And so begins our annual 7th TexasCowboy Memorial Shoot.

Photobucket

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 TheMom’s Kick Ass Enchilada’s.

The only set tourist place is The Lady Lex.

Friday evening we will meet at Captain Benny’s, 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 Faye’s, 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, Schwenke’s 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-sixty’s, highs in the mid-eighty’s.

I hope Allegra can make it next time. I was really disappointed that I didn’t get to meet her. (I understood why she couldn’t make it though.)

That’s because I reserved #4 and not #3. What can I say ~ I’m not very good with numbers.

You’ll never get nully to go anywhere he has to endure gunner and me in the same place at the same time. He’d prolly rather have his toenails pulled out one by one. Of course, he might also prefer a little target practice with me down range. Heh.

“Ok. You convinced me. I’ll have the brisket! Will any kind of oak wood do ya? I have tons and tons on my property.”

I use live oak. I use the wood that I trim from my trees and the small lower branches that have a tendency to die due to the lack of sunlight. I have 8 acres and lots of oak.

I respectfully suggest that everyone very carefully read the terms and conditions of renting Cypress Creek Cottages.

There are some pricy errors that can be made if renters are unaware of the consequences.

For example: this place charges plenty for just about everything, including a hefty fee if the cottage isn’t clean when you leave.

The open display of guns and firing guns (well, okay) are not permitted, and the “perp” will be evicted without a refund.

Your money will not be refunded for any reason whatsoever, including early checkout, and if a “refund” is in order, it will be in the form of a credit (which expires in 90 days) for your next stay.

Avoid extra fees being charged to your already overburdened credit cards by toeing the T’s & C’s line there.

Just heard from the thackney family on Facebook, they have a cottage reserved.

By my count there are now seven cabin reserved.

I don’t know if you’ve discussed this further with the others (I just got home), but y’all might think about joining us in Ft. Worth like last time and caravan down to Wimberly with us. :)

Your hubby sounds like mine. Rolls his eyes, but lets me get away with most anything. I think mine loves it that I have found fellow travelers so he can stay home and watch tv 24/7. LOL!

I’m workin’ on him to come with me this next time, though. He’s missing out on so much!

I've read about how that humblegunner freak isn't really such a monster in person.

The narrative doesn't change, but the intonation makes all the difference.

Hi Johnny,

Here is the link to the planning thread for the 8th Annual Shoot.

http://www.freerepublic.com/focus/f-news/2944780/posts

It isn’t until June, so there is plenty of time to plan everything you will need to get there.

All sorts of useful information along with banter and news of the attendees will be available on that thread.

I’m eager to meet you and hope you’ll be there. [smiles]
