Title: Any activities planned?
Post by: average_shooter on January 08, 2006, 09:43:06 pm
I was just wondering if there are any activities planned for PorcFest '06 yet.  I have an idea for a small group activity, but if the schedule is full then I'll leave it at that.  Or, are there not going to be any officially planned activities?  I guess I've been out of the loop for a while and I'm not sure what the format is for '06.

I hope to burn a UN flag :)  I'd also like to burn a FEMA flag.  Getting drunk is always on my list, and I'm hoping for more  ;D

There is always room for small events. The busiest time for porcfest will be that first weekend.
Title: Re: Any activities planned?
Post by: lloydbob1 on January 09, 2006, 09:14:04 am
And...there will be plenty of U.N. flags to burn.
Title: Re: Any activities planned?
Post by: Bald Eagle on January 09, 2006, 11:12:01 pm
There is sure to be a few shooting events.  I've got to consult with some other people on the details, and then I will get back to y'all on that.

I'd like to see a small fireworks show, maybe to follow-up Poker Face if they play again.

I'm all for flag burning - maybe we'll spice a few of the flags up with some nitrates or something... :D

Then of course there is beer.  I think that event should run from 6/23 thru 7/1.  Bring lots of chips and peanuts.  We should erect some sort of structure built from the empty beer cans as the week progresses :)

I was too wasted to make it happen last year; but, I will work hard to make sure that Jon plays us his freedom song at the 2006 Porcfest.

I guess I was thinking more along the lines of "family activities," which people of pretty much any age can legally enjoy.  Things like going to the shooting range and nature hikes quallify, binge drinking does not.  Though nitrate-infused flag burning sounds like great fun...
Title: Re: Any activities planned?
Post by: Russell Kanning on January 10, 2006, 05:53:39 am
Ignoring "legalities" is part of porcfest.
There are hikes to be had. One must visit is the lookout tower nearby. Weeks State Park? You can drive to the top or walk and it had great views on a sunny day.
I didn't drink any alcohol or do any shooting last year and I had fun.

I'll be contributing arms and ammo and instruction to any shooting events that take place. (I'll let others bring targets. UN flags and blue helmets are always appropriate.)

We'll be spending our 10 (or so) days in-state doing a lot of town reconnaissance, but we'll try to work in the organized activities, too. We want to make a hike or two, and a drive up Mount Washington. We want to finally meet the friends we already know, and those we don't yet know.

Most of all, we want to breathe deeply of Freedom, and we figure it smells best in the fresh air of the White Mountains.

The aforementioned "fresh air" hanging heavy with beer, barbecue, and gunpowder (as well as the occasional illicit substance), would only enhance the scent of Liberty. The whiff of freshly-printed Bureacrash shirts will just be lagniappe.

As for the morning icechest... I'm an old pro. One of my Theta Chi brothers (Eta Sigma chapter) had the gall to point out that this year marks the 25th annual "Richland Rampage"; this makes me feel very old, since I was present at the very first Rampage. Since our chapter is no longer active, Richland is an alumni campout/party/reliving-our-youth event. (Or, as my wife says, 40 middle aged guys staying drunk and burning meat for a week. As if the distinction matters. Whatever.)

Having decades of experience (even if it's just a few days at a time), I have to admit the wisdom of the 24/24 rule: "24 hours in a day, 24 beers in a case. Coincidence? I think not!" If I'm camping out with my brothers, no cares, no worries, then having a bloody mary with a big breakfast, then popping my first top by 10 a.m., is perfectly reasonable.

Maybe I need to teach PatK some lessons.  ;D

I was in Belize a while back and asked for Tea with my breakfast.  They had no tea.  I asked for OJ.  They had no OJ.  I asked for apple juice.  They had no apple juice.  So I said Fuck it I will have a beer.  The waiter said if you drink beer with breakfast then you drink for free.  It was a long day. ;D ;D

My great-grandfather had a saying whenever someone offered him a beer: "no thanks, pour mine back in the horse."  The only beer I've ever been able to stomach the taste of was Franziskaner.  A bit ironic considering my sig line, but I'll take liquor over beer any day.

