  • status of lane rentals and space available

    just to keep everyone in the loop... all lane sessions are now booked.

    W1 - 10/10
    W2 - 10/10
    R1 - 10/10
    R2 - 10/10


    ... that doesn't mean that more folk can't ATTEND the shoot (reg remains open pretty much until the week before, then it's cash on-site and hopefulness that we have enough badges) but all the lanes are now spoken for. you have to hope that there's space for you at someone else's lane.

    we allow all people who have rented lanes to designate them as...

    open to anyone (contributions for ammo and such are common)
    open to foreigners (so they can experience the goodness that is our gun laws)
    open to military (thank you for your service)
    open to foreigners and military
    private lane for folk the lane renter was expecting and/or traveling with already

    ... most lanes tend to be in the first few categories. as long as you're willing to chip in for someone's ammo and/or have something that you'd like to let others try shooting you're often likely to find space to shoot and have fun.

DRM, low bit rate, etc... OiNK it existed because it filled a void of what people want."

      I guess maybe that's an outdated convention, and possibly specific to the US... many older forms of shorthand on calendars, etc. used "T" for tuesday (i suppose just because it comes earlier in the week and thus has supremacy) and used "R" for thursday (since there i no letter R in tuesday... but then why not use "H"? i don't know)

      so yeah... Wednesday 1, Wednesday 2, Thursday 1, Thursday 2.

          You sold out thursday 2 months out right? Have you thought about adding more lanes? We're still 6 weeks out, I bet you could sell 4ish more lanes easily.

          But you probably use the same number of lanes each day because of a 2-day rental right? So I guess it only makes sense to rent as many lanes as will be purchased Wednesday.

            Quick question regarding what to pay. We have reserved one lane plus two badges for the first Wednesday shoot. A friend has reserved a lane for the second shoot in Wednesday. Do we simply pay another $40 ($20 per person) for the two of us to shoot in the second shoot in his lane? Or do I need to do something different for us for that second shoot?

            Thanks!

              W1 - 10/10
              W2 - 8/10
              R1 - 10/10
              R2 - 10/10


              ... i will keep this post updated as much as possible, and the PayPal backend will not allow over-selling of items when they are exhausted, so get on it if you want to reserve a lane for this summer.
              I just tried to reserve a lane for the second half of Wednesday, but it looks like those are all sold out now. I've been meaning to reserve it for a few weeks now, so it's my fault for waiting too long. Were there any plans to add additional lanes?

                Just find my lane. By the second half I'm usually done shooting.

                    Oh boo! Hope you heal quickly. I imagine shooting with your camera will be more difficult, also. :(

                      I had the doc shape my cast to form fit my Nikon D4. So I can hold it without even knowing it. :>
