I just provide visual aids. I don't go into specifics.:D

Sure wish Houston was closer to Gainesville. Perhaps in the future. You guys will have a great time!

We have aeroplanes now. They go real fast!

@tarbe and @Buff-Buster and I are trying to brainstorm right now. With the three of us on it, what could go wrong?

Cody,

A friend of mine owns a pub in downtown Houston. However, it's not real close to the George R. Brown Convention Center. I've organized small get togethers after the Houston Marathon the last couple of years. I can probably get a few tables reserved. Not really any discounts, but the prices are fairly reasonable.

The Brass Tap is located at 922 Holman. There is a public parking garage adjacent to the pub, so parking is easy.

What we really need is for Gordy and Sons (https://gordyandsons.com/) to organize another book signing event and feed like they did last year with Dr. Kevin Robertson. I thought Gordy might do the same type of deal with John Sharp.

Yes, John spoke with Russell last year when we were there last year with Kevin. John hasn’t mentioned anything about an event there but we can check. I like the Brass Tap idea also!

From the Brass Tap website - I am a little worried about that last word...

"The Brass Tap Houston offers over 150+ craft beers from around the globe in a neighborhood atmosphere that feels both relaxed and upscale"

I could possibly hold a get together sometime at my place in East Central Minnesota. East side of Mille Lacs lake, couple hours North of the Twin Cities.

Thinking a shoot similar to what the Alaska guys do? I am slowly progressing on a 500 yard range. As well as pistol and archery.

We could also organize something at the Hinckley Casino during the Lake Superior SCI Convention.

And there is a new Charter in Fargo ND that I'm sure something could be arranged as well.

And Des Moines Iowa.

If enough interest.

I'm hoping to see Carol give the Peta turds a hard time again! Worth the price of admission!

Double rifles at 500 yards! It will be epic!

Just make sure the targets are rather large. :)

I have just opened up this new forum section which I hope will bring even more people together from AH. I got inspiration for this new section because I thought it was so great that an AH member (@PHOENIX PHIL) planned a very successful dinner party on his own volition for fellow AH members to meet up at DSC.

That really made me think that it would be great if people could plan any kind of informal get togethers nearby where they live, any time of the year, even if it was only a couple of people who turned up. It inspires me to think that AH could go beyond just being a website that you visit and become a place for social connections in your everyday life.

I think it would be good to include the locality of your get together in the title of your post.

Looking forward to hearing about some of your get togethers...
Great idea! Anyone want to have a braai in the bushveld? :)

Hi Luke. Just saw your message. I am in Dillingham, and have been since 2002. I took an elementary teaching gig here, taught here five years, and then got a job with Togiak National Wildlife Refuge as their education and outreach specialist. Recently I just got a promotion and now I'm the Visitor Services Manager. Prior to DLG I spent 6 years teaching for Lake and Pen in Nondalton.

Hi TT
I am glad you found some useful info in my posts. Hard cast WFN with GC will do the job fine. I trust Veral Smith (owner of LBT company) - I believe that he can provide you with some finest HC bullets. Many companies are coping his design. I can help you from here in developing max loads (40.000psi) just let me know which powder you are using (I use Quick Load software which turns to be very reliable).
