Hello folks,

My apologies for being away for so long and putting a spanner in everyone's dreams of shooting away on 18th. December. Unfortunately, my grandfather passed away and I had to be away in Madhya Pradesh. Goes without saying that it would not have been prudent for everyone to shoot on my land in my absence.

Since I'm now back and rearing to go, could we have suggestions on probable dates when everyone would like to meet up. I would be contacting everyone on the list individually tomorrow onward, but it would be best to discuss the date on the forum itself in order for everyone to opinionate.

With Diwali holidays approaching would any of the Gujarat guys be interested in meeting up for a day out shooting? Airguns, rifles anything.......

Hi Katana,
> Congrats on conceptualizing an IFG meet in Gujarat :D
> Registration, Logistics, Accomodation, Catering, Targets / Range etc. need to be taken care of...
> Would suggest that you form a core team & then plan & allocate responsibilities for each of above - works well...
> Am just sharing this as we here in Mumbai have been successfully holding such meets at Lonavala for the past 3 years (Lonavala is an 11/2 hour drive from Mumbai city....
> The site for the meet is courtesy "Japaloupe" a riding school spread over 24 acres of wooded land....
> The main driving force is our own IFGian "Fantumfan" ....a virtual one man army who overseas registration / logistics / targets / competition / scoring / awards & what have you...
> Since it's a 'Day Affair' the need for accomodation does not arise...
> Ofcourse this is a contributory event as the proceeds take care of snacks, soft drinks, targets, lunch, awards etc.....
> The proceedings are as follows:
1. 15 days advance notice for confirming participation
2. On the day of the meet:
a) Registration > 8am to 9am
b) Snacks / Tea / Coffee 9am to 9.30am (Great opportunity for introductions / renewing old contacts / General banter etc.)
c) Setting up of targets > Ranging from 10 mtrs / 20mtrs / 40mtrs (BTW - This event/meet is for Air Arms only)
d) Monitoring entry for each category & appointing marshals for scoring & overseeing the proceedings...
e) Competition starts at 10.am...
f) 12pm collating results...
g) 1.00pm announcing winners followed by awards...
h) 1.30pm to 2.30pm lunch...
i) 3pm onwards 'Friendship Meet' - Participants exchange experiences with different types of air arms / ammo / springers, PCPs, Gas Rams, shooting techniques + plenty of humour thrown in + photo sessions etc. etc.
j) 4pm Tea & Snacks + more guft-gu.....
k) 5pm - Adios / Au Revoir / Hasta la Vista / Good Bye / Miltey Hain Yaar.....Till we meet again :D
> Finally from all IFGians of Maharashtra - We wish you 'All the Best' for a highly successful meet in Gujarat :D
:cheers:

Brihacharan,

Thank you very much for your wishes and your concern. However, my grandfather passed away in the winter of 2011 when we were planning a meet then.

As for your suggestions, I would gladly take them up but we are few in number (some of whom don't own guns but are more than welcome) and the idea of an competition is not really 'doable'. The reason to meet is just to catch up, trade stories, shoot a bit together and split by late afternoon. Tea is brewed on the field and snacks are brought in by whoever deems to be richer! Prizes for good shots are a handshake and a pat on the back.

Meanwhile, we'd love it if you could join us.

I have 2 confirmations till now: zombie and jashwantsinh. I think I could rope in pritampatel and avr, plus a couple of non-members. I suggest the word be sent to all gujarat guys who might want to join.

Tentatively I'd like to meet up on 9th or 10th of November.

Hi Katana,
> Any event "Well Begun" is "Well Done" :D
> Agree that this meet is all about "Connecting" with gun lovers....
> Believe me the enthusiasm & energy when you guys meet will "Overflow"...
> Bear with me when I say that 'if chores are divided' the levels of participation will reach great heights!!!!
> Many thanks for your kind invitation...will certainly make an attempt to be present :D
> Best wishes... :cheers:

Some of the Ahmedabad off roading guys are planning a trip to the same venue on 14th. Might have a camp/ cook out scene. Anybody want to join in, do let me know.
