Default URSA Nevada Match Near Fallon Interest?

Are there any shooters interested in a 2000 yard match near Fallon in June?
For those not familiar Fallon is east of Reno and a bit south it has rooms and a decent Basque restaurant plus Reno is nearby for gambling and all the other amenities.
Let me know.

Let me know.
As you know, over many years I've spent a lot of time shooting ELR as well as scouting areas up there, mainly because I had buddies stationed at NAS Fallon. FWIW BLM up there is a bit less defined in that particular area. A lot of the prime flat areas, North of Fallon, thru Fernley and up to the Res around Pyramid, are 1 square mile checker patterns of private then public. You need your GPS and grids if you do get questioned (unlikely - unless one of the geo-thermal guys report you) because you have a group of trucks and draw too much attention or mistakenly end up too close to/on DOD or RES.

Just something to consider:

Fallon is a good 1hr+ from Reno; plus expect to drive out to and onto the dirt, for another 45min+. In my opinion, way to far to go into Reno for Dinner and Gambling and then back to Fallon after spending all day in the desert when you are staying in Fallon.

Carson City is closer to Fallon by 30 minutes, not much there compared to Reno

Fernley is 20min East on US80 from Sparks/Reno and about the same 45min to ELR Areas; Plus it is 30 minutes closer for anyone cutting through Sac. Comfort Inn is just off US80 and not expensive. Fernley has food, not nearly as many choices the other two but it is a least feasible to go into Sparks or Reno for a late Dinner. It also has better ELR access for cars than just about anywhere South of Fallon.

The match if a location can be found would either be the 3rd or 4th Sunday of June.

It would not be convenient to me. Is there a problem with the clear lake location? Other than the one time a year too shoot thing

Normally we shoot above UpperLake ever 3rd Sunday of the month and close down for the deer season when people will be walking through the area camoflaugued up.
After our spot burned up in the fires the forest service closed the area to all visitors which includes us.
They opened the area above old county road 308 which is the old fire area but our spot is closed until June of 2020.
If anyone knows of a better spot let me know.
The advantage to going to Fallon is different shooters can join in and more venues is a plus as well.
