Need help with dates...

I've got a photo folder in Photobucket that has multiple Oregon FAL Shoot photos from different years. I just don't know which is which...

I think this is the group photo (King Shot Saturday evening) at the 6th Annual Oregon FAL Shoot in June 2012, but that is Photobucket telling me the date rather than my own title or whatever. And it looks like they (PB) can't tell me anything else of use on dates, so...




I can name nearly every person in this photo, but that's not what I'm doing here. I'm trying to 'sort' the other photos in this same folder - which can't be from the same year.

I notice here that OddCarl is in the photo, as are Tat2 Junior, Black Elk, ALL FAL, Darren/PSL54 Junkie, Rich of Oregon, Vagabond, and Mason.

Also of note: Dom is in the picture, but none of his young guys / crew / helpers are in it.

Brother Wayne is in this photo. Did he come down more than one year? What year was that? Everyone remember the AK-47 Drop 15 win?!

Brunop,
This first picture is from 2012, Because Fal Files " Gandalf the Grey" was there with Brother. That year was the year that my oldest daughter was to be married. Myself and a tall skinny Louisianan referred to as Uncle Louis took my soon to be son in law to the canyon to shoot and introduce him to the clan. Brother and Gandalf were coming up river, called my cell to see of my whereabouts and joined us. Latter that day I returned my new son in law to be to my daughter in "ruff shape". I thought I was in for chilly reception. However my bride of only 30 years at that time said to me " Well he should have realized that he was with the Varsity"
The fifth picture is from 2015 with Gandalf and I in front of my old blue pickup. That is the year that the AK shot true. I got to come down the next year with Gandalf, "The Funkster and Brother but I was pretty crippled up and didn't shoot as well. But after multiple PBR's myself and and young man maybe 12 or so attacked and drove off bad guys with pine cones "No Quarter, No Prisioners" These were 20 something yahoos. That was a fun time. I haven't been able to come back since but when my life allows I shall return.
Brother Wayne

Brother Wayne!!

Thanks, man. That is very helpful.

And I was sorry to miss you at the farm a couple of weeks ago. I hope I see you this spring in Washington and the summer in Oregon!

When I read the title, my first thought was " Who in their right mind would want advice about picking up the ladies from a bunch of olde fartes like us ? "
