    The 4th annual Meet will be October 12-14. I WILL BE POSTING UP ALL THE IMPORTANT INFO IN THIS THREAD. Cost will be around $50 for the weekend that includes a Tshirt.

    FYI we may have a cooperate event the day before this Meet starts. If that is the case Summit Lake should be available to camp at on the 11th for those who get here early.

    #1 If you guys want to have Tom Lutyens do a one day class he is willing to do it. This will be above and beyond any fees that 88 Tactical charges for the Meet. I will be helping Tom with this class as well. Depending on the number of folks that want this will determine the cost. Tom is on a fixed income and it takes money to travel. A ballpark cost will be $50 to $75 bucks for a day of instruction. FYI that is dirt cheap for a guy of Toms caliber.

    #2 If any Vendors or other folks want to donate gear let me know. Bushcraft Outfitters will gear to give away and gear for sale.

    #3 Food plan- In years past there has been people cooking for the group in the evenings. This has always been a large undertaking. If it happens again we will start a planning thread in the ** Tactical Sub Forum.

    #4 Post class subject suggestions in this thread. We have had some great classes in the past. Let us know what you would like to see. If you guys want firearms classes or open range time speak up.


    I was thinking about doing a couple of hour class on living out of you PSK. If Tom teaches a class I will roll it into his class as well.

    This is going to be the 5th Anniversary!
    I would be in for a side class with Tom and you. And Chief if my friend is going to be there also. Cost don't matter to me.

    Putting in a vacation request now! If you are going to camp at Summit Lake SRA bring some earplugs. Last couple of times I have camped there has been noisy - lots of loud cows in the area. If anyone coming early wants to see Father Flanagan's Boys Home / Boystown, just let me know.

    Looks like I'm going to be shakin and bakin this year. IACP is the weekend before. I'll get back on Tuesday night and leave for Nebraska on Thursday or Friday.

    I'm in on the class and Bosapah may or may not be coming. I'll in for the meal plans and I'm planning on cooking discada. I just don't know if I can cook enough for everyone. I guess that will depend on how many attend.

    I am hoping that @IA Woodsman ‘s father-in-law makes a batch of discadas so I can buy one and help out.

    Land navigation would be something that I am interested it for a class.

    FoxLite Gear can donate some gear for the event. Do we send to @Kurt992 or @IA Woodsman in advance or just bring with us?

    This will be my first time attending An event like this. Any suggestions on a gear list or just my normal camping stuff?

    Your normal camping stuff will work.

    I would go to the 88 Tactical vendor forum and check out the threads from previous meets. This will be much the same.

    I am looking forward to this! Work has been pretty rough lately.

    I got the t-shirts to prove it.

    I'm in, assuming the gods smile. They haven't recently, so we're overdue.

    Gonna start working on a new batch of lies.
