Well it’s that time of year again. Time to start saving your pennies and vacation time for the Texas RottFest ™.
June 9th-12th. Thursday-Sunday. Those dates are just for the main frivolities. If you want to show up earlier or stay later, you are of course welcome to do so.
We have some room in the house for those who are seriously pinching pennies, and there are hotels close by for those that need some extra peace and quiet. We also have yardage for those who want to bring tents or even RV’s, and we also have a good sized tent if anyone wishes to make use of it.
Those that will drive, need to holler out so anyone that needs to hitch a ride can hook up with you. Those that have a need to get felt up can fly into DFW or Dallas Love and we will make sure you get picked up.
Shooting range action is a bit iffy. We don’t have any large ranges close by. The best one being over in Dallas, but we will see what we can work out. The one we used last year was close by, but small and packed to the nines.
Anyone that has questions just ask away and I or those who are Fest Veterans will give you what info you need.
Those that have attended in the past know the drill. Those that haven’t…what the hell are you waiting for???
Well…we got our tax return back and I should be getting a bonus, too. If I can convince Mrs. LucysDaddy to let me go (which should not be too big a problem), I will be coming. If I do get the go-ahead, I will more than likely be renting a car and driving down. Any Rotts in between Findlay, Ohio… Read more »
If I send one of y’all my brother’s address, would you be able to tell me how far away you are? If I come down, he’d have to drive me (and I’d need a hotel close to him), but I’ve never been there and don’t know the area.

Lucy’sDaddy…the more the merrier. We’ll be looking forward to having you join the festivities.
Response to Lady M-ITT™-Imperial Sniper G.L.O.R @:
And I think he might be on the east side of Dallas. Map would be good. Thanks.
LOL…actually the pot is sitting all clean and shiny in the garage patiently waiting for you. I vote for the chili….I can make my Mexican Shredded Beef for tacos and we can just make a Heartburn Buffet for everyone to partake of. Tums, Pepto, and Pepcids optional.
If I am not on our annual Boy Scout campout, I’ll be there. Which range did you use last year? Hopefully, it wasn’t Alpine — those guys are always too crowded, too expensive, and too much of a PIA to deal with.
ah… I cleaned my mailbox and lost the address, cause I’m a goober. can I get a new copy?
LC Roguetek says:
Check your email.
THe plan was to make to this year, but with the pending new arrival I need to save the pennies for time the wife will be off work and any curveballs the pregnancy may toss us. Have some fun for me.
I’m going to need a distraction about that time, and this just might be the ticket. I’ll be coming in from Nawth Cacalaki if anyone needs a lift. I have three other seats in the pony, and the trip will be made topless (weather permitting). GLOR’s of the hawtness kind have first dibs. 😉 I’d like to reserve some yard… Read more »

A cherry? Holy f*ck, this is going to be SO much fun this year! Mrs M: Did we get the Crisco and the other stuff restocked from last year?
two cherries this year, gods willing. Fair warning, I fuck back.
Misha sez- Holy f*ck, this is going to be SO much fun this year! Mrs M: Did we get the Crisco and the other stuff restocked from last year? Nice try, DJ, but by now everyone knows about how we never see The Emperor™ and the DJ in the same room. Kinda like Bruce Wayne and Stuporman, only different. Next… Read more »

