Who Flies Over a Gun Club?

 



While hanging out over in Angels Camp on Highway 49 in Calaveras County, I came across this sign posted on the power pole. The pole was located near the Fairgrounds in Calaveras County; “Frogtown” as the locals call it.


You remember Mark Twain writing about the jumping frogs of Calaveras right?

 

The whole area has frogs as a theme, Mark Twain appears to have put the county on the map.


This still doesn't explain the sign.


Who flys over a gun club in Calaveras County? A why are people shooting at anything that flies over the club?


I wonder if Mark Twain wrote about that!

Very cute...having just read the Robertsons' book on Duck Dynasty/Duck Commander, I suspect they already know where not to go unless one of Paul's calls is involved.

That has to go on that list of signs that makes you go 'huh?' Tom!

A moving experience!

Not sure that the sign is posted high enough for the airplanes to see.

I'm not sure who the sign was intended for, there were a few matching signs on additional poles. I don't think it was meant to be funny Wallace

Al & Peggy - I stood there scratching my head wondering what could both read the sign and be able to fly.

True Alan.

I wonder if the sign is for the pilots flying over. Or maybe it's for the smart birds.

Good morning Tom -

This one is a head scratcher for sure..... Not high enough and letters are not large enough to be seen from a plane. Brought a morning smile... Maybe that was the purpose after all :)

Have a great Sunday my friend.

And then  there is the question, "Who, flying over the gun club, can read that sign from a thousand feet?"  Some signage is wasted on the compliant.  8-)

I looked at your video. Nice, but I was expecting to see you flaping your way past the gun club with guys in duck blinds taking pot shots at you.

Hehehehe

It is the frog jumping capital, maybe the frogs have been dangerously jumping over the gun club Michelle.
