We will shoot 200 yards only. we'll shoot factory, custom and ar's, I'll just change the balloon sizes for each. Official match will start about 10:00 or a little later. I'll bring the drinks but the food is on you all. Pot luck. Might play an old shootoff game if anybody wants to after the match is done. If people shoot more than one gun we can do the shootoff in relays. Any other suggestions?

trophys

Since I don't have any money to front for the trophys, would someone like to handle that? We can talk about type, number or whatever. I know some people like the nice wooden ones but they are expensive. I don't have a preference but I do care about the overall cost of the day. Comments???

I'll call you to discuss trophies, John, maybe I can help with that. It may be Sunday before I call.

Factory or not

Hey John. Would a Ruger Precision Rifle shoot in the factory class? No, I don't have one. Just asking for a friend I'm trying to get to come along. Thanks.

I'm glad John said yes. We factory Savage shooters have gotten complacent, only having any real pressure from Sakos and those damn Ruger PPCs. The Ruger Precision might be able to run with a Savage LRPV or Benchrest model. ;)

Thanks

Thanks John. Now all I have to do is get him to come along and have Donnie anoint him as an apprentice Rugermite. I'll warn him about the Savage beating he might have to take.

And this, folks, is exactly why we need to keep the BBB rolling along. This friend of Doug's may not be ready, or interested, in going to a UBR match and getting whomped for 2-3 years until he gets up to speed. But he can come to Buck Creek, get whomped, make some new friends, eat Judy Brown's great desserts, and leave with a smile on his face. :D

"Professor" John Beauchamp is wrangling this year's Bluegrass Balloon Bust and I volunteered to take care of the trophies. We talked and he challenged me to come up with some kind of recognition for the winners while keeping the cost down. Here's a sample of what I came up with, and I think they'll fill the bill. If this doesn't excite you, let me remind you that there will also be good fellowship, the chance to fondle some really nice equipment, and maybe Judy Brown will bring a dessert or two.

Yes, Shane. I've talked with John and not only are you welcome on Friday, you'll be needed. There will still be time to sight in and verify rifles, but John is also hoping there will be some of us around to help with targets and such. Do your wife and daughter eat Chinese? Tradition is that the early arrivers putter around at the range until about 5 or 5:30, then a lot of us go to this Chinese buffet in town and eat PD on a stick. The Harbers are usually there, the Roberts clan, sometimes the McMurrays, as well as other folks. If you don't love Chinese, there are American offerings, too.

You'll be there before Miss Cindy and I arrive. I usually roll in to Jackie's about 1 or so on Friday, later if I stop at Sportsman's Warehouse. :D Be careful if you take US 27 from Wilmore to Somerset. It's good road, but lots of farms, so you can pop over a hill and be on top of a tractor before you have time to react. :eek: It's bad in the fall when they're harvesting tobacco. Anyway, be careful.
