June Chinquapin Schuetzenfest Note Date Correction

Print Post  
Spring has come (at least on the calendar) and an old manís thoughts turn to Schuetzen.† We will have our annual June event this year on Friday the 28th and Saturday the 29th. As luck would have it, the BMC Skeet Tournament this year will fall the weekend after the Fourth, so we have the facility pretty much to ourselves.†

On Saturday this year we are also inviting elements of the old Bear Creek Gathering to come and fellowship with us, especially in the afternoon where in past years many of us have been running out of steam.† These guys are really ďintoĒ older guns and accessories and there will probably be some interesting things available for sale and trade.

CORRECTION:  I was suffering from FFS (Fat Finger Syndrome) and mistyped the dates.  The dates are still as previously posted, the 28th and 29th of June - the last Friday and Saturday of the month.  Mea culpa, mea maxima culpa!

Thanks, ledball and I like you too!  I'd like you even better if you'd come back here and shoot with us again.  I can't guarantee we won't have another monster storm, but if you come back and we DO have another in-line hurricane, you'll be banned from BMC for life.  Grin Grin Grin

PS  Believe it or not, Mom is still hanging on @ 95.  We lost my Dad two years ago this month, but they had a great run... we celebrated their 70th Anniversary the August before his passing.  Smiley

Just a month and a half left until the Great Chinquapin June Schuetzenfest!  Make your plans now to attend.  We will have at least 12 "formal" campsites (with electric and water hookups) and near unlimited "dry" camping for you tent types.

We will offer the whole program offered in the past as well as the new bench rest event for the newly developed target.  Please drop me a PM if you are planning on attending (and which days) so I can arrange food and campsites.

Remember, you must be present to attend!

Ten of the permanent (cast concrete on cinderblock pilings) plus usually a couple of temporary benches if needed (better for offhand.) In addition, black powder shooters with the older classic stuff can do some shooting to 50 yards (for fun.)

Bunches of camping available of course.  They were even talking about adding a couple more sites with water and power, but we can get "rough camping" for a near-infinite number of tents or pick up campers. 

Last week I talked with several members of the North-South Skirmish Association, and we will likely have some more cross over participation as well.
