For lodging in the area do a search on Chino Valley, AZ. 86323

Fine dining establishments are located in Chino Valley, AZ. Fish Fry Friday is at the Windmill House, $10.00/head, all you can eat and not too shabby either.

Free camping on the National Forest. Primitive conditions, I will pass the hat for a porta-john.

I will have some steel targets, and hopefully Tom & Dino to help place them. My wooden target frames have taken quit a beating and may or may not be available for paper targets.

If you have suitable targets for pistol, rifle or other and bring it/them along.

Looks like I finally have a couple of Class III weapons coming to RR. .308 and 9mm for planning purposes. Met this gentleman at the rendezvous this afternoon. He likes to play and shoot.

I noticed that the Days Inn is completely booked up for that week-end, no vacancy.

I was able to get two rooms at the Primrose Inn up the street.

I'll try to bring some target materials along.

I've got a bunch of Army Qualification targets that I'll bring along.

I plan on spending a few(dozen) rounds of .308 getting my new scope zeroed on the STG-58.

Spotting scope?

Bring any and all accessories that you think you will need. Spotting scopes, chronograph, portable shooting table, sun shade, chairs, ammo...

Talked to my friend that works Gunsite last night. He has RR on the calendar now. May bring more Class III weapons and ammo to purchase.

This could be the biggest, baddest Rumpshot's Revenge yet. :D

Dang! You're my "go-to guy" for Enfield and Webley info. Now I might be forced to talk to my brother!

I'll bring a sunshade, some tables and chairs, a spotting scope and laser range-finder. I might bring a few guns, too. :roll:
I've got an AR-15 golfball launcher coming in the mail, too.

I'll go ahead and pick up a pack of these:

Those .22 targets look suspiciously like the "Sure Shot" targets that 308Mike brought over a couple years ago. Will have to make sure to clear around them to prevent any fires. A couple of WET (read HEAVY) gunny sacks and a couple buckets of water should back up the cleared area.

I booked the Porta-John. Price has gone up this year, now $95 for the weekend.

Will try to make a run up to the site this weekend. Hope the neighbors that shoot just up the road can join us this year.

How about a head count on who plans to be there for dinner on Saturday night.

Flintlock Tom and siblings, Friday night Fish Fry is $10.00 per head if you are interested. The Mrs. and I would be interested. Anyone else. This is in Chino Valley.

Tom, if I'm not able to go, I might still be able to provide some of my remaining SureShot targets. I'll have to see if I can dig them up.

SOMEONE PLEASE make sure you get LOTS of photos for the rest of us who may be only able to attend in spirit and not body.

Fish-Fry sounds good to me and Little Sister. We are making preparations for getting underway on Tuesday, should reach Pauldon early Friday. We will contribute to the PortaPotty fund; an item of special interest to L. Sister. Dinner on Saturday sounds good too.

By the way, our approach will be from the north, off of I-40 west of Flagstaff.

I was hoping to leave San Diego Thursday night but it's looking more like I won't be able to get on the road until early Friday. I plan to be to Chino Valley early afternoon, like 1 or 2ish.

Mike, if you have some stuff to send along, give me a call and I'll pick it up.

If I can dig up some books to take for Dana, do you think you might have some room? If so, I'll see about trying to get together some more books for their store, including (perhaps) all of my MHI books. For some reason, I'm finding it difficult to part with them even though I've read each one several times (but I haven't read Dead Six more than once). Each time I re-read a book, I ALWAYS pickup something I missed the previous times. ;)

I have some Tannerite I'll be bringing.

Planning to get on the road AM Friday, so there by noon or so. I'll be camping at the site.

I wouldn't object to going out for dinner Friday but I'm not sure of this fish-fry concept. I don't generally hold truck with eating fish. Do they have other menu options there?

Definitely in for Saturday evening dinner.

Dino, from Flag head west to Ashfork. South on Hwy89 25 miles to Paulden, right turn on Big Chino and the directions merge.

John, the Windmill House in Chino Valley has a fish fry with the usuall trimmings, they also have a variety. Linky. Looks like baked chicken and pasta dishes for alternatives. $10.00/person includes non-alcohol beverages, beer and wine available at the bar.

Shiny. I'm in for that. I'll be up at the site by noon friday for set-up and such.

Me & Flintlock Tom, mano a mano! Steel target. Offhand. Iron sights! Should be fun. 285 yards or so, uphill. Steel is approximately 1'x4'.

Weather report. This morning at 6 AM it was right at 32 degrees at the house. It could be a bit warmer up the hill at the site.

Low this month at the house: 28.6 and a high of 89.5. Average wind speed: 2 mph with a high of 35 mph.

Tom, with all the crap going on at our home, I regret I haven't been able to get enough items together for you to take to Rumpshots. Please proceed without our contributions, and we hope you have a "explosive" time, if not a well-read one!!!. :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol:

Bit coolish outside, 26 degrees at the house!

Will be headed up the hill to the site soon. 3 camps up there. Got the site setup with several targets yesterday. Flintlock Tom placed distance markers from 25 yards to 200 yards.

Should be a bunch of local folks show up for the shoot. Not so much on the Guncounter folks this year. Sure wish that BE603 could have brought the young Marine over for some fun. Haven't gotten a rise out of Workin. He has family in the area and should come over to visit. Rod has a pretty good excuse this year as does Chris and Mel. Kommander has bowed out due to work, that is a pretty lame excuse.

On site are Dino and Little Sister, Flintlock Tom (all siblings); AZ Mark, and John OC.

Don't know about any full auto weapons for sure. Could be a couple. The guy from Gunsite may show up, but without any FUN switches.

Got a couple of folks are planning on Sunday afternoon. Hopefully they are early since we usually are cleaning up by then.

I made good time going home. I pulled up to my house in San Diego exactly 6.5 hours after leaving Paulden. Mapquest says it's 438 miles. That's an average speed of 67.38 MPH, including one stop for gas.

Had a wonderful, relaxing time. Pictures to follow.
