Mine are not popping as of yet. They are probably a few days away though.

Dewey Beach Running Of The Bull Date Changed | WGMD
Moving the "event"from 4th of July weekend to a mid June weekend makes sense for traffic and helping to boast attendance on a slower weekend.

They're not real bulls, right?

So here's one. I am trying desperately to move to the shore. I love several things outside of the beach and the water-

1) Shooting
2) Model Trains
3) Jeeps

Are there any shooting facilities in Sussex county - ranges either indoors or out?
Any model train clubs?
Any jeep organizations? I have a nice shiny and new modern jeep but am also working on a 70 year old model to put around in too.

There is the Bridgeville Rifle & Pistol Club.
Bridgeville Rifle & Pistol Club, Ltd.
They require you have a membership in the NRA but pretty easy to get into.

You know that Delaware is only 96 miles long, don't you? I'm in Kent County, and it takes me about 35-40 minutes to drive to Rehoboth Beach, which I do quite often for my work.

I'm saying this because "my" shooting range is a tad north of Dover, not a long ride from the beach (we don't have a "shore"). Here's a link to the shooting range I'm familiar with. I had my beginning course/training there.

We have a great model train club, also, which was once located in the Town of Wyoming. They have a new location now, noted in this link. http://www.fsmrrc.org/about.html

Can't help with a jeep club link. But there must be one/some. Jeeps are everywhere!

Default Delaware-A Bargain Basement

Interesting letter/opinion in the Sound Off section of the Delaware State News today 3/7/17. (don't think I'm permitted to provide the link). The native Delawarean said what many of we locals think, and he even signed his name! Cheers to him!

His lengthy opinion focuses on tourists who crowd Bargain Basement Delaware, but yet contribute little. We natives/locals are taxed in order to keep roads/highways safe and in average condition, mainly to help the tourists get here. The opinion also included thoughts on jobs that tourists may help to create, yet they are low paying bus boy/waitress jobs at the beach. Of course, these thoughts conflict with Delaware's Tourist Industry which keeps plugging away.....more tourists-more tourists, more retirees-more retirees. Lastly, between the lines, there's the sore spot....natives/locals who've paid taxes into Delaware a lifetime, only to invite retirees from everywhere else to reap the rewards. Thus the conflicting opinions.....over and over again. It's a deep and murky subject.

Don't forget the sewerage and water treatment plant too!! On the flip side the ones who actually invest here be they retirees or 2nd homers pay school taxes for a service they will never use. That is a big help in Cape Henlopen and Indian River School Districts.
