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.

"You and I can arm wrestle ... or I can bring you a target with my face on it!" So, you actually don't want my ilk to spoil the festivities, but you want to sound accomodating? ... I use a wheelchair to get around my home and for shopping, so I can carry things in my teeth. Arms drive non-electric chairs. You really don't want to embarrass yourself arm wrestling me. And as to the target, well, Homeland has already got targets with just folks on them, for storm trooper practice. I don't use those targets, either.

When you use a chair to get around, and without a spouse to assist, extended traveling is an amazing hastle.

So, you actually don't want my ilk to spoil the festivities, but you want to sound accomodating?

That's not it at all! I was just being silly given our history. I thought some humor was appropriate and would express my hope that you will join us. You are absolutely most welcome to attend. I hope you will consider it.

You really don't want to embarrass yourself arm wrestling me.

I don't want to embarrass myself competing with gunner in bows & arrows either, but I'm gonna. What could be more fun than taunting me while I get my butt kicked?

Jim and Sheila Robinson attended last year's shoot in wheelchairs. We accommodated their needs without incident. I'm sure we can accommodate yours. You'll find that we're a very friendly bunch and are happy to help a FRiend in need. At TCMS, there are no "ilks" just FRiends.

In fact, Lazamataz needs a bunk mate. Perhaps you & he could share a cottage. Then you'd have someone to assist who was staying with you.

I’m sure Buckeye was just funnin’ ya.

Believe it or not, folks with different viewpoints on things
miraculously get along just fine at TCMS, even come out of
the deal with a newfound appreciation for each other.

True story.

Why it’s even been noted that the chief Palin cheerleader
gets along just dandy with the chief Palin basher who also
happens to be one of the most contentious buttholes in all of FR.

Seen it with my own eyes.

It’d be great if you could make it.

Two more months until the shoot ping!

There is still one cottage available at Cypress Creek Cottages, http://www.cypresscreekcottages.org/, you have until the end of this month to reserve it. You will need to call them to make your reservation, mention TexasCowboy to get the 10% discount.

If you are staying overnight and have not made reservations to stay somewhere, I suggest that you do that quickly. Summer is a very busy time in the Hill Country.

I’m really looking forward to seeing all my FRiends, eating cpdiii’s yummy food, and sitting on the deck talking about every thing.

Didn’t see a pool table at the cottages anywhere on the recon trip. Guess the boys will have to let me win at bows & arrows or darts this time. Heh.

Thank You for update. Am still working on one minor problem. Will pray for a solution by early next week. Next year a definite, if unable this year. Well, a definite if the creek don’t rise next year.

bows & arrows

Is there place to shoot that around the cottages? I have some low power ones I got when I got trained to be a Girl Scout Archery instructor.

I stink at it, but I like it. Teaching the kids, they were more interested in willingness to teach and an understanding of safety. My level is just teach extreme beginners who often don't even know how to hold the bow.

Yep. Right behind the cottages on the creek. I’m bringing my son’s compound bow (adjusted for me) and a couple of targets. Bring yours. We’ll have us some fun.

I’ve got a left handed compound bow sitting in the studio gathering dust
which I’ll happily give to anyone with a use for it. Got it at an estate sale
and didn’t realize it was a lefty until later. I can’t use it.

I’m left handed when it comes to writing, but right handed in all other things.

Mixed up ol’ mess, you betcha.

I’m right-handed but left-eye dominant. It makes for a weird shooting stance.

My brother is a lefty writer but switches up a lot for most things, shoots right handed mostly.

He was tough at tennis because he had no backhand, just switched hands. He could do this equally for the serve, and throw the ball up high, switch hands while you were watching the ball, then put the ball in a place you swore he could not possible have placed it.

If he was quick, he would switch back while your went after the ball. It took some people 3 or four aced serves before they could figure out what the heck he was doing.

Neither of us were really any good. But the parents bought a house with a tennis court back when we were teenagers. We would set up with a basket full of balls and just practice serving. We never got good at playing but 30 years ago, we could smoke in a serve.

I'd sure take that lefty bow, humble. Right handed, but left eye dominate and I shoot left handed. It's the damndest thing!

WooHoo, The Mom, it looks like I'll get to make it this year!
Probably only for the night before the shoot and the day of the shoot, but I'll be there!

Start here. If nothing is available, I think Hunt, Texas is pretty close. As well as Fredericksburg. I have not look at a map, so check.... but I think there are several towns in that general area within 20 or so miles.

Some woman at a party ask me the other night if we had any vacation plans after the wedding and I said why yes,,we are going to a big shoot in the hill country the very next weekend. She said,” ‘a shoot’, What is that?” (Gads....lol.)
I then explained that it was a memorial shoot at a gun range for someone who loved liberty, good times, good friends, and guns. The color drained out of her face and a moment later she mozied off mumbling something under her breath and steered clear of me the rest of the night...lol. Must have been a liberal...lol!
