TexasCowboy +Two Memorial Shoot XII Planning Thread
My Brain | 04-11-17 | TheMom

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 don’t 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 year’s 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 Eaker’s ashes, which will be attached to containers of tannerite so that we can all blow Eaker’s ashes into the wind. It will be an epic send off!

Eaker will be cheering us on. I’ll bet, if the explosions weren’t so loud, we’d hear a Wa-Hoo!!

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.

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.

My, my....I'm so sorry for your loss.

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.
