New and Improved Oregon FAL Shoot 2018 Thread and Poll

Please don't vote for your favorite weekend only - please vote for every weekend you can make it work.

If you can only make one weekend work, then that would be the one vote you cast (obviously). If you can make more than one weekend work, please vote for those weekends.

I'm "killing" June 1 & 2 as an option, because that would mean taking off Thursday and Friday in a week that everyone took Monday off (Memorial Day is 28th of May). Can't make guys work a 2-day week.

We've got some guys that need to put vacation in right away if they're going to get this time off. We need to set a date. We had 9 votes for June 15 & 16 in the past poll, but it isn't clear that these people could or couldn't make another weekend work.

TR - you'll see that I gave more options.

You can only vote once, so you might as well vote multiple options...

I still think you are daft, though.

You didn't vote that way, so the record will show that you, in fact, do not.

Au contraire, mon frère !

The poll option is " Are you daft ? " which is a query, not a statement, or verification of opinion.

I still think........



.....you are daft.

Your poll needs another option that says:
Just pick a friggen date so I can put it on my calendar. I will do my best to work around it and be there, but I need a friggen date to try and work around first.

PS - Please note I did not follow T's lead by addressing you as "Hey Daffy" in this post, despite the terrible temptation. I withheld that thought out of sheer moral fortitude !!! (and the hope that you will buy me a beer next time we are together as a thank you )

We'll get a date in the next couple of weeks.


Can't just pick a date. We need multiple guys to put this thing on. Since there is no never has been a Committee, we've got to get the participants and the event "hosts" to say "Yea" and "Nay".

Your calendar will have a date by Halloween.

I voted last two weekends. The 8th and 9th is still school/finals time for some of us. Makes it hard to attend. Having said that, pick the weekend that works for those who work so hard to put this on and people can attend as they can.

I missed the voting window but I'm thinking later. Either way I'll show up. If it's going to be snowing like last year I'm staying in a hotel. NCO academy in Germany in February cured me of any desire to camp in cold weather. You can take that cold stuff and shove it where the sun don't shine. No offense of course.

The year is ending, and I'm sure we all need to get the date on the calendar. This is what I'm seeing:


9 votes for June 8th & 9th

10 votes for June 15th & 16th

10 votes for June 22nd & 23rd


Additionally, we have votes from Tuscan, Tat2, Tailback, Ron, and Jason for the later date (22nd & 23rd) - making it a solid 15 votes. Given that information, I am hereby proposing that we make the date June 22nd & 23rd for the Oregon FAL Shoot 2018.


"Hurrah!"s, or boos, hisses, and flower pots can be thrown here: https://tinyurl.com/kcccgof Other comments and or whatever should be included in this thread for discussion and for the sake of posterity.