Sadly, it looks like finances are again going to prevent me from joining the Rottfest. Being retired gives you more time, but less money. I will sit here in Colorado watching the news for bulletins about mayhem in the DFW area over that weekend, and of course read the ….. abridged to protect the guilty …. after-action reports. LC Subotai… Read more »
I know I ‘ve been banned since last years “unfortunate incident”, but pretty pretty please can I attend if I promise not to kill anything (not even a range)?
Well, scratch NJ off my list of places to visit. Heck, don’t even drive through NJ on the way to Rottfest http://www.app.com/article/20110213/NJOPINION06/102130335/DOES-NEW-JERSEY-NEED-EVEN-TIGHTER-GUN-CONTROL-Abusive-gun-laws-make-felons-of-state-s-law-abiding-citizens
LC TerribleTroy says:
Oh I suppose Troy. But only if you bring DOG with you this time.
Emperor Misha I says:
I’m afraid to ask.
Has it been a year already? I’m waiting for my grand kid to show up, but that isn’t until the end of July, and I just found out today that my son will be based in Ft. Lewis, Washington, so I think I can spare a few vacation days. Gotta fly, train takes 46 hours, same with driving, and I’d… Read more »
LC LittleRott84 Imperial DJ says:
It’s for the pie and cake baking contest.
Schedule permitting I will make it this year. Mrs M I had the address but lost it when the Laptop died.
Can you send it to me at olddog at olddog.name, I would be grateful.
Lady M-ITT™-Imperial Sniper G.L.O.R says:
Oh man. This is going to be GOOD!
LC LittleRott84 Imperial DJ says:
You don’t have to be. We’re gentlemen. Mostly. Besides, you’re not a cherry.
LC TerribleTroy says:
Could you try to aim for something that nobody would miss this time? Such as a liberal?
Is Rurik gonna show?
Maybe three cherries. The airfare’s affordable, any suggestions on a cheap hotel?
My leave is approved, and I’m sleeping in the armory again.
And I’ll be on the bike again, cuz Aggie said she wanted a ride. Shut up! I meant on the bike!
Response to LC cmblake6, Imperial Black Ops Technician @:
POLL is rigged. All you have to do is use it. Go look in the dashboard. Y’know, ‘sfunny. I could almost swear I spelled “poll” correctly. In fact, I’m pretty sure I did, because as I was reading it after posting, I was noting how you almost couldn’t see the second “l” for the close-parentheses. And, given that you mis-spelled… Read more »
Wield that pole as you see fit Darth, ‘looks like it was a gift.
We’ll ebay it for beer later.
As of now….HH6 and I are planning to come. Hopefully, I will not have any conflicts with my Medical Board. And if I CAN make it, I am gonna bring toys….oh yes….tricked out TOYS!!!
Toys that make the ATF weep…./giggle
Response to Darth Venomous @:
Keep y’hands n’ feet clear if Mope’s there.
I think he growed his own Sam Adams tattoo..
Response to LC LittleRott84 Imperial DJ @:
Just picked up a Mosin, haven’t even put anything through it yet. The Arisaka T30 shoots high and to the right, the Saiga has been centered in nicely. All three cases fit in the Mustang’s trunk with enough room left over for the tent, sleeping bag and air mattress (shut up, I’m too damn old to be sleeping on the… Read more »
Cheap-ster- Keep y’hands n’ feet clear if Mope’s there. You ain’t got to worry about your feet- it’s mine that can kill at 100 yards. Actually, this is kind of a logistical nightmare for me, being that it is part of my birthmonth. I got to sober up long enough to renew my driver’s license. Then drive for like 16… Read more »
Aw hell, I’m oot. At least I remembered that’s my anniversary weekend before I mentioned the trip to The Wife. Guess I’ll just get drunk here and burn something on the barbecue.
Sentry says: At least I remembered that’s my anniversary weekend Anniversary Weekend? Weekend? As in two whole days? Really? Bring her with you, there are plenty of things in the DFW area that are romantical (if ya gotta go there). There’s Daly Plaza & the Grassy Knoll, pretty sure there’s a rodeo. Whats more romantic than the “adventure” of meeting… Read more »
Just a quick hello ! As I am NOT supposed to be on this thing…… Glad to see all are here and well, (de postal serbice SUCKS!! Hint !!!!) My e-mail has been jacked and I still am on the north side of Ft Worth. (Aggie has all the particulars) I should be back on-line Monday… And ready to kick… Read more »
Response to LC LOBO @
Glad to hear from you LOBO, hope everything is going good for you
Good to see your name, Lobo…very good. It made me smile……hope you’re OK…..from one who’s been there…..
I would be going but hubby is getting back earlier than expected from Crapganistan. I’ll be there in spirit!
Southwest Airlines will be transporting me to the Lone Star state that week. My little brother’s birthday is the 8th, so I told him I’ll come down and see him. Good Lord willing and the creek don’t rise, I should be able to stop in at the Rottfest Friday through Saturday. I can’t do all four days.
