Just getting the discussion started, as it will probably take us a while to agree on a time and location.

I'm open. I'll be back in Peoria at the end of August to start my next semester at Bradley. I may be back and forth between now and then, but it would be more convenient for me at the end of August.

Too early to tell for me. I get every other weekend off.

And slightly off topic. Do any of you local guys go out during the week? Same as my weekends, I have alternate days off during the week. Monday and Tuesday one week, Wednesday and Thursday the next week. Where I go out depends on the bartender schedule, Johnny Vigs, Olivers, or The Silver Dollar.

I am always up for beers during the week. Now that I hae Newcastle on tap at the house, it is hard to venture outward. That said, if the wife is off work, I can usually swing a few beers at a bar, but a few days notice is always good.

1) End of August - I'm doing another show, On Golden Pond. Late August, not sure of dates.

2) What's an Oliver's?

3) Silver Dollar/Silver Bullet. Which is in the Hts, which is by Harbor Freight?

4) Nuke, I'm p*ssed. You said "end of summer".

5) What happened to the hookers and blow?

Just let me know what rifles to bring. Got room for a 50?



Well, we probably won't get to shoot, unless we can step up another level of coordination, but we will definitely get together for beers and grub. Hell, the this summer has been going, I will be lucky to make it back to the range before the end of summer.

Depending on weather, I would host a Fajitas and Margaritas night at my house, but the temps will dictate. Otherwise, I figure we can select another place locally, and get together for the same. On another note, I have already gotten a request for another Lasagna Night, so I figure when the temps cool down a bit, we will have another Italian night.

Pusk,

This may be a REALLY dumb question, but what is the crossed calvary swords on yours and many other avatars?

Also, I'm up for a few beers tonight if anyone wants to shotgun a get together for some beers...or is that get together and shotgun some beers?

This is my last week of summer school. Then it's a wait till school starts in August.

Pusk and Nucstl, eithe of you interested in a taser for party fun? Like this www.youtube.com/watch?v=LCGQNQ83c7Y

Hilarious.

The crossed swords are a show of support for Cav Arms in their ongoing struggle with JBT's who raided their place with an illegal warrant some weeks ago. There is a thread somewhere, but it's been edited due to being labeled "inflammatory". The story is now in the "case is ongoing category" so no one is talking.

Wow!

Finally back where we have power. Family reunion in the 'Great Lakes of Iowa'. Then back to the Quad Cities. Just in time for the Derechio wind. 90 mph wind, 50 miles wide, from South Dakota to Illinois. Trees blown down, power poles, everything. 6am Monday morning, lasted about 15 minutes at my Moms house in Coal Valley. We all hit the basement. Looked out the basement door and saw Moms hanging planters and other flower pots come flying off the deck like bombs. What a mess in the yard. Sawing the debris up and burning it Monday. Still a couple more trees to do. Still no power when I left this afternoon. A sister in law had a Apple i Phone which connected to something. 135,000 people without power in the QC yesterday. Back to Peoria about 3pm this afternoon. Brother in Des Moines called and said the Mid-America web site said only 75,000 left without power.

Woke up about 5:45-6:00 and went to the restroom. Half awake, and suddenly a horrible loud swooshing. Pulled up my drawers and went to look outside. I never want to hear that sound or see trees bent that close to the ground ever again. Very lucky. No trees fell on Moms house. The 'Blue Angel' hosta got creamed by the top off the walnut tree. Mom lives for her yard and flower beds, she cries for that one. But me and my family are fine, some folk died, some got damaged houses, we were lucky.

Guess it missed Peoria. Mother Nature rules, whenever she decides she needs to.

We got the same storm but not as bad. West Peoria bore the brunt, and I was without power for about 8-9 hours. Basically just a bunch of power lines and trees down.

I'm 18 miles from the Burg. If he wants, we can do pistols at my house or rifles down the block. If he's got ammo, I've got arms. I assume he was participating in the Cowboy Action with the Shady Creek Shootists. Those guys are just down the road from me.

I can do Aug 16., Sept. 6, 13, 20. All other Sats, the wife is working and she can't join festivities until 8pm. I would be up for hosting a cookout on one of the above dates, otherwise we could get together at like Crusens on Farmington, Kellahers, or another joint with outside optional seating.

Sept 13 and 20th are out for me as I am on Arfcruise
Link Posted: 8/8/2008 1:23:51 PM EDT
And a certain central Illinois arfcommer is getting married Sept13 so that weekend is shot for a handful of us.
Link Posted: 8/10/2008 6:20:57 PM EDT
I voted, but I think for one of the wrong dates. You know I want to be there, even if I ditch early. 23 and 30 has me committed at the Park (not PARC). Fact is, I'm really not any good for much more than getting the thread bumped.
Link Posted: 8/10/2008 6:41:37 PM EDT
Now I know next Saturday is the CCW class in Geneseo, and I will be attending the afternoon class, but 2-White-Crew is playing at Crusens on Saturday night...so the 16th is a possibility. Sept 6 is the best for me, but then again, what does that matter.

Double tap...

I can't attend any gatherings until after the 22 of August.

I Have the CCW class this weekend, work in my shop Sunday, Tennesee the 21, 22, and 23 (nascar race at Bristol).

School starts after that so it would be more convienient after the weekend of the 22....but that doesn't mean you guys can't meet.

Take care,
Bob
