A few of us camp. It is relaxing. I leave work Wed at noon and get to HH around 6:30. I stay W, Th, F, nights and go home Sat afternoon. Get to shoot all day Th-F, and some on Sat. It certainly has become a favorite of mine.
If it would look like a lot of rain, I would probably stay in Vestal.

Gents, We are in need of a volunteer or two to set up the PGCA display at Ernie's. I have been doing this for a bunch of years and I am at a point that I would like to just show up and enjoy the weekend without having to worry about the display. As they say its time to pass the torch. New faces and new ideas are the future of the PGCA. I have everything that is needed. So if you have an interest in increasing your involvement in the PGCA please send me a PM and we can work out the details.

You're right Dave, we need some new interest. We need some new volunteers - it's not hard at all either, heck if enough guys pitch in to help out nobody gets stuck in the booth for more than a few hours each day. There's really not much to it. Just remember, you are the face of the PGCA and we like to make friends.

If any of you new volunteers need any advice or tips on manning the booth just contact Dave or me or Larry, or Josh or.... just ask.


(One of the benefits to being in the PGCA booth is that every once in a while somebody stops by with Uncle Bill's or Grampy's old Parker to ask about it and get informed.)

Bringing this to the top. We have received no replies for volunteers. This is unfortunate as there will be no PGCA display unless we can find willing members to commit for the good of the group.

Thanks very much Harold!

But you'll need help - OK, who else would be willing to pitch in some fun hours in the PGCA booth "for the good of the order"?

Thank you very much Harold. Let's see if we can find someone to head this up.
