Hey Buzzard, That's great. It'll be good to see a couple of new faces what with you and Indy around. Ya kinda get tired of lookin at the likes of Al and Bob. You'll see what I mean.

I just want you all to know how much this is KILLIN ME!!!!!!!!!!!! Just found out that I will actually be on long off for that weekend too! Do you think I could slip out of the reunion, drive from Rantoul to Angola and back and no one would miss me? I mean, I am kinda easy to overlook.............. ;)

I believe that I would love to attend, but I don't have the PC clothing to wear at such an event. There is nothing like this in my area of West Virginia and I would love to come and just watch all of the activities that go on.
Maybe by this time next year I will have some of the clothing required so that I can attend.
Take only what you need and leave the rest

We don't get too caught up in the clothes end of it just the guns . This is a very informal event other than your weapons have to be traditional muzzleloaders. If you can make it out come on we have plenty of room and would love to have ya!!

Welp, I'm not going to be able to make it.  My cousin got some leave time from the Army and is taking a trip to South Carolina and said I could go with him for free, so I can't turn that deal down!  Enjoy the shoot, though.  I'll try my darndest for next year.

Earl, bring the mac salad. Indy also sorry you won't be there. Keep a close eye pealed for Al. If he doesn't drive any bettern he shoots, there could be issues. Hopefully Buzzard will pop in. And Vern, ya dun got a personal invite from the Grand Poobah. Ya oughta come on out. Ya won't regret it. Course Al will be there....

Well folks...the best thing I can say about this past weekend is A Good Time Was Had By All!!
For the most part, we had fine weather.  We had rain on Saturday afternoon and had a DELUGE Saturday night/Sunday morning, but nobody floated away that I know of.
We had all the shooting that we could keep up with and more food than we needed to eat.  Miss Mary and Eric made sure that we left weighing more than we did when we got there.  
Ed didn't get much of a break...what with setting up all the shooting, keeping score and trying to take enough pictures to fill an album!
The tall tales and war stories never ended and no one made it out of there without being the butt of one joke or another.  
I'd like to thank Nobber (Eric) for once again for putting on a great event for those of us who showed up.  If ya didn't make it...ya missed out!
A great big Thankee to Jingles (Ed) for all of the hard work he put into making this a fun weekend...even if he wouldn't take my last years Carrot Award and pass it on...
Of course, a big thank you to Miss Mary for feeding us on Friday and Saturday...and for making sure that there were enough noodles and beef on Saturday...else no one but Ed would have been able to eat.
Congratulations go to Buzzard (Jeff) for winning the aggregate...he put on a good showing.
If most of my parts are still working...I'll sure be there again next year!
Sorry I don't have any pictures to post...bu Ed should have a few... thousand to stick up here.
Thanks again to the folks who made this happen  :clap
