Default April 27th battleday in SE PA

I'm planning on having a battleday at my place in West Grove, Pa April 27th if anyone would like drop by. We'll start around 10 and go till whenever (have outdoor lighting.) Will probably order out for lunch
and I'll cook something up for dinner. There is plenty of floor space in the finished basement and one guest bedroom if anyone doesn't want to do a long trip home late at night. If your interested post up or PM me for details and/or directions andso people can see who's coming and it'll give me a head count for food, drink, possible sleeping arrangements, etc. Hope to see some new faces and some old cannon fodder!

Interested. l can see if i can coax the boys into constructing a building or two if your interested.

Since we have some extr tanks we might be able to bring a NOOB or two. Though being a teen they probably will catch on quickly.

I plan on coming and will poll the NEAD members. I see that you have already made a formal invite on our group Brett, thank you. For those who have not been to Bretts yet he and Tony have labored intensely and made a battlefield with a varied terrain. We had a fine time there last October. We also ran RC cars and gtrucks both electric and gas....what a pisser. Is this an ACE event Brett or just thru the courtesy of Benson hospitality? I would love to get a fromal ACE/NEAD event either by you or in the northern DelMarVA area.

Bret, sorry I can't make it. Daryl and I have already committed to the head of the IPMS event. And it's only fair to show up as they have printed it in their flyers, promos, etc... But I hope you will have something in the future as it's a much easier drive then Danville ( and less expensive ). Maybe do an ACE sponsored event, but we can talk about that later. I don't know if Jake would come up to your place, but he is coming to the model show/demo in Fairfax, VA. But I know we could get him there. Willy, boy he'll drive anywhere, any distance, any weather just to hang, RC and pound a few.

Good luck on your battle.

Yup, wish I could come down and help out with the show Bill. Hopefully after we get in a schedule with the new addition to the family I'll have a full weekend A.C.E fun run this fall. That'll make it a little easierfor Jake and Willy to come up and stay a couple nights.

Damn Jim, just can't get on the same page with you. Guess I'll have to consult you first on dates next time I schedule one of these things.

Right now we're sitting at 8-10 tankers, so we'll definitely have enough for 4 on 4 at the least. I'll have 2-3 tanks on deck for people to borrow and battle with.

Glad to hear you'll be able to make it Richard. I think we're at 10-12 tankers with a couple more on the fence if they can make it.

The NEAD guys will be there in force Brett. Thanks again for the gracious invitation. I am reminding the guys to bring tables, chairs and drinks since last time we packed out your workshop in short order. I'm sure you have filled it a little more over the winter. Can't wait to see that RC field you made. I will bring as many buildings as I can, Bob

Hey Bob, you have the date listed as 5/27/13 on yahoo groups, so we'll have to make sure everyone knows the real date.
I saw it and knew if that was it I wouldnt be able to go but with it being April, I'm good.

We're still on for the 27th. Just keep your fingers crossed on the weather. I'll make the call Thursday night/Friday morning if we're going to be rained out and cancel the event so people can make other plans for that Saturday. Looking forward to seeing everyone and I'll have the bazooka team ready to try out on the battlefield.

We're on for this Saturday fella's! Looks like the weather is going to hold off for us....for now. Tony and I got some battlefield maintence done this past saturday and all the batts have
been charged for the outdoor lights. If you still need my address or directions feel free to email or PM me. Start time is 10 A.M. and we'll go till whenever. I'm going to order sub's for lunch and cook up
some lasagna, salad, and garlic bread for dinner. I'll have some water, soda, and adult beverages in the cooler but feel free to bring any of your favorites to drink. Looking forward to it.

Bret
