I am starting to work on issues/prep for this year's match.

I do not see anyone volunteering to provide a 2nd place trophy. This is not a plea for that, I just want to be sure no one has volunteered and I have forgotten that.

I am proceeding as being the supplier of all trophies this year.

The Shlomo second plaque will be present for this year's match. Everybody has been busy with the upcoming matches, didn't see the need to announce its return. My bad.

I will donate one of the Fal beer mugs sold here on the Files a while ago as a prize. Hopefully it will make it intact to the match..

I can't wait for this match.

The original Stimpy FAL match is the greatest.

Does this mean you are bringing a 2nd place trophy?

Ruby Tuesday is about a 100 yard walk to the south of the hotel.

I think that hotel got some bad ratings last year from FAL match shooters.

While not the most well kept hotel it was adequate for sleeping.

The 100 yard walk to Ruby Tuesday is the appeal, certainly not the grandiose accommodations

If there is a better option within walking distance of a decent watering hole, I suspect there would be very little argument in relocating the base of operations

There is a Quality Inn and Suites across the highway from the Ruby Tuesdays. Relative new hotel and pretty good rooms. I stayed there for Stimpy's Run n Gun earlier this year. Definitely not walking distance though 6-8 lanes of high speed Georgia drivers to negotiate. And the traffic lights aren't set up for pedestrians. But it is close (short drive) to every thing.

Surely every single one of us played Frogger as a kid. We are well trained for this challenge!

I was already of drinking age when Pong, Frogger, and Pac Man came out. I had other interests instead of dropping quarters into a machine. Unless one of my interests said she want to play.

Please, if you book a hotel on the east side of GA400, stay there.

Longhorn will take your money and serve you well enough as a bar. Same distance as the other hotel and Ruby Tuesday's.

But please do not try to cross GA400.

I love all of you too much to pass the place you died being stupid every day I come home.

Stimpy, do you want me to bring the Second Place trophy with me, or mail it to you beforehand? They are supposed to be done by Friday since I told them no rush.

On a similar note Stimp, I will be driving home up I-75 from ATL mid/late morning on Wednesday if you wanted to meet up and drop off my donations. I have no intention of missing this shoot, but "just in case" if you want. I'm leaving here early tomorrow for meetings in Birmingham on Tuesday, so I can bring them if you want, just let me know bro.

I-75 the whole way?

Hmmm...might require PTO and I am running out of it this year.

My reservations made at the Quality Inn and Suites. More spendy than the Dawson Village Hotel, but I stayed there for the RBGC Run N Gun and it was quite comfortable. The Dawson Village Inn has received some very poor reviews on Trip Advisor about cleanliness , smells, etc.

http://www.dawsonvillageinn.com/

Their web site does show a picture of a newly renovated room. The deciding factor was they still have Smoking and Non-Smoking rooms. Stale cigarette smoke is a no-go for me, now.

Another decision needed is whether we meet at the Ruby Tuesday's, Longhorn Steakhouse, or Friends American Grill on Friday night. All have adult beverages, kiddie menus, and a mix of entrťe's for any taste. Ruby Tuesday's has a decent salad bar while the others have salads to order. I know Ruby Tuesday's can accommodate a large group, just don't know if the other restaurants can. All are just down the street from either hotel described above or the hotels not listed (Super 8 about a mile down the road).

So think about it.

No, don't take off work. If I have any conflict that keeps me away (I pray that I won't), I should know well enough in advance to get it to you one way or another. I am running my own PTO on a fine line schedule this year too, but for some really fun stuff

Mine too, but I booked at the DVI, thinking the crowd would likely do that and Ruby Tuesday again out of habit and/or momentum. I have no qualms about changing directions however and just look forward to seeing you all again as usual wherever the group decides is best.

ETA: Now registered on Practiscore as well, assuming Stimp approves my application

Me too. Just got in some chunks of 416SS and 4130 that I hope to mold into FAL parts soon. There's no dang telling WHAT abomination I might bring this year, but it's looking like I'll be lonely in Open/Other Class.

Confirmed, 2 machineguns present in 2 different side matches.

One used the way you would expect...one, less so.

Ammo for MGs will be provided. I think there may be a fee for the HP side match, but will check.

Top is the 3D printed part.

Bottom is the cast in brass version I will be adding to the trophies this year.

Made from the carcases of last years unloved Berdan brass!



Only 4 more to go...gonna try to figure how to do 2 at a time.

I did remember to quench the thing before it cooled so it wouldn't harden.
