Re-visit to SE MI 'Tasting'
« on: April 05, 2012, 01:06:20 PM »
hey-Hey!!!,
I'm just SE of Ann Arbor and I have enough room to stretch out( up to 50 yards is easy ) whilst looking at and talking about air guns. Space enough to enjoy some eats in between. In honour of the Weekend-long vacuum tube audio meets my friend Jonathan Weiss put on, I borrow the 'Tasting' name. As at Oswalds Mill where he put them on, bring your gear and use it, and perhaps share it with somebody else who has not ever tried one.

I'd like to put the first one on in middle June on a Saturday. Start mid morning, have some vittles and run towards dinner. Stop at some point to have more vittles...by this time it will be getting low on light and looking at these things may become more difficult and y'all can depart.

Bring equipment; I am short on bench resting gear and such...probably chairs in general...:) Beverage of choice and and special eats you'd care to share would be great. I'll set a date by mid May. Going to suggest a variance on the 'double post rule' so I can put this one in the Ohio Gate and gather some folks from there as well. probably plenty of space for a dozen esteemed guests.

respond so that I may gage interest; I wish to avoid a mass 'I'll be there' on the Friday before it is supposed to take place. That and I'll need to issue directions and further contact info, yes?
cheers,
Douglas

My most valuable friends are the ones who will tell me I am wrong.

More valuable still are the ones who go to the trouble of making me see it.

I just had two folks over. Between us it was two father/son teams and I figure we could have easily fit another two or three folks in at the same time. Based on this, I'd prefer to limit this sort of gathering to about 8 guests...

hey-Hey!!!,
This will be on 16 June, start around Lunch. Burgers and brats to be grilled for Dinner, and pop to be drunk. Write me for directions/address. Bring something harder, but it will have to be put away until the rifles are...not going to have to explain a Dick Cheyney moment without his lawyer team backing me up.
cheers,
Douglas
