I figure we're all planning on pointing at the Georgia feller anyways, should anyone ask what the hell all of us are doing out on that mountain and where all that liquor came from. Go on and blow some shit up :thumbup: I'll hold your beer! :ebiggrin:

Sorry, I flat out missed that.

Didn't mean to anybody's dander up.

I'll put up the T-SHirt ordering site using the Green truck design as it appears to be leading the pack.

Will these shirts be available to anyone or must you attend?
Do they raise money for HD?

@Barreldawg:
The shirts are open to all interested parties. A number were ordered last year by folks who couldn't attend.

We generally keep the cost as low as possible to cover art & vendor costs. We could tack on$5 for a donation to HD or HDA if you'd support that.

Had the artist guy change some colors around to offer youse another idea to chew on, maybe spice it up a bit ...

I'll get him to enlarge the banner a bit, it's sorta lost there.


@ShineOn - Yeah, I guess I do look at it differently as I'd like to learn and grow in this hobby. I haven't had the chance over 51 other weekends even though I've asked plenty of times. I guess it's just as well the dates shifted to September as I have a PPG training class in Corpus Christi that overlaps.

I get it. It would be awesome. Totally awesome. The temptation to do so is very inviting, especially because it feels so comforting to be in the presence of other stillers. We almost forget how illegal it is when it feels so natural. My post, although direct, was with the best intentions of the group as a whole, including you. We all have families to return to and take care of. Just the act of getting together to drink around a bench can raise enough eye brows, but to publicly promise an active felony is surely inviting trouble. Perhaps from your seat it is a little like witch hunt paranoia, but I'd rather take calculated risk in my life. Risk- reward for showing up and drinking whiskey is within my wheelhouse. A bunch of us getting together with paraphernalia on site is not. Until it's legal, it's just not worth it. We should enjoy what we can until then. A couple drinks, few laughs, and our knowledgable experience.

I sure hope hearing it straight isn't why you arent gonna make it- I believe friends should be honest and appreciate that honesty. I enjoyed your contributions to the event last year, and you'll be missed if you don't make it this year. I will keep hoping your other plans work out so that you can join a few 'ol backwooders on the mountain top.

Edit* To add, I like the new vibrant look of the truck. Bet it will pop on that black shirt :thumbup:

I have privately apologized to Tater and will do so publicly as well .
Varocketry was doing a fine job of handling the Tee Shirt aspect of the party and I never gave this a thought .
I didn't consider it a commercial venture . Simply a nonprofit act of bonding to commemorate a gathering of the group .
