Actually we've been married for 88 years. 44 for her and 44 for me.
Congrats to both of you Roy and Mrs. Roy. That is quite an accomplishment.

LONG RANGE RENDEVOUX----UPDATE

I had postponed doing this since it looked like I would have to have back surgery. Well, that is not going to take place (at least for now) so...............this gathering will take place the 3rd week of May near Carey, Idaho. It would be friday, saturday and sunday the 18th, 19th and 20th.
Here is what it would entail. First of all, it is a long range HUNTING rendevoux---it is NOT a sniper competition. What I am trying to accomplish is getting a bunch of guys together for a weekend of shooting and fun, exchange ideas, styles, equipment, swap meet, "friendly" competitions, etc. It can be whatever we want it to be. We can shoot uphill, downhill (you'll have to hike!) and we can shoot out to at least 1.5 miles or maybe even farther. This is NOT a school. How I envision the targets set up is that some would be a novelty distances but for the most part, they would all be hunting specific. There is alot of knowledge and experience on this site and it would be great to meet some of you and share it all.
The accomodations are this:
400 acre private ranch facililty with dormitory style housing. The dorm has 16 bunks in 7 different rooms, 2 queen beds in two bedrooms, a community room that can hold several cots. I am also trying to get a flatscreen for evening activites---so bring your cd's........ Fire code says 22 people and the dorm has a really nice commercial kitchen. It is a great place to hold an event such as this.
I have several volunteers that will help cook and just in general help out. I have a greek buddy who will be barbecuing a pig over a spit and I'll do ribeyes one night plus we'll provide lunches and breakfasts. Basically it will be a long weekend shooting with your newfound buddies. I live on and manage the ranch for an elderly woman who lives away and she has given me the okay to use it as I wish. The facility was a boys ranch and that is what it is set up for--it is fully licensed and insured.
The cost for this weekend is $300.00. I would ask for a deposit of half up front and I am going to have to limit it to 25 shooters. There is room on the ranch for someone who wants to "tent" it if they wish. I need at least 10 shooters to make a go of it.
When I had originally put out this information, I received a ton of different requests---I don't have the time to list them all nor do I really care to. In any case, the price is set for the weekend, no matter how many lunches, breakfasts, dinners you eat, etc. etc. This is designed for a "guys" weekend, I cannot host children, mother in laws or animals. (I have way too many myself---animals, that is)
This is a "first" and if it goes well, I'll host others down the road.

I can be reached at 208-471-0021 if you wish to chat----I DO NOT TEXT!
My phone is just that---it rings, I pick it up and I talk.

My personal email is mtnwrunner@yahoo.com

Thanks!

Randy

Randy.....I like the clarity and the setup overall! I think the price is very fair and it sounds like a great time. Unfortunately for me, I will probably not have time off work this year. I will look forward to hearing about the whole event. Good luck and God bless.....Rich

I wish I could go but momma is due with our second kid within a few week of that so it looks like I'm going to have to pass unless I can sneak out for a long day and run over there. It's only about 2 1/2 hours from me.
