Railroad Flat News
The usual suspects were in attendance: Ron and JoAnn, Sherry, Paul, Mike, Bert and Patty, Leslie, Don, Frank, Rusty, Allen, Tim. Seldom seen but always welcome were Glenn and Barbara Hildebrand and Mike's daughters Annie and Rachael. Hope I didn't forget anyone!
The weather was hot and dry; the daytime heat kept the nights from getting too cool. The drive between Hwy 49 and Railroad Flat revealed stark reminders of the recent fires but the immediate area around RR Flat appeared untouched. The buffalo in the meadow across the road provided a picturesque backdrop to our fun.
Of course we enjoyed a sumptuous potluck on Saturday night with the added treat of two birthday cakes - one baked by JoAnn and one baked by Frank - to celebrate Bert and Sherry's birthdays.
Overall attendance was quite good with several junior shooters and a couple of pee wees.
