    Just a heads up -- we don't get to camp there until Friday :deal

    though I recall that 1911fan said he had plenty of tent space :hide

    Also, peterman, NoPoChicken won't be able to make it, so she asked that her money be applied towards your stay :freaky

    Still true, and a garage, and beer, and a county fair next door. Y'all come!

    Howdy All,

    I camped last night at "Dangerous Don" place in Cashmere, that means I am about 25 miles from the gun club. When can we show up at the gun club grounds, will there be someone there to direct those of us who are driving hard tents to where we should park?

    Gate will be open at noon. I'm trying to get off early, but not sure if I'll be able to be there before 5ish. Please hold off on shooting until I've gotten waivers signed and can walk you through what's open. Today is racetrackprep day so the upper ranges are closed.
    PM me for phone number if needed. See you this afternoon!!!!

    Oh yeah, and I got the best photos :deal With my iPhone4, no less :evil


    Some of the best shots...
