Going Camping This Weekend

Postby jbullard1 » Wed Mar 18, 2009 4:21 pm

I belong to a group that promotes the old way of life" The Hatchie Run Longrifles" we shoot flintlock & caplock rifles and smoothbores; no modern inlines. we only shoot roundballs and burn blackpowder, and camp, mostly, by primitive standards
Our spring event is this weekend at Our campground in Faulkner Ms
If you are in the area please feel free to stop by and see the "Crazy Old Folks" living in a by gone era.
This is also a great outing for scouts and similar groups.
We build fires with flint and steel, throw tomahawks and knives and shoot the old guns.
We also have a modern camping area for those so inclined

We will also be having an event in June and October if anyone or scout group is interested in attending. We are always open to visitors

Here are a couple of views of our October and January events

Greg
We have a more modern event in June It's our annual picnic
I think a scout group would like it
I will bring it up at the meeting and get back to you.
We have an area where you could camp as a separate group
I even have a little 32 caliber caplock rifle for the kids to shoot
Maybe you could plan a trip and visit us
I'll find out for sure if you are interested and let you know :2TU:
