A Square, you are first on the list.:hndgn:

Thinking of starting out with a one day deal. Who knows if you'll even like stinkpot??? It could be more than a name you know.
I thought maybe starting out with a high dollar shoot, say 0.25 each in a pot and high score takes all. :grin:
After that Burgers and a cool beverage of choice.
BSing? I have never known a person on this board to do anything of the kind.

Other than that I'm open to suggestions.
Anyone have a date they would like or one that they can't make? A weekend in June before the skeeters get real bad might be a good idea.

I practically live in Uptown Minneapolis... (well if you count the amount of time I spend there) Just say when and I'll try to get the day off.

We're members of the Oakdale Gunclub in Lake Elmo. They start public shooting in June 2, so we'd have to do it in May I think. If a guest shoots during public hours, they have to pay, it's 15.00 for the day.

Here's a link

The only one ive ever gone to is the burnsville range, but i dont think its too well suited to getting a lot of people together.

Okay, to keep the ball rolling. :Ola:

After talking to Stinkpot, I'm thinking a 1 day shoot at the Oakdale gun club before they open to the public. I Checked the calendar for May 17 and May 24. For the 17th the 100 yd range is being used, with the 50 and 200 yd ranges open. On the 24th the schedule is open for all ranges. Either weekend will work for me, but to nail this down how does Sat May 24th rain or shine sound? If the 17th is better let me know.

Anyone that is interested send me a PM with your email address so that we can work out details. There will have to be food and showoff/brag time so we can setup where to do that also.

The first thing I did was to look when Memorial day was so I didn't pick that weekend. And sure enough I spaced out and picked it.

How about Sat May 10th instead? I like these guys.

They have cowboy action shooting, rondevous, in may they're having a vietnam re-enactment for a whole weekend. Then they have the big shooters round-up in August. When those buildings are open, they are pretty cool. The gunsmith shop is supposed to be a copy of the winchester shop, I beleive.
