    Friends! The 21st annual Nevada Cast Bullet Shoot is scheduled to take place May 29, 30 and 31 at the Humboldt County Shooting Park just north of Winnemucca. Please consider this announcement an invitation to past shooters and especially new shooters to attend. While the main reason we get together each year is to spend some quality time with old and new shooting friends, we also hold competition over a number of events as follows:

    100 yard any sight group and score
    50 yard iron sight group and score
    25 yard iron sight handgun (10” or less barrel) group and score
    Long range iron sight (400 yards non-prone field position)
    25 yard Companion Guns-25 yards score iron sight handgun and rifle—same box of ammo
    Other games as offered up by attendees such as rifle and pistol team stake shoots, timed fire practical rifle and/or handgun, etc.

    Group completion is a test of the bullet caster/loader and done any position without rest attached to firearm.
    Score competition is a test of the shooter and is done off hand without sling.
    Competitors can shoot/submit only one target per firearm, but additional targets can be entered with other qualifying guns. There will be plenty of guns and ammunition to borrow in case you don’t have an appropriate firearm—or just want to try something else out.

    In addition to lots of shooting on the 30th and 31st, there will be a welcoming lunch and “Rools Committee” dinner on the 29th, a pot luck dinner on the 30th and a closeout/awards dinner on the 31st. There will be a gear exchange drawing during the awards dinner—each participant please bring two items to place on the awards table—with each participant getting two random choices to select from the table.

    Please watch for updates as to lunch/dinner locations and and don’t hesitate to ask for additional information.

    To one and all, this event is ALMOST more fun than you should be allowed to have. The competitions are almost a distraction to the get-together with old and new friends. Nevertheless, there will be four trophies to be won this year from figured maple plaques. The newest will be a trophy for the 400 yard iron sights shoot. The others will be for the ladies 100 yard high score with any sight shoot, the mens 50 yard best group with iron sights, and the practical pistol shoot instead of the practical rifle shoot. We all have plenty of extra ammunition for visitors to try new things.
    For newcomers, there are plenty of rooms in the tourist "mecca" of Winnemucca but if you just want to dip your toe in for a day on Saturday without much expense, there is fine camping nearby at the BLM campground in Water Canyon just across the valley from the range.

    Some of us are already making reservations at Scott's Shady Court in Winnemucca. It is an older motel but is quiet, off the main drag, shade trees, and has a pool with an added benefit being able to back your rig up to the door to unload your gear.

    The Governor is opening restaurants in Nevada this weekend. The motel where many of us stay (Scott's Shady Court) is holding our reservations so it looks like all is on for the event including the Friday lunch at the Griddle, the Rooz meeting somewhere, and the Sunday banquet. It appears that Mormon crickets (giant Mormon crickets, a 3" katydid that is seriously ugly so search under Mormon cricket to see videos) are already swarming in the millions in some areas. There is currently a discussion of a cricket shoot for the delight and amusement of all with anything that shoots from BB guns to 50 BMG's.

    Just love Nevada weather. It snowed around Winnemucca this morning and by NCBS, the daytime temperatures will be around 90 if the forecast is correct. I am so ready!
