You're good for it Rob!

By the way, we (along with Cliff and Don's clubs) are going to host a charity shoot on Halloween weekend with the proceeds going to the Vanderbilt Childrens Cancer Center. I know you have some connections and any help or publicity would be greatly appreciated. If any of the "show folk" are going to be in town perhaps a cameo appearance? (maybe Aaron or one of the sisters).

We got a late start and P.R. has been lacking up to now due to pre-occupation with the Nationals and the State.

Also, as a point of interest, I tried to represent the "point shooters" at the Nats with my new STI. Managed 12th place in a very competitive class. High point for me was a lateral mover that had to be fired on while "running for cover" in the opposite direction. Two other stationary bad guys with a "no-shoot" in the middle. Targets 3 to 8 yards with about five yards to go laterally to get behind cover. It was a Rob style, grip-it-and-rip-it, quintuple tap on the move with a double tap and triple tap after reaching cover. 7.23 seconds - 0 points down - splash 3 bad guys (all five hits were on the mover w/3 A's!) AIN'T SEEN A SIGHT YET!

solo,

The match will be held in Manchester, about half way between Nashville and Chattanooga. I can e-mail a map but you would need to enter quick - we shoot on Saturday October 16!

E-mail me with your e-mail address and I'll e-mail you the info and you can e-mail me when you decide and I can e-mail the match director...what the heck did we do before e-mail????

Solo, we have two matches coming up. The first is the Tennessee State IDPA Match, October 16, and then Charity Shoot on Halloween weekend. The State is filling up fast. We run good matches. Hope to see you there.

Hey, can either of you guys please post directions to the range in this thread?

I am leaving in a few hours, and I'll check this site tonight, but I won't be checking Email.

Thanks.

Take I-24 to exit 111 Manchester/Tullahoma...exit goes under the overpass and loops back so turn left (toward Manchester) on hwy 55

Go to and thru traffic light at Hwy 41-A, then about two or three blocks to Coffee St...turn right on Coffee

Go thru traffic light at Spring St and proceed to stop sign at Oakdale...turn left on Oakdale

Go approx 1 block to stop sign at Taylor St...turn right on Taylor

Follow Taylor around the curve (it turns into Cat Creek Rd) and go about a mile or so to Archery Lane (there should be a sign up)...turn left on Archery Lane - you can't miss it from there.

Looking forward to seeing you again...

Mikey
