Who's Going To Be There:

Although next October seems like a long way off, it's time to start making your plans now to attend the 2nd. Annual Gun Blogger rendezvous.

Right off the top, though, I want to clear up a misconception about the Rendezvous. You don't have to be a Gun Blogger, or even a Blogger, for that matter, to attend. If you are a shooting sports enthusiast (gun nut?), if you READ gun blogs or Mil Blogs, or even if you've just wanted to ask for Og's autograph, or to see if JimmyB likes bacon as much as he says, here's your chance!

The Rendezvous is small, informal, and lots of fun. The best part is getting to meet and visit with a really interesting and diverse bunch of folks with a common love and enjoyment of shooting sports and firearms.

Who might you meet there? Here's a partial list of some of the folks planning to attend. If you are planning on attending, please leave a comment and I'll get you added to the list.

Fodder and the Commandress from
Ride Fast & Shoot Straight


Say Uncle

JimmyB and Mrs JimmyB from
The Conservative UAW Guy

KeeWee of
KeeWee's Corner

LouG from
Mad Gun

US Citizen from
Traction Control

Chris & Mel Byrne of
The Anarchangel

Og, the

Kevin of the
Smallest Minority

Dave Durringer from
World Examiner

Mr. Completely of

"If I Can Make It I'll be There!" List:

Joe Huffman of
The View from N. Central Idaho

Retired Geezer AKA 'Doc Peabody' &
Mrs. Geezer from
Blog Idaho

This is just the first listing and there will be more added as I get word. Joe Huffman of The View from N. Central Idaho has been pretty busy putting on the Boomershoot event, but once the gunsmoke, dust and anvils settle and the fireballs dissipate, I suspect I'll be hearing from him. I've also been in communication with a number of other bloggers who are hoping to make it to the Rendezvous, too. If you are going to try to make it, but aren't sure, let me know and I'll put you on the "If I Can Make It I'll be There!" list.

Hope YOU can be there, too!!

More News

I've been working away lining things up for the Gun Blogger Rendezvous coming up in early October, and I've got some good news. It looks like we will have a couple of new big name sponsors on board this year. I haven't gotten final confirmation, but over the phone it sounds like they are going to sponsor. I won't give out the names until it's confirmed, but one of the companies likes the color blue a lot, but don't "press" me for any more hints!! (A master of subtlety, that's me!).

I talked to one of the head cowboy action shooting honcho's in Reno a day or so ago, and on Sunday, October 14th there will be a full cowboy action match at the Pyramid valley range. He is going to check to see if they could have one of the stages set up on Saturday, the day before, and have a few of their club members there to give us a demo of cowboy action shooting, and also let us all shoot a stage or so to see what it's all about. This would be in addition to our regular Saturday range sessions! It might just be worth the trip to see Rivrdog in a cowboy hat!!

If you are planning on attending the Rendezvous, you should contact the Circus Circus and get your room reservations in fairly soon. Don't wait until the very last minute!!

I will have the information on how to register for the Rendezvous itself posted soon.
