I have a suggestion for next year's rally. While I was talking to a few veterans, the howitzer fired. Needless to say, the veterans all took a minute to gather themselves before they continued the conversation. It usually shocked the **** out of me every time too. Would it be possible to have the gun crew sound a warning siren over the PA system for a second before firing the howitzer?

I agree, was walking near by the blank fire area when they fired the howitzer. It shocked me and no one had the option of covering their ears. Lot of people complained. I am all for the blank fire of MGs and cannon and fire my 37mm cannon live at mg shoots etc., but always with a loud "fire in the hole" warning first. They should think about this for next year.

Yeah, the first one... I don't think I was ok for a few minutes. I swear I could start to feel the pressure wave before the sound hit (by all of 0.5 seconds) as the weekend went on. But yeah, there needs to be a warning for that.

Lance, I paid $50 for setting up and selling from my campsite but had no water/power. I think that they did overcharge you. Sorry. They (the ladies in the booth) seemed to have a very loose understanding and fee structure. I think Jim's guy (for as odd as he was) did better.

deuce parts

Not sure were to place this on the forum, I'm reaching out to anyone that went to the Denton NC rally. I am trying to get back in touch with the gentleman that was running the shooting both and that was selling items from a table/trailer for m35s, I was told he was somewhat in part in running this event.
Unfortunately I did not get any contact info from him and am interested in getting a contact number or if he can contact me. so if anyone on this form can help it will be most appreciated
Thanks Wayne

Best regards to all and we wish all a blessed and bright new year.

Is Jim Henrys business open during that weekend? I have never gotten down there to check it out yet, and I wondered if I could go by on that Saturday.
