    Okay, Slingshot lovers.

    I had a great meeting with Nick, the owner of Belle Ridge Retreat/RV in Monterey, Tn. He has agreed that slingshots are good and right! So we have a place for a Camporee/Tournament on the weekend of June 26th. Monterey is about 15 minutes away from Cookeville, which has many amenities.

    Here is the link to the campground. More details as we sort them out.

    Wooooooooooo!

      OMG! Another reason to be depressed about being Poor! :banghead: I have not looked at the details yet as I am Drinking, But I think everyone should give MP a BIG HELL YEAH!!!! for reaching out to an establishment like this and getting a very positive response An example we need to follow. The Official links have done nothing for me in Texas.

      Dog friendly, Yes.

      As far as the pricing you can join a campsite as a guest for $3/day. There is plenty of room.

      If we get enough people this time we couod book a large group in 2020 fall or 2022...$99/day and no limit on guests.

      T28 has spotty wifi but it is more secluded and next to the swimming hole with an outdoor shower.

      Very generous, @Mr. Muz.

      I am uncertai to what we will be doing.

      But a fee prizes and an exchange table are likely.

      Soon Inwill make a list of possible events and take a poll. And a list of items needed. And begin the process of collecting them. All credit to those that provide them is a must for me.

      I understand. May be we can have a fall gathering as well. Or next year I pick a better date. I do want to interfere with any slingshot events...we need to space them out for maximum attendance.

      I hope to attend ECST and meet all the fine people up there.

      Anybody saw Buckskin Dave?

      PS- may be we can scrounge some morrels and take some pigeons up in your stretch of woods sometime.

      Friends and neighbors and all you other slingers,

      We are still meeting on June 26th-28th in Monterey, TN.


      So if you feel comfortable with showing up you message me her or email me for more details.

      We WILL BE social distancing and whatever guidelines Belle Ridge Retreat/RV Campgrounds asks if us, please. BYOS- bring your own sanitizer is in effect, but I know a supplier of 70% rubbing alcohol...me. In spray bottles.


      Again there is a spring fed swimming pond for the hot part of the day and atv trails. A small cave and magnificent view are just good people im this small town. Cookeville and hotels are just 15 minutes away.

      Thanks for consideration.

      June 26th-28th and it is BYOS event. Bring your own slingshot.

      I checked and no cabins available so if I were to make it and stay at a hotel somewhere else how,where and when can I get in there? Fees? Something for a drawing? That kind of stuff.

      You could come when you're ready and day use fees are $3 if you are visiting campers.

      We are.doing a trade table and freebies table.

      My rough estimate for attendance is 23 shooters plus their friends/family with 6 more possible plus their friends/family.

      This sounds like it’s going to be very much fun. I am so jealous of the people that will go since I can’t attend because of some previous family commitments. I hope you guys take many pictures and do a recap so the rest of us can live vicariously through you.
