This go round we will not be taking a break for lunch, with the rotation times there will be plenty of time for you guys to graze between events. We will start the 200 yard team shoot immediately at the end of the drop 15. This may give us time to shoot a rowjimmy event or just relax a bit earlier depending on interest. Once again, a big thanks for coming to hang out.

3rd in, 14th on the list. I'm just saying. I would have thought my consistent unreserved commitment to this gathering of deplorables, would have got me further up the guest list.

See, shit like this matters. I don't care that DC and Seattle are going to hell in a handbasket, I do care that I'm not third on the list. A 13th place participation trophy is racist. Is it because I'm black? I'm feeling traumatised.

Not sure the current event qualifies as the Redheaded Stepchild event, but we will be doing the Ginger Fifth Challenge

Here is what we've settled on for this April's event



1 popper at 200 yards with a single shot

Weapon must not have been fired on Sunday

Iron sight only is non negotiable

Shot is to be taken from a bare bench, with no aids other than the bench itself, and your own limbs (no bags, no slings, no bipods, no sleds, just a bare bench, you, and your weapon)

Popper must fall for shooter to advance

All shooters falling the popper advance to the clay pigeon shootout. Rules for shootout are as follows

Clay pigeons at 100 yards using same weapon as the 200 yard shot

Each shooter will have 1 pigeon to hit, and 1 shot to hit it with

Missed birds are eliminated shooters

Birds will be reset each round

Last shooter standing wins the Ginger Fifth

See? I told that secretary of mine that list had to be in the proper order to eliminate any butthurt. And whose on the top of the list now? There's probably going to be a serious beating administered today over this. When you finally come out of your safe space I'll tell you all about it.

Pretty sure I'll be there too. With some in tow. Not sure how many. I'm working on about four. I don't think they will all come, but they might.

Gents, I plan to make this WA shoot and/or the OR shoot. It seems there is a pretty big overlap of the same folks at both. Unfortunately Blondzilla will probably not make it and I will just be a quick FIFO.

The travel logistics look better for WA, but my business schedule will dictate a lot too and the GA shoot is the weekend after WA.

We will see how it plays out, but I hope to see you all this spring somewhere.

There is a fair amount of overlap in the individuals that attend. I hope you can make it to this shoot. However, be forewarned that most of the guys and gals who attend are totally deplorable.
