Default Vintagers 2015

i have not been to a vintagers since the first couple years at Pintail Point, we normally have a conflict that time of year. But since it was back fairly close- and we might be free, I was thinking about maybe planning to go this year,

but - looking at the Vintager's site - there is no 2015 info

Dover Furnace has something called "North American Shotgun Classic" on that weekend

did the event run its course and die a natural death, now that there are so many competing double gun events?

As far as I know the Vintage Cup is the last weekend of September at Dover Furnace. Unless that has changed?

on the Dover Furnace calendar

Sept 2014 said Vintagers

Sept 2015 says "North American Shotgun Classic"


maybe its just a place holder

Unfortunately, a faint shadow of what it once was at Millbrook and Pintail Pt.!! JMHO but I believe RP needs to join forces with The Game Fair at Sandanona and create one big-arrrrs, mid-September blast.

All we really want is to bring back the crowds, buzz & excitement of years past that quite honestly have all but vanished from this event. Like apple pie and a sharp cheddar, there simply has to be an autumn double gun get together somewhere in the NY/New England vicinity. Just sayin'.

I heard somewhere that RP was toying with the thought of selling "The Vintage Order of Edwardian Shooters". True or false?

Dean, I also heard that he offered to sell it. At an earth shattering price I may add.

So perhaps the rumors are true? The 2015 VC will be held at Highclere Castle? Trappers on loan from the cast of Downton Abbey? Sure hope you can get there for Thursday OP.....or else!!!

The Vintagers website is the last place anyone should look for information on the current Vintage Cup event. Ray usually posts information on his site about a month before the event. Look elsewhere. By the way, the "Vintage Cup for Sale" information is about seven years old.
