I am pleased to announce that a dates have been set for the second annual Nighthawk Gathering! This year's Gathering will be on Thursday, May 2nd and Friday, May 3rd. These dates were what was agreed upon by all at Nighthawk, and me. This works best for their busy schedule, and is MUCH better than trying to wait until the heat of the Arkansas Summer! Last year's event was great! Everyone that attended commented on the great time they had, meeting all the staff at Nighthawk, and other Addicts! This was more like a family reunion! The event includes a full tour of Nighthawk's facility in Berryville Arkansas on day 1, which includes handling some of their in stock inventory (which is available for sale!) Day 2 is a fun and relaxed time shooting at Mr Stone's (Nighthawk's Owner) private range and ranch, followed by a catered cookout in his barn. Last year none other than Doug Turnbull made a surprise visit during the Tours, and he stayed and shot (and then ate, of course) with all Attendees at the ranch on day 2, as did many of the fine family of Nighthawk Custom employees. I know this is kind of short notice, but I had to wait for Nighthawk to solidify the dates. So now the rules: Please post here your intention to attend, followed by a PM including your name, email address, and cell phone number. (nothing with be shared outside of with me or Nighthawk (name/user name only). Spots are limited to 20 total. Each attendee may bring one guest for the tour/shoot so we are fair to others. Please include if a second person will attend the tour/shoot in your PM. If you attended last year, no problem, you may still attend again, but we are hoping to get some new Addicts this year as well. There is plenty to do for significant others that may want to come to Eureka Springs, which is were the hotels are located, but do not wish to attend either the tour or the shoot and cookout. However, they will be missing out!! This will be on a first come, first served basis, so the posts FOLLOWED UP with a PM will be used to determine eligibility based on time stamps, so don't hesitate. Even if you see so many posts that you know have filled up the spots, be sure to post and PM. I say this because, inevitably, some will have to cancel for various reasons, so a waiting list will be kept as well based on time stamps from posts followed up with PMs. More details will follow, and be sure to look up the old threads from last year's First Annual Nighthawk Gathering for details and pictures of this fantastic experience! https://www.1911addicts.com/threads/first-annual-nighthawk-gathering-update-september-20-21.45504/ Again, post then PM with your information if you wish to attend. And please be sure to spread the word to your fellow Addicts! And owning a Nighthawk is not required to attend, however, if history proves true, you WILL once you have this fantastic experience! (NO PURCHASE NECESSARY, but RECOMMENDED!! LOL) Looking forward to meeting some old Addict Friends, and some new ones!
