cow (ie:friendly bovine / aka big lapdogs) doesn't set well with you, you might want to try the hotel option, or bring the RV.

    Would like to have this all sewed up by Nov 1st, so if you are planning on attending, please let me know. Hope to see you out there, it's gonna be a great time.

    Any questions, feel free to email me at timokon@yahoo.com

    Cheers,

    Tim

    Do you have an address or crossroads for Mapquest?

    Found it on the referenced site.

    Name and address of the range is:

    Road Ends Shooting Club
    2809 RWS Ranch Road
    Davenport, Fl. 33837

    The range is located 6 miles south of I-4 Exit 55. About an hour from Tampa, 1/2 hr from downtown Orlando, Three and a half from Miami, Two and a half hrs from Punta Gorda, Six to Seven hrs from Pensacola (I get around the state a bit), all depending on traffic, obviously.

    OK, I'll take Longitude and Latitude for the GPS.

    I'll beg the wife and see what she sez.

    Who needs some practice. :cool:

    Hi CD. Glad to have you aboard. You'll enjoy yourself. This is a real friendly bunch. If you would be so kind as to shoot me an email so that I can contact you about reservations, that would be great.

    Hi All:

    Have gotten several emails / inquiries about the Florida Shooters weekend. Should be a lot of fun. If you are planning on attending, PLEASE take a minute to email me TODAY to confirm ( timokon@yahoo.com ), as it is starting to get a little tough to keep track of, and time is drawing near. Need to start planning for number to feed, who is camping on the range, etc.

    Also, if you are bringing someone, a Wife / Husband / BF/GF / SIGnificant other , cost for the second person is $15.00 for the weekend, so couple cost is $40.00

    Hope to see you out there ! :what:

    Great Idea and thanks for taking the time and effort to honcho it. I am sorry I can't make it this time as I am shooting in the Border Disorder on the 12th.

    Be sure to let us all know on the next time around. I used to cook whole hogs competitively (REDNECK STYLE) and would be glad to help.

    I'm gonna do my best to be there Saturday morning. It would be nice to camp, looks like the weather is will be ideal for it. Sad to say, I just have too much other stuff going on. :( I'll have to be content with the short (1hr) drive over for the day. It beats not getting to go at all :D

    Really looking forward to seeing everyone. Should be a great weekend ! Just want to make sure everyone has my cell in case lost or whatever. It's 845-590-3010. I'll be at the range by about 5-5:30 tomorrow.

    Safe travels all !

    I live in Palm Beach county I'd be willing to travel to do some shooting. All the

    ranges here are indoor and I haven't shot skeet in years.
