Tuesday, February 27, 2007, 01:05 AM - Other EventsOk, folks.
We're trying to gauge interest in a club-sponsored trip to the Knob Creek machine gun shoot this spring in Westpoint, KY. Knob Creek is a huge biannual event with one of the nation's largest outdoor militaria/gun shows, machine gun/assorted Class III rentals, submachine gun matches, and a night shoot with tracers and reactive targets. It's always a fun trip, and this year we're considering turning it into a club-sponsored event. The shoot is scheduled for April 13-15.
We haven't nailed down any details yet, but we're looking at using university vans to travel in; leaving early Saturday morning, April 14th; staying late for the night shoot; spending the night in a hotel somewhere; and coming home the next Sunday. Cost hasn't been decided yet, but would be minimal.
Knob Creek's website is http://machinegunshoot.com/.
Teaser photos and video are available at http://www.knobcreekshoot.com/.
You can discuss this idea on the club forums here. This thread is in the public area of the forums, so you can post anonymously without registering, if you want.
If you're interested, please respond in the forums or contact Jon. We need to get a rough idea going on this soon if we're going to make this work.
Friday, February 16, 2007, 11:40 PM - Tech SupportWe've launched a new message board for the club so that members (and nonmembers too) can interact and discuss stuff online. It's been in the navigation menu for about a week now, but I haven't announced it because we were still setting it up.
It's not perfect yet, so even though it's stable, we're still adding things and tweaking. Therefore, it's officially in beta, but definitely feel free to register and post any questions, comments, thoughts, or photos you might have. (You'll have to host the photos yourself. Your Purdue career account would be great for that, as well as the usual photobucket type sites.) We'll see you there.
PS - Also added a page for fun downloads.

Friday, January 26, 2007, 07:40 PM - Tech SupportThe safety briefing has been overhauled a bit, and the updated version is available from the safety section. As always, constructive feedback is welcome.
Also, in the course of working on the site, the forms for emailing officers got broken, so the Contact Officers page is useless right now. If you need to contact the club through email, use the Contact Webmaster page above the officers link. Note in the subject which officer you'd like it sent to, and we'll forward the message to their inbox without looking at the contents.
Update: Officer email forms have been fixed.
