Working on planning and things are rocking along. Hope everyone has hotel reservations, hall of fame tickets and is working on a list of guns to bring.

This will be the 16th annual Parker-Smith Challenge and, in honor of that milestone, the challenge pins will be purple like a 16 gauge shell. Here is the proof

Why go to the Southern if you only plan to shoot 1 gauge? There is an opportunity to shoot 8 different gauges...shoot them all ,.. and then some more!

I'm only shooting 16's but I'll have 6 or 7 guns with me.

I mentioned this on another thread, but figured it may be better placed here. I am a newbie to the Southern. One of my concerns is the number of guns I want to bring versus the logistics of getting guns from the car, toting heavy boxes of guns around the grounds, etc. Does anyone have any good advice regarding parking, getting around whilst toting too many guns, and generally making the most of the southern. Also, shooting... how to get some shooting in would be nice. I look forward to meeting many of you. Any help you can give will be welcome.

Kindest regards,
Dean

I strongly recommend you rent a cart or bring one if you've got it.
Good luck,
Buddy

Yes, yes, and yes ! Rent or bring a cart especially if you are going to be shooting a lot of events etc as compared to just hanging out in the tents.

Best thing is to arrive early and park down near the Parker tent.

I hope you can bring your new 20 gauge lifter as our display theme is 20 gauges
