    Heyboy,

    Any fees and are us "outsiders" welcome or should we be sponsored by a club member? Went to the site and it looks like fun. Got a competition class for us deaf, dumb and half blind sexagenarians & septuagenarians? Would love to come up.

    Sorry, it’s $8 the first round (20 shots) and $4 to re-enter.
    As far as a different class no, but rest assured you will be competing with your peers!!

    Oh and everyone is welcome at The Pines, we try not to let the shooting get in the way of the fun. There’s no large pot to win or giant trophy, it’s that we have fun.

    I've contacted a few of my buds to see if they are in for the trip. I bet 3 or 4 of us will show up from down south. Half of the military rifles will be US and half from other countries. all of 'em are WWll vintage.

    I live about 30 miles north of Pittsburgh. Could you post some sort of map and dates?
    Sounds like a lot of fun. I have a bunch of military rifles and have been shooting cast
    bullets for almost 50 years. Thanks for any information.

    There’s a google map and our calendar of events on the website I posted in the beginning of the thread. You’d have to come across interstate 80 East then Williamsport and farther north to Mansfield. After that I would have to get more explicit directions. It’s back in the of the beaten path. A hidden gem so to speak. I’ll see about putting directions on our website. I have to talk to the guy who runs our site.
