AAR – Monthly Shoot’n’Que Burro Canyon – Saturday, 09-27 – Azusa

Tags : 

Saturday’s shoot was laid back. Those that turned out were a varied group of shooters. Several came after the safety briefing at 10:00 AM. The count came out to 25. The day was marvelous and the temperature was comfortable. During lunch the wind picked up significantly, at one point that afternoon marching a 12×12 easy-up about two lengths along the central berm beyond the firing line (Cease Fire! Cease Fire! Cease Fire!).

As usual the plates were full between the burgers, links, marinated chicken and carne asada. We had a nice cooking area with and easy-up and again crazychinaman and helpers handled the cooking duties. A big Thank You!, to those who helped out.

RFBIII and repo4sale ‘tag-teamed’ on the RSO duties. Thanks Bob and John! Note: additional RSO’s will be needed at all future events on the East 1A/B ranges, due to the divided line, so folks, please volunteer to help!

Again Gun Effects, our shoot sponsor provided several great prizes. Our three prize winners were TheComedian (Javier D.), RFBIII (Bob B.) and crazychinaman (Al F.). KEN RYAN (same) won the 2nd quarterly Grand Prize. Ken, please let us know what you pick for your ‘at cost’ item from Gun Effects. The remaining non-winning tickets were discarded and next month the sweepstakes tickets process will start over for the 3rd quarter.

Thanks to everyone for coming and special thanks for all those who helped make the event enjoyable!

See you next month.

After Action Report (AAR) Monthly Shoot’n’Que Burro Canyon – Sunday, 08/31 – Azusa

Tags : 

Sunday was a hot day at Burro Canyon. 33 people attended. I suspect that the reduced headcount was due to the Labor Day holiday and the summer heat. This month the thread was closed when we reached a headcount of 60. Unfortunately several cancellations on Friday and Saturday dropped the attendees by 11 and there were 21 no shows. It is a fine line having to balance between people who sign-up and those who do not show. 

As usual the plates were full between the burgers, links, carne asada and a large tasty watermelon. We had a nice cooking area with and easy-up and again crazychinaman and bheard handled the cooking duties. Thanks Albert and Bruce! 

RFBIII once again ‘stepped up’ for the RSO duties. Thanks Bob! Note: additional RSO’s will be needed at future events on the East 1 range, due to the divided line, so folks, please volunteer to help!

Again Gun Effects, our shoot sponsor provided several great prizes. Our three prize winners were, RFBIII (Bob B.), Amalord (Amador S.) and Tank1974 (Troy M.). CGSSA provided a brick of 22lr which was won by cesarnono13 (Cesar C.). Reminder: Retain the non-winning raffle tickets as they will be used, for those who attend, during the quarterly Grand Prize drawing in September. 

Thanks to everyone for coming and special thanks for all those who helped make the event a success. 

See you next month.

Subject: Campaign for National Monument status in San Gabriels- Meeting tonight 08/26/14 1600 hrs in Baldwin Park CA

National Monument status for the San Gabriels may mean no hunting at some time, either through additional access limitations from the current Wilderness designations or that National Monuments can come under the auspices of the National Park Service (Pinnacles is an example of this.). Watershed issues implied too.
Congresswoman Judy Chu is backing this movement, apparently. She’s a Dem from Pasadena/Flintridge, Husband is Mike Eng (former mayor of Monterey Park, CA State Assembly, and currently with Eng and Nishimura doing immigration law.
National monument issues can result in shooting ban attempts like in Arizona.

[B]EVENT DETAILS:
Who: Friend, family, neighbors and you!
What: San Gabriel Mountains Community Meeting
When: Tuesday, August 26, 4:00 p.m. – 7:30 p.m.

After Action Report (AAR) Monthly Shoot’n’Que Burro Canyon – Saturday, 07/26 – Azusa

After Action Report (AAR) Monthly Shoot’n’Que Burro Canyon – Saturday, 07/26 – Azusa

Saturday was a beautiful, hot day at Burro Canyon.  Approximately 45 people attended.  I suspect that the reduced headcount was due to the expected heat, which did not disappoint.  The challenges of the ‘split line’ coordination were greatly reduced by the radios that repo4sale (John) brought.  Thank you repo!  As usual the plates were full between the burgers, links, carne asada and the 30+ pounds of soy marinated chicken.  I was unable to bring the CGSSA trailer, so my BBQ was missing and there was a shortage of table space and shade at the cooking area, but as usual with the help of our community we made it a success.  Thanks to crazychinaman and the others who performed the cooking chores.

Repo4sale, and RFBIII once again ‘stepped up’ for the RSO duties.  Thanks for their hard work and help.  

Note: additional RSO’s will be needed at future events on the East 1 range, due to the divided line challenges.  So folks, please volunteer to help!

Our three raffle prize winners were, BlueCrash (Paul K.), RFBIII (Bob B.), and crazychinaman (Albert F.).  Thanks again to our sponsor, Gun Effects, for the raffle.  Visit their new store at 15313 Gale Ave., Industry, (626) 333-7097, and mention you are with Calguns.  Reminder:  Retain the non-winning raffle tickets as they will be used, for those who attend, during the quarterly Grand Prize drawing in September.

Many began calling for a day early, so our final cease fire was around 2:15.  Thanks to everyone for coming and special thanks for all those who helped make the event a success.  Sorry, I took no pictures.

See you next month.
