In honor of Alte, I will be cooking a few dishes with beets so he feels at home here at Casa Axxe!  :wave1:

......

Don't they make Vodka from beets?

Unless i'm mistaken, vodka is made from potatoes. And the potatoes in my garden are growing wonderfully! :wave1:

TXAZ, I looked it up, and there are several different things that vodka is made from, potatoes being one of the primary sources it's derived from, (fermented potatoes.) and sugar beets is another one, so that could be what you were thinking of when you mentioned beets.

As far as I'm concerned, the dates listed in the poll are very flexible. My main goal is for good weather, and that the date allows for as many as possible to come.

Shameless Bump!  :wave1:

Sort of an update. I got a cord of wood for the smoker last Saturday, and the two brothers that are going to cut up my downed trees should be starting pretty soon. Two large trees leaned over and uprooted right on the rifle range!

Due to other things that are possibly coming up, and lack of interest, I'm not sure that this fall meet & shoot is going to be able to take place after all.

Sounds like you are the one that lacks interest! Get your ass to work clearing those trees.
 
Just like in Field of Dreams, If you build it - they will come.

Whether the shoot & meet happens, or doesn't happen, the tree cutting and clearing is going on. And you're right, I have lost interest, because I have made three updates to this thread in almost going on three months, and no one else has replied to it. That leads me to believe that no one else is interested anymore.

Unless I see some renewed interest in the fall shoot & meet, I can't see wasting my time making preparations for something that no one is going to show up for.

The downed trees have to be cut and cleared, whether there is meet or not, and that is going on right now. some of the trees are in places where the ranges are, so they do interrupt the lanes. With the heat, things are just not progressing as fast or smoothly as I had hoped in making the preparations for a meet, and that also pushes back to when the weather cools off other projects I need to take care of.

Without people being interested enough to come, it's just kind of hard from my end to put effort into making preparations for a meet and then no one shows up at the last minute. If I KNEW that quite a few people wanted this to happen and were making plans on attending, Then it might motivate me to making the preparations for the meet. But with my health and limited amounts of energy to do things, I do have to somewhat prioritize my projects and what time I spend on doing things.

Some years ago, TXhillbilly and I set up a shoot & meet on another forum, and judging by the initial interest on that thread, we had close to about 25 people that SAID they were planning on coming. Six people actually showed up, not including Hillbilly and myself. We were a little disappointed in the turnout. I spent quite a bit of my own money renting the private range for the weekend.

I just voted for Oct. 12 -14. No particular reason other than it should be cooler by then.

I'm open for any date,so it really doesn't matter to me.

If the current temps are any indicator, and what they have been in Sept. and Oct. in the past couple of years, I might push it up to November for cooler weather.

I'm planning to attend.  As long as this date gets locked in before I commit elsewhere - I'm in.

I have revised the poll to delete some dates and add some new ones, that move it into November, to hopefully take advantage of some cooler weather. The last three years, those around here baling hay, have beem baling up into even November for their last cutting for the season!

Check the dates, and recast your vote if needed. IF the interest is high enough, I will set a locked in date based on the highest number of votes for that date.
