Great times indeed. Our travelers were a welcome addition.
Our daily visitors were even entertaining.

Through the hard work of many, this gets done.
May it continue for many years.

Thanks, Elkaholic, for setting my daughter Momoka up with the great shootin irons! And Thank you to 4x401, Brunop, Snowhawk, Otis, and everyone who worked hard to make it happen. Also, I really appreciate you putting the yellow tape out to mark the turns, 4x401.
Good seeing you again Andy. It was a pleasure meeting your Wife and Daughter. Momoka was really doing fantastic! I think she only had 1 or 2 misses with skinny Rich's rifle. I took a picture of her shooting that I will post up soon.

I will make a proper post in this thread in a day or three when I can collect my thoughts and have some more time.

The "Cliff notes" of that upcoming post is that you "fart smellers" are an awesome group of people and we are blessed to have been there with you.

Thank you one and all

Great to see you again too, Darren!

My wife and daughter had a great time, and I'm thrilled beyond belief that Momoka has just about as much enthusiasm for guns as I do.

Had a fantastic time, big thanks to all who were involved with putting it on. You people are an amazing bunch to hang out with. Maybe a bit crazy, but ton of fun was had. Huge thanks to skinny Rich for the food.

Great event as usual. I'm grateful to hang out with such a fantastic group of human beings who can *also* handle guns safely and competently.

This past weekend is one of the highlights of the year. Thanks everyone.



Edit to add:

Also, see new thread with match results as I have them so far.
