Is February 28th better for anybody else?  We don't need a big turnout but I'd like to accommodate as many people as possible.

OK - let's shoot for Feb 28th (no pun intended).  That will work out better for me and it sounds like at least 3-4 of us can make it.

Finalizing the date and times for the fun shoot/scouting expedition.  What do you guys think about 9am-1pm?  More time, less time? Earlier/later?  I'm not a huge morning person but could get there a bit earlier if it's the consensus of the group.  I'd just rather not freeze when we can have some sun instead :-)

Let's split the difference and go for 9:30am to approximately 1:30/2pm.  I checked the 5 day forecast for Pine Valley and it said 56, 55, 53, 50 and 48 for the highs so it's going to be chilly.  Rich, do you find that to be an accurate forecast based on experience?  Descanso has a similar trend for the next 5 days, just 2-3 degrees warmer.

Hey Victor.  The venue is called Pine Valley Bible Conference Center.  It's a rural retreat/camp out in Pine Valley, about 35-40 min east of San Diego on the 8 fwy.  I just emailed the administrator out there to confirm Sunday, February 28th from 9:30am - 2pm.  

As far as what to bring, I would say anything that could assist in terms of targets, rests, bags etc.  It's not a shooting facility, it's a paintball field - so they have built-in tire berms, some structures etc but no bench rest areas per se.

My goal for the shoot is to hang out and have fun above all else, but to also vet the area as a possible fun shoot/FT venue.  It's definitely on the rougher side in terms of facilities i.e. a river bed vs. a paved shooting range but I think it could be a lot of fun and challenging to shoot at.  The camp admins seemed to have no issue whatsoever with shooting there and if anything the condition of the paintball field and staging area should only improve.

The daily usage fee is $12 which is not ideal but frankly at this point I'll pay it if it means I can go shoot for 4-5 hours without being hassled by neighbors or over-zealous rangemasters :-)

The only 'rules' per se outside of obvious safety stuff is no swearing, no drinking and no smoking (in keeping with the general camp rules).  Other than that we will be left to our own devices.  I understand target shooting and swearing may go hand in hand for some people so just try to do it on the inside - lol.

Here is a link to the venue location:

Cool!  It will be great to reconnect with everybody.  As for the squirrels, I didn't get any clearance regarding hunting....were you talking about another area?  They might go for that down the road but I didn't want to press our like and mainly wanted it to be a shooting club/venue etc.

Yes,current high's are on mid 50's in Pine Valley.....but at end of month with clear weather it should be around 60+ by mid-morning...

Yesterday in Descanso it hit 68 F while sun was out contrary to forecast...then about 1 PM it got cloudy and temps dropped to 60 with wind kicking up...

9:30 ok by me..

I have a Gamo pop up target I can bring. Sounds like it should be fun.
