For The (Ahem!) Committee and Everyone...

Two Topics:

1. Cost to cover the Blue Throne and paint, paper, hardware, and various repairs

2. Steel for Terry's events

Regarding cost, I suggest we could be more "accurate" and ask for $7 for each person for the crapper (20 people x $7 = $140), and $10 x every shooter for supplies, repair expense, etc., or we could just ask everyone to bring a $20 bill. I don't care either way.

Regarding steel we need: may not have 'stands' anymore. I think I left them in Washington. Terry is adamant (for good reason) that we have falling targets on some of the stuff for Dos Equis (The Most Interesting Match in the World). So regarding that match...

* I definitely have 8x13s on tire sections that can be screwed to the 4x4 frame

* I also have enough poppers to cover the TR Handgun event (4) + Terry's event (3). That way we don't have to steal targets from Rich or Otis.

* I also have the plates (8x13).

If Rich has some stands, we're good. If he doesn't, I'll get Greg on the welding job this week some time. Need to know about stands.
"How we burned in the prison camps later thinking: what would things have been like if every security operative, when he went out at night to make an arrest, had been uncertain whether he would return alive and had to say good-bye to his family? Or if during periods of mass arrests people had simply not sat there in their lairs, paling with terror at every step on the staircase, but had understood they had nothing to lose and had boldly set up in the downstairs hall an ambush of half a dozen people with axes, ham- mers, pokers, or whatever else was at hand. . . . The Organs [police] would very quickly have suffered a shortage of officers . . . and notwithstanding all of Stalin‘s thirst, the cursed machine would have ground to a halt." - A. Solzhenitsyn, Gulag Archipelago
