    Quick question for one who has never attended and I'm not sure how this works. Do we donate $$$ towards food and drinks or bring food, snacks and drinks? Or is it a combination of both?

    Looking better to be able to attend, plan on bringing

    70's series 1911
    LH Custom Tikka .243
    LH Custom Win Model 70 .300 WSM
    Queen B (browning SA .22LR)
    Pop's 1940's Winchester model 94 .32 Win Special
    Pop's 1953 AYA Double
    1949 Browning Sweet 16

    Too many to bring?

    We usually meet up somewhere and go out to eat on Friday evening. Saturday lunch is a potluck-- many of us try to bring our personal specialties or something unique from our area. Saturday dinner a few of us have been chipping in toward that-- an uncooked rack of ribs would be very welcome. Drinks-- I will have a 5 gallon cooler of Gatoraid and unsweet iced tea for out on the range. Adult beverages later on is BYO with a strong emphasis on local microbrewers in your area. Or piss water if that makes you happy.

    If that is your thing, by all means have at it. Just don't ask me to trade you for one of my brother's beers.

    Bring water and a cooler, it usually hot and no drinking water up on the hill.

    Most of us have extra water.

    I'm hoping I can make it this year. Of course its difficult to plan ahead when running a business. I've got a few rifles and pistols to bring and I'm hoping the 357 project will be done by then to bring as it's now my priority project. If anyone is interested in seeing a 12 lb projectile reach mach speeds, I can bring some rocketry with me. Of course the roof will be 49,999 feet to keep from needing an faa waiver

    No. None of us would ever want to see a 12 pound rocket shoot up in the air. (can I press the button?)

    I will be bringing bottled water and canned or bottled sweet tea for whoever wants it. I hope someone will take some this year, because I was left with a lot of leftover water last time.

    Pffft. You don't need that much height when you aim it horizontal. We can get about 300 yards that way.

    Kinda thinkin' about bringing some of my "special beer" if any of you'ns would want any. Jerry suggests that I bring up a couple of my flintlocks and set up to let anyone who wants to try one out. By the way---drove through Atlanta Tuesday with a pick-up load of corn (solid kind, not liquid ) and I COULD SEE OUT OF MY TRUCK! THANK YOU, JERRY!

    I'll take you up on the 'special beer' along with 10 pounds of cornmeal please. That store bought stuff just don't cut it.

    I was out of town all weekend, doing an inspection of a "lemon" car for the Better Business Bureau. Bobski, I've never heard of that place- - - -gotta look it up! I'm just off US highway 64, near the Alabama state line and I-65. This "winter" hasn't seen much snow anywhere in Tennessee!

    Edit: Hanging Limb is about 150 miles NE of my place. It's pretty close to Tennmike, however.

    A local place, in Bowling Green, was named the best beer bar in Kentucky, by CraftBeer.com. It's the White Squirrel Brewery. They make a Kolsch, Pale Ale, and Nut Brown. I'll bring a crowler or 2 of each.

    Gun wise, the only ones that I know for sure so far that I'm bringing are my Mossberg MVP's in 5.56 and .308. I may bring the stainless .357 lever as that got shot a bit last time and maybe the .22mag single shot again. If Joe is really going to show up, I might bring an 1895 in 45-70 and a handful of snot slingers.
    Food wise, I was going to bring the obligatory shrimp to boil. If y'all are good with that, I'll point out that I can bring the really big ones but the mid sized ones are better boiled. I've also got enough mackerel to make a batch of smoked dip and the lovely Miss Debbie will make her mango/key lime pies.

    The mid sized are better, but any shrimp you've brought has been better than the crap I get here.

    Chris, the difference is that the shrimp Steve brings up are freshly caught NORTH GULF COAST WILD SHRIMP! And the shrimp available to you in the middle of the Country are Southeast Asian farm shrimp raised IN SEWAGE WATER! And the sad thing is that our so-called sorry ass government does not even require this fact to be known when buying 'Nam shrimp! Yet let me try to grind and sell grits on any type of flooring but hard tile or cement, and I'll be nailed to the cross!

    Yep, I once had shrimp that were fished out of the Florida Intracoastal waterway, and grilled later that day. That and the fresh shark that was caught out in the ocean was the best tasting and most tender I ever ate.

    Woods is correct. I saw on TV where they showed Asian shrimp farmers feeding chicken droppings to the shrimp in tanks they raised them in.

    There's a documentary out there reporting on catfish raised in Mekong river water- - - - -and how it's processed and shipped. It's enough to puke a buzzard!
