Grunt Fest 2018!

3:00 PM15:00

Grunt Fest 2018!

You've waited all year and it's almost here - The 2018 Men's Grunt Fest will be Sunday, September 2 at 3:00pm! Men's Grunt fest registration is online here.

For directions and a map click here: http://tinyurl.com/gruntfestmap

I hope you will not only register but also get friends and their sons to register as well. Just like last year, I wanted to give you a few important reminders:

You are welcome to bring your own firearm (and ammo) and/or bow.  We will provide the targets, clay pigeons, and food!  Liberty Firearms Institute will be on site for you to purchase ammo if you need.  No black powder due to the fire danger.

Each person must provide their own eye and ear protection.  Prescription glasses or sunglasses are fine as long as they have plastic, shatterproof lenses.

Please bring your firearm(s) in either a case or holster.  Please do not manipulate (clear, load, unload) any firearm other than on the firing line.  Our desire is to have a safe, fun event for everyone and we appreciate you following the rules when it comes to firearms.  Regardless of your past experience with firearms (or lack of), we are all going to adhere to the same safety rules.

Please park in the designated parking area to the west of the house.  Again, please do not handle firearms unless on the range and on the firing line and only AFTER the mandatory Safety Meeting at 3:00 (see below).

Bow hunters - If you have a portable target, please bring it.  Having actual archery targets will be a huge help (and more fun!).

*** If you desire to shoot a firearm at this event (yours or someone else's), there will be a MANDATORY Safety Meeting at 3:00pm SHARP.  If someone does not attend this safety meeting, they will not be allowed to operate a firearm.  No exceptions.  Thank you for your understanding and cooperation.

Click here to register for the Grunt Fest

YES!!  We will have legal machine guns to shoot again this year courtesy of Rocky Mountain Gun Owners (RMGO)!  These guns will be free for you to use - all you have to supply the ammo you want to shoot. If you have never fired a fully automatic gun before, this could be your once-in-a-lifetime chance!  Liberty Firearms Institute will be on-site selling ammunition (cash or cards accepted).

If you have a gun that you would be willing to lend someone to shoot, please bring it.

We will have tomahawk and knife throwing again this year.  Additionally, we are planning on having a live blacksmith demonstration.

Lastly: We need volunteers!  If you are able, please reply to this email and let us know if you are willing to come early to help set up and/or stay after for tear down.  You may also reply on the registration form.

Have a great rest of the summer and Lord willing we will see you on Sunday, September 2 for the 6th Annual Grunt Fest!

Blessings and thanks,
Mark Hotaling, Pastor
High Plains Harvest Church

P.S.  In case you missed it, below is the link to register.  We have capped this year's Men's Grunt Fest at only 150 men and boys so please get signed up today.

And be sure to forward this email to any man you think would like to attend.
