As requested from the last chapter meeting, I'm posting my ideas for the upcoming year. Here I go:

- Hike on the Freeport- Butler Trail. I was thinking January 7 (which is also Orthodox Christmas) as a prep hike for those doing "The Road" event the following weekend (or not). The trail is a rails to trails trail and is very flat and super-scenic. We could also do this as a simple food bank drive as well. Those that don't bring food can give up some cash for the Red Cross or something. Maybe hike for a couple hours, and for the sake of simple logistics, turn around and go back. Then, do debriefing and cocktails at the Red Robin at Pittsburgh Mills.

- The Road. See other post in Chapter.

- Canoe Trip. What do you get when you cross Resident Evil and Deliverance? Besides Milla Jovovich with a mustache! A fantastic trip! Clarion River in May?

- Shooting competition- I sent out emails and waiting to hear back. Pistol, rifle, long range?

- Run for your Life. I saw this in other areas and this would be one that would require more logistics. Basically a cross country run with obstacles and the undead.

- Pittsburgh area Zombie Film Bus Tour. Do a guided bus tour to various locations where zombie films were shot in the area. The NOLD cemetery, Monroeville Mall, Savini school. This would need to be advertized to the rest of ZS and needs lots of planning.

- Exercises. Sometime soon, US Steel Building is planning on holding an active shooter drill, but to make it fun, they are substituting zombies. The answer is obvious here. The catch is that this would be workdays during business hours. The other one is the full scale exercise in the North Shore Connector coming up in the middle of 2012. They are always looking for volunteers. They also give out consolation prizes as well.

That's all I got for now. I'll post more if I think of anything else.

I'll bring my bow, you can do the squealing


Seriously, I like this idea. May should be great, but I have run canoes down the Clarion later in the year without problems. I took a college level canoeing class (1 credit A+ yeah baby) and we did it in July without any issues other than calling the trip the first day due to lightning. We ran I think 10 miles of river the second day in about 4 hours IIRC with virtually all inexperienced paddlers.

I've already been practicing the banjo for the past seven months. (Actually, my dad and I used to play Dueling Banjos with him on the banjo and my on the guitar. Mom got kinda sick of it after a while.)

I used to go canoeing on a fairly frequent basis and only nearly died twice! (OK, once was not really canoeing. It was whitewater rafting on the Yough when I got pinned under my duckie in a hydraulic.)

I have no watercraft of my own, but I'll bring a big cooler full of PBR and maybe a few steaks from Bardini's butcher shop for the masses to enjoy! :D

Indubitably, my good sir and/or madam.

In case you need back up, I can support with reinforcements from my Brauwerks. I currently have 6 varieties of beer im meinem Bierkeller and a amber ale brewed yesterday bubbling away in the parlour. I'm hoping to do an Imperial stout later on followed up by an IPA (or silly juice as I like to call it.)

Okay I'll look out for that next time I kayak down the Yough from Hazelbaker's. Thanks!

I shoot IDPA from time to time and have a blast with it. Always wanted to try USPSA but not sure if I would be competitive with my stock G21 or G30. I really need to pick up a G34 to compete with. Burning 200 rds of .45 per match is a tad expensive! Seriously though I'd love to get more heavily into competition... Would really love to get into 3 gun t some point as well.

I've had some additional ideas over the past week:

-A BOB hike and "pageant"- a hike of about a mile or so with 100% ready-to-go BOBs. After the hike, everyone opens up and unloads their BOBs. The group as a whole votes on the best BOB. Prizes go to the "Best BOB" and "BOB most-deserving-of-additional-support".

- In November and December, trying to link up the the Marine Corps reserve for Toys-for-Tots. (Most likely SPD's old unit.) Helping them with manpower, funding, logistics, and buying toys. (Buying toys sounds like fun for the first two hours, but it does get old).

- World War Z- premiers Dec 21 (the same day the world is supposed to end). We can get together to see it in the PAW.

Good ideas all. If you need some help in the traction dept., I got some friends that are part of the pittsburgh "It's Alive Show" thang.

With regards to the BOB pagent, I'd also be happy to send some acquired USMC stuff up yonder to Epi, K9, Jest, etc as a prize for the best BOB.

All that would be sweet! Even some of the "gear adrift" stuff would be great, such as canteens, cleaning kit, boot laces, and any of that other stuff that just gets collected. Pertinax might have a LA Police Gear T.H.E. knock-off bag. I can probably get my hands on some gear as well.

Looking at the schedule again, June and July are open and that would be a nice time to do the BOB hike and "pageant". And a shooting event.
