<<Son, I love sushi. You should have seen Bob West (fellow Utah TFLer) when I tried to get him to eat some though.>>

Yeah Larry, you tried to gag me with that "bait"
stuff.

SodaPop, Are there any Japenese place's out by W&W that have sushi??? I never found one yet! I will ask my friend to look around if they can find one if you dont know.

Can you make Sushi out of Trout???? They have a Pond next to the range. There use to be a Red Lobster not too far from the Range but I don't think it there. We have to come up some kind of group games for each State.

Spectre, you were reading my mind. TFLers could hold regional or state meets on the same weekend nationally and the following Monday would be an image posting frenzy ... I think Fort Valley would be a good place for a GA meet. I need a chance to try out my new digital camera anyway. What d'yall say?

Sept/Oct was when we were going to try it again anyway. Let's doooo it. BTW, FL, AL, TN, SC, etc., TLFers could converge here. Mason-Dixon Line is the cut-off. North of that, you have to go to the PA shoot ...

SodaPop how about a 500yard Clay Pigeon Shoot? I have about 1 case sitting in the garage. I think I will break out the Ruger 10/22 for that, wonder how many it would take to get a "hit"

yorec - you going to actually show up to one? Man, I had 4 DOZEN brats left over after the last one! We need more help getting them all eaten!

I think I am going to try getting some of our local Utah gun factory guys to come out for the fun too.

TX gathering

I'd be interested in the regional thing. I'd be willing to assist with one in Texas, if others will, too.

Yes, George, eventually I WILL be there. It seems that everytime I plan to show, I end up working. Never failed yet!

Well, I fixed them this time! I blew out my Achilles tendon and they tell me I can't work until it's healed! Sometime in October, though I'll be able to do light non-athletic stuff well before. Hopefully a TFL gathering will fit the bill if not too soon, still not getting about too well. Regardless, though, I doubt I can join in the Tent Chasing event for quite some time!

yorec. The chasing part is easy. It is the catching part that is difficult.

I'm sorry about your tendon. That sucks. We don't do anything too athletic though. But if PvtPyle asks if you want to go on a little hike to test some gear, just run away!

As of right now I've got the weekend of the SLC shoot off. If we can excape for that weekend we will be tent camping and bringing our 2 daughters with us (3 & 8) We would arrive sometime Friday afternoon and stay till sometime early afternoon Sunday.

Anybody else bringing their family along??

Is their a campgrond semi close to the range with running water/showers and most important flush potties??

How about kids shoots?? We will bring a .22 rifle and pistol for the munchkins.

Joey,
The Utah Lake State Park is almost directly across the lake, but that's about an hour's drive from the shoot site. I know that it has all the things you want, though. I think that's the closest developed camping you'll find. Reasonable, too - $12-14 a night, I believe. Do a search on Utah State Parks and you'll find the reservations and info site. Good luck!

George,

Since I'm in SLC most of the time these days, count me and my HK in. Where exactly will this be, and what kind of pistol action do you have planned ?

& none of our 30 or so Colorado members haven't chimed in yet?

Wot's up wi dat?

Sick of knowing 'bout 3 TFLers by facial recognition & ready to be a Utahn (how is it you guys say that anyway? Gotta have a southern drawl to it ...

Hell, it's only a 14 hour drive - sounds like a time (or two) ...

"Primitive" camping on-site, you said?

Better'n SERE & it's edible (strike that & insert = tasty), I'd say ...

Archer1440, Its real easy to get to.
Take I-15 South to the main Lehi exit and head west through the town. Out the other side you will come to an intersection... Redwood Road. Take a Left. About 10 miles south on Redwood... There will be a sign that says "TFL". We are up the hill from that sign... You'll see some cars parked and stuff but the tents and everything in not visible from down there where the cars park. The 4X4s can go ahead and climb on up the hill with little problem.

I just got rid of the Supra yesterday... and have a Jeep Cherokee 4X4 now just for these events.

George, muchas gracias, I live in SLC and I'll be there if I can avoid a tournament in Sacramento I am supposed to shoot with my quieter weapon of choice...

Labgrade, people in Utah are known as "Utawanians" or"Utahweshians" to us Californians, but since my employer transferred me here going on 2 years ago I suppose I better get over it. Besides it is nice to have a ccw from Utah, good reciprocity. I felt a little more secure spending 10 days in Motown last month with Mr. HK under my left armpit...
