Rottfest Texas 2014!

Ok, it’s official.

ROTTFEST TEXAS 2014!

Those of you have been to a Rottfest Texas know what it means.

Those who haven’t, we pity you (but not much).

Fellowship.  Guns.  Booze.  Swimming pool.  Texas BBQ.  Heat.  Sweat.  Conservatism.

June 13-15, Benbrook, Texas.  Donations appreciated for food, etc.  Range day and more.

RSVP.  BYOB.

We will strongly advise the Emperor to attend…or go kidnap him and bring him against his protests.  This could be your year to become knights as a Knight of the Empire!

Anyone who treats this as an OPEN THREAD will be smacked down by the Imperial flying monkeys™.

That is all.

I wish I could go but the trip is a bit much, and bringing my friends that go bang would be a problem. To many Nazi style states for me to drive through. Then there is the problem of actually being able to take the time. :'( At least my Ruger is back from the factory after it broke. I’m… Read more »

Man… I want to go SO bad! I have more than 250 hours of leave I need to burn through, so I’ve got the time. Just need the money. I’m going to check ticket prices. What’s the closest airport?

A four hour drive for me – I live in the Tulsa area.

Sounds great – more details, please.

What’s the closest airport?

One that handles planes or brooms?

Ducks and runs….

I’ll start putting back wampum for it now. Since I am too old mature for sleeping on the ground any more, approx. what are the “reasonable” rates of the motels in the area?

Those that can or will drive, consider putting out the word for those Rotties whom transportation is their only road block to see if there is some sharing rides that can happen. We… Read more »

DEATH TO ALL INDOOR RANGES!

Maybe in Texas, but in New Hampshire, in winter, with 2 feet of globull worming on the ground? Outdoor ranges tend to be unreachable, never mind unusable.
Also indoor ranges have this wonderful thing in winter called “Heat.” :em07:

Looking at Ye Old Calendar I think I can make it, though it is a maybe at this point depending on airfare and/or folks from the Northeast that may want to share a ride.

So anyone from Pennsylvania or north of here that can meet me here, or south of here I can pick up want to share a ride?

In addition to the BBQ…y’all want chili or stew this year?

Speaking of flying, I think I may be finally making an appearance. I will need detailed directions and possibly even grid coordinates. I don’t think I will be driving all the way, but I will rent a car once I land. If we and some others time it just right, we could all share the car. Don’t worry, I will… Read more »

Quick question: can any Rott come, even us long time lurkers? If I can put the funds together Id SO love to meet everyone….and get to go to my favorite never been to spot, Texas!

Sitting out here in a lone outpost of the Empire, I could really use some leave to recharge. I’ve been absent because my tank of outrage just ran low. I’ll have to check some things out.

Natasha, the timing is looking doable for me and I will be flying into Love Field instead of DFW (my frequent flier miles are with Southwest!) I’d be arriving probably Thursday night or early Friday morning.

Hey, Nat! if we decide to do it, let’s coordinate our flights and share the cost of a rental car! Thoughts?

Troy, I’d love to go, but I’m here in Spokane with Igor, and as he says, it’s a bit(ch) of a commute. Also, my June Vacation time starts the 15th. Still … The range goes out to a thousand yards? Is there one for rifles, too, or is it just the pistols?

LC Sir M – Imperial Tobacconist™, K.o.E. @ #:

We are not members there, so we will not have access to the 300, 400, 500 and 1000 yard ranges. We shoot rain or shine.

Question, could you call ahead, say Tuesday and make some sort of arrangement for the longer distance ranges?

LC Sir M – Imperial Tobacconist™, K.o.E. says:

Pretty much anything else goes, including NFA items. We’ll still be able to shoot on the 100 and 200 yard rifle ranges and have access to tactical pistol/shotgun bays with target stands and reactive steel.

What is this Rottfest you speak of? How do you play? Can you teach me to drink heavily? Dancing girls? Gambling?

Most importantly, will there be real beers?

Or maybe this is a recruiting tool?

That sounds like a Steak and Shake only different.

9mm M, and she gobbles up any cheap crap you wanna feed her, although the cyclic rate will fluctuate, especially when shooting 40 year old Egyptian surplus SMG ammo. brrrrrp-chug-a-chug-brrrp-b-r-r-rp-brrrrrp. Damnedest thing, you can feel the change in cyclic. But that shite’s all shot up now so….
