    Mods - can y'all float this one?

    Okay - Let's hear from you - who's going?

    Looking to be myself and the Wendinator, her sister, Arne & Linda and the bunch (possibly with a wedding - still don't know...), along with Kay.

    Driving the green van, putting up the party tent. Wendy is going to have to drive in Friday night/Saturday morning.

    Who else? Weimadog said he was interested, and I'm hoping that Intune will bring his bunch (and maybe a guitar?). Weimadog, you gotta fiddle you would take camping?

    Zorna has a tent, Weimadog has my large tent, which I think still leaves me a small tent or two... Going through stuff this week...

    Whats the show dates again?

    Ill ask Darrin and Rod today see what they say. We said we would likely come up once we heard about everyone camping. But will have to see what the calendar holds. And dang it....the TN Mafia has to have a showing other than just Intune ;)

    I'm planning on being there. I've put in for a vacation day that Saturday. The only thing that might keep me from showing up is money. I'm still not sure when the Army is going to pay me my severance. If they get it to me soon, I'll be able to go. If not, I won't be able to afford it. Dang it, I've been out a year and a half, and the Army is still affecting my finances and my plans. Dirty Rat B#*^#%@s.

    Kevin, the dates are the 2nd thru the 4th of April.

    Yeah, but people start showing the week before. I think our plan for St. Louis is to get there around Thursday morning.

    Well Frank if I go you are always welcome to catch a ride. All you would really have to pay for is food. I might be able to get talked into going if more are going. I dont know cause I think Im going further north in June, going to the F1 race. I wouldnt mind camping out tho. But all that Knob Creek mudd that they are so famous for at every shoot kinda deters me a bit....I hate mudd :D

    Is there a flyer or something about where this is, and what sort of stuff we can expect at the site where we will be staying?

    Look at www.machinegunshoot.com.

    Warning: They really hurt you on the camping fees - $10/head/night. All they provide is portajohns (admittedly, they're kept fairly clean).

    I'll have a 14x20' frame canopy tent. May also have a portable toilet/shower tent.... I've got three or four other tents for snoozin... Bring your own bedding if you're borrowing a tent.

    We'll also have coleman stoves, lanterns, bbq grills, tunes, etc... I am not responsible for feeding you or keeping you amused.

    If we can figure out some "group meals" for campers, that might simplify stuff a little...

    As time goes, and we figure out what we're doing, we can firm more up.

    Back to top, campers... I need to know how much to bring for breakfast, etc...

    I am planning on doing breakfast on Saturday and Sunday. Won't be providing food for other meals. If we wanna figure out a menu, tho, I'm up for that...

    Good. Because I'm now officially out of tent space.

    Those folks who are attending...

    Bogie thur-sun
    Wendinator sat-sun
    Zorna, Wendy's sister thur-sun
    Kay thur-sun
    Trevor, Kay's friend thur-sun
    Weimadog fri-sun
    Arne & Linda and several of their kids thur-sun
    Intune & Family fri-sun
    Couple of other folks I know fri-sun
    Hso and Gwen

    I'll be in a green 1995 3/4 ton Chevy conversion van with Missouri plates, next to a 14x20 canopy tent with a blue tarp on top and a blue tarp floor. Look for yellow crime scene tape and a 3' high blow-up Shiner Bock bottle on the roof of the van. Will try to be up near the road in a flat area, but may be down toward the treeline.

    Bowlcut & OEF-VET, I need to know if you're coming...
