Howdy,
The Blue River Regulators "Ruckus at Raccoon Forks" annual week-end shoot is on for September 12-13.  Nebraska has a Pro-Open Governor and we expect to be a go for the shoot in September.  Our range meets all requirements for an open-air event so unless thing go crazy we think it will happen.  The registration is on the NCOWS website. Here is a link to all the information you will need http://ncows.com/posses/brr/Ruckus2020Registration.pdf

Hey Yuma,
Just making sure I read this correctly; Friday is practice only, there is no Long Range match this year, correct?

I do have to chuckle, go to hotels.com, no rooms available in area. Did go to maps application on phone, did see what lodging was available in area. Looks like sleeping in my van.

I wonder if folks were anticipating a home football game that weekend and reserved motels? With no game that weekend, I can't imagine there being any issues getting motel reservations.  ::)

I will be setting up a "long range" event this year for entertainment purposes only,  no Cadillac Grand Prize this year. You will still get a chance to demonstrate your skills Sir!

B.N.S.
It is far better to remain silent, and be thought a fool, than to speak and remove all doubt!

No, the local establishments not affiliated with hotels.com.
There is a B&B near by, and a Motel in Wahoo. Other than that, Fremont or Lincoln outside of Hotels.com parameters to include. No home game at Nebraska that weekend.
Iowa is season ticket holders only, no non conference games, sounds like 1st home game, only 7000 spectators. Nine years later, overlook the fact, Nebraska is Big10.

::) "entertainment purposes only"? Wouldn't that include the whole match?  ;D The most "Entertaining" match I remember is when you and I tied for second in the long range there and had the shoot off. I really enjoyed that!

. Is football still on at Nebraska?
I think Iowa is season ticket holders only.
I think that would include the whole stadium except maybe the student and visitor's sections. The last I saw the season is still on but is only conference games

Bryan,
You will need to register ahead of time for meal planning, posse assignment and category placement. However, if you wish to pay on arrival that would be okay. Be sure to mark that on your registration.

Dropped in mail this AM.
Confused by last post, finally realized, previous post wasn’t for me.
Still laughing though, no Hotels.com affiliated in area, yet receive a daily post to search again.
Pine Crest Farms B&B, & Heritage Inn in Wahoo, not affiliated. I have a choice, sleep in van or Heritage Inn. Will do both, drive on Friday, check in & sleep in van Friday, shoot Saturday, then check into Heritage Inn Saturday after shoot.
Made my reservations for 9/12 tonight.
If it comes down to it, can sleep in van both nights, & give up reservations if necessary.
BTW; Single queen, 2nd floor.

This “SOF”, (Stupid Old Fool), signed up as senior 2x gun smokeless shootists, if insufficient participants in my category, can drop senior, or smokeless, shootists would be hardest for me to drop. Will have ammo on hand for shift.

Looking at big picture. Understand, I am an Hospital Employee/Volunteer! I will wear a face mask & face shield at match! Doing so, I have survived being front line for 4 months now. I will wear them to protect others. I want to attend, but don’t need to. I have been exposed at least 4x times & survived! Coming from 25th hottest county in Iowa, 2x more positives per capita over Saunders County Nebraska. I understand, this makes me a risk to others, anyone objects to me attending, I will withdraw. In all honesty, I feel safer in hospital environment than outside.
I am not trying to derail event! Approach safely!
Working on options with face shield, current modern, with no hat. 2x shields arriving next week. Want to wear period hat & a face shield.

In case you are wondering where I am getting my data, it is from John Hopkins.

Mouse click on counties.
BTW; website fails on my IPhone.
One thing going for me, with students back on 8/24. Guessing Covid won’t start increasing until after shoot, but will keep an eye on it.
