It looks like the old Farmington event Siege the Day is being resurrected under different sponsorship. Similar rules but they're banning FATs (but not any other advanced designs). October 17, in Farmington, NM. McGee Park, not the vacant lot next to the museum. Rules look the same.

Do you have a website link for that event Thomas? I don't seem to have a link as it hasn't been held in several years?

Hmm, looks like they killed the link. It was up a week or so ago. I e-mailed them then but didn't get an answer. Guess we can write them off.
