    Howdy. I'd like to get an idea how many of you are planning on attending Leadstock in January at the Cuz domicile. If you are planning on attending, please list which molds you have, and approximately how much lead you will bring, and if you have a melting pot etc etc.

    This will be a BYOB event, however I'll be making the coffee, and I'm confident my beautifull wife aka Mrs Cuz will produce some tasty vittles. As well, for those polar bears that know how to rough it, primitive camping is allowed. Or bring your trailers. Dont matter to me. Well find somewhere to put ya. We have 10 acres so space wont be a problem.

    This event is open to any one that wants to come. You dont have to be a club member, as none of us are 'officially' members yet anyhow :wink: Would anyone have a problem with making Leadstock the FIRST ANNUAL Gateway Cats meeting? My plans are to find a facility closer to St. Louis in the future, but thats going to take some time.

    Looking forward to January folks.

    I like the idea of a meeting and a leadstock. I dont know about everyone else but I am excited about the new club and anxious to find out more. I would show up whether I made weights or not.

    Depending upon the date, I will try to make it. Anyone need any egg sinkers up to 16 ounces? Looks like no rolls are covered.

    I will be there. Not sure if I'll have much lead though.

    I have the standard Do-It No Roll Molds up to 8 oz.

    But I also have the rare and much coveted Custom-Machined High-Dollar 8,12,16 oz Collins Customs No Roll Slip Mold. And you guys can feel free to make as many of those sinkers as humanly possible while we are there at LEADFEST.:cool2:

    Oh yeah, I have a propane burner and melting pot, and ladle, nothing fancy but I'll bring it and a 20lb cylinder of propane.

    Darryl we will probably need that for processing to clean some of the lead if Rat and some of us brings tire weights.

    I would like to attend just to see what it takes to fish in a big river. I've fished smaller rivers all my life, along with a lot of lakes, so maybe we can swap a little knowledge (little is the key word here)

    Thanks

    I'll be there.....

    I've got a mold that makes 8,10,12 and 16 oz bank sinkers.... I also have a small melting pot. Right now I have two five gallon buckets of tire weights but can probably get another one or two before the leadfest!

    I will be there, still trying to find some lead. I did get the Walleye from my dad this weekend. Let me know if there is anything else I can bring. I will have some lead by then and Vince showed me how to poor the other day so I should have some molds by then as well.

    Looking forward to it!

    I was planning on making it there, but I'll have to wait and see what my work schedule will be. I have no molds or any know how on pouring lead, but I'm interested in seeing how you guys do it. Don't plan on staying all night Cuz, but thanks for the offer.

    See how easy it is Ryan.. It is like making dollar coins out of lead when you are burning the 6 and 8ths. Sure saves ya allot of money in the long run!

    Depending on the date and my work schedule I'll try to be there if I can.
    I don't have any molds, but I'll try to get some lead gathered up...

    Be great to have you Charles. Even if you dont have any molds, plenty of the folks coming will. If your able to make it, see if you can scratch up some lead to bring along too. I'll post directions and such as soon as I get the date set. I'll set the January date the 2nd week of December. Thanks for your interest.

    Charles or anyone else attending. Are there any type of weight that you need or want to make up? Just ask and I am sure some of us will have the mold.
