Skip to comments.TexasCowboy +Two Memorial Shoot XII Planning Thread
Posted on 04/11/2017 4:07:43 PM PDT by TheMom
For the first time in 12 years I am breaking two traditions for the TCMS. Each year the shoot is held at different locations; although some ranges were visited two or more times, it has never happened in consecutive years. But because my life has been a bit wonky lately I just dont have the energy for the research and recon.
The other broken tradition is the name change. This year we will also honor my co-cat herder, NYTexan, and my beloved husband, Eaker; both of these fine men passed away within days of each other this past March.
Therefore, the shoot will mirror last years shoot. I spoke with the folks at Cherokee Village Resort this afternoon and temporarily reserved the entire place for October 19 ~ 22, 2017. Tomorrow I will call and confirm those dates, then post the final date to make your reservations. When calling to make a reservation, mention that you are with the TexasCowboy group. You will have to make a deposit equal to a one night stay.
The shoot will be held at Hicksville Gun Range, in Gatesville, starting at 10:00 a.m. on the 21st. Where once again we can enjoy the range dogs, the owners and lunch provided by our own cook, cpdiii.
humblegunner has volunteered to make some containers in which to place Eakers ashes, which will be attached to containers of tannerite so that we can all blow Eakers ashes into the wind. It will be an epic send off!
What a way to go! Ashes blown all over the rifle range. Wish I could come.
Thanks, TM! Let me know what I can do to help.
Eaker will be cheering us on. I’ll bet, if the explosions weren’t so loud, we’d hear a Wa-Hoo!!
Still to early to hash out any details . . . but am so open to suggestions.
Thanks for the heads up, I will consult the vacation calendar when I get to work later this week and see if I can get the 18th and 19th off.
I is on nites them two nites so getting them off would be great, yee haa
Thanks The Mom
Mom, thanks! We hope to make it. The drive is a rough one for us if we do it in one day, almost 10 hours. We’ll see. Last year we took an extra day to travel, both ways. Don’t yet know if we could pull that off this year.
Clan Windflier will be there!
If I think of something, I’ll let you know. :)
Fingers and toes crossed that you can make it this year! And, your sweet wife, too! :)
Added to the ping list.
So looking forward to seeing you guys! Eaker thought y’all hung the moon.
I’m asking for permission to go right now.
I am not part of the group down there but am happy and sad to see this thread. I imagine Eaker and NYT would be very happy with the arrangements. God Bless you all.
We all have lost some good men....in the last years.
If I can make a shoot...this is the one.
It’ll be good to see you again. But I don’t think I play Scrabble with you this time. LOL
You can always be apart of the TCMS group . . . just come on to one of the shoots and you’re in.
