Time to start planning out Forum Woodswalk at the Spring shoot at Friendship.

June 9th at noon - meet at the Woodswalk shed starting around 11:30

This year marks the 20th anniversary of the woodswalk and a number of us have been involved in a project to update the range. You will see new targets and infrastructure improvements!

I am really hoping we can get a great turnout this year. Post below if you can make it or any other questions.

That is something I may have to consider in the fall.

Thanks

We'd be glad to meet and woodswalk with you guys. Expect the course to be 16 shots, over a distance of about 300 yards out, then 300 yards back. You can use a range rod, or the rod under your barrel. Bring a canteen or bottle of water, but not a meal. It may be less, but figure 1 1/2 hours, because we aren't pushing ourselves hard. As former NMLRA president Max Vickery used to say, we don't let the shooting get in the way of the fun.
There are traveling trophies for the winners of rifled and smoothbored events of this Forum members event.

Thanks all,

So what is my dress code? ball cap? Cincy reds "C" ? I know we don't want to tear up the targets, caliber or powder charge limits?

Thanks again, really looking forward to this.

No dress code. I will be wearing my 21st century sportsman impression. This year we added targets for small bore (40 cal and less) and pistol shooters. I know we also have plenty of folks shooting full house Brown Bess loads.

Looking forward to seeing everyone. See you at noon on Sunday!

If the weather is bad and the woods walk range is closed, perhaps we can meet in the cafeteria for lunch.

We got rained out again. We may try to do a run on Tuesday at noon, weather permitting

Barry
We were there, brother and i, sunday, to do the shoot but heard on the line it had been cancelled for the day due to mud and slippryness for safety reasons. Very disappointed of course but shot the running boar as a substitute. Lots of fun and 7 of the 10 shots no idea where they went. See you next time and good luck. Sorry missed it but given weather, good decision i think for what little that is worth.
