    To late for me. I already put in all my vacation time in for the year. If I would have known I would be there.

    I am just north of Dallas and a Baylor Alum so count me in.

    What are we thinking logistically - 1 night, 2 nights, 3 nights?
    Are we planning to hit the skeet/trap range out by Waco airport or another range day someplace?
    Wives invited?

    FYI if the timing is good, and we may want to lock down dates sooner than later - we could trek out and participate in Baylor's Deadeloso tradition.

    We probably don't want to invade the student "day off" festivities on campus during daytime but this year (Spring 2017) the event coordinators are adding NocheDelOso (Night of the Bear) featuring a concert with Michael Ray featuring MamaDear followed by Star Wars. That latter part I presume means outdoor screen showing of the movie.

    This event will be held at the Waco North RV Park, just out of West Texas. Cabins for rent, and you can stay as many days as you like. Tent camping is available also. All family members are welcome to come. Charles, blueseas, the owner, is a member here on TFF. We're looking at the last weekend in April. I'll get with Charles and post up the plans for eating, and possible shooting places. The first year we went to a range where woolyworm was a member, and we all shot as guests of his.

    Tempting. 13.5 hour drive. Tough weekend for us to get away though.

    Maybe we should have one up here? Anyone interested?

    We know that some can't make it. It's to far for some, or maybe to expensive. Somebody has to work to keep all the freeloaders in America fed. This started out as a Texas meet, but we've drawn folks from all over the country.

    Myles, I only saw this thread yesterday. It is too early for me to commit. Wish I could.

    Dang, I'd sure like to participate.....I'd arm wrestle with any of you over 60 and show
    that old Seabee favorite called 'Twistie'.....use your 'signal-finger' to interlock your
    fellow twister's 'signal-finger' and the twister looser goes to his knees....all those years of
    splitting white oak fence posts and milking those old Holstein cows pretty well got me to
    show good in competition...just boasting, but it was entertainment back then!!!! chief

    I hope in the future that I will be able to attend. It will be bittersweet, but for now taking care of my parents, and my inlaws is priority number one. I hope there will still be interest by than.
