      Well, the bottom got re wetted today. This weather is getting to be something. Please pray for the families that lost loved ones from the storms earlier today in east Alabama. Please remember that we will be shooting from the benches again this month. The guns will be divided as always and the match will be similar to the match last month. We will plan to shoot 30 record rounds this month. A five shot target and a ten shot target at both 300 yards and 500 yards. The match will be on March 16, 2019 so please arrive by 8 am and we will be shooting by 9 am. I will have some food and a few drinks and we will also have small prizes for small groups as usual. We will declare the ‘Gunny Pot’ to be the five shot target at 500 yards.[fewer bullets] Hope to see many of you good shooters on the 16th and do as Richard has and invite others to show up. We need a few more shooters to make the three divisions more competitive. Thanks, WWE

      Can’t wait to shoot! Hopefully we will have some folk that have not been lately along with new faces. I think my sweetie is going to make some sweet treats for all the skinny shooters

      Thanks Richard, got me thinking. Anybody got any good deer sausage or something else good we could put on the grill for lunch? WWE

      Friday morning, the day before report. It flooded here yesterday afternoon and has rained a little this morning. I’m thinking the creek probably got over the shooting tables. Will check this morning. The weather channel app says it is about over and out of here. We will plan to go forward with the match as planned. It will be very wet and slippery so plan accordingly. Hope to see many of you tomorrow. Please try to arrive by 8 am. to give us time to get things up and running.

      ps. lunch will be as usual since we had no offers
