8th Annual TexasCowboy Memorial Shoot ~ Planning Thread
TheMom

Posted on 10/14/2012 2:59:02 PM PDT by TheMom

Because everyone had such a great time at the last shoot we are anxious for the next one.

The date for the 8th Annual TCMS shoot will be June 8th, 2013 and will be held at Dietz Gun Shop and Shooting Range, in New Braunfels, TX. Providing we get the OK from Mr. Dietz – I will call him this week to discuss our coming to the range.

Staying in the Pelican Bay cottages this year was a stroke of genius, so we will again be staying in cottages. The cottage pick for this shoot is the Cypress Creek Cottages, in Wimberley, TX. There are only twelve cottages at this place, and as of this writing 7 of them have been reserved. NOTE: They require full payment at the time the reservations are made. Wimberley also has some very nice hotels in the area in the event all the cottages get rented.

Making it a three & a half day weekend will be the plans for many of us, that way we can enjoy the area and have lots of porch time.

The Friday night dinner & Saturday breakfast places have not yet been decided. There is still plenty of time to figure out those details. Saturday after the shoot lunch will be provided by our own chef ~ cpdiii (Thanks Charlie!). Suggestions for the Saturday night meal are more than welcome.

My thanks to mylife, penelopesire, LuvW, BuckeyeTexan and NYTexan for their help in getting these plans going.

I know folks who shoot at Lone Star and they have nothing but good things to say about the range!!

Matt Billingsley who started the place was tragically killed in an accident out there last year while operating heavy equipment. He had just been married and his wife is trying to stick it out and continue what he started.

Good call on going to Lone Star.

It looks like a decent place, and the person I talked to on the phone (John) was very helpful. The only negative thing I can say about the place is they suck at returning email. ;-)

Yeah, that’s really my favorite place down there. By far the best bang for the buck. And the peach cobbler is very very good!!!

Hey, I might actually get to go to this one!! I think I can get to Lone Star in about 45 mins. But I’ve never been there.

WOOT!!!

Thanks for everything, Mom. You really know how to wrangle them dogies! You’re the backbone of the Shoot. It’s great that you take no rudeness and are willing to move venues if someone gives you guff.

I am so looking forward to seeing everyone again.

And there is always Luling City Market just down the road. They don’t have a web site, but you get the idea from this TX monthly post.

You can’t go wrong with any of these places.

Kreuz (pronounced Krite’s) is the most expensive if I remember correctly.

Cool, I and the rest of the folks North of Austin can take the 80 mph tollway. From just north of Georgetown. :) Hoping I can make it. Should be able to, I'll probably be unemployed, because both the House and Senate have passed appropriations bills prohibiting FY2013 and beyond spending on our project. The Senate just 7 or so hours ago.

But O may veto the final bill, since it also prohibits transferring GitMo detainees from being moved to the US.

What happened with Deitz? Mrs. Deitz was rude to me.

To paraphrase Woodrow F. Call, "I hate rude behavior in a person, I won't tolerate it"

Being rude to Mrs. Mom can be hazardous to your health and financial well being. :)

I am looking forward to June 8th! charlie

Damn, brother. I think it would be worth stretching however hard I had to, if I could get a crack at shooting one of your fine rifles. Man, those look sweet.

Honestly, nothing would be better than getting to meet a bunch of my fellow Texas Freeps in person. That would be the real treat.

Me and Mommy are putting some beans back into the business in early 2013, so finances should have improved enough for me to afford the hike by June. I’m honestly going to give it the old college try this year. Thanks for the reminder! (and the tease!)

The Henry in .45 Long Colt has the recoil of a .22.

I’m thinking the 45.70 GOV might be a little stouter!

Hope to see you there.

I might just get me an old pickle jar and start throwing my loose change in there to make sure :-) I'll bring my .40 S&W and anything else I can scrounge up by then.

For those not familiar with the round this is a 12 gauge shotgun cartridge next to the 45.70 Gov. Kinda puts it into perspective.

Same here, Lady. I've got to hustle to make it happen by next June, but I think we're going to have a better year than last. I'm feeling confident we'll make it this time around.

Looks that way, but users report that the recoil isn't bad at all. Has something to do with the bullpup design, from what I recall. My wife already wants one for her birthday next summer.

Well O didn’t veto the bill, so the chance of being umemployed have gone up quite a bit. Depends on what happens before March 1, when the Sequesration cutting must begin, if they are to have a snowball’s chance in hell of making the cuts. They’ve (all 3 departments of the DoD) already stopped issuing contracts for major maintenance for the last half of the fiscal year, April through September.

The Tollway is 80MPH around the east side of Austin. But the part the goes to Lockhart is 85 MPH. A couple of weeks ago, La Gata and I were in San Antonio, out by Randolph AFB, and decided to explore the tollway.

Woo FReeping Hoo. 85 mph, and being passed, but light traffic.

By the time of the shoot, we’ll probably be declared an illegal armed assembly, and be raided. I pity the poor BATFE bastids who draw that duty.

That declaration would likely be made in one of the lesser states.

I rather imagine we'd get some assistance in the form of "observers" here in the event of enforcement.
