Just checked on the free stuff.
Not available that week.
 :(
No problem! Can sleep in the truck. Will not be the first time I've done that!

Looking at about a 12 hour drive from home.
(OK. They way I drive? let's say about 10)

I base that on 771 miles. Given the maps say about 12 hours? That's cray cray!
An average of 64 MPH? REALLY?
That's California driving around LA!
I travel from Ohio to Utah in 24 hours and averaged 80 MPH!

HaaHaa
NO thanks Bill. I'm done with all that. I'm coming as a regular member to shoot and watch others work for a change. :)
I'll gladly help some but not going to pack the house to travel again. Who knows though, I may buy a pull behind camper trailer before then.

Betty Lou and I have been looking for a class C RV. We want to pull the 4 wheeler trailer with it.

Anyhow... I'm about to make the call and reserve the date.
One thing for sure.... at least a few of us will have plenty to eat and shoot.... lol

I got that covered.
I have to go fill out the papers and take a check tomorrow on my lunch break.
I contacted Pepsi and that is all set up. A trailer, cups and enough to serve 400 and a couple banners.

I work for SMART Alabama LLC. We are a supplier of stamped automotive parts for a major auto manufacturer (not sure if I can post the name).
Our plant manager caught wind of what I was trying to do here..... ok, I flat out told him... lol
He told me to put together a letter of what it was I was doing and our company will support us in the form of donations, door/raffle items or what ever we need. We have a bunch of folding tables and chairs that can be used under the pavilion for registration, door prize/raffle and eating.
The thought just came to me.... I know where I'm going to get all the ice we need now.... we have a couple large ice machines here.

I am personally going to set up a 30 - 35 yard paintball range. I have some 1500 paintballs on hand.

I know Dez has a P17 I sent him to give away at the fun shoot, and another member sent some o'rings to rebuild 3 P17s. I wont set it in stone that I will or wont go but I for sure will send some stuff to help with some prizes.

Bill, Iím making plans to be there.  Might also have my friend from Jackson if I can peel him away.
 
I just want you to know Iíve given consideration that this decision has the potential to place me in proximity to both you and Jeff simultaneously, and I have decided to come anyway.

As I know it the line to shoot Jeff is long so I am building a long range gun so I can do it from the back of the line like 200y away.

Hope your good at moving targets... I have a feeling he'll be running from the deer.
