This? Was one of the hottest field events I've attended. 92F plus 50% humidity on Saturday. Killer heat.

There were half a dozen that passed out on the field from the heat. That I know of. Really scary stuff. Truthfully? The public be damned and the site be damned. I don't care if they want their entertainment. There really should be a cutoff when the temps get this high. I guess the counter argument is that people need to know their own limits and not push past them, but that doesn't always work due to various sources of peer pressure, etc.

Be that as it may. The event happened.

We spent the day hauling big ass field guns up and down the field. The biggest problem? The damn cavalry. They dart about all over the place and you really have to make sure they see the signal that the gun is hot. Plus of course, ROAD APPLES EVERYWHERE. God.

Also? Spruce beer takes like Pinesol. :P

photos this way ... and no, not of the road apples )
