The (first) Southwest Florida Blogshoot (catered by The Queen Of The World) is hard up upon us, and it looks like we will have enough people that I might be able to reserve the 200 yard private rifle and pistol range at the gun club. I need to call them to reserve it on Thursday, so I need a final nose count from everyone.
What I need from you: Leave a comment saying that (a) you are coming and (b) the total number coming with you (some of you have said that you were going to bring your better half or a friend).
This is the Venue:
When: Saturday, November 14 at 12:30 PM
Where: Manatee Gun and Archery Club, 1805 Logue Rd, Myakka City, FL 34251
The Cost: The range will charge $20 for a half day's shooting on the public range, but it will be $15 for the private range if we get 15 people (and thus the request for the nose count). The public ranges have 100, 200, and 300 yard ranges, plus a 25 yard pistol range. The private range has 25 to 200 yard rifle/pistol lanes. All Ranges are covered, but it looks like Tropical Storm Eta might (hopefully) be gone by then. Please check the gun club web site for range rules - footwear, eye and ear protection, (for the ladies) nothing low cut, etc.*
The Queen Of The World is planning to bring lunch. Charlie Foxtrot, thanks for the offer of the crock pot of beans, but I don't think that there's electricity. In any case, The Queen Of The World is a Force of Nature when she is planning an event, and she is planning this is full force.
The following people have said they are coming:
Kevin Creighton (Ammoman)
Please confirm with a headcount and I will reserve the range.
* Unless you plan on dong the Hot Brass Dance, of course.
