Wow, where does the time go? The shoot is a little over a month away, and folks are making plans from all over the country to attend... It's hard to believe that this is the fifth annual shoot - it seems like just yesterday I had the crazy idea of herding all these cats around... :) So, once more, here's the standard format:
Date: Sunday, August 12th.
Time: The shoot starts at 10:00 AM and goes until we're kicked out (typically before 5 PM - and to the best of my knowledge Doubletrouble has never kicked anyone out; we generally have had so much shootie fun that we're ready to go home and nap...)
Location: Doubletrouble's sooper seekrit range, the location of which is highly classified. It is in New Hampster, though, so all ordnance is accepted.

Okay, here's the bad(ish) news. With 21 definites and six maybes, we're very close to capacity on the Sooper Seekrit range. At this point we're not turning folks away, but we might have to ask if folks could stagger arrival times or some other option if we get many more definites. We've had close to 30 people on site in years past; rarely more than 4-5 people shooting at one time; this generally works well (and I will have Mr. Whistle to call hot and cold range, of course). I'm not ready to turn anyone away yet, but we're starting to get close. If you're on the fence about coming, sooner rather than later is a good time to speak up...
Miscellaneous: As with last year, this is a "pack-in, pack-out" shoot - if you want to bring a Sturgeon-class submarine to shoot the hell out of, go right ahead. Just be prepared to drag the bullet-riddled carcass out with you. We can call the sub shop for lunch, but someone should step up to take care of the lunch order so Mrs. Doubletrouble doesn't have to deal with that again...
Looking forward to seeing everyone again!
That is all.
