    Oct. gathering by the Range-NC/SC

    Hope this is the appropriate place and that I have not posted about it before. We have a gathering twice yearly(April/Oct) near Rockingham, NC at a shooting sports 4-H camp close to Ellerbe(Rockingham Race Track). This year it is 15-17 Oct. We have the "run" of the camp, ranges, lake, dining hall, and kitchen. We have been doing this for about a dozen years and it is quite an informative fun family outing. Cost is negligible at $5 per night per adult for the nicely renovated cabins or tent/RV free. About $20 for food covers five meals. There is a Dutch Oven Cooking Contest Sat. afternoon and a fish fry Friday evening so folks don't have to worry about cooking. Mornings are "dun right" with country ham, eggs, jams/jellies, and even hash browns for the "yankees"-lol. Pancakes/cereals/waffles for the young and young at heart. There are "classes" scattered through out the day and evening on all kinds of survivalist/pioneering skills. BS circles abound around the campfire circle, fireplace, and porches. Ranges(100 rifle/50 pistol/shotgunn/skeet/archery) are open constantly and we have competitions for youth and adults. Last year a cute whiff of a little girl with a pink 22 out shot all the boys--she was strutting afterwards and smiling from ear to ear. PM for details/pics/info on past events. Folks often come in from several states-Fla/Penn/Tenn/Al/Ga/Vir and even New Jersey. Last year we had one from Ohio-he is planning on coming back to this one. We have a grand time, learn lots about providing for our families, eat extremely well, and leave with a renewed confidence that we can face harsh times and overcome them. It is an open carry state but we simply ask that no one have a loaded gun while showing it to others or if unholstered. I have a hole in me from an "empty gun". We have always had a wonderful time, have met many dear friends, and learned from many knowledgeable folks. There are folks attending from "ditch diggers" like me to nuclear physicist and college profs. Like Will Rogers said: "I never met a man I did not like"--- and I have never met anyone at one of the gatherings that I did not like. Hope to see some folks from here and if you do you will look forward to the next ones with --as Tony the Tiger says---Greeeeaaaaattt anticipation.

    601 through Pageland to Monroe or #1 through Cheraw will help. #1 will "dump" you right onto 220 in Rockingham-10 miles north onto bypass around Ellerbe and right onto Millstone road East for @4-5 miles. The drive is named Mallard if punching into a GPS. Bring your Dutch Oven or camp cooking favorite pot and jump right into the fun.

    LOL, one of our regulars went to the Carri bean last spring when we had it. We razzed him for preferring the soft gentle breezes, magnificent beaches, and cute bikinis over "hard tack and cheese" (old military rations-joke).
