7th Annual TexasCowboy Memorial Shoot - Planning Thread
4-22-2012 | TheMom

Posted on 04/22/2012 7:37:27 AM PDT by TheMom

Planning has begun for the 7th Annual TexasCowboy Memorial Shoot.

This year’s shoot will be held at Schwenke’s Rifle & Pistol Range, 4407 FM 1069, Aransas Pass, TX. Which is a few miles north of Corpus Christi.

The date of the shoot is October 6th, which is Columbus Day weekend.

I have not talked to the range owner yet to see if we can cook on the range. If not, we will head over here for food & more fun. What food & who cooks has yet to be determined. I’m thinking, since we will be on the coast, we should have seafood.

Several of us will be staying in the cottages at that resort. The cottages sleep 2 ~ 4 people; they are a one bedroom with a fold out queen couch. I am going to reserve four cottages so that we will have a common area where we can eat & socialize. Let me know if you want to stay in one of them.

It should be noted that a festival will be held the same weekend as the shoot.

That’s it for now . . .

The Seafair doesn’t open on Friday until 5:00 p.m..

I suggest we visit Lady Lex. Also, while in the area you have got to see the Science on a Sphere presentation http://sos.noaa.gov/What_is_SOS/index.html ~ they have presentations at 2:00 & 3:00. Saturday’s presentation is a compilation of what is shown during the week.

They pulled the same crap at the Fair across the street from work this year.

You’re just jonesing for a corny dog and some fries for lunch, and they don’t open till after you’ve gone home for the day!

Oh well. I went back on the last night, had a cold beer, a corny dog and watched the Ray Wylie Hubbard concert for less than $10.

Timing is everything LOL

Hubby and I are driving the whole way. Mylife and NYTexan are two more people I am really looking forward to meeting.

BuckeyeTexan and I will have some things to talk about as well. I’m kind of an old, beat-up version of her, and we’ll probably get along fine.

It would be considerate of you and your better half (did I just say that?) to arrive in Fort Worth on Wednesday before the shoot so that we can all partake in some cultural activities at the Stockyards for dinner and such other activities...(Texas hospitality should not be slighted ;^)

We can caravan to South Texas from here on Thursday.

Yes, the wife is usually the better half, but in this case, you used the correct term for the right spouse.

Thank you so much for the invitation. I have sent Hubby the link so he may be able to arrange his schedule accordingly.

It may not be possible for him to get away another day earlier, but I’m sure that he will try mightily to do so.

Hubby! We haven’t had a vacation since Niagara Falls. Just sayin’.

I’m really looking forward to it! It will be nice to be able to associate personalities with the names on FR and the lovely faces in the photos from the last Shoot.

All Hubby needs is an address and the time we should be there, assuming he can get off that extra day or two.

Caravaning will take some of the tedium out of the long drive.

I just got home and the AC seems to have conked out.
Its all iced up.
I turned it off to thaw and turned on a window unit and placed all the ceiling fans on high.

Wish me luck, its supposed to be 106 today.
Its 98 now and 78 in the house.

Did we decide to stay in the cottages Thursday night?

If so, I guess I’d better make a reservation.

Depending on how busy he is at work, I don’t know (yet) if Eaker will drive down with me on Thursday.

Buckeye - to save $$$, we can bunk together Thursday night.

Ugh. I feel for ya. My A/C went out too. (Saturday) The repairman had trouble finding a part, so we had to pull window units out of our guesthouse and use them all week. It has been a miserable week. But it’s fixed now. The repairman just left.

Run a hose out there on the condenser to melt that ice.

If you have room in the car, will you do me a gigantic favor?

Buckeyes should be ripened and falling from the trees at the end of September and early October. Could you gather 20-40 for me and bring them with you? I want them to make some Christmas ornaments.

If you don’t have room or time, don’t worry about it. I’ll just buy them online.
