Freeway is clear. Once off the freeway it’s packed snow and ice. Slow driving but very passable. The range itself is 8-12” of fluffy snow. Crisp clear AM!

The guys I was coming with who have AWD backed out, and my little acura probably isn't going to make it. Sorry guys.

That was a good time! Well worth it! Anybody get a head count? Looked like over 40 to me.

Can't wait to see the pics/vids posted!

Huge thanks to the folks who chipped in with food, heat, equip, and those who shared their toys! I‘d list the names but I don't want to miss anyone. You guys Rock!

Thanks WaGuns!!!

I'll post up some photos here in a bit, just got home and unpacked... a strong glass of Whisky is calling my name....

Thank you to everyone who put the event on.

And thanks to everyone who pushed my car out of the parking space.

You were missed. And by you, I meant your cannon.

What an excellent way to kick off the new year! It was great seeing everyone who was able to make it to ESC today. The camaraderie was outstanding, the shooting was amazing, the Tanerite was ho hum and I was told the food was good too. ;) I could go on an on but I’ll close with a big Woot! for WaGuns. Thanks Dan and Steve for providing this venue for our community. Thanks to all the mods too! Happy New Year!

Glad to know who it was this morning that my cousin and I were talking to. Hopefully you learned to go talk to other shooters and push your way in, lol

Normally this is where I post my video of the opening countown, the resulting volley and the dramatic Tannerite explosions.

Well, this year was a little different. We had a mix of questionable marksmanship and questionable explosive target quality, and I stopped filming after a full minute of blasting with no audible results. Not long after that, redstar decided that enough was enough, grabbed a real rifle (Garand) and blew the central Tannerite target. thumbsup

So I won't post the video, since it will just bore you. :ROFLMAO:

excellent smithers......another great time, fun to catch up with friends new and old. Love the event for many reasons but the less than vanilla toys yall bring are certainly a highlight and makes my pants tight.....a drum fed auto .22, .50 BMG and an M249 made this bitch a bit giggly. Thanks all

After a year off (2021, due to COVID drama), it was sure nice to be back out there today!

Thanks to everyone who came out, and to everyone for sharing and pitching in -- whether it was bringing food, cooking food, sharing guns, donating items, or whatever. I don't think anyone really knew what to expect due to the weather, but it turned out to be a really great event.

I didn't shoot much, but I did shoot a few rounds from some really interesting guns. Big thanks to redstar, das napeth and Sinus211 for sharing their toys with me. :4couple:
