Yep, Halloween. This will be about the umpteenth year that we have put on this display at WAC. Always lots of fun, even if it rains. We've never been rained out but we have been rained on, some. As in the past, we will have some money to help pay fuel expenses for getting vehicles to the show. Can't guarantee how much, but usually we can take the bite out of transportation. We do ask that if you're bringing something big and heavy from a long way off, contact me first about fuel costs. Obviously, we don't want to have to fork out dough for someone bringing a Sherman tank here from Florida. Just keep it reasonable. Love to see a Sherman, though...

So bring whatever you have and join the fun. Anyone bringing a display vehicle gets into the gun show free and are encouraged to go in and look around for hot deals. In terms of firearms, it's a private club function, not on public property, and club policy is that only club members can bring, buy, or sell firearms. It's ok to bring demilled or other nonfunctional firearms to the display. You can join WAC on the spot, too. Anyone joining will have a criminal background check done online, right there. All functional firearms will be unloaded and zip-tied during the show. Club policy.

We usually have about 20 vehicles of all types. I encourage everyone to bring a sign board or other info to basically describe your vehicle to the public. Typically, we have several thousand people attend this show. We are set up between the entrance gate and the gun show exhibit hall, so literally everyone will walk through our display. I'll be passing out forms for fuel reimbursement during the show.

Please arrive early enough to be parked in place before the show opens at 9am. WAC is kind enough to provide fuel help and we should return the favor by being on time. It's also a safety issue, as we will be smack dab in the middle of a flowing crowd and they don't want squished people staining the pavement. :-0

We usually stay until the gun show winds down, about 2pm or so. There will be an area to park towing vehicles, for anyone who brings their vehicle on a trailer.

Questions?

I am still thinking on which vehicle and I think Larry will bring his M813. Most of the rest of our crew seems to be tied up with other projects that weekend. P

Time to bump this one back up. It is next Saturday. Looks like the 1SG, M923A1, Larry M 813, and I still haven't decided, depends on the weather, and maybe another M151A2 (weather dependent). It is a nice event and there are some really nice displays inside too.

Looking a bit damp for tomorrow, but come anyway. Figure it's a free fuel trip and free entry into the biggest gun show in the state. We'll be parked within 100 feet of the pavilion building where the gun show is, so we can dash in and out, depending on rain. I'm loaded up and ready to pull out in the morning. Please be in parked in place before 9am. See you there.
