I almost have the last of the supplies for Boomershoot 2004. I may need a few more stakes to mount the targets on and I know I need to buy a 100 or so brown paper lunch sacks. I won’t know about the stakes until Sunday when I do an inventory. This Sunday May 1st we will also start manufacturing the first targets. We will be testing new tools and techniques for mass production. Then on Thursday May 6th with the methods prefected some we will finish off the targets needed for Friday. Friday things will open with booms and fireballs (I hope). It is always my fear the targets will be duds on the day of the event. But it has always been just a fear, sort of like Ry’s nightmares, more imagination than reality. We are changing things again this year. We have new containers for the targets, a new target mounting method, a new shooting position, and a new mixing process. We think everything is an improvement, but one never knows until we do the actual event.
Oh, one last item that is isn’t in place, but I am assured will be soon is that my generator still hasn’t come back from the repair shop. Friday morning they said it would be done that day, but they never called back. I’ll call them today to see what the status is. I have a backup plan if it doesn’t come through but one is always concerned when you are running on backups — there is no room for errors.
