How We Fared at Railroad Flat Rendezvous, April 25-27, 2014

It began raining (with hail thrown in for good measure) Thursday night and did not stop until Friday night. The range opened Friday and a few stalwarts shot between rain drops. Saturday was overcast and cold. Sunday had some sun and was slightly less chilly. No one was stuck in the mud though! Our Saturday potluck was, as usual, delicious.

May 17 Mini Rendezvous

What's a mini rendezvous? SCML is a small club without access to a large property such as BLM land or a friendly ranch that would accommodate multitudes of shooters, campers, traders and interested members of the public. We do however have club members who have a few hundred acres suitable for a trail walk. Fortunately they like rendezvous and are generous enough to offer their hospitality to club members and their guests for a day of shooting. Spring usually means rendezvous at Ron & JoAnn Wisler's ranch, 15005 Kincaid Rd, Mt Hamilton. This year it will be Saturday May 17th.
The land is hilly with no room for trailer camping but there is room for tent camping if you want to spend the weekend. The rifle trail walk has a variety of targets at varying distances that clang, bang, swing or disintegrate. A tomahawk and knife trail walk is optional for a small donation. These activities are followed by a sumptuous potluck.
This is a blanket shoot so bring a prize to put on the blanket, shooting related or not, equivalent to the cost of a can of powder ($15 - $20). Choosing a prize off of the blanket is in descending score order.
Bring a dish to share. The club will provide Corralitos sausages. There is also a $5.00 shooting fee.

Date: Saturday, May 17, 2014
