Default Palmer,MA R-100 weekend pics.

Last weekend we spent the weekend camping at the R-100 in Palmer Ma. It was Jen and I. Jared (Murphy617) and his Gf Melissa. His friend Tom. Craig and his gf Jen, and Steve. All members of Algonquin Archers. A whole weekend of hanging out with friends, drinking cold beer, eating food, relaxing by the fire, and shooting. It can't get much better!!!!

Friday night we all roled into camp and got set up. Cracked some beers and relaxed by the fire.

Saturday morning we got an early start, but there was a huge backlog on the Safari side. It took us almost 7 hours to shoot 50 targets. It was definitely fun though. We had a group of Ct people behind us, so we had local people to chat with all day.

Saturday night we were all smoked!!! we cooked up some burgers and dogs, and Kielbasa, and I had Venison Chili, and steaks. With all the food, and a few cold ones, none of us lasted very long. I must be getting old...lol

Who said Jared can't cook...

Saturday night around midnight it started to rain, and boy did it ever rain!!! It didn't stop till about 9:30 Sunday morning. We ended up going out to breakfast. If you are ever in the Palmer Ma. area, check out Girly's Grille!! Their breakfast was killer. The portions were huge, and the staff...well.... look at the name of the resturant...lol. The service was top notch.

We got to the club at 11, so we really had to rush through the N.A. side. Cards had to be in at 2:15. We didn't get any pics because we rushed through. The North american side was set up on Necamanseks public 3d course. This has to be the absolute best terrain I have ever shot. I will definitely take the 2 hour drive to shoot one of this clubs regular shoots. We got done at 3, and they barely accepted out cards. I heard at least 50 shooters got booted from the course before they finished. Thats BS!!! I can see having a cut off for starting the course, but once you are on the course you have no control over the speed of the crowd. Plus the morning rain didn't help.

All in all I had an awesome time. I shot like poo, as did most of us. The course was a lot harder then last years Vt R-100. Good friend, Good food, cold beer, and a relaxing weekend more then made up for the our shooting woes.

Everybody went home Sunday night except for Jen and I. We wanted a night to relax. Virg(Hilltophunter) was camping within view of us. Jen and I got a rare opportunity to spend some time around the fire with him and his wife Sunday. Sunday night was the highlight of the weekend. Absolutely nothing to do!!! I truly hope Rinehart has the shoot at this club next year. Was a nice short drive.,a gorgeous campground, and a very organized club hosting the event.

Have to include a few shameless Vortex Optics plugs!!!...
