The Agenda for “The Shootout At The TX Corral” Event:

The “TX Corral” is an open piece of undeveloped property near Georgetown, Texas, about one hour North of Austin, Texas.  We have permission from the landowner to hold a PAT event on Friday Sept. 19th and Saturday, Sept. 20th, with cleanup on Sunday, Sept. 21st.  The event will have a state permit and insurance for 1.3G and 1.4G displays, and PAT will be providing the product and equipment for both.   There are no structures, power, or potable water on-site.  There are some retail camping sites available nearby the shoot site, close to Granger Lake, but camping on-site is prohibited.  Note: This is a new PAT site, and is approximately 1-mile from previous year’s Granger location.

We ask for volunteers to help us with registration, please let us know when you check in if you can help for a couple of hours during the event.  – Thank you.

Friday: Members should plan to arrive in the afternoon or evening on Friday.  We will be setting up some temporary cover and areas for building.   Mines, shells, and rockets will be built by members, along with the opportunity to light them off.  The 1.3G product will be pre-fused for use on Saturday.  There will be Open Shooting from 4:00pm – Midnight on Friday. 

Saturday:  Safety class starts day at 10:00am, then everyone can go into areas that they are most interested in.   Mines, shells, rockets, and other builds will be done during the day. The 1.4G and 1.3G shows will be wired and setup during the day.  PAT directed 1.4G and 1.3G Displays will be ignited at approximately 9:00pm.  There will be Open Shooting from Noon – Midnight on Saturday.  We will be inviting and expect some of the area’s neighbors to attend the Saturday night Display.

Sunday: Cleanup 10:00am

 

Due to concern for the neighborhood, Open Shooting will close promptly at Midnight.  Please check with the PAT Officers if you have requirements for particular mortar sizes, the shell size allowed is up to 12”.   Salute Rules Enforced will follow NFPA 1123 – Version 1995, as referenced by the Texas Code.

 

We will have grills on-site, please bring some items to grill and/or share on Friday night.  PAT will be providing lunch and dinner on Saturday and will ask members to donate to the club to help defray the cost.   PAT will also supply bottled water and soda’s during the event.

 

Note: Only PAT Members can touch pyrotechnics at this event.  Membership dues can either be mailed to the address on the form located on the website, or filled out and paid at the event.
