    Can you get to the museum there and snap some shots?

    More shots from Gunmakers' hall too. Is Dick Miller still demonstrating there?

    Thanks so much. A pilgrimage to Friendship is one of those things that I have wanted to do for years. Work and kids kept getting in the way. I am hoping for next year's spring shoot.

    Were I to go, you'd have a hard time pulling me away from any of the smith's sheds.

    Thanks for the pics. Friendship has been on my bucket list for years. Nice picture of Mike Beathe and his 'store'. I've got a couple of his knives that he made for me back in the 90s when we were Rendezvouzers. Cowboy Action Shooting takes up al my time these days. I hadn't seen Mike in about 15 years when I ran into him at Winter Range in Phoenix this past February

    Finally got away from the house and made it today Friday. Where did all of the vendors go?
    I was talking to one of the vendors who has been there many years and he was complaining that although the booth contract prohibits it the Assoc. is being lax about letting vendors cut out early. The vendor I was talking to "Kenockee Tradin Post said if you want to shop and stock up you better be there before Tuesday. The vendors start to melt away after that.

    WOW! WHAT AN EVENT ! ! ! ! !

    Interesting to note this picture;

    [​IMG]

    Up here in Canada a range would NEVER be given operating permission with the houses shown in the background being that close and not bermed in very high up to avoid any stray shots off that way. In fact I can say that the range, berms or no, would simply not be approved at all.

    It impresses me that there's that level of understanding on the civic authourities and that the shooters are trusted and work towards proper control to avoid this becoming an issue.

    The whole event with the wide range of associated events and fair like atmosphere makes me think that I need to load up the bike or the Roma Racer and make a pilgramage to the Friendship event some time before I leave this moral plane.

    Those houses are on the main N/S road into town. The road makes a sweeping turn to the east at the steak sandwiches. The range is in the elbow.

    Friendship is a wonderful place to spend some time.

    Greetings
    Thank you for the photos of this year's shoot. My last was in 1984. Just never get back up north there it seems with time to go. But I can keep on trying.
    Anybody see Danny Powel or Lizard lurking about the grounds ?

    Some day I will make the trip out there. It looks exactly like the kind of thing i would enjoy. I am especially intrigued by the watermelon spitting contest. You guys must be pretty big to be able to spit entire watermelons.:D:D:D
