Plenty people still want it in Thurmont, but since the 'homegrounds' needs a significant overhaul (I heard the $1,000,000 figure tossed around), it looks like Millington is the place; which is fine by me.
For all those who remember the 'bad old days' at Millington and have not been back in awhile, you should look again. Over the past two years, Ohmer (with the MSSAs help with the PATs) has made leaps and bounds in improving the shoots. Hell, most of them even started on time last year. They're even trying to keep the targets down to $21/100 rather than move up to the $25/100 most other clubs are going to.
I know, (most of) the trophies are not what most people look for, and the kitchen could use a bigger menu, but, while the old reputation may have been deserved, things are improving.
Besides, it's probably the only club that gets to host 2 state shoots.
Yeah 21.00 a hundred but remember they charge a maintence fee of 1.00 and 1.00 for the voice release that no one else charges so in other words it is 23.00 for 100. I do not know of anyone charging the 1.00 for the voice release and it was only to pay for the calls but how long does it take to pay for the calls? It has been about 4 years now that the 1.00 has been in effect so the calls should be paid for
Yep! I did re-visit Millington at last years State shoot. Much better then a few years ago.
However!!! It would be really, really nice if there were SOME VENDERS! Having a good time at any Large shoot includes looking, buying stuff. Might need a new vest, a hat, gun parts, reloading supplies, new gun!... whatever. Guess I'll take care of that at the PA State! It would be nice if there were a "few" vendors at MD... JMHO
Hey guys....the flies around the beef pit weren't as bad as the ones found in the area's lodging. Thurmont may have been a nice place to shoot, but the area didn't have much of a motel/hotel selection! Not nearby anyway, but that's pretty much true with any out of the way venue.
The vendor that does the Pit Beef at Millington serves a good sandwich too.
