Our fall rendezvous is set to take place at Parchment Valley near Ripley, WV September 9th and 10th.   This is a new location for the fall shoot and we hope to attract many of our members and new members as well to this location.  The facility has a lot to offer including RV sites with full hook-ups, tent camping with a bath house and dorm rooms.  They will even be keeping the pool open for us with a life guard on duty.  There are also two lakes at the facility if you want to do some catch and release fishing. We will have food concessions, merchandise and some novelty shoots running as well.  

The rendezvous will run from 8:00am - 4:00pm on Saturday and 8:00am - 1:00pm on Sunday.

I hope that you are able to attend and get in a final tune-up before the season is upon us.
