A few items of interest: the Whidbey Island Rendezvous is coming up this August 9th, 10th & 11th. Host is Greene’s Gunshop. If you haven’t been out there then your missing one heck of a resource. Also if your hungry for anything Samuel Hawken, his life, his rifle and his legacy; Claudettes new blog https://talkinhawken.com/ is right where you want to go.
Also coming up October 19th is the S. Hawken Birthday Shoot also at Greene’s Gunshop. Period dress is appreciated, this is a blanket prize shoot followed with a potluck aftwards.
