Skip to comments.8th Annual TexasCowboy Memorial Shoot ~ Planning Thread
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.
Me too. I never learned how to shoot with both eyes open, I just closed my dominate eye.
I do that sometimes myself, usually with long guns.
Wonder if that place we stayed at is booked? Those were decent and not terribly far from the cottages.
...water pistol duels at 10 paces.
Please bring it! Being left handed myself, I'd like to try it.
I hope you shoot that m@t@7%<&!g left handed mouse of yours with it.
LMAO...drives folks at work crazy too!
It’s hard to say if they are booked up already. Every one I talked to said they all book up fast that time of the year.
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!
Shoot! Late to the show again! LOL
Glad you are able to make it this year. I look forward to seeing you.
Be sure to make your reservations early.
Dang, it went quick!
Anybody know of another place to stay, looks like I can make it again?
Nope, I don’t. I haven’t even looked since last year.
There may be something around though.
Any help here?
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.
Absolutely can not wait to see everybody!! Gonna be fun to relax after all the crazy wedding whirlwind for our son and his bride. Tired of the cocktail parties and heels already...lol!
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!
ROTFL. Good to know you’re schmoozing with a couple of dainty lady snobs...lol. You should have been packing a sidearm. :)
June is coming fast. I’m about to buy airline tickets to “he’s” about to hear my plans after I buy the tickets. I think there’s a word for that, but I can’t remember it now. Blind side?
