Is there ever going to be a massive meet in Australia?

Unread postAuthor: Redcoat » Sat Sep 22, 2007 12:15 am

Hi all,

Kinda peeved, but would there ever be a meet in Australia?

i mean it's getting annoying, I know the cops would show up so maybe someone should rent a town hall or something and we can shoot inside it :P .

I dunno, but I thought I'd let my angst be know.

Happy Spuddin'

It's just not worth the risk in my books, that's why this site is so valuable to us spudders, not only in oz but other f!@# up countries or states that don't allow us to enjoy our hobby to it's full potential. :(

Isn't it a bit silly to give the peelers a chance to round you up in one go ;p

Yeh, I guess it can't happen *Heroic stance, talking about the future boldly* but maybe, just maybe this country can sought it's priorities out and let the spudders rise and have a meet.

I just had an idea, why not make a team of spudders from AUS and try and raise enough cash, Through fund raising stuff like selling those fund raiser chocolates and donations, to send them to America so they can compete there in the meets representing Aussie Spudders.

Wouldn't it be easier (cheaper) to instead raise money and buy a plane ticket to the USA for a meet?

Surely you guys can find somewhere to shoot stuff where there are no cops.

What ever happened to "the OutBack"?
Or has it been removed to make way for housing developements?

Yeh, but not all of us can get there. It's harder than you think.

And yeh, i didn't mean take disassembled guns through customs I meant go to America and get parts over there.

Other than than that, It looks like it's gonna be an "online meet" on A.N.Z.S.G.A. or here.
