Stats for Boomershoot 2007

End of the year roundup on things:

  • There are only two slots left and they are in the .50 Caliber Ghetto
  • There is a waiting list of four teams (six people) for the smaller caliber area some of whom claimed .50 Caliber Ghetto slots
  • There are 110 shooters signed up
  • There are, on the average, 1.62 shooters per position
  • Excluding the targets consumed in the Precision Rifle Clinic (full since November 8th with a waiting list) on the average there will probably be 6.5 targets per shooter
  • Excluding the Precision Rifle Clinic targets there will be on the average 10.5 targets per shooting position
  • Excluding the Precision Rifle Clinic targets there will be on the average 21.4 pounds of explosives per per shooting position
  • Excluding the Precision Rifle Clinic targets there will be on the average 13.2 pounds of explosives per shooter
  • The average price paid per paying shooter (staff not counted) would buy only about 7.5 pounds of Tannerite (see also Target Master exploding targets) at list price in case quantity
  • The smallest targets for Boomershoot 2007 will have three times the explosive charge of the largest targets at Boomershoot 2000
  • If we use the same number of targets as last year we will consume over 1600 pounds of explosives (see More boom in the boomers)
  • Assuming no unexpected expenses and an comparable level of participation then Boomershoot 2008 (a year or more from now) will be enable me to pay off the last of the debt on the construction of the Taj Mahal
