OFFICIAL SUPER SECRET ZOMBIE SHOOT 9.0 - APRIL 27-29
 
THE PEOPLE HAVE SPOKEN - APRIL 27-29 IS THE WEEKEND. IF YOU WANT TO START ON APRIL 20 AND GO THE WHOLE WEEK.....NOBODY IS GOING TO STOP YOU. - If you've been to the shoot before, you know the drill. For new people, this is a family orientated shooting ( & camping) event on BLM land in the Barstow area. I'll be editing posts below with additional information as I plagiarize it out of previous threads.

Calguns/CGSSA Zombie Shoot General Information.

This is a 100% family oriented event created by our members for our members, families and friends. It started out as a single day event, and has evolved into a camp and shoot event with much more than just shooting.

Step 1. Sign In.
Step 2. Grab your spot on the line.
Step 3. Claim your camping spot.

• All local and federal laws will be strictly followed
• All attendees must follow range commands and safety guidelines
• See range officers for more info before shooting at night
• Minors must be accompanied by a guardian at all times
• You must clean up all targets, trash, etc before you leave

Prohibited Items:
• No targets made from plastic, trash, glass or electronic equipment
• No wood with nails, screws or any metal objects in campfires
• No tannerite, explosives or fireworks of any kind
• No drugs of any kind
• No alcohol / intoxication on firing line
• No loaded firearms off firing line


What is OK to bring:

* EZ ups and Canopies, chairs, tables, ice chests, lots of water, drinks and ice, camping equipment, hats, sun screen.etc.

* Food for the Potluck ***we are going to need at least 5 propane BBQs.***

* Paper, biodegradable, organic and steel targets are OK.

* Bikes, Quads and all types of ATVs are welcome (please check you tag color).

* Generators and flood lights.

* LOTS OF Fire wood for the campfires, more food, drinks and popcorn for the zombie movie.

* Trash bags, rakes and containers to clean up the place after your shooting session.

Please let's be prepared to leave the shooting location clean and ready to be enjoyed by us and others in the near future. If you finish your shooting session please remove your targets and any material related to your shooting practice (trash, ammo boxes, spent cases,etc).
If you would like to "donate" your targets to a shooter next to you, the people receiving those targets will be responsible to remove them and clean the spot after the shoot.

Remember, preservation of our land is a must...!!!!!!


What is NOT OK to bring:

* Plastic, glass or any kind of electronic equipment to be used as targets.

* Wood with nails, screws or any kind of metal objects intended for the campfires.

* Tannerite or any kind of explosive targets and fireworks of any kind.

* No Drugs of any kind are allowed nor will be tolerated in our event.

* No steel core ammo will be allowed, as always, we will honor and respect our local and Federal ordinances ( do not confuse steel core with magnetic ammo).

* No Alcohol is permitted during our shooting sessions and BBQs, any kind of Alcoholic beverages must be kept at the camp ground and/or inside your vehicles at all times. This rule will be strictly enforced.




Useful tips and tricks

* If you're bringing a tent/canopy/shade/whatever, bring plenty of weights to hold it down as there are strong winds around noon to 3 PM every day. 2 years ago, several blew down range as well as a table or two blew over with guns going everywhere.

* Organize items list for those going to the store or coming up in the middle of the day or different days. Example would be ice, food or bug spray.



Location and directions:

The event site is located just 15 miles NE from Barstow. Final directions are posted a few days before the event, and taken down shortly after. It is a secret after all.

VOLUNTEERS NEEDED !
In an effort to make sure that the work load of organizing and running this doesn't fall on just one or two people (like it always has the last several years), we need to try and split up some duties this year. So if you would like to volunteer in some form or fashion, please post up or PM me.
Volunteer breakdown:

RSO & RANGE SAFETY: Need one manager/organizer type to organize the range RO's, set up the line, keep track of radios etc + as many range RO's as possible. It would be great if their were enough RO's to be able to do shifts, so they can do some shooting themselves.

CHECK IN ORGANIZER: Need somebody to handle the morning sign in.

POT LUCK ORGANIZER: Need one person to organize the pot luck, manage who's bringing what and what is needed, plus a couple or three people to cook, setup, clean up, etc.

PORTA POTTIES: I believe I already drunk signed up for this.

FRIDAY NIGHT GET TOGETHER - budget allowing, somebody to put this together ???

DONATION MANAGER - Somebody to handle the donation pot, which pays for the porta potties, and maybe do a walk up and down the line to ask everybody who crapped in one to pony up a few bucks.

.....I'm sure I'm missing something....please chime in.....

ZOMBIE MOVIE ORGANIZER ??

Sorry everyone, I will have to sit this one out, which means we will be down 1 RSO. My wife and I are expecting our first baby, a boy (thank goodness!), due date is March 29. I'll try to sneak out for the shoot later this fall, but April is just too soon.

Congratulations bumbum. You will be missed, but my wife and I will pour out a sip in your memory.

Either weekend works for us. I’ll go with the popular vote and help with anything I can. I’m not an RSO... I do cook and party though.

So. Cal. Meteor Showers close to those Dates
 
Just thought I would put this out there.

The following will be meteor showers that will be visible in the So Cal area and the dates they run:

Lyrids

Active: April 16 – April 26

Observing conditions for Lyrid meteors are best after moonset on the 22nd at 1:34 a.m., PDT. From a dark sky, the number of meteors should reach a maximum of 18 or more per hour by dawn.

Viewing conditions are Good.
Peak nights: April 21-22

Eta Aquariids

Active: April 19 – May 28

Bright moonlight will interfere throughout the 90 minutes before dawn (3:00 a.m.-4:30 a.m.) during which the Eta Aquariid meteors can be observed. Under ideal, dark conditions, the shower should produce about 20 meteors per hour.

Viewing conditions are Poor.
Peak nights: May 5-6

nubrun 01-29-2018 12:38 PM

April 20-22. And for the Friday night thing, isn't that usually hosted by the NRA site?

Can'thavenuthingood 01-29-2018 12:38 PM

Does not look like a very large crowd for April.

Famous last words....

Personally, I hope it's on for the 27-29. I'm in Maui for the alternative dates.

retired 01-29-2018 7:25 PM

I will be having a knee replacement on Jan. 31 (Two days:eek::eek:) and I don't think I'll be moving around full speed even by April for walking around that place. I'll opt for the fall one.
