The range shuts down while the food is served. Normally people eat, drink, hang out for the raffle and then head home.

Must not have seen JohnB and I behind the pile if empties!
But we get there early and shoot, then hit the food and drink. Owning a gun requires a half of brain, good thing cause that's all I got left :lol:

Went to this event last year, for all those who haven't gone it is a great event and its for St. Judes. Me and my buddies were just gonna shoot but, when we saw the food we stayed and bought more raffle tickets for the great prizes. Theres a package store close by just in case you forget to BYOB. I think the burgers and dogs were out throughout the day but, the best food was the dinner when they shut down the ranges and did the raffles. I really wanted to go to this one again this year but, unfortunately duty calls and I have to go to some military training down south on the 19th. Have fun everyone.
