Let me know what matches you are running on what day. Bob and I have been prepping for June. Today I did the 300 yard course and the every 10 yards handgun course.

I don't need you practicing - we can't keep up with you as it is!!!

I'll keep you posted on the schedule. What I know is listed up top. We'll probably do some smaller matches on Saturday as well but what's posted for Sat & Sun are pretty solid.

Are you going to use the 600-yard valley on Friday? I currently have it closed on Saturday and Sunday. I understand you are doing the 300-yard match on Saturday and the long range shoot on Sunday.

I don't think we will have matches scheduled on the 600 on Friday. Dudes may be shooting from the main firing line.

It's only a 13 hour drive

Seriously, though - if a bunch of you dudes carpooled, it would make for a fun road trip.

Hopefully this keeps the events visible to members only so any old dickweed can't get the event details.

Yeah, 'cause everyone knows we don't have any dickweed members.

Here are few ideas that I came up with for our shirts. Have a gander and let me know your ideas.
Let's do this via e-mail for now so I can keep your suggestions in one spot and not clutter up this thread please. Use my screen name plus @yahoo.com.




The front sight design would be just the black with no white box.

We're coming from the Toledo, OH/Detroit, MI and points north area. Pack your gear, fill the tank, keep that door on the left closed and you'll be there in no time.

Do we need a new FILES quote at the bottom? Same as last year or none?

I don't know where to put the names with the sight design. The bolt face had a nice little cut out for them.

What if the names go under the sights...or even in the sights above the post?

I believe that a new quote is in order for the year, perhaps something about tide pods

Dead center directly under the sights?

The sight art I have has the front post crisp and clear with the sight ears and
and rear sight blurred. Is that image good?

I have not run any of this stuff by my shirt guy yet.

For a quote,

“Russia did it”

I forgive you Longshot. If anyone gives you shit, then fuck those guys. Hahaha

I like the left chest better than center of the shirt. As for the image, I don't think it matters much so long as everything is there.

Thanks Matty. And to think, I was going to suggest putting your name in the sights on all of the shirts...

I like the sights on the left chest, too. As for the quote, how about this one from DB?

"Does your Woman like it in the Buttocks?"

I pray you jest.

My shirt guy's wife is the one who actually does these shirts and having to explain "What can you say about?" was tough enough.

Oh yeah, that's a much better idea. It's MY wife that gets the banners done and she'd never send that to the banner guys.

This is a tough club to belong to...

But she did ask if we're doing a banner this year.

Just tell her that some dude that goes by, "Beef Supreme" put you up to it!

Yeah, hoping we can get a banner for this year, I think it's a cool tradition.

Once we get the shirt details worked out, I'll put the info up top. Do you think the cost will be about the same this year?

Yes, I'd expect them to be the same price within a buck or two. Once I submit the artwork to him I'll have a firm price.

We can certainly get a banner done. Still haven't seen SAIGA 5.45's hanging up anywhere but sboone's smaller one shows up here now and again.
