Title: April 2015: Central Ohio WTA Meet-Up / Shoot
Post by: Kaso on August 11, 2014, 10:31:03 pm
Yes, you read that right - April 2015 - eight months out.  That's so there are no excuses about vacation time or prior notice.  :neener

Coronach and I would like to put on some type of WTA meet-up next spring, but we need your help!   The event will ideally be held in the vicinity of Columbus, Ohio, and would most likely be on a weekend.  We want to be able to rent out a small range, (so it is cheap, and we have it all to ourselves) and invite any and all WTAers who can make it to come.

This is where you come in: If you live in Ohio, or any part of an adjoining state that is within driving distance, please indicate your interest in this thread.  There is no set date, so we can move it a bit if it allows for more participation - but we definitely need to make it 'firm' soon, so those who need to schedule vacation well in advance can give their boss their availability.

Remember:  We can't get anything put together, unless YOU say you'll come.  No participants means No Event!


Looking forward to seeing this take off.  :thumbup1

Color me very interested indeed! I should be able to make it, but I can't commit quite yet. Yeah, yeah, I know, I'm being flaky again. It depends on if I get the promotion I'm putting in for at work, and if I do, how it will affect my vacation time. I'm 99% sure that it won't be an issue either way, but I'll let y'all know for once I know for sure.

And I'll try to have my AR-15 by then too.  ;)

I'm investigating a couple of range options, one of which allows camping on-site (pro!) and no bathroom facilities (con!). If you're not interested in THAT primitive, it is within easy driving distance of hotels/motels. The good news with that one is that I'm pretty sure we could rent it out and have it all to our maniacal selves.

I'd like to come but I won't be able to say one way or the other till closer to the event. I'll say it's a strong maybe.

I'm in....

I belong to the Zanesville Rifle Club, the range is in the Blue  Rock State Park south if Z'ville near Duncan Falls.  Its got a campsite and a 200 meter range complete with target pits.  I can bring guests so that is a possibility.

Another might be meeting at the State Range at Deer Creek and then having dinner at the lodge in tne park.

On a lark, I took a look at the list of states that reciprocate with AZ for CCW Permits, and a map.  I could ride/drive all the way without having to go into a single state that doesn't.  Depending on how things go, I might make this one, just for the hell of it.  :thumbup1

Okay, I got figured out what I needed to get figured out regarding vacay time, so I am definitely in, funds permitting of course.  ;)

Question: could we possibly bring guests? I can think of a few buddies of mine (including one who might be a registered member of the forum, though I don't think he's posted at all) who might like to come.

I am very interested as well. As a suggestion, keep it out of Franklin County.

Sure, why not...  Gunnguy's son is not a member, either.  That said, they're not riding in my truck...  :neener

Are you kidding? Raymond is totally a member here. Unless he deleted his account, he is here to my knowledge.

May be that he got one...  Last time I was on the spreecast (and that was a while back) he claimed to not be a member...

That's part of the problem.

In all seriousness it's just too many variables. I may be quitting my job to become self employed next spring, we are planning a vacation, I have to get the garden planted, that's right around turkey season... Just a lot of stuff going on. But I will be watching this thread with great interest.

  I'd "like to".....see how work and life goes, I really can't tell 8 months in advance.

Early/mid-april I can usually scrape off a few days.

If it could be the first or third week in April I'd only have to take 2 days off and it's about a 10 hour give or take from Georgia...I think

  One thing for people to keep in mind (If it'll help....it'll help me).....Camp perry CMP store is nearby.

No clue if they'll have guns in stock again or not  :shrug  Their notice has been up for almost two years that they won't have field or service grade guns in stock in their stores.   May still have '06 ammo though, I don't know.

Uhhmm.....I am saying "if" a member like me came, where it's 26+ hours of solid driving anyway.

  I probably can't, but I wanted to make a trip like that anyway someday  :cool

I was told that 2-3 hours was not that close to a PA member. For me, it would be rounds bout 2 hr drive. That is close in my book. Just like next door. I have driven farther to shake a good man's hand who was just passing through. Heck, later this year I will be flying to Texas to meet up with folks from another forum for the second time. People coming in from Cali, Alaska, South Carolina, Washington, Utah, Tenn, Arkansas, Virginia, Georgia, Florida, New Mexico and me from Ohio. Epic four day weekend for the win.  :neener

As a Certified KCBS BBQ Judge, I drive farther than a couple of hours just to eat free BBQ.

I guess it is all in how much you want to put into it or not. I will happily drive a couple of hours to meet and shoot with some awesome members here. Call me crazy, just don't call me late for dinner.  ;)

Fair enough. I just didn't want people to be like "oh, let's go to the CMP store and then catch lunch" and get a rude shock. It's a bit of a hike from either Z-ville, Lancaster or C-Bus. But it is there, and if you're coming from the northwest, it's practically on the way. ;)

I just got a message asking about this, so I guess I have to update: No, this is not still being planned.  There was a bit of difficulty in getting a range secured, and I think after that it must have just slipped from most of our minds.  I know it did from mine.  :-\

If anyone else wants to take point in organizing something, that would be awesome.  At this point, I would suggest September, at the soonest, just so people can plan their lives around it.

Sorry that this did not work out.

Michael Z. Williamson has a ShootzenBoomenViggin every year in September at Bass and Bucks. Everyone is invited to attend, its Dutch so bring your money for the range. It's held in Wabash, Indiana and is a great time. Yes, Tanerite is used, yes full auto is used, range has up to 750 yard target areas.
