Bonfire, Potluck, and shoot some skeet.

  • Nov 9, 2013 · 3:00 PM
  • This location is no longer available

A lot of people have been asking me to do this meetup. In the past for other meetup groups I have done the bonfire, potluck with live bands, bouncy house or fishing. This time I thought I would give people a chance who have never shot skeet the chance to experience it. I have a farm in Doswell that will pretty much facilitate most any event. In the past attendance has been in the area of[masked] people with other meetup groups attending. I really do not want this one to be that big. I will need people who are willing to help with running the event. I'll need people who can show others where to go and what to do. The potlucks and bonfires have always been a hit. The skeet shoot is something different. For that reason I'm looking for some people to help that have some experience with firearms. I will be able to provide everything needed for this. I will also be able to provide instructions and training for new people to this. Because of the expense in doing this I may have to charge a small fee of $1 per toss to cover expense of shells and skeet. If you have your own shotgun, shells and skeet. Come and shoot for free. Since this is a skeet shoot I will have to allow no consumption of alcohol till after 6:30pm. At that time sheet shoot will be finished and we can eat, drink and be merry around the bonfire. Children are welcome under strict supervision. Parents and guardians are advise to keep children under supervision even after the skeet shoot because of the lake on the property.

I will be adding information to this page all the way to the day of the event. I am really interested in hearing your thoughts and suggestions. Feel free to contact me anytime here or by email. I'm counting on people in JDFS who asked me to do this help with set up and the assistance of others.

Contact numbers.  Office[masked]

ETA from Virginia Center Commons Mall is 17 min's.

 

 Sometimes some gps's will not find the location.  Traveling I-95 north.  Take exit 98.  Travel Rt 30 east[exit to the right].   When you get to the rail road tracks at Kings Dominion continue 3.5 miles.  Drive way will be on the left with a sign that say's "Meetup  Here".  Look for the smiley face balloon on the mailbox next to the drive.  Continue up the drive till you see us all and find a place to park.  I will keep phones on me if you need help feel free to call.

Things to bring:  Chairs, picnic mat if you wish to sit on the ground. A potluck dish.  Your favorite drink. Marshmellows or what ever you would like to cook on the fire.   Maybe a flashlight. Your smiling face.

 

High Heels not recommended.  Dress for the outdoors.

    Sorry I was not able to get online sooner. I think the bonfire was too much for my computer to handle and it crashed last night. So I had to break out my back up laptop to get on. It was my pleasure to have all of you come out and enjoy the farm. It always makes me happy to see everyone enjoy themselves. Stay in touch, and let me know what idea's you all may have for next time.

      Hey Pam. Yea. Read Diane's message...lol Were going to be doing some setup and getting the leafs away from the bonfire area and roping off the skeet area, sitting some lights and table. Some are coming over today around 1pm. And may plan to hang out till the next day. Others are coming Saturday around noon. Some people wanted to get in some early shooting also. Give me a call on the above office number if you need to chat.

      Hey Bubba. Yes. It is a lot of fun. The only reason I don't do this more is cause its so much work...lol Some of the things I think we may need is Grilling items, desserts, or maybe more drinks. But I really don't know until people start coming in. Looks like there will be around 80 people here.

      that's a great idea Pam. If you have it in a crock pot we can keep it hot and plugged in.

    I think it may help if we write by our names or here what we plan to bring for the pot luck. I have plenty of plates forks, spoons cups. What we do not want to happen is we all end up eating 40 bags of chips for dinner. So if You have a idea let us know. Some idea would be ice, drinks, desserts, main course, or side dishes.

    If some people could bring extra chairs that would help. I am sure there will be some people who don't have them and I only have a few extra's here.

    A few questions have been asked about skeet. I would have to say it is as fun to watch people do as it is to do it. Not many people will ever get the chance to experience this. The bonfire will start right at 3pm. Everyone is encouraged to bring hotdogs or marshmallows to cook on the fire. This is a true bonfire. Not a camp fire.

    I had planned to put my address on this page a few days before the event. I can put it sooner if everyone thinks it needs to be here. I wanted to add pictures and edit the main content. But I do not see how to do that here. I have contacted a couple people who seem to post a lot here. But, so far no one has responded to me back. I think I need to be assigned more access right to "organize events"

      Hey Lee, post your address when you're ready tho I know some like to know exactly where they are going. lol About editing your event and adding photos, you should be able to make changes by selecting the title of the event since you are the author. If you have limited editing access, you may have to email one of the host to add/update the details section but you should be able to do it yourself. Let me know if you need more help. :)

      Great Mark. I'm looking for a few more experienced people. If there are not more here I will recruit a few of my friends to come over and assist. I'm setup for about 300 shots right now with skeets and shells. I even plan to have a 20ga for people who do not want to use a 12ga. Or if not the 20ga I'm sure my daughter will not mind them using her 410ga.
