Has anything more taken place concerning putting together a BBQ/shoot? If youâ€™ve not made arrangements yet, Iâ€™d suggest you consider the Hendricksen Range in Parleys Canyon as Self-Defense suggested. Iâ€™ve talked with most of the Rangemasters at the various ranges along the Wasatch Front over the past few years when trying to set up IDPA shooting events, and Alan Thompson is probably the easiest to work with.
I also think Hendricksen Rangeâ€™s location and facilities would work well for this. Itâ€™s cooler than in the valley and we could set up the BBQ in the shade under the roof of the covered firing line on the 25-yard range. That would probably work better than using the patio, as thereâ€™s no shade there.
Weâ€™d have to check with Alan to see when the range is available for reservation. We (Bob Carr and I) have it reserved for the first Saturday of each month for IDPA matches and Polite Society events. I know the IPSC guys and cowboys use this range as well as the bulls-eye pistol shooters. So, weâ€™d have to work around those schedules in order to reserve the range. Weâ€™d also probably need to figure on about a month lead time in order to get on the schedule.
If we do have a BBQ there, Iâ€™d be willing to set up some IDPA stages we could shoot, just for fun. As these would be set up, and have firing points downrange of the covered firing line. It would leave the firing line free for setting up the cooking and serving facilities.
