The fall weather pattern has been cool nights, above freezing, little to no wind, no rain in the foreseeable future.

Tomorrow, the 1st, windy, 20+ mph forecast with 25% chance of rain. Sunday 82% chance of rain. This has just shown up in the last couple of days. :cry:

Just because it is forecast does not mean it will happen. Still going forward.

Today is the mad dash of preparations and packing. Though the hotel simplifies it a little.
Tonight is the trick-or-treating.. tomorrow is the leaving early to get up there with plenty of daylight.

Looking forward to it!

Wish I could have made it this year but them's the breaks. Y'all have fun! I will try to put a shooting fiesta together for 2015....

Only two forum members, JohnOC and myself, so far. Got today to go. Total of 9 of us shooting yesterday. This includes two lads who have not yet reached their teens!

The weather cooperated. We has a few drops of rain, but not enough to cover the guns. I only brought 14 long guns.

Really was pleased with my 1884 Trap Door Springfield. I had never shot it before so I loaded up some "carbine" loads. 55 grains of 2F Goex behind 405 grain Flat Point round nose bullets. Really nice to shoot.

Went through a couple boxes of clay pigeons yesterday with my electric whirlybird trap. Really like that thing too.

Did not discuss forum politics. BUT will probably skip RR next year unless there is a clamor for it. There needs to be an occasion for forum members to meet up and visit. Shooting at the same time helps justify the travel. RR has been slowing down considerably for the last few years. It takes quite a bit of work to pull it all together and I need to consider that before I run it again. I know about many issues that many of you face and life gets in the way of socializing.

Been that way for the fiesta. Smallest was 8 people best was 32. I got very busy this year and just had to skip it. Maybe if things go the way I hope we can go on tour....

If we had a decent range here (Fort Bliss Rod and Gun would require a small fortune to shoot there and they wouldn't let us do a lot), I'd volunteer to run one in El Paso. With the economy right now, it's hard to plan long trips anywhere.

Over and done for another RR.

Three of us today. Very laid back. Richard brought out his Johnson. VERY interesting rifle. Very ahead of his time.

Tannerite can be packaged in ziplock bags and will still toss rocks 50-75 feet in the air!

So far, travel time has been the issue for me. I need one of Termite's little planes.
Note to self: start reading sig lines. They're actually quite amusing. :D

missed all the fun again.

Not sure yet whether we'll be in Flagstaff New Year's again this year.
