I've said it before, and I'll say it again...

I need to know if the 23rd, 24th, and 25th of march, or memorial day weekend works for everyone! If one works, and the other doesn't, please tell me. If both work, please tell me. If you don;t know what works, if anything, please tell me. If neither work, please tell me, but just give me an answer so I can plan around it!

As me so far, ok.

For reference purposes I will not be able to attend between the dates of 9th - 18th of March. Also in other news Ive recently purchased a shooting chronograph, and it is currently in route to my house. So I will be able to bring that, and test cannons velocity. Ive also consider the making of some test stands to secure the launchers, but that is still in the 'should I, or not?' planning stage.

Alright, I hate to say this, but I cannot commit very much time to the meet, as I have now 3 college-level classes going on right now. I will probably be on on weekends and maybe friday nights, but other than that, I won't. Both the 23rd-25th of march and memorial day weekend work for me. I'd like to set it up so that as many people as possible from the forums can attend. I know my planning seems excessive, but I want to make sure that everything goes smoothly.

By the way DR, if you're checking the thread, can you please say what dates work for you?

I can make it 50/50 on the 23-25 of march, but not on memorial day weekend.

The International Potato Launching Association. Basically a loosely knit group of spudders. You're automatically "in" by joining the forums.

Ah, well almost any weekend works for me.
What I'll probably bring.
Big ass 4' something tall tv, to shoot at.
Marble sniper
Experimental ammo
Air compressor.
cell phone, video camera
maybe I'll be able to get a gold ball barrel for my hybrid.

I'm new to this forum. I'm from Horseshoe Bend, Arkansas. The mayor of our town is interested in holding a large potato launching event around the fourth of July. We are in the process of raising prize money, etc. I need suggestions for rules, etc. We would like to have the IPLA on board with us as one of the sponsors/co-hosts. How do we join the IPLA and how do we get the IPLA to sanction the event. We need ideas quick. Thanks for your help.

ffd708, I'll answer your questions in order.

1: You're already in the IPLA.

2: Just call it an IPLA meet. Every member is allowed to do so.

As for the cannon competition, thet seems a little overboard. In my opinion (and the opinions of most here), it's more fun to simply grab a few dozen spuds, meet with your friends and have fun making noise and sending potatoes out of sight.
