TexasCowboy +Two Memorial Shoot XII Planning Thread
My Brain | 04-11-17 | TheMom

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 don’t 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 year’s 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 Eaker’s ashes, which will be attached to containers of tannerite so that we can all blow Eaker’s ashes into the wind. It will be an epic send off!

That should not be an issue, we will welcome those folks to join us.

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.

Looking forward to seeing y'all! And to see that sweet doggie again! Do you still have the mixer for the margaritas or do I need to bring it from lauren's house, where I'll probably be staying? I might need a ride or at least to follow you down so I don't get lost in that maze at the lake. LOL! 😂
