A First?
Dec 28th, 2004 at 10:09pm
 
Hey there,

Has anyone from the site met another slinger from the site?

Someone just emailed me and lives 15 minutes away! Hope to give him a call and sling some stones. Hope we don't kill eachother with wild shots. Grin

A second.  Almulek (Ben) and I got together for a slingfest already.  We shot video.  Ben must have been busy with school and Holidays.  I will look him up this week to see if he has the footage we can post up.

Also, I went down to check out the "sling competition" site, but nobody was there.  Next time I go, I hope to meet some more slingers too!

I had a guy email me and he lived like 10 miles away. I returned his message but he never got back with me. I shore hope he does some time.

Sure, sure. Some hunter will probably find his body sprawled out in the middle of nowhere with a funny dent in his head.

That happened to Yurek, our slinger from Poland! He was slinging across a lake and some hunters came out looking all around trying to figure out what was going on. Roll Eyes He didn't hit anyone fortunately--He's the one who has slung some stones a quarter mile!

It would be nice meeting others that enjoy slinging. If you talk about slinging to most folks, they look at you like your a nut.  Roll Eyes OK, so I am a nut. lol  Grin

don't recall any video of that ever being uploaded to the site.
This also predated youtube Smiley
So any video clips were uploaded to the forum server.

But it does illuatrate that slingers tend to be solitary and reluctant to make an effort to meet anyone else.

I suspect I've met more forum members than anyone else, but I will always make an effort to meet someone, and usually feed them and often house them for a few days as well Smiley
 
Plus all my recent international holidays have been to sling or meet slingers.
Can't believe that wyoming slingfest was 13 years ago !
Best two weeks ever !

Pre-youtube? Wow, struggle to even remember that time now!

I've met quite a few forum members on my two Balearic International visits. Outside of that not yet though!
