4th Annual
TEXAS COWBOY
MEMORIAL SHOOT

October 16-18, 2009 ~ Seagoville, TX

The North Texas FReepers are most happy to host this years annual TEXAS COWBOY Memorial Shoot. Please join us in this gathering to once again celebrate the life and memory of Elroy and his notion of fun and friendship.

Links To Previous Texas Cowboy Memorial Shoots!

Location: 5 miles south of Route 175 and 3.5 miles NE of I-45 (exit 270)
on S. Belt Line Road, near Seagoville, TX
This is privately leased land with exclusive use for the weekend.

We will be camping out there that weekend.
Y'all are invited to join us for as long as you can stay.

There is plenty of room for camping and we can set up as many as 3 isolated ranges and a free for all along the river. There are also gongs along the river edge at 400 yards. There are no range Nazi's, but the owner has asked for $16 a head for the weekend use of it. He promised to provide picnic tables and exclusive use.

The road in is a bit rough and there is a steep but short hill. So anyone without a high clearance vehicle will have to park up top and we will caravan them in. Or for the daring, We will have a winch to pull ya back up. There will be a modest latrine / shower tent set up as well as a fire pit and some cooking equipment, grills, screen tent, and a 7K watt generator if anyone needs power for their camper. It's a good size parcel, so folks can camp away from the shooting area on flat land near trees or in open area. Plenty of room for dogs too!
There are motels within 10 miles in Seagoville.

Area Hotel Information Can Be Found HERE!

A private room will reserved at the "Cotton Gin" in Crandall for diner
after the shoot for those that prefer not to camp cook.
Besides the great food, it also has free Wi-Fi.

Check Out The Crandall Cotton Gin HERE!

Camping will be the plan for the weekend.
The property is a very large wooded area next to a river.
It's less than five miles NE of exit 280 of I45 on E. Belt Line Road.
Many folks prefer to camp out and cook out at the land,
so let's make it a side dish ta pass and bring your own meat to grill (or share)
We will be setting up camp early Friday, so if y'all want to take the day off and join in,
that would be most kind!

The weather should be great and the TX State Fair
will still be open for those that might want to attend.

Visit The State Fair Of Texas HERE!

I'll try my darnedest to get there. I'm still...you know...here.

But I always take leave during football season and that is during football season. (Oh, hell...I hope the Texans are out of town that weekend...)

And I've got a couple of cool weapons I want to shoot.

Thanks for the invitation.

I'm also very sorry we haven't met yet. I'm still working on that. I did finally meet James who sets up the gongs on the four hundred. He's a real gentleman and a lot of fun.

I can supply about seven silhouette targets and a steel swinger. I also have a dueling tree that's a lot of fun.

I'll see about collecting some bowling pins for a little competition.

We can also get some claybirds on the bank for some 70 yard pistol and rifle shooting.

This is a HOT RANGE. I hope everyone remembers their muzzle discipline.

Cool. It’s been a while since we went to a FReeper gathering.

Any Target set ups would be greatly appreciated.
There is plenty of stuff down there now but swingers and silhouettes are a nice addition.

Yeah, we will get a few cases of clays and any 2x4 scraps we can round up for targets.
Cheap tennis balls are a fantastic river target.
I’ll try to get a couple cases of tannerite.

This is a HOT RANGE. I hope everyone remembers their muzzle discipline.

As shooter says the range is not monitored. it is up to the individuals to exercise safety. The range is full auto/tracers/50 BMG... whatever ya got. It is similar to Schwenckes range last year.

there are only a few rules. Use muzzle discipline at all times. Alcohol and guns dont mix. Dont shoot the trees. And dont shoot up river toward the road I will set up some rudimentary firing lines

The range is pretty much RV accessible now but more road improvements will be in place in time for the shoot.

We can go out there any weekend if you want to check it out.

I look forward to meeting you and the crew
