Posted on 04/11/2017 4:07:43 PM PDT by TheMom
For the first time in 12 years I am breaking two traditions for the TCMS. Each year the shoot is held at different locations; although some ranges were visited two or more times, it has never happened in consecutive years. But because my life has been a bit wonky lately I just dont have the energy for the research and recon.
The other broken tradition is the name change. This year we will also honor my co-cat herder, NYTexan, and my beloved husband, Eaker; both of these fine men passed away within days of each other this past March.
Therefore, the shoot will mirror last years shoot. I spoke with the folks at Cherokee Village Resort this afternoon and temporarily reserved the entire place for October 19 ~ 22, 2017. Tomorrow I will call and confirm those dates, then post the final date to make your reservations. When calling to make a reservation, mention that you are with the TexasCowboy group. You will have to make a deposit equal to a one night stay.
The shoot will be held at Hicksville Gun Range, in Gatesville, starting at 10:00 a.m. on the 21st. Where once again we can enjoy the range dogs, the owners and lunch provided by our own cook, cpdiii.
humblegunner has volunteered to make some containers in which to place Eakers ashes, which will be attached to containers of tannerite so that we can all blow Eakers ashes into the wind. It will be an epic send off!
Depends on the folks.
I'm told we have some attendees that can be offensive on demand.
Have you called Hicksville to remind them about us?
I’d hate to catch ‘em by surprise.
The good lord willing and the creek don/t rise I will be down there on Friday afternoon!!! Will have to leave early Sunday morning:-( Still having to do that work thing for a few more months.
Will be coming down solo. Mrs alfa6 has prior commitments among other things:-(
