7th annual Turkey Shoot & Chili Cook-Off!
Sunday, November 13
Redneck Paradise! That's what this weekend was here at the ranch! Complete with a Shotgun Weddin! Battalion Motorcycle Club was here sponsoring the Turkey Shoot, and dang if we didn't have some real marksmen on the target range! Brett Baker won the Turkey Shoot competition, and Kevin Lively took 1st place for both best Chili and best presentation! Congratulations to you both! Everyone's buddy, "Mooch" took honorable mention in the Chili competition! Between the two competition, the ranch hosted a honest to goodness shotgun style weddin! The bride rode in on her white mare, to greet her waiting groom! I guess ya just had to be there, and there's pic's to prove it! Friday and Saturday night found us gathered around the fire, with warm libations served from the camp kettle! Of course, being Veteran's Day, we had to recognize our active or retired military present at the fire. Each one told us stories of their service to our country and were thanked for their service, especially during the time of Don't Ask Don't Tell. After we retired our storm damaged flag to the fire as presribed by tradition, and everyone broke into a spontaneous round of our National Anthem. It was a night to remember! Saturday, Marty from Battalion built his version of burning man in our fire pit, to the amazement of the crowd! All I can say is, what a weekend! Thanks to everyone who competed in the Chili Cookoff! Your Chili's were all deserving of 1st place!
