Appalatchian Benifit meat shoot, North Alabama any interest?
« on: November 01, 2012, 07:34:41 AM »

 I thought I would run this by the good folks on here.

 My wife is the secretary of a committee to benefit a brave 6year old young man with brain cancer.

  I thought there may be some interest in a good old fashioned meat shoot.

  I was thinking Side Lock muzzleloading rifles off hand at 40 yards. We would shoot 5 or 10 shots off hand.  There would be several strings of shots with elimination and a final single target shoot, much like seen in the movie Sgt. York.

 We may have horseshoes, tomahawk throws and living history camping.  We want this to be a good time for a good cause.

 This is just a consideration at present.  Please reply if you have any interest or suggestions.

Get in touch with the Fort Mims Restoration association. A lot of those folks come down from North Al.
