I invited the group that practices in Terrell to come to my place for an armor work day.  I know it's a long drive out here, but I thought if anyone was interested in coming out to spend a day working on armor I'd also invite anyone from Loch Ruadh.
I was planning on opening it up on Nov. 13 from about 11 AM until dark.  Everyone is welcome to come early or late whenever they feel they can make it.
My address is 1562 Dogpatch Dr., Terrell, TX  75161.  If you don't have a GPS, go east from Terrell on I-20 to exit 506 "FM 2728/FM 2727 College Mound Road."  Turn right (south) at the first turn off of the off ramp onto FM 2728 and go @ 2.5 miles to Abner Road.  Abner Road is disjointed by about 50 feet, so don't turn right, go another 50 feet and turn left.  Go @ 2 miles on Abner Road, then turn left onto Dogpatch Drive.  Go about .6 miles.  We are the 6th house on the right with a big antenna.
Since it is predicted to rain Thursday and Friday the yard may be wet and slick, so people need to park on the drive, if possible, or to the right of the drive if that is full.  We can have this rain or shine, as we will be inside the barn, but it IS a barn, so if anyone has any allergies to dust, horses, etc, they might want to take benadryl or whatever they have.  It also might be slick or muddy, so wear shoes for mud (or whatever else happens in a barnyard) and be careful walking.
The barn has a cement floor, electric lights, and electical outlets.  The weather isn't predicted to be cold, but if it is I will have a small heater.  I will have a couple of 3 x 6 tables and some other work benches, and also a couple of anvils to rivet on.  We should have plenty of room.  I will have the horses blocked out of the work area so they won't bother us.  Everyone might bring their chairs, drinks, and a snack or two if they want to stay all day.  I will probably be working until everyone leaves, or until dark.
If it isn't too wet and someone wants to bring a horse and do some riding, we have @ 10 acres behind the barn and a round pen.  The round pen area would probably be good if someone wants to fight, also.