Um, you guys ARE aware that they make some really good coffee-flavored beers that will naturally have caffeine in them, don't you?  Cap City used to have a brew called "Fuel."  

As for going to bed at sunrise and then resuming drinking by 10 am, it's not that there are better men, it's that there are more of them.  It's called teamwork.  Ya drink in shifts and the woosies who passed out early drag the still-sleeping girly-men out of their tents and loudly insult their manhood until the first beer is emptied.  Thus balance is preserved and Nature's cycle of drinking, eating, urinating, and sleeping begins afresh.

Having recently visited cousins behind communist New Jersey's Iron Curtain, I can see wisdom in Brontus' preference for liquor.  After a bit of JD, I was introduced to the delights of BlackJacks.  A little over half Jack Daniels and a little under half of blackberry brandy.  I think we polished off 3/4 of the bottle of JD.  Though "The only beer I've ever been able to stomach the taste of was Franziskaner." makes me wonder if he's ever tried nectars such as Fuller's ESB, or Sam Smith's Nut Brown Ale.

And what's this "breakfast?"  You're supposed to gorge yourself with enough greasy burgers, gyros, salty fries, and snack food the night before that the body is well supplied with nourishment until it's time for the first truly proper meal of the day - lunch.

I quit drinking Jack many years ago and found that I no longer get black eyes or busted knuckels.

I even resisted temptation at last Porc fest when Tim Condon gave me a very large bottle of Jack to hold as we drove around the campground rallying Porcs to the circle of liberty.

Funny, because I do live behind the Garden Curtain.  But I don't touch Jack any more after I drank half a liter of it on my 21st birthday and got sick.  I'll take a little scotch now and then but no more Tennessee whiskey for me.  I stick mostly to rum and So.Co. now.  I haven't had ESB or Nut Brown Ale, could you describe the falvor to me?  Part of my problem is that my friends love to drink the cheap garbage like Coors and Blue Ribbon.  But I tried another German wheat beer based on the fact that I liked Franziskaner, but I didn't like that at all.

Breakfast is last nights stack food that you're still eating, or has been replentished over the night.  I've got fond memories of having parties where we drank for 4 hours, then walked to the convience store for hoagies, came back and then ate the hoagies and finished off whatever alcohol we had left.

Hey y'all.  Just wanted to let you know that I'm not ignoring either this thread or any emails that might have come my way in the last week.  I've been out of town (still am, actually), and have had about a second and a half to get online.  Rest assured, when I get back home I'll spend the weekend going through the forum and my email accounts and getting back to everyone. 

On this particular topic, I'm quite open to activity ideas, and would be more than happy to take suggestions.  Get posting. ;)

UN flag burning
FEMA flag burning
A few shooting events
A small fireworks show
Nature hikes
Cooking

Can we build a big hot-air balloon with the FSP porcupine on it and send it up at night?  I think a nice magnesium flare to provide the heat ought to light it up real well too   8)

I'm thinking we might be able to build a big cube with white tarps, wire, and duct tape, and I've got some calculations left over from a more conventional spherical hot air balloon I was going to construct from newspaper.

This just sucks.  I missed it last year because I like to drink and am going to miss it this year because I will not be there.

Hey Michael, and this is not at all selfish, really... ::)
Could you lead that on Monday or something?  Most people will be getting there Friday afternoon, (I think) so there will not be many people to go with you.  You know, the activities are after the weekend, this time.  So, if you want a better turnout, I suggest Monday morning.
Title: Re: Any activities planned?
Post by: kater on February 21, 2006, 07:16:14 am
The hike is definitely on the agenda. ;)  Thanks, Michael.  As for the timing, I'll let you guys duke that out, although I do agree that, with our shift to the full program on the first weekend, turnout is likely to be lower overall for Friday morning.

