Matt, Judy and I will see you at the hotel Thursday evening or Hopkins Game Farm on Friday.

 

Those of you live close and don't come will miss a big opportunity to have fun shooting side by sides or just drooling over the guns that most of us can never afford but love to look at.

 

Any UJ'ers without a SxS who want to shoot one I'll have 7 of them with me and will be happy to lend one for a round.  Just send me a PM if interested.

 

Bob

Was hoping to make this event, it's not that far from where I live.  Work has other plans for me though, I'm out of town giving a workshop at a conference these dates.  Everyone that does makes it; hope you have a great time.

I was thinking of going on Friday, mostly to check out the vendors.  Is there shooting for non-registered attendees?

Steveziv,

 

Definitely come have a look in the vendor tents. That's free. If you have a SxS, bring it along and shoot an event or two. If you don't have one, I bet someone will put one in your hand and shoot a round with you if you're interested. There will be a pop-up tent with the Carolina Vintagers banner on it, and if I'm not on the course you can find me there and I'll lend you a gun and shoot with you.

 

As for non-VGC shooting, you might want to call Hopkins (see number above) and see how they are handling. ----Matt Haney

Thanks for the offer. I have a few side-by's so I'll throw my stuff in the trunk just in case and play it by ear.

steveziv - I always want to meet fellow UJ'ers so be sure to stop by the Carolina Vintagers EZ-up and ask for Bob Holliday.  If my wife and I are not out shooting or drooling over guns in the Vendor tents we're usually near the Carolina Vintagers EZ-up and, if not, someone there should be able to locate us.
