With TMG coming out (hopefully in the next couple weeks) I was hoping to get a meet together around the Wisconsin Dells area to play with TMG and Radar too.

I live south of the Dells and know the back roads in that area like the back of my hand. I've got a few places in mind already and I'm sure I can find others that meet specific testing criteria where we won't be bothered.

My test mule is a GMC 2500 HD farm truck that can be parked along pretty much any rural road without raising suspicion. My only test equipment currently is a Kustom Golden Eagle 35.5 but it shouldn't be an issue to stick other guns you might bring in the truck.

I think @Tallyho is game and I hope we can get a few others to come. I've only met 2 of you, including Tallyho so I'd like to rectify that situation.

Right now I'm thinking that a weekend in October would be best. I'm open to suggestions.

@Tallyho , would you help tag everyone you think might be interested?


UPDATE: Looking at Oct 27 or Nov 3rd

Bump

Currently going over course possibilities.

Should be able to start narrowing down a date soon.

Hopefully a few more people would like to join in on the festivities!

TMG is out and I've got mine on order, so hopefully we'll have at least mine to test and even better, a few others as well!

Radar courses for the meet are pretty much decided on. I found a good one that can be used in two directions for different tests without gun relocation and I've got a couple others with different limitations. We may get to only on or two but it's nice to have backups.

I think it's time to seriously consider the date.

I would like to propose November 3rd or 4th. My backup would be November 10th or 11th.

Let me know what you guys think!

The sooner the better for weather reasons. I'm close enough and flexible with dates so if the weather does not cooperate more than willing to reschedule.

Well, the weather sucks so bad now, it's bound to improve by November 3rd right? Ugh, this rain.

We just moved, so I still need to unpack my radar and laser stuff... Now you'll have to come!

Just one for now since we opted for the fancy one and need to build a new (bigger) garage soon.

The 27th of October has also been thrown into the mix. I'm fine with that as well.

So, 27th or 3rd are the top two dates so far.

Let's try to get a date agreed on within the next few days.

Just from experience everyone, whoever has the Lidar guns should set the date and post up what date the meet will be. (Looks like it is narrowed down to Oct 27th or Nov 3rd?) Whoever can attend can attend, and who cant, cant. In every meet I have put together, there has never been a "perfect date". Otherwise, these things never seem to happen.

@lugnuts - can you make it on either of these days? Otherwise I'll stop down by you this week to pick up my gun.

Are you able to get the Falcon HR from @protias for the 27th? I have a Decatur Scout that @dchemist let me borrow. I can’t make it on the 27th but if it’s OK with @dchemist I can ship it to you for the test event.

I'm good as long as I get it back by Thanksgiving. Wide open roads and a house full of in-laws sounds like a perfect testing opportunity!!!

I'll be watching the weather forecast over the week to see if we need to go to the "rain date". Currently it looks like 60% chance of rain on Saturday but I'm sure that will change one way or the other as we get closer.

--- DOUBLEPOST MERGED ---

Down to 20% chance of rain. Looking better!

the 3rd is better for me. I'm supposed to help a friend with his ALP/NET radar setup on Saturday.
