7th Annual TexasCowboy Memorial Shoot - Planning Thread
4-22-2012 | TheMom

Posted on 04/22/2012 7:37:27 AM PDT by TheMom

Planning has begun for the 7th Annual TexasCowboy Memorial Shoot.

This year’s shoot will be held at Schwenke’s Rifle & Pistol Range, 4407 FM 1069, Aransas Pass, TX. Which is a few miles north of Corpus Christi.

The date of the shoot is October 6th, which is Columbus Day weekend.

I have not talked to the range owner yet to see if we can cook on the range. If not, we will head over here for food & more fun. What food & who cooks has yet to be determined. I’m thinking, since we will be on the coast, we should have seafood.

Several of us will be staying in the cottages at that resort. The cottages sleep 2 ~ 4 people; they are a one bedroom with a fold out queen couch. I am going to reserve four cottages so that we will have a common area where we can eat & socialize. Let me know if you want to stay in one of them.

It should be noted that a festival will be held the same weekend as the shoot.

That’s it for now . . .

I wish I had time to fish.

Somebody mentioned that the range was tannerite friendly, no?

Anyways I have an idea for a moving zombie target, will have to see if I can test it out later this summer, he he

BTW LUV W, it looks like the lovely and gracious Mrs alfa6 will be there this year.

Be nice to be able to go a few days early and do other stuff, too. There’s a lot to see in that area. I’d love to see the USS Lexington
docked there.

Schwencke said it was fine last time although I didnt have any tannerite, I did have some small exploding targets that we used.

Mr Schwencke basically anything goes, Class III or tannerite,
Just no Booze and get the livestock off the range first.

Is that accurate Mom?

I saw the Lex plenty in Pensacola.
They used it to train Carrier pilots to land.
It was tied up in port and the pumps were always running to keep her from sinking LOL

The Seafair sounds fun.

As Mr Cundiff my freshman high school English teacher would have said: "That's two thirds of a pun...P U"

If I had had a better way to launch them I think they would have worked. And duct tape, should have had some duct tape:-) Regards

I was just saying to Eaker last night, that I think we should use that pier to catch part of our dinner for after the shoot.

A good tour of the Lex takes about three or hours; hanging out at the Seafair would take up about two hours.

Mr. Schwencke’s main concern is that his livestock don’t get shot.

Something to consider...

We could move up our schedule a day so as to have Friday to catch all the sights.

That sounds like an awesome plan! Enjoy yourselves. San Antonio isn’t but a few hours northeast of there. You might take a side trip up there or to other wonderful Texas destinations! :)

I’m really looking forward to this...as usual! :)

Hubby has made reservations for our stay. We will be attending.

Hubby thinks we're going so I can meet y'all, but my nefarious plan involves his meeting you. Maybe somebody can convince him to join Free Republic.

We still need a cat sitter, but we have a couple of people in mind.

“Mooooooooooovvvveeeee!!!”

I think “BANG” would work too...

But that kinda messes up the whole seafood theme for the weekend...Who knows, “Surf and Turf” has always been a winner to me...

mylife says we are good to go for Thursday as the travel day.

So plan your flight to CC!

We may need a tour guide after all...

We’ll likely be in Port A that weekend but, I doubt the Wife, kids and friends would allow me to duck out for some ‘other’ goodtimes.

We shall see.

I’m driving down by myself from Southlake/Westlake/Keller/Colleyville/Grapevine. If anyone wants a ride, FReepmail me to get in touch. (No charge - I’m a-goin’ anyway.)

I absolutely cannot wait to lay eyeballs on y’all finally. I’m a-countin’ the days!

Actually that was Mustang Island

Which is exactly where I'm at right now. Have been since Saturday night (12 May) but will be leaving in the morning. Ate at Virginia's place in Aransas pass tonight. Good Shrimp.

I toured her a few years ago.. Not sure I could mange all the "ladders" now, but I'm getting there. I'm just about across Corpus Christi Bay from her right now.

That was/is a good old horse. Very even tempered.

Of course having the horse (and goat) whisperer on duty helped a lot too.
