    I've spoken with Lones Wigger, who has won Olympic Gold for rifle shooting. He is currently one of the organizers for The Sportsman's Team Challenge, and he's interested in setting up a Team Challenge Demo the Friday of that weekend.

    WOW!

    That sounds pretty neat. :D

    This should be a Great Get Together with people from all over.

    I'm already starting to pack!!!

    Do you think I'm getting ready too early? :D

    Any interest in co-ordinating an "Appleseed" along with this event?

    It would be a stetch, and would take a full two days to do well, at least one full day to scratch the surface and get you started (many folks are 'fighting themselves at the end of day one, and hit the rapid growth phase on day two).

    If enough interest is shown, and the organizers wish, I will work on making it happen.

    See this thread for a THR members recent experience: http://www.thehighroad.org/showthread.php?p=2761232&posted=1#post2761232

    Cheers

    It is possible to get insurance regardless of NRA status (BTW, I *am* an NRA member). For example, Colorado Multigun has yearly insurance for about $750, $1M policy, I believe.

    Unfortunately, the only open-enrollment Pat Rogers class in 2007 conflicts with these dates...

    As far as the logo:

    How about a slight twist on the logo Corriea's been using on all the hat/shirt orders. You know, keep it the same so everybody recognizes it, but add something for this event only?

    I am interested in going, but I dont really know anyone very well on this board. I joined in 2004, but just havent frequented any gun boards for the last 2 years, although obviously that is changing. I think it would be fun, if I didnt feel out of place :uhoh:

    Im an NRA member (EPL) if it matters...

    I would love to go also a NRA member. Anyone over here on the east coast want to hook up and carpool, might make getting firearms there a little easier.
    An appleseed shoot would be great I just read about them yesterday and it sounds like a blast.

    Never saw any such thing at Whittington. That must be just a convention rule.

    I've always carried at Whittington.

    According to Packing.org, NM honors your Colorado permit. It honors my Florida permit, too. It seems they honor most of the "shall issue" states.

    How long do I have to include myself on "the list"? There might be a chance I could do it, but any decision made would probably be really close to the date.

    I'm in the same position. Don't know how busy work will be, might not be able to take off...Deadlines and delays, etc...

    Is there a cut-off date for signing up?

    What about signing up and then having to cancel?

    Non-NRA. My brother is though, I might be able to convince him to tag along.

    Purely guessing, but a cut-off date might be around next March. We can't do any reserving of facilities until January.

    dasmi, I'll add you to the list, if somebody hasn't already done that.

    Just to update-

    I should still be able to make it hopefully, if I do my girlfriend may be tagging along. She isn't NRA and doubt she will be by then either.

    If the date shifts I can go, but JMusic, Brownie and I have scheduled the point shooting courses from May 11 through May 19.:(

    Sounds like a big time.

    This sounds very cool and what a better thing to post for my 100th post on THR. I may very well drive down. Could fly but that might be more expensive who knows.
