That is the stupidest date to have a battle day on ....I'm sorry to go off on this one but I would like to have a vote on changing this battle day to the following weekend due to the fact thanks giving is a very famaly orientated week end and also to have a good turn out I suggest the following weekend after so more will be in attendance

I'd probably vote for the following weekend, though be less "in your face" about it.  I'm pretty sure my 3 compatriots in Hamilton will be passing on the 12th due to family commitments, and the 5th one you guys have not yet met will be coming down but has to be gone by 1:30 due, again, to thanksgiving weekend commitments.

anyone with a lot of extended family will often find themselves occupied all 3 days of the weekend. so i agree that we could see a fairly significant hit to attendance on this one.

Thank you, we are not typically an "in your face" type forum.

I did not set the schedule.

We have had it that weekend in October since the club began, it is a hold over from a former organizer; it was not considered to be a problem in past years.

It was pointed out to me and I thought I would put it out there, after a PM with Stince, to determine how it would work for the present membership.

I saw at the beginning of the season that it fell on Thanksgiving. Interesting it has not been an issue in the past... I have 3 families to touch base with on that weekend so I for one will be unable to attend.

We are looking at our options, next weekend is tight for meet, close to the last one.

If we go with the 19th, we are getting into colder weather and it puts it 2 weeks before the scheduled November meet, which could be in jeopardy if it gets pushed back.
 
November is usually a bonus meet as we've only had weather good one year, so October could be the last one for the year.


The options are being considered and the results will be posted.

I can't remember what happened in years past... in any event I think folks are ok with a date change considering the holiday. No problems on my end.
As always flexibility is our strength here guys Smile

Well last year it was schedule for Thanksgiving weekend but because of the weather it was cancelled it was pushed back 2 weeks. Even then the weather was still questionable, with only 6 tankers showing up.

The months of October and November are petty much a "crap shoot" because of the weather.
So we may have to go with what Mother Nature gives us and if you can make, the great!

That would explain why it wasn't an issue last year! Razz

Well I say and its just a suggestion the weekend befor or weekend after thanks giving only because then you potentially have 2 weekends to work around the weather and if persay it is the last outdoor meet atleast we can have a good attendance with out people being committed to thanksgiving ...I'm personally eschewed for that weekend only because of the sheer intake of food at my house ....I'm Gona need a craine to moove my self I get so fat and bloted I some what abuse my self to the fullest extents

Sorry but I can't attend Thanksgiving weekend. I hate Turkey but I still get dragged off to family events that in the past seemed to outweigh even the flu.
I will have to wait and see if you guys decide to change the date.

Actually, where I work, that's just fairly normal conversation Shocked  (I LOVE my job Wink  )

It is an accomplishment in woods craft and patience to get close enough to take a wild turkey with a bow.

Update:


I'm working on the battle day pics today (all day) and they will be posted on the web site tonight. You will also see August pics (sorry for the delay) along with very cool Military Muster pics too.

August should be done in the next 20 mins with Sept. in about an hour after that.
