Just give me a 3-5 day notice, and I will be okay. Gotta know when to put in for a night off.

Turbohacker, the date/s depends on you. I've talked to A-98 and we're both free all summer, and I guess BC is too. Pick a date, any date. If you don't I will, I guess.

Alright, I'll bring

-basic combustion
-shell loader
-diaphragm paintball pistol
-burst disc mortar
-clear strafer
-pocket strafer
-my hybrid if I make a new mixing tank
-soccerball gun if I ever finish it

-mylar for burst discs
-paper towels
-about 8000 airsoft rounds
-a couple vortex blocks if anyone wants one for cheap (really cheap)
-aluminum foil
-soda cans
-8" PVC if you guys want any
-probably about 20 pounds of taters
-3 hp 5 gallon compressor, unless BC wants to bring his instead
-crappy little camera
-PVC primer, cement, and cleaner
-a bunch of random fittings and pipe
-folding chairs
-probably 500 paintballs or something
-pimped out 98 Custom, 2 20 oz CO2 tanks
-some sodas and food and stuff
-Ipod and speakers

I'll update this post when I remember other stuff.
BC, I'd say no to pyrotechnics (for now), because the site is only about a mile away from the city and California isn't too happy with fireworks/explosives, or BP mortars unfortunately.

I'll give Turbohacker a day or so, then pick a date early on in the summer; there's bound to be delays.

Anyone want vortex blocks a only the cost of the materials? I'll bring a few along then, and I need to know how many to bring.

No word from the city hall yet, but I'm going to call the police station today.

Alright, I called Greenfield's city hall, and they said that that piece of land isn't part of the city. They said it was just part of the state and they didn't know anything else. Therefore, it's a go!
Everyone fine with July 6th and 7th? Possibly 8th?

Oh, adn everyone found the location alright?

Erm, we still need permission. If you cannot get in contact with anyone, I will call the state police department, and ask questions from there.
I have some random 8", probably 20ft in total, but nothing longer than 5-6ft, but thanks.
I might want some vortex blocks though ;)
