Default Drakes Landing

As plans are getting made for the Southern don't forget to schedule a little shooting time at nearby Drakes Landing. Several of us will shoot all day Thursday some on Friday and Saturday as well. There's still plenty of time to enjoy the fine guns and vendors at Deep River as well as the Challenge.

Drakes has two 100 target courses so there is never a line. If the interest is there we can put together a small bore event and a hammer gun event as we have done in the past. IF you want to burn some powder this is the place to do it and the staff is absolutely wonderful.

Our pre Southern shoot has grown considerably over the last couple of years and it's due to the great targets and fine hospitality offered at Drakes.

Our group of 6 from Rochester is looking forward to Drakes---the parking lot gun show, great targets, nice people and great food. We stay in Apex (20 minutes)which has some very nice restaurants and very nice shopping for the non-shooting spouses. Craig

Harold we are staying at the same place. I have been loading shells for two days. I almost have enough 3/4oz 20's to go then on to the 16's.

Craig I enjoy the gun show as well and will have a few that are in need of a new home and some that are for drooling only

Who's up for a small bore event??? 20,28 &410. Anyone want to do just a 410 or 28 event??

David we will leave Wed am and should be there for refreshments Wed evening. Looking forward to it.

Where in Apex are y'all staying? My all time favorite Italian restaurant moved from Fuquay to Apex and staying there might be a better idea?

Rich- I think sticking to the 20 & 16 ga events will allow more people to play. JMHO

Sticking with 20 and up might not be a bad idea, the gun list was getting pretty long

Is the Italian place the one we ate at a couple of years ago and first hatched the idea for the Quail hunt at Morrison Pines?

Did you get a group rate?

Rick
Yes, that is the one. With it gone we had a hard time finding a good place to eat this fall.