Yeah, because I got a Myspace Invite to the FSP Porcfest 2006 and it said that it starts at noon on Friday.  Now, maybe it starts before that but I will not be able to be there until after  :(

I don't think a change is necessary.  We will kick off officially that night, so noon sounds fine.  At this point, I'd encourage Michael and Janice to consider switching the hike to Monday (or another convenient day).  It's pretty popular, and I'd hate for folks to miss it.

I'm definitely up for doing some shooting.  

I'm coming from Toronto and I'm not sure yet if I'll be bringing my own firearms -- the paperwork for getting them over the border can be a bit daunting.  If there's a club-sponsored "shooting event" that I can get an invitation to (PPC or IPSC event, pistol/rifle match, that kinda thing), then it's easier

Without studying the 2006 schedule, I assumed since Friday has always worked in the past it would be good this time. My oversight--I am so sorry! (I promise to work on my impulse-control problem.)

Unfortunately, we've already booked flights and made other arrangements, consequently rescheduling would not work for us. However, if you wish to schedule a second Mt. Liberty hike on Monday, we won't feel insulted. Since it's a highlight of the Porc Fest, the more Mt. Liberty hikes the merrier. Let the free market work its magic!

I am sure that there will be plenty of firearms for people to shoot.
Title: Re: Any activities planned?
Post by: Bald Eagle on March 01, 2006, 11:14:24 pm
If last year was any indication, there ought to plenty of firearms to shoot.
Cramming the schedule with daily shooting events helped raise people's awareness to the fact that there is an adequate free shooting range just down the road from the campsite, and so many people expressed enthusiastic interest in bringing firearms to PF'06.

Unless you have something special to bring, I would recommend saving any money involved in transporting, transferring, or purchasing firearms for targets, ammunition, and incidentals (target stands, tape, staples, etc) once you get there. :)

If anyone has a shot timer, chronograph, or any other specialty equipment, please bring it along!
The majority of shooting events are informal, so if you have a shooting event that you'd like to run, PLEASE contact me or the PF'06 event planners to tell them so!  We can use as many people to coordinate events, procure equipment (targets, stands, ammo), give rides, give instruction, and act as Range Safety Officers as possible!

It's not a big deal. I know people who check firearms every time they fly (and they fly a lot!)

TSA pretty well has its act together from recent reports. (Well... so far as checking firearms is concerned.) The airline people at the check-in counter sometimes have to be educated, though.

Scroll down here for a list of links about flying with firearms:

http://www.packing.org/airlines/

Check this page for updates, and print it out before flying:

http://www.tsa.gov/public/display?content=09000519800ac232

Then do the same with your airline's rules for checking firearms.

Along with Varrin, candidate for Governor Richard Kahn has made a commitment to join us on 6/23.

Since the mountain can hold at least 200 Porcupines, signing up in advance is not required. However if you wish to inform us of your intentions, we would be interested.

Hey Michael....luv ya dude...but I quit smoking D

Great news, Dave! Your lungs are probably in good shape by now.

Why not at least attempt the Mt. Liberty challenge? No need to make it to the top. As with building liberty, the path and the successes along the way are what counts.

It's a terrific opportunity within a gorgeous setting to meet new Porcs and get to know others better with no extra charge for the exercise!

Best, Michael

That guy who almost walked to P'fest the year before last, drove, hit the moose, can handle that program.

Oh man...I remember that guy...Yikes. He had a tough week.

All are welcome to come on The Third Annual Mt. Liberty Hike on Friday 23 June. There's no requirement you hike all the way to the summit.

--William Wallace

"[Mt.] Liberty is always dangerous, but it is the safest thing we have."
--H.E. Fosdick

"Life without [Mt.] Liberty is like a body without a spirit."
--Kahlil Gibran

"[Mt.] Liberty means freedom from government."
--Ludwig von Mises

"Dear is Country, but [Mt.] Liberty is dearer still."
