Why waste your time trying to illegally/non-illegally get a room when your not 21, just stay at a backpackers. Cheap as and you dont exactly have to stay there long,just wonder around the city or some crap lol.

I agree, No alky at the meet. Unless you intend to create an exothermic reaction with oxygen using it.

Right there. Directions are easier than heck. Get onto Bruce Woodbury Belt from the 15, at the third "bubble" in the road, turn right, down the road past the powerlines a bit, and you're there.

Maybe the first person there should start a blazing inferno to guide the others?

If there are any of you that are interested:

The space in my new "house" is somewhat limited... I have so many things that I just can't bring myself to throw away. In the past, I've thrown out entire launchers because I didn't have enough space in my garage to start new projects.

I would try to pack my car as tightly as possible, if I knew that any of you who plan on attending the meet would give my old launchers a good home.

I'll try to lay out everything in a huge pile tonight and all of you can pick what you'd like to have... some of the launchers I have are WAY too long to fit into my car, as I may be bringing a passenger as well. But if you REALLY want something, let me know and I'll try to bring it.

I'll try to post a picture of everything in the next 3-1/2 hours, which will be midnight here for me.

To be fair... the FIRST person who replies to a SPECIFIC item will have exclusive rights to obtaining that item. The best way to let me know, is to right-click and "Save Image As" to your computer...

Edit the saved picture by circling the item that you want, and e-mail the picture to me. My E-mail is:

kwazewabbitt@yahoo.com

I'll reply again in a few hours.- Dave.

EDIT: The best way for everyone to know who REALLY has exclusive rights to "what", would be to post the picture and request here, so that EVERYONE can see....

I just don't want to overload this topic with a huge amount of replies.

Remember, you can have more than just one thing... just so long as you reply first to it.

I'm sure people wouldn't mind if the longer launchers had their barrels cut off so they could be reassembled with a coupler.

Im tempted to fly over to America and attend this meet so I can pick up what looks like to be a 3" sprinkler valve and a bunch of fittings.

I'll take the 3" valve and anything I can cram into the suburban that nobody else has a frothing desire for.

Bah, Eric beat me to the 3" valve. Wanted it for another autopneumatic :(
Oh well, I would be thrilled with any/all of the above ;)

I'm surprised you still have the GB burst cannon sittin around (Or are my eyes and memory outta sync?)
