9th Annual TexasCowboy Memorial Shoot Planning Thread
My Brain | 04/0/14 | TheMom

Posted on 04/07/2014 7:47:52 PM PDT by TheMom

A date and cabin locations have finally been chosen.

This year’s shoot will be October 18th. Once again it will be held in Seagoville, (5 miles south of Route 175 or 3.5 miles NE of I-45 (exit 270) on S. Belt Line Road). The plan at this time is to meet at Cotton Gin in Crandle for breakfast at 9:00 a.m., BUT they are currently closed due to a fire. Hopefully they will be reopened by October. If not, Plan B will be put in place. After breakfast we will all head to the range. A delicious lunch will be provided at the range by our wonderful FRiend cpdiii.

The cabins where we are staying are Miller Creek Ranch in Canton, TX. There is a map of the place Here

A block of cabins have been reserved under the name TexasCowboy Memorial Shoot. To reserve your cabin, call 866-488-6020 or 903-567-6020 They are reserved for Thursday the 16th through Sunday the 19th. Please let them know if you will arrive Thursday or Friday night. A $125.00 deposit is due at the time you make your reservation, with the balance due when you check in.

The cut off date for making your reservation is May 28th! Make reservations after that date at the risk of not getting a cabin.

The cabin numbers reserved for us are 10, 22, 24, 25, 77, 88, 89, 90, 92 and 102. #’s 22, 24, and 25 are called Executive Cabins with lofts, they are $185.00/night and sleep 4-6 people; #’s 10, 88, 89, 90 and 102 are Standard Cabins with lofts, they are $165.00/night and sleep up to 4 people; # 92 is a Standard Cabin without a loft and # 77 is handicapped accessible, those are both $150.00/night and sleep up to four. All the lofts, with the exception of #22, are only three feet high and each have two twin mattresses; the loft in #22 is five feet tall. Each cabin has a queen size bed and a queen size sleeper sofa.

No cars are allowed at the cabins, with the exception of the handicapped cabin. You can either use their concierge service to get to and from the cabins or rent a golf cart for $40.00/day. If you want to rent a golf cart it was suggested that you reserve one when making your reservation.

Extra cost included are a $5.00 resort fee (they normally charge this per day, but are only charging us a one time fee); Internet fee is $5.00/day.

Looking forward to seeing everyone in October!

Fixing an error . . . it is Mill Creek Ranch, not Miller. I guess I had Miller Time on the brain.

Also, if all 9 cabins are already reserved when you call you can reserve another of their cabins and still get the discounted price.

Lousy video but a great range.
Dunno why that chucklehead did not use the 400 yard range with that barrett.
There is a 500 yard range.
BBQ grills, picnic tables, play area for kids.

You know, it occurs to me that a tight-knit and resourceful
group of folks with each other’s interests at heart could make do with only one or two golf carts and a bit of cooperation.

I’ll look at the cabin dispersal and distance to the parking area and reactivate my logistics thinking mode and go to cipherin’.

Unless you rent cabin 22, I wouldn’t advise having four people having their own bed. The other lofts have a lot of floor space, but are only three feet high.

Maybe you can talk Laz into sharing a cabin with you.

That's what I've heard. It is one of the main reasons we didn't rent a block of rooms at the only hotel in that town.

Wow, thanks for that Info TheMom.

Of Course. Although I won't want to intrude.

This was posted on another thread by cpdiii last night, and I have directed him to this thread.

“My Life

Bring that Saiga shotgun, I have the shells. I have a new toy. It is a 50 year anniversary edition REMINGTON 300 WIN MAG.

This year I am thinking about Brisket Chicken, Beans and Rice. If others can bring some side dishes it makes it a lot easier for me. About a week before the shoot I will need an approximate head count. At the last shoot I ran out of Brisket and was a little embarrassed about it.

I am looking forward to seeing the gang this fall.”

We say it is in Seagoville because that is the largest nearby town.
The shoot is actually in a place called Wilmer/Hutchins.

The prison in seagoville is a minimum security prison for white collar criminals.

Thanks for that info mylife.

Charlie - I’ll make sure you get a head count a week or two before the shoot.

I will bring the pinto beans. If we ask nicely I’ll bet pen would bring her delicious potato salad.

Looking forward to seeing you and eating your yummy food.

You betcha! Be glad to bring potato salad. Do you think the kitchen in executive cabin is set up where I can just bring the fixins and make it when I get there? Thinking that would be best for something like potato salad.
