Thank you for joining Mr. Beach and welcome to TOO. I hope you hang around the site for a while, great people here! Guys, their Facebook site has some nice pictures of their facilities and events. Looks like a well run club and I know TOO utilization would only be a benefit.

Joe, nice options offered at both locations, think we need an identity check for the event. Mingo definitely set the bar by including all the shooting, archery, ATV and camping options. Tough call since this event truly started as an archery shoot and camping specific event but morphed into a lot of offroad riding and free-reign style event. Thoughts on a poll if LC F&G is an option?

Most of the places I used to race have camping. Is guess some of them would rent facilities so long as no race that weekend. Unfortunately, most were not centrally located. Eastern side of state or SE Ohio.

I vote for the walhonding campground. We could set up camp right along the river, fish, trails to ride, and swim.
Did you pull up the aerial? It does not appear to be "right on the river", but it's hard to tell what's really along it with the tree cover. Be worth confirming the primitive spots really are pissing distance from the river and that we could get 2-3 together.

I really wish we weren't so busy this summer. I would host the shoot at the farm. Other than the 3d course, we could accommodate all the other activities. Maybe next year we can revisit it.
Hell it sounds like you need to host a TOO turkey hunt to thin the thunder chickens out a bit down there 🦃🦃

There might be 25-30 guys there throughout the weekend, but I'm pretty sure it'll be the same 6-7 guys that want to shoot at the gun range.
And what about the trap shoot and archery? Remember lots more people have guns and bows than they do quads. We are not going to find a place like Mingo where we can do everything on the same property. If we can find a campground that allows quads and has acceptable ranges within 5-10 minutes then that will be perfect. However if we can't, the preference should probably go to shooting related events over only being able to ride.

😂 You ever try to coordinate a convoy of 25 guys on a 30 minute road trip. Woodburrys rifle and skeet range was good but their Archery course sucked ass.
Give me a break Joe. Good Lord all you need is a good convoy briefing, say a prayer before SP, everyone chug a monster, keep your intervals and you are all set. Lol

I'm thinking a poll/vote might be in order.

I'm sure there's a field somewhere 5-10 minutes from Woodbury that you guys can pitch a tent in
