Indeed. though one of the 30's had an issue with the microswitch, which will likely need to get replaced. the epoxy that was holding it on there came loose. We tried to rig it up with a zip tie, but that lasted about half a day before it came loose again.

Yeah, I have a feeling the rain and then the humidity that came in the afternoon and the next day did the same to the electronics and the glue that it did to the paint.... Oh well, you live and you learn....

At least it did look cool running around the field.....

Having him tell me how proud he is that we play a game like this to honor him and those he fought with will be the highlight of my year.
That seems like a great honor for all the players that attended

He was a fantastic guy, and tells some great stories; after shaking his hand and seeing that smile in his eyes, you got the feeling that all he needed was an invitation and he'd play for a little while. Kudos to the folks who arranged his appearance!

The owner of the track is learning :
1. 30 cal had a micro switch problem unrelated to the Rain.

2. .50 cal had a pressure issue. You could hear the Solenoid clicking fine. and the gun had pressure it just wouldnt shoot. I wasnt about to disassemble a $4k gun to determine the problem though.

Mini Gun went down due to the T-board getting Fried. It Fired better with me using a radio to trigger it then it did with the Trigger. was not rain related though.
