Can you imagine the assembly line we could get going with masses of maillers?! We could pass the longest chain record within an hour! Coif LoL


I've been doing a lot of abstract painting lately, extremely abstract. No brush, no paint, no canvas. I just think about it.

There was a thread some time ago where we were talking about taking over the National Mall in DC and turning it into a massive renaissance encampment complete with trebuchets. Sadly that thread has fallen off the bottom of the chat board. On the other hand if you?re serious about doing this you really should check out the Higgins Armory. I put a link in a previous post. They do rent out the museum for private functions. I can think of no better venue for this type of event. And not just because it?s convenient for me. Actually, there?s a place that?s even more convenient for me and might be less expensive than some of the more fanciful suggestions. They even have ?castle ruins? on the grounds. The Gibbet Hill Grill at 61 Lowell Road in Groton, Massachusetts. I tried to link a map (in hybrid mode) centered on the Gibbet Hill Grill but it didn?t go where I wanted. Google maps is great, but it does have its limits...

DQ, love the sig! I?ve modified it just a touch myself. Here?s a sample:

I know what you're thinking. Did he fire six shots or only five? Well, to tell you the truth, in all this excitement, I've kinda lost track myself. But being as this is a Baical Drozd Bumble Bee, the only fully automatic CO2 powered .177 BB gun in the world which just happens to load thirty, and would blow your eye clean out, you've got to ask yourself one question: Do I feel lucky? Well, do ya punk?

Teehee! I so want one. I have this idea for a mod that will let it load a hopper full. Very Happy

If you want to attract attention and with it, funds, why don't you "sell" the event as an attempt at a world record for longest chain/biggest sculpture etc, and charge a modest entry fee? In a big venue you could bring in a fair amount of people, and you could also sell your own goods at the same time, Very Happy


What's upside outside?

I have a small amount of experience in this area, and I know a number of people who have much.

If held in Oregon I may know of a few sites.

That's assuming this idea hasn't been abandoned.
