Wow, great. I wouldn't use tire weights - the compund is too hard for these old barrels. I use pure lead - plumber's lead - for all of my civil war rifles. Tire weights don't expand enough into the rifling. I have a small supply but find it at Orchard Supply sometimes. McMaster Carr has it also, but it costs a lot to get it shipped in.
I am 150% with you on getting out and punching holes in paper. Since my schedule is probably more flexible than yours I would ask you to suggest some times. BTW, after a very looooooong wait, my order for primers shipped yesterday - I can now get some of my larger centerfire smokepoles energized!
2009 went pretty smoth execpt for me and Dan Loard having toe to toe meeing about Scout saftey. He had scouts RUNNING down the old trail from shotgun to camp office. NO MORE> Kris (Camp Director) put a stop to this. Dan is of course upset with me and Kris --oh well --
as far as staff goes if they want to go over to you let the come-- maybe someone will then realize that what they are paying jr. staff just is not right.
I do hope you keep this between us. Semper Fi. NOV 10 is USMC 234 birthday.
HEY THERE!! What all is happening with you and yours? All is well here. Upcoming Camp should be interesting. Jon Moats Sr. and I were taking count of those staff who WOULD NOT be back and came up with about 15. Have to idea where we will get replacements. Problem with Jr. Stafff -- They grow up!!!
Thanks for joining Eric! I would love it if you blogged on the site! When you sign in, go to blogs in the blue navigation bar. For instance, it would be good to blog about how well the field did with popcorn in surpassing their goal! This will be an interactive blog and as we invite people to join the network, they will be able to respond to what you say.
Being involved with the field, it would be good to have you list blogs throughout the week, whenever something good happens within the districts, new DE's, membership growth, popcorn sales, training, etc. It will be good to hear from the ASE.
