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!

It's called Voltaren Gel. (diclofenac sodium topical gel !%)

My son was put on the pill version of diclofenac for his Juvenile Rheumatoid Arthritis because it won't hurt his stomach, liver or kidney...and does an awesome job of handling the pain.

Thank you to everyone that came out for this year’s TC Shoot and made it happen. I had a great time and was very much entertained as everything progressed and then concluded at NYT’s house.

Sounds like you guys had the usual good time and I’m very sorry I was unable to make the shoot this time around but I have not yet perfected the art of being in two places at once!

I’m sure Ole ElRoy was right there with ya!

Perhaps next time I can be there.

That bug is called a Velvet Ant, but is a type of wingless wasp.

They don’t move really quick, but if they get the chance they’ll hammer ya’. One of their nicknames is “Cow Killer” because of the painfulness of their sting.

I’d say a .416 Rigby would be enough gun for one.

In all fairness to those up stream, we were the ones throwing stuff in the river. That poor Indian is standing at the mouth of the river crying his eyes out, wondering why people were killing tennis balls. ;-)

Iron Eyes Cody was actually an italian who played indians. Actors like that were often refered to as “schmoehawks”.
