We are two weeks away from April 14, 15 2007 at Wicen's Range in Furlong Pa, south of Doylestown.
Interest among the local gun shops appears high, but I will find room onthe line for my brothers of The Rally Point.
You can't buy training cheaper than $100 for two full days, 16 hours chock full of American History, Principles of the Republic, the basic six steps of hitting your target with your chosen long arm, and conversation with like minded citizens.
You may register on-line, via www.rwva.org
(and get a tee shirt shipped in) or on site, if you fear the trail.
Take the challenge on your home range TODAY, and see if you can benefit from a little coaching.
Set a 1" square at 25 meters (82 feet) heck, 25 yards is close enough. Place ten shots, in any position, except off the bench, inside that one inch square. If you can do it, come on out and help me teach other less fortunates!
Slings HIGHLY recommended, as is a pad to lie on, and field glasses to spot with, stpaler to hang targets.
Don't forget sun screen, a cleaning kit, and lots of water!
Hope to see ya there!

From the SOUTH along I 95:
Go to the Newtown Exit, turn left, follow the "Newtown Bypass" and turn left on Rte, 332. Follow this through Richboro as it becomes "Almshouse Road". COntinue to Rte. 263 (York Road) and turn Right. Continue North to "Sugarbottom Road" turn right and follow it to the end, where it swings left and becomes "Mozart Road". Wicen's is on the right.
From the NORTH and EAST (NJ) Get to Rte. 202 around New Hope. Follow this West and swing onto 263 South (they merge for a bit and split off again). Follow this to "Swamp Road" and make a left (if you miss this, you can continue on to Sugarbottom road as marked above). Turn RIGHT on Mozart and Wicen's will be on the left.
From the WEST, take 263 and join in as above, OR (far enough WEST)
you may come East on the PA Turnpike, follow US 1 North to I95 and proceed North I95 to join up on those directions.
NOTE: The range is on a hill top. There is good drainage, for the most part. There is NO RANGE COVER, so a tarp or two would be welcome to assist us in arranging temporary cover.
THERE ARE MINIMAL CLOSE RESTARAUNTS on 263. Bring your snacks and water.
