Chinquapin SV Oktoberfest is On!

Well schuetzen fans, it looks like the bionic frog leg has been successfully installed and help is on the way for preparing and repairing the BMC range for our event to be held on 18 and 19 October.  In addition to our all of our usual events we will experiment with the “new” ASSRA Benchrest Group Targets.  Also, on Saturday (the 19th) we will have a “revival” of the Bear Creek Gathering with shooting and general oohing and ahing with old pre-1900 type collectible guns of all types.

Camping as always is available as well as three or more motels nearby and reasonably priced. Lunch will be served both days for shooters and guests.  Remember, you must be present to attend!

Maybe I should explain further the “new T-11” target and the event it will bring.  It’s a six bull target shot with 22s at 100 yds.  We’ll make it an any sights event.  As explained to me by Jeff Schultz, the first bull is a sighter, then the other 5 each get 5 shots for group size.  The average of these five scores is the shooter’s event score.

We’ve got a pack of 100 of these in now so we can see how we like the game, since so many of our group have been gravitating toward 22 BR for score.   Bring your pet rimfire guns with lots of ammo!  Wink

100 of the T-11 might not be enough.
I'm bringing tin, as usual; planning on both days.

Things are starting to fall into place.  Went to Brushy Mtn Club this afternoon and evening for the monthly meeting.  As last year, the Trap club will be having an event on Saturday, so we will share lunch with them.  This gives me free rein to do something cool for Friday's lunch!  Wink

As previously announced, we will have all of the targets/events available in the past shoots plus the new rimfire bench rest for group target recently added by ASSRA.  Also, on Saturday we will have a revival of the "Bear Creek Gathering" for those who like their shooting event with an extra heavy dash of socializing. (Who do we know like that??  Roll Eyes )

See you there!

Update;  the Bear Creek Bunch discovered they had a conflict... a muzzle loading shoot somewhere else, so they won't be joining us this time after all.  OTOH, it appears that we will have a good crowd of participants for schuetzen, so that's what counts.  It would be helpful if those of you who are planning to attend, especially the campers, would drop me a PM to help with planning.

I just got a call that the new batch of cardboard for target backers is in.  I'll be hauling that to the range this afternoon.  The plan is to replace all wood on the 200 yard frames and most if not all on the 100 yard frames.  Folks are coming Wed and Thurs to help with set up and other prep work, so I have high hopes of a great weekend.

Remember, you must be present to attend!

Well we lost a day today to rain.  Embarrassed  I had hoped we would get the bush hog work done today, but now we'll start that first thing in the morning while putting up the new wood for the target frames and trim cardboard for the backers.  Smiley

A couple of our "traveling" shooters are coming in early so they'll be ready to start first thing Friday... they have also said they want to help with prep work, so we should be good to go.  It's not too late for some of you to put your rifle and kit in your truck and come to Brushy Mountain!  Cool

We are here on a crisp October morning at beautiful Brushy Mountain Club. All 10 of our benches are occupied with shooters and the smell of gunpowder is in the air.  Yes Virginia, there is a Schützen-Fest!  Cool
