    If there are any spots left on the line for Nov. 9-10 then I may be able to show up. However, it's literally going to be a last minute decision. I'm in the process of rebuilding my .22. The last part doesn't get here until a week before the shoot, and then I have to put everything back together and zero it.

    Hope you make it. Don't worry too much about being zeroed. We can make that happen on the line.

    Well Ben, I don't know what strange universal forces keep preventing me from attending, and it's always work related! I just found out I'll be starting a new work gig THAT weekend. All I want is my f-ing Rifleman patch, and I can't get the damned thing NOT because I'm a lousy shot, but because I can't shoot!

    Jeff, there's always the Ariel event too...I might try to make it. I shot my Marlin 795 at Stevenson last month and was pretty happy with it except for awkward mag changes. I did a little work on my 10/22 and would like to try it out again.

    Is it possible to attend just one day? I'm really interested in the education and the fundamentals of marksmanship. If I come on Sunday am I missing out on a lot of what is covered on Saturday?

    Yes, you can come to just one day. Saturday is spent with a stronger emphasis on instruction and we go through about 150 rounds. Sunday we review everything from Saturday but at a much faster pace. We will go through 250-300 rounds on Sunday.

    Still have a handful of spots on the line. The Ariel, WA shoot has sold out so this is your last metro area opportunity until next year.

    Amazing shoot this morning. 36 shooters on the line including 3 center fire. Ironbar made us proud. Cleared both his red coats and shot rifleman score on both AQT's. Huzzah!

    A few pictures from today: Eagle Creek Nov 9 & 10 AAR

    Should have a little room on the line tomorrow if someone wants to be a walk on.

    Indeed I did, three times! Like Ironbar, the key for me was using a scope so I could see the target.

    Good to meet you too Ironbar, you missed a nice sunny day on Sunday!

    My wife was along this weekend too, she enjoyed it so much that she wants to come back for another one to shoot Rifleman.

    Hey Kimber, why isn't there anything scheduled for 2014 yet?

    Most ranges are still working on their 2014 calendars. I have requested Feb 15/16 and Apr 26/27 but I haven't heard if I've gotten those dates yet or not. I'll be at the board meeting on the 21st where I hope to get some feedback.

    I've requested that Feb date to be a Know Distance Event (advanced Appleseed). We will be center fire only. Sat will be spent shooting 25-200m (run kind of like a typical Sunday, quick review and shoot AQT's, add in data books and getting 100 and 200m sight settings). Then Sunday will be getting data at 300 and 400m and shoot full distance AQT's (100, 200, 300 and 400m).

    It's a bit of a long shot. Shooting past 200y requires the range to be shut down so getting the club to agree for free may be too much to ask but since it's 'rainy season' and V-day weekend I'm hoping they will be amicable to the idea. Again, I hope to get more data on the 21st.
