Ladies and gentlemen, please stand for our National Anthem
Texas Cowboy Memorial Shoot
Check in here for the latest news, weather, info, menus and pictures!
He and I had a few short conversations on Logan's thread but I read a lot of his other posts. When he died, I cried like a baby and my husband caught me. I rarely cry and he was very concerned. He couldn't believe that I was crying for a man I'd never met. But his goodness shined through the monitor and besides, he was so good looking.
You will be able to smell the food in Alaska. I'll eat some non salted porky loin in your honor!!
Same here, eyes are welling up now. (((((tiki)))))))
Thank you sir!
If only Red could join us. Though he probably does not like guns nor meat!
Them are my kids.
Good luck with the TC Memorial shoot. Texas Cowboy was a great role model as a Texan, shooter and true gentleman.
We've got a few visiting shooters here in Kerrville as well.
World-class shotgunning finds its way to Kerrville this week as athletes gather for a World Cup match.
Events begin with the United States Olympic Committee officially designating the Hill Country Shooting Sports Center this week as an Olympic training site. The Kerrville ranges new status came only days ahead of the World Cup Skeet, Trap and Double Trap competitions. The events opening ceremony is set for 4 p.m. Friday.
Approximately 325 athletes from 50 countries around the globe will compete through May 11.
U.S. skeet shooter Army Sgt. 1st Class Shawn Dulohery, a 2004 Olympian, was among the athletes in Kerrville on Tuesday participating in unofficial practice. Athletes from Great Britain, Cyprus, Italy and India milled around, talking with one another and taking shooting practice together.
So why does Houston think it always has to rain when we shoot in Houston. It did this the first time too.
Gunner, do you think it's going to take me an hour or so from my place to the range?
TC was one of the greatest men I have ever met. He was loved by many and he is missed by many.
I'm a bit peeved at him today, because he did not stop the rain. ;-)
Someone upstairs is telling us not to have shoots in Houston.
He was a handsome cuss wasn't he? Long tall drink of water and the gentlest of souls.
He's my hero.
Bah... what the heck to they know.
Ok, I better start waking up and getting ready.
I need another soda, this first one just ain't doing the trick.
See you in a bit!
Blue skies in Tijeras... no wind yet, but by afternoon better put some rocks in the kids pockets.
Maybe 40 minutes, Beltway to I-10, I-10 to Hwy 6, 6 to Westheimer.
Here's hoping that the day will go well for everyone. The weather where I am (near Austin) is still rumbling, but shows signs of maybe clearing off.
So sorry that I wasn't able to join y'all today, but I'll be with you in my thoughts.
Having had the great privilege to meet and spend some time with The Cowboy, I know why he was so revered.
Rest in peace, El Roy---
Thanks, I will map it out and should be ok. If I get lost, like I am prone to do, I have y'all on speeddial!
I sure am sorry to miss it. Hope you all have a great time. I enjoyed meeting the group in Austin last night.
Thanks for the ping.
