A little background for those that do not know about the TexasCowboy Annual Memorial Shoot. TexasCowboy, aka El Roy, was a FReeper that passed away in October of 2005. El Roy was a Christian, a Texan, an American, a Marine, a father, a great friend and a true Texas gentleman ~ and for the ladies, he gave the best ever hugs!
One of El Roy’s favorite past times was to get together with family, friends and FReepers at various shooting ranges around Texas. After all the shooting was done, he would pull his BBQ pit out of the bed of his truck and cook a wonderful meal for everyone.
El Roy’s passing left a big hole in the hearts of those who knew him. A few weeks after his passing my husband & I were talking about him, and all the good times we had together. It was then we came up with the idea of honoring him by holding an annual shoot in his honor. The rest, as they say, is history . . . this October we will have our 7th Annual Shoot.
I would like to invite all of you to join us this year, and all subsequent years. It is a chance to have a good time shooting guns (owning a gun is not a requirement, and those bringing their guns don’t mind sharing), eating great food and visiting with really wonderful people.
This year’s shoot will be held in Aransas Pass, which is 30ish miles north east of Corpus Christi. The majority of the attendees will be staying at The Pelican Bay Resort in Rockport.
