Mark you calendar, its that time of year again for one of our most fun events, the black powder shoot. We will be at CCSC starting at 6pm for sign ups, warm ups and last minute sighting in. In the case of Ken Johnson it will be time to figure out how his gun shoots and what all the pieces and parts are for. Brian Patterson is the honcho. We will shoot 5 shots free hand at 50 yards, open sights, no scopes (just like the NV hunt requirements). The club will provide all the supplies for .50 cal guns (sorry if yours is another caliber bring your own gear). Don’t worry if you don’t have a gun the past few years winners have all borrowed a gun from one of the guys. We should be done shooting by noon. Cost is $25 with money given to Lewis Class. Club will also provide coffee and breakfast donuts. This is a Marksman of the year event

Neil Dille is putting together a fishing trip in the Ruby Mountains for later this summer. Member Danny Riddle and Hidden Lake Outfitters will be the guide, it will be the last week of July 25-28. Danny will be packing the group into the Ruby Mtn Wilderness on mules to some high alpine lakes to do some fishing. The area includes Farve Lake, Liberty Lake and the Dollar Lakes. If you wish to come early or stay late and fish the nearby Ruby Marsh that is ok. The cost is $750.00 per person for three days on mules and fishing, all meals and tents are included just bring your float tube, sleeping bag and personal gear. Danny has extra tubes and access to small boats if you wish to fish the Ruby Marsh either before or after the back trip. Lots more information will be coming, we would really like to get some interest in this trip. Due to Forest Service permits the maximum group size is 10. For more information contact Neil at 234-7215
July 1, 2013 is the final deadline to have your OHV registered in the state of NV. The law went into effect July 1, 2012 but all this year was a grace period. Tickets will be issued after July 1, 2013. Go to NDOW website NOT the DMV site. Down load the forms, fill them out, take your machine to an OHV dealer or police office to verify the serial number (no cost when I did mine). Get the form notarized and send in your $20 fee. DMV will then mail out the sticker to be attached to your OHV. The sticker is pretty big and it is required to be located on the rear or left side of the OHV, you may have to make a custom bracket or mounting plate to attach the sticker to your OHV, I did.
Sounds like a good time, too bad my schedule won’t allow me to take advantage of this trip.
