And so begins our annual 7th TexasCowboy Memorial Shoot.
Thank you humble gunner for the graphic.
TexasCowboy (aka COB1) was a true Texas gentleman, great friend, patriot, and a firm believer in the 2nd Amendment. It is truly an honor to continue a tradition he started many years ago, hosting shoots for FRiends around the great state of Texas.
Many FReepers are coming into town on Thursday so that they can have a tourist day on Friday. Those lucky people are going to be made (a good) miserable Thursday evening by enjoying TheMoms Kick Ass Enchiladas.
The only set tourist place is The Lady Lex.
Friday evening we will meet at Captain Bennys, 103 Fulton Beach Road Fulton, TX 78382, at 8:00 p.m., for a delicious seafood dinner. (They do not take credit cards or serve liquor ~ so remember to bring your cash & booze.)
Saturday morning we meet for breakfast at Alice Fayes, 910 North Fulton Beach Road, Fulton, TX 78358, at 8:00 a.m. The shoot is scheduled to start at 10:00 a.m. at, Schwenkes Gun & Pistol Range, 4407 FM 1069 Aransas Pass, TX, 78336. Mr. Schwenke has reserved the 25 yard shooting station for our group to use as home base. The only major rule at this range is do not shoot the livestock. A BBQ lunch will be served at 12:30ish.
Once the shooting is done some of us will be going to the Rockport Seafair, while others will go back to the Pelican Bay cottages for some R&R. Saturday evening will be filled with yummy junk food and margaritas!
According to the forecast, it looks as the weather will be perfect. Lows in the mid-sixtys, highs in the mid-eightys.
And so it begins . . .
Safe travel to everyone one.
Dang it - it meant to hit the edit button instead of the post button. Guess I have not had enough caffeine this morning.
TC was a gentleman, and a kind man.
I hope you all have a wonderful time - be safe and enjoy your memories of ElRoy - As I say each year, he would get such a kick out of you all doing this!
I believe it is the best way to honor his memory.
Each year he is right there with us.
I guess that means you or Laz won’t be able to make it.
Would love to attend, but just too far away. Y’all have fun, y’hear?
Y’all have a safe trip, too! We’re about to have breakfast at John’s and will take off at about nine! Woooohoooo!
What a great way to remember someone! Have a wonderful time and do some shooting for me!
I know you all will have a great time. Looking forward to the pictures!
Everyone stay safe and watch those muzzles!
Start planning to attend next year ~ even though we don’t yet know where that will be held.
Enjoy your road trip down. Hope you gals get to make lots of pit stops.
Awesome. Living in New Jersey and moving to Texas must be like dying and waking up in Heaven for us gun-people.
We just finished a great breakfast at my place with the gang. headed out shortly.
We’re on the road heading to The Body of Christ-Town. While we will be very close to y’all, we won’t be able to attend. Sorry.
Damn. Y’all had breakfast together??? I missed that! I JUST missed it, too,
*grin* We’ll work on it!
