OK. What the heck is wrong now??

This sh!t can be done, IF we want to. If we have the range, then IT can be done. If it's not big, then it will be smaller!!

I don't have all the details, so I can't comment on how well it would work.

... So this is a national convention huh?
I thought is was Texas exclusive. I heard something about Texans not being able to relax comfortably around campfires with Arizona and New York accents and drawls yacking away in the area.
Link Posted: 5/29/2003 9:55:07 AM EDT
I'm interested. When will there be more info and details?
Link Posted: 5/29/2003 10:59:38 AM EDT


So it seems like nothing has been done yet, to the point that it won't be one this Oct.

How about this: Let have it out of the open so members can figure out a way to help.

-Wayne: call me.


Link Posted: 5/29/2003 11:07:50 AM EDT
I sure hope this will still happen. If we can get enough people to pitch in, we can probably still do it. Can we get some details on what needs to be done? I wanna help out any way that I can.
Link Posted: 5/29/2003 11:17:59 AM EDT


OK, I speak as a member here, not moderator.

I don't like to bitch or moan, but if we keep dragging our asses, this event won't happen this
year; then, we have NO ONE to blame, except ourselves.

Posted by ETH:
'We have the range secure. We have vendors aplenty. We have almost everything we need.

So what is the problem, Hun?

Pour the work on and lets get it done.
Lets get our part done within a matter of weeks!
I've never been told what we can do.
Since the asshole Arock issue, its kinda been dropped.

It might help if we could get access to the Texas event forum too!
That way we can see some kind of check list of things to do.

How aggressive are you going to advertise this to the public?

It will be as aggressive as we can possibly make it!

I figure we make a flyer, with all the pertinent info, and then members can copy it and hand it out at gun shows across the nation!

I figure that we should be able to draw 300 guests from Texas alone.

Can the other 49 states not provide an additional 300 guests?

Break even is around 400 paying guests, anything over that will only increase the number of door prizes, etc.

No one here is trying to make money on this deal - it's simply a matter of AR15.com pride!

I think I can say the word 'pride' around Texans and know that they will know precisely what I mean.

So are you in, or are you out?

Eric The(NowOrNever)Hun



Good idea.
If the # of attendees is not up to par, we can pitch in a little to break even.
If there's a profit, it can be used as a fund for future GunStock event.

I will take extra days off to help this 2003 GunStock.

I'd be glad to help if I can but I have absolutely no details except there is a range secured and it will be held somewhere around October and that help is needed. How are we supposed to help with details like that? Details please! Where, would be a good starting point.
Link Posted: 5/29/2003 2:48:01 PM EDT
Link Posted: 5/29/2003 3:03:47 PM EDT
ETH, I need you to send me all the details about the range (name, number address, etc.) so I can finish setting up registration.
Link Posted: 5/29/2003 3:05:46 PM EDT
Do we want to get together Saturday for lunch and sort out some of the details?

Bump firing contests
How to skin and cook your roadkill

That should be enough for you to chew on for now.

More to come.

Thanks Hun,

So, is there anything I can do to help? Not sure I'm going to be able to attend though. My wife's 30th high school reunion is in Wichita Falls on the 10th and 11th. Of course, I don't want to go to the reunion and she doesn't like guns, so maybe we'll just go opposite directions.

Maybe once the offical site is up make link for tasks/people/jobs still needed.

I will be willing to offer some assistance depending on what you guys need.

BTW I noticed on the website for the range that it was for sale. Does anyone know what they are asking for it($$$$)???

Link Posted: 5/29/2003 7:48:24 PM EDT
With the sluggish economy I know a couple of the Wa. crew should be able to take advantage of some super low airfare deals. I am positive a few of us could make it down. Anything I can do just let me know.
Link Posted: 5/29/2003 8:06:39 PM EDT
ETH, Like I told you this past weekend, just before it started raining sideways, that I would be honored to assist in any way I can. I promised LT that I would help out as a RO or RM as he requested. I extend that promise to you and the AR15.com community. I will do whatever needs to be done to make this event a great success. Put me in coach, I'm ready to play! Who wants me on their team?

To everyone, stop bitching about what Arock, KellyR, and DonR coulda, woulda or shoulda done. That whole incident was FUBAR, but where would we be if they had all died in a car accident or a tornado? I'll tell you where we would be...exactly right where we are now. I only know one way to handle a situation like this. Redistribute their packs and responsibilities among those of us still here, and carry on with the mission. Mission first, people always. Been that way since November 10th 1775 and it ain't bound to change anytime soon. Saddle up and move forward.

Well said DP. How about we're working together to achieve a common goal?

BTW, Thanks, brother.
