I'll be there. Except if it's going to snow again. Asthma, allergies, sleeping in a tent during snow are not good together.

You qualify for a bubble, boy.

See you soon.

I'll be there. I'm bringing Greg, Jonathan, and Sophia. Natalie is driving herself from Utah to arrive Friday evening.

Total of 5.

If there's no sportsnut, TR, or tailback, it won't be the same. Hope you guys (and everyone else that usually comes) can make this thing.

Hope to see you soon.

While I've done a decent job of showing up before dinner on Thursday nights the last couple of times (if I remember correctly...), I'm not going to make it until Friday morning this year.

Evelyn (daughter Number Two) has turned in her mission paperwork to the church, and has been called to serve in Mexico. She reports to Mexico City Missionary Training Center on 23 July of this year, and will be serving in Merida (jungle part of the Yucatan peninsula - 40% native Mayan language speakers...).

Anyway, it's her birthday on June 20th (Thursday of the shoot...), and it may be her last birthday at home. I'm gonna be there for whatever is happening. Jonathan and I will pack the Family Truckster Thursday, and we'll leave by 5:30AM Friday. Plan is to be in camp to throw steel out for the handgun events by 8:30AM Friday morning.

While I had intended to make this one, current financial restrictions negate making the trip. Jeff, we'll be praying for Evelyns' training and missions trip, hope she has a wonderful experience.

Rich - I'm really sorry you're not making it this year!

Thanks a bunch. Evelyn is a sweet girl and a hard worker; I'm positive it will be a win for her and for the people she is serving.

Hope to see you at the fall Washington shoot.

May not be making that one either. Will have to wait and see how this year plays out for me. Hope you all have a grand time of it.

Terry -

Still going to make it by 0800 for the Shooter Safety Meeting Friday morning. Gonna run the timer at the Cowboy Challenge (or whatever that first handgun thing is called...).

Natalie isn't driving out from Utah any more, due to the questionable state of the Red Durango (378K miles...). She's flying into Redmond at noon Friday, and she's staying with us at the FAL Shoot.

But either myself and / or Jonathan is going to go get her. We're working on what that actually looks like, so i may not be helping with whatever else I meant to help with during that 2+ hour drive time.

I've been contemplating heading down early on Saturday morning and getting there noonish just to schmooze with some of you guys I haven't seen since 2016.
I can sleep in SuperFord and head back the next day... If work allows it.

Glad you can make it, Ken.

I haven't posted I'll be there yet, but have an appointment on June 18th with the surgeon to schedule the next surgery on my total knee replacement surgery. Unless he demands I have the surgery ASAP it can wait till after the FAL shoot.
What's another couple weeks of hell anyway...

As much as I really wanted to do this, I have some unexpected financial squeezes that aren't going to allow it. Maybe next time.

Oh hey. We do have the upcoming Fall shoot in Washington. (Shameless Plug)

Not for the faint of heart for sure...was surprised I didn't find any chit on my seats. Y'all must've been wear'in diapers.

I'm bringing more people:

me
Natalie
Jonathan
Meredith
Sophia

That's 4/5ths of the kids, so not bad...

Greg (dad)
Justin Dodge

My buddy Jesse is out. Dad's not doing well, so he's going to the Right Coast. My other buddy, Brandon, is most likely out, but he's trying to make it.


We're a total of 7 now.

Only problem was a wet crotch from you spilling
my drink with your damn near the ditch driving.

Well,,,

I'm pretty sure the wet crotch was just excitement, and I needed the camber provided by the ditch to drift corners...

Sir!
Great to hear from you. Hope the best for your recovery. I keep a few boxes of x54R on hand, just in case the PSL makes it out to camp again. I always wanted to run that one...
