Planning a Gathering In/Around KC in August

Post by ESquared » Fri Apr 12, 2019 8:51 am

Have been back and forth with JEB, and it looks like we have a great window for a get-together in the KC area the week of August 12th.

Obviously there are lots of details to be worked out, but here's a DRAFT of how it might unfold:

Wed, 8/14: Attendees arrive in time for dinner. KC BBQ, of course!
Thur, 8/15: Range Day, lunch somewhere, R&R time, followed by KC Royals vs. St. Louis Cardinals (in town for a 2-game series).
Fri, 8/16: Potential Range Day #2 (depending on preferences, maybe a different range?), lunch TBD and afternoon departures.

If you're even remotely interested, please send me a PM and I'll start a list. Lots of details to be figured out, from shooting venues to accommodations to game tickets to restaurants.

For those of you who might do this as part of a bigger/longer visit to the area, here's a link to the KC Visitor's Site:

More to come!

Now that we've surrounded the "WHEN" part of it, the next big thing is "WHERE" will we go for some shooting fun. As some of you may be aware, PT7's son-in-law is a competitive long range shooter, a Henry owner, a police firearms trainer and all around great guy. He also happens to own and run a fantastic outdoor range on his property, and he's adding to its features, bells and whistles all the time.

We'll likely do about a five-hour visit (late AM/Lunch/early PM), with lots of details to be worked out. We'd do this on either Wednesday or Thursday, as noted above, depending on arrival times, etc.

Here's the link to the facility, but I believe he's added quite a few amenities that aren't even listed yet.

In addition, PT's daughter operates a small AirBnB facility on the property and has a townhouse in North KC that might work out for some.

PM me if interested in more details or if you think you might be able to make it.

Yep, very high-touch, not just some RSO barking at you for hours. Vic's a great guy and very knowledgeable and generous with his time.

In Metro KC, there are two Mo Dept of Conservation ranges, and the one known as Parma Woods is about 73 miles from Hamilton. The other one, north of Blue Springs, is about 75 miles away. So, "in the area"? Not really.

Hamilton is beautiful countryside, but fairly remote.
