Members better start following a simple one line instruction!

This will be a good thread in my opinion if members talk about the hobby, and leave the aguments out.
Look if you must.

Omg you guys, grow up....stay on topic and don't post otherwise...

I will start off by discussing how we can "advertise" the hobby more and getting more members on the team. What do you guys think?

Honestly, I don't think it is worth the effort of whether or not spud gunning is primitive. I personally think it isn't but that is beside the point. By the way, I don't like it when people do this, it really is a hassle to look it up on word.

Remaining true to the topic, diction aside, I personally think that spud gunning is a great hobby, one of which is just as good as conventional sports. It certainly requires a different skill than physical activities, but both are quite enjoyable in my opinion. As far as being made fun of goes, I personally have not had too much of a problem with such. In fact, probably the worst that has happened as far as others goes was being referred to as a "mad scientist" by one person, which in my mind isn't bad at all.

I never said spudguns were more innovative or advanced then cooking, I was trying to make a point.

Edit: And remember spudguns as they are known today have probably only been around for 20-30 years. Compared to cooking which has been around for hundreds.
