    Is that Matheus I the background?  I think that is how his name was spelled.

    Don't think this has been mentioned and y'all may thinks its a crazy idea. We stop ever so often to fix targets etc. What if we paused every 20 to 30 minutes to pick up all the brass we can find. Would beat having to do it all at the end of the day or the next morning. Once we finish at the end of the day go over it with a fine tooth comb and pick the rest up.

    I sure would like to come, but at my age, I don't trust my driving for more than about 75 miles.

    OK- - - -I dropped by the motel today and gave them a heads-up about the shoot.  I'm not sure how much of a discount they'll be able to give, but it's usually a pretty good one, considering the number of rooms we rent and the fact that most of the reservations end up being for more than one night. 

    Call direct- - - -don't use the Motel 6 reservation system, and mention the "Southeast Shoot" to get our group rate.  I've told them some folks might start arriving as early as Thursday, May 23rd. and possibly staying through Sunday night, the 26th.  They're good with whatever night(s) you want to reserve.  Nick at the sandwich shop says if we want to have another cookout at the pool area that's OK too.  As always, any business we can throw his way during the weekend would be appreciated- - - -these folks really make an effort to accommodate is.

    Gene, if you're anywhere near I-75, there's usually a veritable convoy headed our way from the Florida/south Georgia area.  I'm sure somebody would probably have room for a hitch- hiker.

    Thanks for touching base with Nick at the Motel 6, Jerry. That sandwich shop served a right good breakfast, and their other stuff is good eats, too.
    I'll most likely arrive on Thursday and do some 'alchemy' out at the range on Friday, and help get the stuff set up at the range. Going to bring my metal detector and do some searching for brass, too. That way the party favors will all be mixed beforehand and I won't have that mess all over me. Having aluminum powder on hands and pants and shirt and shooting is a little unsafe. Streakin' across the field with shirt and pants on fire might be entertaining as long as it's not YOUR shirt and pants on fire! Got to get down to the pond and get some cane poles to hang Tannerite targets from, too. That will make it easier to pick up the residual stuff as it will be in a line and not scattered willy nilly.
    And if you don't get that zero turn lawnmower ready in time, I can bring my riding mower to clear off the shooting line to make brass cleanup easier.

    We will not be attending this year.  We will be visiting Europe.  You all have a BLAST and post lots of pictures.

    Sorry to hear about the legal troubles over the estate. I was hoping you'd be able to attend this year. I'm missing my brother from New Zealand.

    Hmmmmm- - - - -maybe you need to organize a "Kiwi Shoot" to intimidate your adversaries.  I'll bet a bunch of old redneck geezers could give the Maori a run for their money when it comes to making threatening faces and gestures!

    LOL!
