    Our next Rimfire event is Saturday May 12th. I'll be out there at 7:30 setting up. Please be on the range by 8:30 for registration. Safety brief starts at 9.

    Anything chambered in .22lr. 4 stages of pistol (20-60') and 4 stages of rifle (20-105'). Fun for the whole family. All experience levels welcome.

    Awards for Overall Champion, Top Lady, Top Youth, Top Pistol and Top Rifle. There's always some leftover prizes that get raffled off to those who stick around to the end.

    $5 per gun for members. $7.50 per gun for non-members. Lunch is included (not making promises but that BBQ pork really did turn out well last time...)

    I might make a showing at this. Depends on whether I can convince myself to wake up early enough to make the drive out there. :rolleyes:

    I'm planning on being there for both pistol and rifle.

    @Kimber Custom I really appreciate you putting on these events. Is there anything I can do to help out? Cash donation, show up early to set up, get something for the prize table, etc?

    @Joe Link and I will be there early to help set up. I'll come up for something for the table!

    Joe doesn't know I'm volunteering him for this... but I'll make it happen.

    Can anyone recommend a decent local roadhouse near the range for the weary traveler?

    Sunnyside Inn and Suites is the least expensive option at $59 a night. 3 star google reviews.

    If you want to step up to a 4 star google review there's a little cluster of 3 for right around $100 a night right where 212 and I 205 meet.

    Are compensators allowed for the .22 shoot?

    I called them both & mysteriously that great sounding 1 night fee has grown ominously very much closer to $100/night. The Sandy local was well over my budget as well.

    Other family events may change my plans to attend.
    However, the lure of this May event has me interested in attending. I may just get up for early breakfast & hit the road.

    I haven't seen much discussed on 'equipment'.

    Would there be carbine, pistol & revolver in both iron sights & optic? Suppose really little difference in my favorite category...."geezer-22"; the 'speed steel' title may be a bit of a misnomer;)

    Bummer about the price. I was just using Google Maps so nothing from personal experience.

    I did a detailed write up on the .22 challenge in the May Newsletter: http://douglasridge.org/newsmay18.pdf

    Why don't you use Airbnb or VRBO? I use both all the time and have had nothing but great luck with them.

    never heard of the VRBO & the other just seemed over the rainbow for "Estacada"....but that is an idea I will explore, thanks.
