9:00 am – 9:30 am – Mandatory Range Safety Meeting – Chad Heiser

This meeting is required attendance for all people who wish to go to the range for the day.  We will cover basic range safety and the rules for the day.

9:30 am – 10:00 am – Break

Take a break and gather your equipment to head out to the range.  Bring food and drink you would like for lunch as there are no food services at the range.  Chairs would also be advisable.

10:00 am – 10:30 am – Travel to the range

We will caravan out to the range together.  We will be heading to Pickle Butte Shooting Range/George Nourse Range at 16802 Nash Road, Nampa, ID 83686.  This is a public range open to anyone.  We will do our best to keep the group together once we arrive at the range.

10:30 pm – 4:00 pm – Shooting

This is intended to be a fun outing for both experienced and inexperienced/novice shooters.  Please bring your own firearms and ammunition to be used at the range.  If you do not have you’re your own forearms, but would like to participate, contact me and we can discuss options.  I will provide some targets and stands, but if you have some you would like to bring and use/share that would be extremely helpful as well.  I will have some additional help to provide individualized shooting instruction for anyone who would like.  Obviously, firearms can be dangerous, and we want everyone to be safe, so we will implement safety rules and instructions, but this event is a participate at your own risk event.

4:00 pm – 11:00 pm – Elks Lodge Happy Hour and Dinner

The Caldwell Elks Lodge has agreed to host our group for dinner and no host cocktails (thanks to Dave Schonhardt for being an Elks Lodge member).  Dinner will be at 6:00 pm, but our cocktail bar opens at 4:00 pm, so we can arrive any time after that.  We will have our own bartender and bar area in the dining hall.  If you have a special alcohol request, let me know so our bar can stock it.  They will have all the normal alcohol and soft drink choices available.  The dinner choices are prime rib or salmon, with all the fixings.  The fee for dinner is $40 per person and includes the hall rental, our own private bar area and all the necessary items to host a group our size. If you wish to attend, please purchase your dinner ahead of time through the rally website.  I will have a list of attendees and their dinner choices that I will confirm with everyone in person at the rally on arrival day.  The Caldwell lodge is large and can accommodate our entire group.  The Caldwell Elks Lodge is located at 1015 N Kimball Ave, Caldwell, ID 83605.

9:00 am – 9:45 am – Seminar – Firearms Cleaning and Maintenance – Chad Heiser

I will provide instruction on the proper cleaning and maintenance of your firearms after spending the previous day at the range.  Individuals are encouraged to bring their own firearms and cleaning kits to the seminar to participate.

This day is set aside for the wine tour.  The tours are still being worked out between myself and the tour company.  Details to follow.

The painting party will be led by a local artist and is open to anyone willing to have a good time.  No artistic talent is necessary.  This will be the sixth year we have offered the art project and it has gained popularity each time.  The artist will provide all the materials necessary, all you need to do is show up and have fun.  There is a $20.00 fee payable to the artist to cover the materials and her time.  The artist will guide participants through the process of creating a personalized painting.

3:00 pm – 5:00 pm – Free Time

5:00 pm – 6:30 pm – Potluck Dinner

Everyone is encouraged to bring a dish to share with the group.  The WCR potluck dinner is wide open and meant to be a fun gathering (much like our rally in general).  I do not assign out specific dishes nor types of dishes to anyone.  Whatever you wish to bring, and share will be gladly accepted.  I know there are a lot of good cooks out there and I look forward to sampling your creations.  We will have further discussions about this our first night at the park as a group.
