Yahyes! My little brown-eyed sweetie said she'd come with me! Yeah!

I plan to be there Fri mid-afternoon Gunslinger. Now I gotta get 'hold of the Interstate Inn and try for a ground floor room.

Hooorah.

Sensop, in case you missed it in the other thread ;) and for anyone else planning to stay at the hotel the number is: (417)833-1550. Be sure to mention TFL.
I should also mention that anyone wanting to is free to camp here at my place......well at least the first 500 or so any way. :) :) :)

I posted it in the old thread but worth restating, if anybody from Pennsylvania wants to go and needs a ride, send me an email. I'll be glad to haul your butt to Mizzou. :)

Ammo, ammo, ammo: :)
I spoke with a local reloader about discount ammo for anyone interested while here. Thinking there may be those that either do not reload, do not want to haul a lot of ammo with them for the trip or are flying it may be convenient if they could get cheap ammo here. I'll list the price I was given for the basic calibers and anyone needing other calibers let me know and I will ask him for pricing on it as well. All prices are per 50 with cast bullets except the .223, which is FMJ.

9mm.........$6.00
.40 S&W.....$7.00
.45 ACP.....$9.00
.223........$8.00

He said he will make up as much as we need of each plus extra and hold them for the meet.

Can we use paper silhouette targets? If not, what types of targets may we use and size restraints.

Size restraints? My God SVT, how big a target do you need? :D :D :D
Seriously, they provide the targets but we are allowed to bring our own as well. There are signs posted advicing that silhouette targets are not allowed. However it was "suggested" by the range director that we TFL'ers will be given some latitude regarding range rules since we are a group and I assured him we are responsilbe mature adults. ;)

Did ya get lonesome up here again George? :D

PLanning on being there Early friday morning, Could you please list Tele numbers of any golf courses around there worth playing?? Anyone else interested in playing 18 before the REAL fun begins?? If so drop me a line i'm going to set a tee time for around 1:00pm 08-11-2000. Thanks :)

Golf? I'm a country boy so I can't tell you which ones are good but here are the numbers for a couple of the public courses:

Deer Lake: (417)865-3338

Greene Hill's Country Club: (417)742-3086

Let me know which you choice and I will post directions here.

Note: For everyone getting here on Friday the range will be open to the public from noon until 4:30 that day. We don't have it reserved but anyone wanting to check it out in advacne may. Also for anyone that would like to volunteer to help SVT carry his big ol' targets out to the range it would be appreciated. :D

My 25 yard targets are 8 1/2 X 11. I was just curious because my club here allows a maximum size of 24X24 for the 200 yard target. I realized after my post that your range maxes out @ 100 yards. So SIZE DOESN'T MATTER LOL

I plan on leaving Thursday after work (5pm or so). That means I should arrive there at between 7-8 PM on Friday.

Ok, I got the hubby talked into it - now ain't that a switch? However, I didn't need to do much convincing. His biggest gripe is we have to drive through Ill. to get there. So there will be three more for dinner. :D

Correction, there will be 4 more for dinner. Once my brother heard where we were going he asked when *WE* were leaving. He can't wait to load up his collection and tag along. I thought I was going to have to stop him from loading the car tonight! He's like, "It's never too early to prepare." :D

Perfect, Bluey, y'all can pick me up and drive me down too......

This is going to be one damn hoot!

Anybody bringing a mini-14. Got to get ready for my sail. ;)

I was looking at prices for a TFL flag... Gotta buy six, $750 for the lot... 3x5... silkscreened...

Rich, et.al., what do you think? Should we pass the plate so we could have flags sent around to the various national and international get-togethers??

Sounds like a club to me!

Sure Don. Between equipment and suitcases it looks like we may have to take 2 vehicles anyway. (My brother could arm his own little militia ;) )If that happens they'll be plenty of room.

Perhaps we should arrange for the state police to meet us all at the Missouri line and escort us in! LOL

Looks like I'm going to have to move over to the "maybe" list. Decided to start house shopping, and not sure if I'll have enough vacation time, or funds to take one. I hope to be there, but don't want to commit to something I'm not sure of.

Good point. We should probably all bring something--at least a couple of 2-liters of soda, perhaps a bit 'o stronger cheer if you've a mind, chips, pretzels, whatever. I know y'all are fond of your beer but when it's 95 degrees out I prefer iced tea. :D

Every little bit helps, right?

I've gotten confirmed reservations, hopefully for two. My one question, is there a firearm that I own that I have posted about that anyone would like to try out? I can only bring a few but I would be more than happy to try and satisfy anyone's curiosity.
No, I can't fly in a P-3C with nuke torpedoes.

As for your alls concern, when we get a better number of whos coming we are as Gunslinger posted earlier about a small charge to everyone, which will cover everything for eating, entertainment, and the range, its not going to be a large fee but we will be posting it at a later date, it will also cover your Shiner Bock Beer, woohoo, Shiner Bock, LOL We do appreciate the thoughts of everyone to help, but we figured with everyone traveling it was just as easy for us to do it with a charge and it won't be over $20. This gets more exciting everyday. We are also looking at a few little exciting extras so everything will be covered once you get here for two days, except motels. :) :) :)
