    That's a start, how about round trip airfare? On second thought, I'd nearly just as soon drive. To fly, I would have to travel through DFW, and I have never got home on time even once!

    Judging by most of the regulars who make these meets, the early and later summer months (August being the last) are usually times our kids and grand kids already have lined out for us. I like early May before school has let out or early September when school has taken back up. The costs of Lodging and fuel are usually a little less in the off season.

    I've never been to Wisconsin, but a dunk tank for moderators and administrators just might get me up there!

    Well...if you fill it with beer you'll probably get a few volunteers!

    That's what I was thinking...June has graduations and weddings, July can get hot although we had a gorgeous day last summer. August is the time to get vacations in before school starts, although Wisconsin has some great activities for a family vacation.

    September and October are beautiful in Wisconsin especially touring around Lake Geneva. I don't want to compete with Rapid City which happens around Labor Day however. Maybe I should have put October up there.

    So I was talking with a friend about this shindig and they sent me to look at this for a venue. So take a look and give feedback. If it looks feasible then maybe I'll take a little road trip to check it out.

    When they can figure out how to legislate Morality and Conscience I will consider talking more gun laws.

    Wow, nice range! I'm keeping an eye on this. It could make a nice bike trip.

    It adds close to an hour each way for me. It does look nice though.

    Yeah I realize that and I also just spent 2.5hrs. online looking in both Wisconsin and Illinois for outdoor ranges that would be appropriate and accommodate handguns , rifles and maybe some trap. Something that would draw people together. Put this way if we had a gathering of enough people I would make a trip to southern Illinois or Indiana just to meet members from say Kentucky or Tenn.. I also have a hope to make the Dakota meet and then travel on to Mont. to visit my sisters. Unfortunately my wife doesn't have the vacation time this year to do that.

    Still not seeing a whole lot of interest or feedback on this.
