Of course I did! :twisted: :lol: There wasn't much to capture anyway... just a bunch of guys shooting. Like I said, we didn't do any wheeling. Other than running into Barstow Saturday morning for breakfast and supplies, we spent the entire weekend at the camp/range.

Nothin' wrong with that! Sounds like ya had a good time. That's usually what I'll do when I go to the river. Just hang around camp, go shooting back in the washes and fishing in the lake. Good times. I actually need to do some more exploring with the Jeep around there.

x2 - I think Calico is a more interesting area than Hungry Valley, with a wider variety of trails and alot of beautiful scenery....not to mention great chocolate shakes across the 15 freeway.... :mrgreen:

Are people allowed to camp in the mines and caves around Calico? If so, i wanna camp out in that mine thing that some of us climbed into at midnight during Calico Cleanup last year. 8-)

2009 OAUSA SpringFest Event (March 27-29)

So I noticed there's a date attached here. Is this gonna be offical? If so it works for me! We're going to be in Florida the second week of March.

John I think the board chose a date for SpringFest and you started this thread under the Springfest banner but correct me if I'm wrong Ollie, there has been no official choice of the place yet? I would love to do it at Calico, it's a great all around spot for all ability levels and very close to a major freeway. We really should start planning for this now, maybe a Poll with suggested areas for SpringFest would be a good start?

Spot on Scott... No official location has been designated yet. The dates are locked in for all of this years events though. One thing to remember is that Calico Clean-Up is happening on President's Day weekend. The clean-up is just starting it's planning stages and Mark Watkins contacted me last week. It's taking on a bit of a different flavor this year. The reason I say that is some people may not want to go to the sameplace twice in such a short time period. I'm still up for it, I am just keeping everyone informed.

A poll is a good idea.

As far as I know, you can camp and shoot almost anywhere you want out there.

How about a place with big trees where you can feel the Spring time? Is there a place like that around here with good trails and group camping that might be a little different than Big Bear and Summerfest?
