It was a lot of fun last year to fire a number of guns in succession.

No response?

Tomorrow I will pick a day. I am going to try out the Pyroboom R1200 control box this year.

Lets go with Sunday March 22? 2 PM Central time-3 PM Eastern, 1 PM Mountain, 12 Noon Western.

For those who don't know every year we ring in the Spring...no matter the weather, get out your cannon or cannons Set them up and shoot! Fire one shot or make it an afternoon of shooting. fire blanks, ball or firecracker what ever you want.

Break up the winter doldrums, wipe of the cobwebs, get your gun out and shoot. Make sure you take lots of pictures.

And remember if you are shooting a gun, the command is FIRE! Fire in the hole is to signal for explosives to be detonated, we don't do that here.

I was originally supposed to be traveling to Japan during that weekend for work, but the Coronavirus put the kibosh on that trip. So I might be able to work this in.

All of the Brooks' will be here on the 22nd at 3 PM ready to light the fuse. May have to fire from the drive way. My Grizzly is stuck in the snow half way to the firing range. Long trek for anyone in this snow.

I'm in. My new golf ball mortar and if I find a volunteer to help lift, my full size 12pdr coehorn.

I won't be wronged. I won't be insulted. I won't be laid a-hand on. I don't do these things to other people, and I require the same from them.
