V10---After watching your vid, i recant my statement about its bite. Anytime you get horizontal rain its no pussycat storm. I wasn't at the Grand that day and actually in town Sparta(where i live) that one missed us. That was one of the afternoon storms correct? The morning storm of Tuesday August 3 was a nasty one that nailed both Sparta and the WSRC pretty good. Thanks for the vid.---Matt
Thanks for the pictures and the video. The video while it is really good doesn't show how dark it got and how low the visability got. I was in the Kolar store. Everyone knows how close you are from the vendors to the skeet towers. You couldn't see the towers during the worst of the storm. Again thanks for the pictures and the video.
I too was stuck in the Kolar building. Got to meet Iggy, interesting man, had a good talk. One person in there spoke of seeing a golf cart going down the walkways, by itself. Others said the old people carriers were blown onto the trapfields and some towards the parking lot.
Larry, your right there is a lot of room between sites. This is in the north campground which I believe are all 5 or 10 year leases, but every year people find they can't make it the Grand and sub-lease the spot. Some other areas don't offer as much space (see my 16th pic). Best to contact the shooting complex for current pricing,that is if you can get them to answer your emails or calls. GaryL.
Hey V10 , I was sitting in the white SUV pictured behind the P/U in your video! Did you see the golf cart being blown backward by the wind? I thought we were going to have to move to avoid being hit by it.
We were also busy looking for the funnel, but the rain was so hard I don't think we could have seen it !
Thanks for the pics......
