We only have two definite events scheduled for September & October:
Saturday, Sept.14: FAM Test… Yes, it’s time to test our skills once again with the Federal Air Marshall Test. Start Time will be 09:00 am this time. Further information available in the October, 2011 Archives, located under the <About> Tab (not the Monthly Archives drop-down on the right-hand sidebar).
Saturday, Oct. 26: Zombie Shoot! Time for the youngsters to come out to the Range and have FUN again! Start time, probably 10:00am, subject to change. This year we’ll be celebrating our third Shoot and we hope this time we’ve given enough advanced warning to bring out a larger crowd of young ones. I will publish a flyer to advertise this event and upload it for Members to download, print and hang up where appropriate/accessible… such as pawn shops, gun shops, bulletin boards, etc. Also, re-posting this event on other Forums that Members may belong to will be quite helpful. Remember to emphasize the fact that we’re catering to the younger set, open to the public and it’s Free.
Now, About other shooting events:
Here’s the deal, folks: with what’s remaining of this year, September and October are about it as far as scheduled events for shooters at the Range. We treat November & December as they come, because you never know… Remember, this is Oklahoma, everyone, and the weather can be anything during those two months.
So, my plan is simple: Let everyone know what I’d like to do (besides the 2 events already scheduled) and, hopefully, get some feedback about my suggestions, good, bad or
ugly indifferent. Make sense? Here goes:
We need to have at least one more handgun match scheduled, this time allowing 22′s… or have a strictly 22 LR Match by itself.
CMP Shoot, for sure. Remember, I must submit the request & payment a minimum of 30 days prior to the scheduled shoot, so it will have to be in October.
At least one, if not two, 22 LR Rifle Matches, perhaps a Bench Rest and some sort of Sanctioned-thru-the-CMP Match.
Again, at least one, if not two, Bowling Pin Shoots, providing our supply of pins holds out. We are getting low, but considering how long ago we bought this set of pins, we stand a fair chance of having two events.
Any and all of the above (except for the first two) can be changed, adjusted or whatever to better suit our Members’ needs. But, I can’t do that without some sort of feedback. I do know that I’ve heard that more & more people are interested in shooting 22′s, if for no other reason than that it’s perhaps the only affordable option out there these days. Sooo… if everybody wants 4 or more 22 LR Matches in the near future, let’s hear about it!
Last Note: Our next Meeting Night will be Monday night, September 16th, at 7:00 pm, at the Muskogee Public Library. Anyone newly joining or those renewing need to be there prior to 6:30 pm for the Membership Renewal Class.
