I talked to Kommandr recently and he said he couldn't get time off from work.

Update for me.. one of the guests has just come down with a flu and woke up with no voice this morning. Shes probably not coming, but insisting her fiance still come with. On the possible upside, it was her work schedule preventing us leaving friday.. so we might be there friday afternoon/evening.

I'm here now (helping him with chores needed to be done around the house prior to RR since I'm already here), and he's already gone to bed. He figured you'd probably meet at the bookstore, but guessed it'd be around 0900 or thereabouts. He'll check the postings and email after he gets up (around 0530 or so), and probably tell you 0830 is okay. But depending on what else is going on, he might say 0900 (9:00 AM) would be better (we still need to pull the signs and put them in the trailer, post them, etc., etc.). He's a morning person, I'm not (at least until I've had my coffee).

Does he have your number if he needs to/wants to call you?

Outside, it's been getting pretty cold in the mornings (in the mid 20's), so for those of you looking to camp out, PLEASE plan accordingly. When the sun comes up, it warms things up nicely, but the air is still pretty cold. Had a semi-nice sunset tonight. Don't let the cropping fool you, it was nice, but was only a very slim portion of the sky (with the clouds, I thought it was going to be better than it was).

Perhaps we'll get better ones in the next few nights! I hope you brought your NOR shirts! :P :P

The Mrs. will be at the store about 9 to open up.

I need to stick close to the house til the "blue" room shows up. Will be getting the signs out and sorting out targets.

By all means stop by the store and visit before you make the run out to the house.

For those heading out this way, just follow the signs:

After a while, you;ll see the camp through the trees:

When you walk up to the camp, you might see something like this:

And for those of you looking to get into the .45-70 competition, Flintlock Tom broke out his beautiful new High Wall:

We picked up some paint to repaint the metal targets to help identify the ones to be shot only by .22's and handgun rounds. A couple of the large softer targets are starting to look like Swiss Cheese! Flintlock Tom is tent camping at the range/camp, and we told him it's going to get pretty chilly - possibly down in the 20's!! We hope all that food from Pizza Hut this evening helps keep him warm!! :D :D ;)

Dinochrome and Little Sister are here as well. We hope to see some many more of you tomorrow!!

The first day is written in the history books.

Ten people at dinner last nite. Two of which were new folks. :D We even had Birthday Cake for Dinochrome. There were 5 NoR shirts at dinner. Kim would be proud.

At the range we had 12 or 13 shooters and 1 visitor.

New targets are holding up well. 1" steel round at about 60-65 yards is heavily pocked, but not punctured. 1/2" diamond plate at 300 yard has lots of dimples and only a couple of holes in it. The 265 yard steel plate is also heavily dimpled with quite a few holes in it. It has been left in place and someone else is taking advantage of it, which is okay by me.

The .45-70 challenge took place mid-afternoon. There were 4 competitors and the winner was using a borrowed Buffalo Classic and borrowed ammunition. Two Buffalo Classics, a Sharps and a Highwall were the competition guns. JohnOC was the big winner.

The road into the site has seen some maintenance and is not nearly as rough as it has been.

The weather was absolutely perfect. Very light to no breeze all day yesterday.

I'm starting to think we may have to do this again.
