Did you ...
... see the "Standing Stone?"
We took folks to see it all three days of the festival - right
down by the river and wood's walk.
We were really pleased with the grounds.
Two 30' by 50' tents welcomed us. All the facilities we could
ever ask for.
Room for you and your friends in the
Hot grilled food for three days all
day long ...
Great conversations and "show
and tell times"
Fields of steel reactive targets.
Lots of well dressed folk ...
This is what the well dressed retired
Navy fighter pilot was wearing this Fall. ;?)
Standing by for you and your gear ...
Hope you enjoyed the area down by the
river - right beside the woods walk games.
I broke away a few times to run folks
down there myself. Beautiful and peaceful ...
What a beautiful range. Hope you enjoyed
this. Here's just one of the lanes of the Wood's Walk for small
and big bore. The targets are there ... you see them?
Here a group plays through the woods
walk. The tall fella in the foreground is Kevin. He worked for
months to prepare for the Festival. Here, he's acting as Range
officer after driving the guys and their equipment down in an
ATV truck. I brought Julio down and watched awhile before I had
to get back up to the firing line.
Hope you tried your skills on the running
targets. Rigged for either small or large bore. There goes one

cable, clamps, eye bolts, pulleys, and rigging materials for the

Boar - the 58 Yukon at the ready
Generous folk loaned out their rigs
all weekend. Lon waited his turn on my ledger and paid his $5k
for a Tricked out, handmade 32 Ranger Magnum. Here, he's loaned
Rick the rig to shoot the Big bore camp. Part of what Standing
Stone offers. I can't go door to door for folks to see and try
my stuff - but at SS, it's all there for whomever wants to try
Julio flew in from Puerto Rico. He
slid in behind the 58 Yukon and shot this three shot group @75
yards. The black dot is the aim spot. You see his cloverleaf three
shots of 450 grain slugs @ about 625 foot pounds of energy.
Hope you tried the Small bore camp.
We lost track of how many folks borrowed the Liberty 25 to shoot
the game. Here, my wife Kelly enjoys a round of Small bore Camp.
And, by Golly, she won the Silver medal!!
A group of the winners. Nice to see
all those smiles. What a great time.
Our lodging head quarters. Beautiful
rooms and service. The folks really went the extra mile to prepare
for us. Hot coffee and hot cookies anytime you wanted. Beautiful
indoor pool for your evening enjoyment.
You see that little section of guard
rail to the left of my shoulder? Right back that country road
about 3 miles was the Festival grounds. Wonderful convenience.
Hope you enjoyed it with us. Hope you
enjoyed everything that was built into the Festival.
This is just the start of sharing it
all with you. I have discs of pics coming from all over from folks
who enjoyed it with us.
Afterwards, Kelly and I drove down
to the gulf for awhile. Got back last evening. The shop was left
in a mess from countless late night sessions. I have to beat back
the jungle around the house. The trailer is still loaded with
all the show stuff. Yep ... we're back. And we made some fine
Thanks so much to the Cumberland Valley
Sports League. You guys made it happen.
