CT Shooting Community Forum Member Shoot / Get-Together

Postby snakeeater332 » Wed Jun 08, 2011 12:01 am

Well, here it is... Since the previous attempt to make this happen unfortunately fell through, let's see who's still interested in doing this? I'd like to see a nice social gathering of forum members getting together, sharing their love of firearms and the shooting sports, and putting faces to our screen names...and, of course, showing off our 'toys'!

I do not belong to a club, but I'd be willing to help organize and run an event, even though I've never done something like this. I'm looking to see who may be still interested, who can contribute, and any possible suggestions that could make this happen, hopefully between now and say October or November. What do you guys think?

And, by the way, I'm not trying to step on any toes here...I just thought that this was an excellent idea from the get-go and would like to see it happen. If anyone wants to take the reins and run with it, feel free to do so. I'll help in any way I can.

I'm definitely interested in a group shoot. Nice way to meet a few people, and touch off a few rounds.

The CCDL normally has a picnic in the fall at Wolcott Landowners Association. That might also work.
