    wait... what???
    I'm trying to set up a ZZ Bird shoot for the Grasslands BBQ on May 21. I need to understand how many people will be interested in doing this. It's looks like it will be more expensive than I had hoped, currently $2.50/bird. Minimum round is 10 birds, so you're looking at $25. I'm trying to work a deal but that may not happen. I try to keep this event very friendly on everyone's wallet, but this has some exciting possibilities so I thought I'd find out about it.

    I'm told it's very exciting and simulates the flight of a live bird. I think it'd be a real hoot to be able to have this event at the BBQ and I'm sure both gunners and observers will have a great time, but need to know if there is enough interest from those planning to attend to make it worth setting up for those with the gear.

    Here's a link to a site with some info on the sport:

    Please post up if you are planning on attending the BBQ AND you are willing to pay to play. I hope this works out, I'm sure it'll be fun and I'm going to try it myself in 2 weeks.

    I'm game. I'll miss most of them... but I'm perfectly willing to see what it's like.

    Mike, Looking forward to the event. I will probably let you torture a couple of the boys, Mike for sure and probably Chris while I just sit back and enjoy the show.
    Take Care,
    Jesse

    I've never shot anything like that before. Do they shoot them for money ?.

    I'll be there Mike with two others. I'd do a round, I'm sure Doug would as well. As far the kid goes......he'd better pony up. Don't bet on that one.

    Be aware of "Ringers"
