    Putting this out here early so you can make plans to attend this year. If you came last year, you know that you want to come back. If you were not here last year, you read the stories and saw the pictures. You know that you want to be a part of this one.

    The date is Saturday October 19, 2019. Yeah, it's a long way off but will be here before you know it.

    Got the neck brace off yesterday and the doctor said I'm healing up nicely from my fusion surgery. Making plans to come out. Can't wait.

    Just like last year, I have to wait on the new Drill schedule for next year to get published in Aug/Sept. We typically Drill the third weekend of the month, and guess what Oct 19th is lol.
    There are ways to be excused from attendance (last year I had already used my one yearly excused), so I'll explore that option when the schedule is published. Just won't know until basically last minute.

    Thanks Geezer. I would have already come over and checked out the place but I've been in a neck brace for the past two months but I'm feeling a little better now so I'm definitely going to come by. I loved seeing all the pictures from the get together a few months ago but I was in no shape to make it out then.

    I'm in and not leaving early. I say we make avatar name tags since real names are too hard to remember. I remember Greg cause he was my Battery Oaks Shoot fest "wife", now he will say I was the "wife" because we shared a wood spool but that's not how it works. The guy that lets the other guy shoot his new 300blkout isn't the range "wife".

    @DesignMine makes name tags. I have one with one of my avatars, my forum name, and my real name on it. Y’all got 6 months to order one :D

    Yes, Billys wife, Ronnie Sue will be the voice of reason that weekend. That’s about as adult as it gets
