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?

Obviously the date will be changed.

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!
