Let's kick off the fall season here in the NCFTE forum:
First on the agenda:
More participation. As many folks as we have on the roll here we should be having more people chiming in, sharing stories, showing off rides, and offering tips. If there is something I can do to help let me know. That includes constructive criticism about my roll here in the chapter. If y'all think im not doing enough on my part to grow our community then tell me.
Second on the agenda:
Keeping and growing the monthly dinner/get togethers. Doesn't have to be dinner. Car/truck/bike shows, races, community events. We can divide the regions and have mini g2g's if that helps folks get out and meet.
Third and last:
I will continue to come up with ideas to keep our community active. If you have ideas send me a message and let's discuss it. I am currently working on a new game that should be much simplier to play then the last one I created. (Boy did that one bomb)(but I tried and thought it was a fun idea) But this one is all about the trucks/fords and rules are accessible for most everyone. More details soon.
No better way to kick off fall then with some black powder.
I scored this over the weekend. Still getting details as I go through it. But this is what I know so far:
Its a 1863 remington zouave replica hunter. Made sometime in the 1980's. 58cal with 148 twist in the barrel. Shoots ***** or conical ammo. Has been hunted with. In really good shape. Came with a ton of accessories and about 40 rounds of various ammo. Still trying to determine manufacturer. I think its a zoli. Made in italy. Need to remove barrel to see if there is more info stamped on it under the wood. Planning to shoot this thing this weekend to get my ball/charge/ caps dialed in at 50 yards. 58cal should pack a punch. Ill keep y'all posted.
Not officially a chapter member yet, though I have asked/applied/whatever y'all like to call it lol. I'd be up for a monthly meet 'n' greet, and would be willin' to ride for a bit to get there too. I'll be down in Tarborro from Oct 4th-7th, doin' a little camping. Some of y'all may even know why I'll be down there. Anyway, if I can be of any help, just let me know!
Thanks! As far as Tarborro, it's just a bunch of guys I know, and some I don't, gathering up for a little camping and campfire conversations. Wouldn't surprise me to see some of y'all down there and not realize it lol
I will try and so soon, probly have to take some though, aint got a whole lot of her current form lol.
Hey Lilmatt119, Good to hear someone else kicking into the conversation. Just a couple of months ago we all headed over to High Point for some BBQ. But as long as the weather holds out do you have any places local to you the has some good BBQ to chow down on? NCHeaveymetal and I will ride the tires off of our bikes for good BBQ. Chime in anytime and give us a shout. Welcome to the NC Chapter.
