    Just a short drive up 25...;)

    So, you all like oatmeal cookies w/chocolate chips?

    Sounds like I would have to do some industrial scale baking...:D

    If anyone needs assistance, let me know, I live in Albuquerque and have a four door car.

    As so as you say the word, I'll send in my money. At least my wife and I will attend. We'll be driving from Las Vegas, so I could be talked into transporting a person or two for the meet. Also I'd be more than willing to kick in an extra $20 to help get the insurance.

    As far as NRA membership is concerned, we are newly paid off Easy Pay Lifetime members. I just check the NRA website and they have a no magazine bare minimum membership for $10 a year. When you start the official RSVP you could also offer to enroll people into the NRA.

    Good idea, and I'm sure the NRA would be happy to accomodate us, and help gain new members. BUT, I don't know if I've mentioned it, NRA membership is not required to use the Whittington Center. Recommended, but not required, unless things have changed.

    Kamicosmos, excellent suggestions, thank you. Maybe sometime around next January or so, we ask for a $50 deposit. That would make managing the numbers easier.

    The deposits are going to be a nightmare to manage. I nominate bratch. :p

    We'll be happy to help organize, bring food, haul stuff, anything we can do.

    I still think this will be lots of fun. :)
    Just reminding me and I'll send my money to ya.

    I'll bring a brick of 22's. Each one of us can shoot off a magazine. It will be a hoot. :neener:

    Heck yea, a weekend of fun, guns and friends for $50 is worth it.

    Can't decide if I want to camp out or get a hotel/cabin. If the majority are camping than I'd rather do that.

    Hanging out around a campfire listening to Lawdog stories would be a hoot!:D

    Also, if we have a gun show down here before the shoot I can see if Miwall can deliver extra ammo. I'll have a full size Bronco to bring gear and I'm sure we could get another truck or two.

    Last time we went I brought six bricks of .22. One thing you don't want to do at Whittington is short yourself on ammo. We had 7,000 rounds of ammo in the back of Sandy's Taurus last time, this time we're bringing a truck and a trailer. :D

    Lennyjoe, it would be awesome to get LawDog there, and Oleg, Tamara, pax, Art...

    The possibilities...

    Lenny - Want to split a campsight? I'll bring the elk (assuming I get drawn again this year, otherwise I doubt I'll have any more left by this time next year). I'll probably drive myself in the Ranger, so I'll have plent of capacity for ammo. Might get a buddy to come along too.

    I can do it. I don't think it would be too horrible. Just open a THR only bank account so none of the money can get mixxed up with personal funds, keep an Excel sheet with info and open a thread strictly for finances to keep a list of who has shipped and recieved.

    Art's already RSVPd:cool:

    I've sent PMs to a bunch of people has anybody else sent any others out to people like Lawdog that are in high demand?

    I talked with my father the other night and he was interested (even intrigued) in the idea... and open to bringing the grill.

    Between the two of us we've done everything from a burger-burn for 20 people to a full on cook-off for 200 (church camp, every summer).

    How common is charcoal down in NM and what kinds are availible(chunk or briquettes)? Would there be onsite cooler storage of food? Is there a butcher's shop nearby? :D And are there any sort of strange local laws prohibiting trailer grills?

    These are preliminary questions only. (Recon if you will. ;) )

    Plenty of charcoal here, depending on how many "controlled" burns we get...:what:

    Any discussion? I'll personally vouch for him as a level headed and honest young man. Him and his folks have been guests in my home.

    I don't think we need to be sending in any funds for at least 6-8 months, maybe after the first of 2007.

    Folks to add to "wish list" :
    Lee Lapin and his bride, kudu, Smoke, Correia, oh heck, just invite THR Staff, keep it simple.
    Brian Williams and his daughter Gus and her husband Mr Gus :p

    Now Old Fuff, got to have him. I figure we have trainers and writers that sometimes want to be regular folks, so Givens, Ayood, Marty & Gila Hayes, Gresham, ...invite these folks to attend.

    Boy, the Whiny folks that are against guns gonna hate this gathering...Good!

    I figure I'll with hang with the CO contingency, somebody has to keep tabs on Sadie, while mom and dad shoot the big guns.

    We will help Smoke Rizen count the cookies or something...

    Ah HA.

    I knew my ears were burning for a reason.

    Will ask the good doctor and see what she says- depends on her schedule, since mine's pretty ... open, you might say 8^).

    lpl/nc (sounds great so far, hope we can come)

    Oh Goody!

    Hey folks! Lee is gonna bring his famous pepper sauce for greens.

    I get dibbs on getting handgun lessons from his PhD bride. :D

    Me have ulterior motives? Who- little old me? ...I do have some stuff figured out. :p

    Oh...Lee, Dave and some others, start practicing shooting skeet "a bit different".

    We need to check and see if this place is "understanding" and let me do something since some have asked.

    I start at Station 8, with low bird, "take them two" then high bird and then to station 7. I shoot a "variation" some have asked about, and on a public range best can do is go backwards on the stations...and I do not stand on the "sanctioned" station spots.

    Some have asked, and I might get talked into doing this if they will let me/ some of us have some leeway. All Safe, just not your 'sanctioned game'.
    One does not call for birds either...*snicker*...I can teach a puller...folks get into and want to pull this game once learned.

    Bring good tunes to shoot to...Seger Live Bullet is good :D

    I'd recommend waders for all in attendance. With the crowd we are going to have it is bound to get fairly deep;)

    Yeah, since I owe him a plaque, and he hasn't sent me his snail mail address.

    Old Fuff sent me a line drawing of a 1911 I needed for the FNRA banquet centerpieces. It engraved beautifully! I mean the checkering on the plaque feels and looks like real real checkering! It is that detailed!

    EK, the grill is a great idea! Not sure what you mean by briquets or chunks, but briquets are easily available. I'm sure I'll have room if I need to bring some.
    Steve, I *almost* have Smoke Rizen talked into running down there in the next couple weeks (had to twist his arm real hard ;) ) We'll ask.

    bratch,
    just bring a jonboat, easier to get into and out of than waders anyway. :p

    Every shot a shotgun from a jonboat? I can share that with you too...:D

    Something for everyone I say.

    If it will help, I used to do a lot of Desktop Publishing. Any forms, flyers, stuff like that, I'll be willing to offer my services for free.
