I'm waiting to find out if I'll have access to the place I want to hold it and then we'll put it up for vote. It's a private hunting club, I'll note there won't be any shooting of guns if it's held there. They don't rent the facilities to the public however they are going to consider it. I might not know until the beginning of April. The pavilion can hold about 100+ comfortably and it has a kitchen. You should be able to stay over for the night in a tent if you want and there is hotel nearby but I just read in the newspaper about plans to reopen it so I don't know the status of that. Other than that it's about 30 minute drive to numerous motels/hotels and that would be on the way to 81 anyway. If you want to pick up coal at Hudson it's about 30 minute drive from the breaker and again that's also on the way going back forth to 81, I'll still have to speak to Hudson to see if they will open. Of course if you want to go somewhere else that's up to you but Hudson would be the only one reasonably close unless you're heading north on 81 from Maryland etc. .

Well, if we have it in Centralia, we can make plenty of noise and there will be no neighbors to bother us and call the cops. :cheers: We can pitch tents right on the ground. There is free heat for this time of year!! The ground is nice and warm! Best of all, UAE Harmony is right down the street!!!! ;)

You'd be able to make as much noise as you want here. Matter of fact I'll probably be making a lot of noise.

I'll do a separate donation for them and make up the difference myself.

Every time I light one of those my Brother yells $2.50!!! :lol: Fireworks on the holidays is one of the things I allow myself to indulge in, it's a giant waste of money but too much fun.

I'm like you in that. I love my fireworks :!: Where do you get those kind? I usually get stocked up at South of the Border anytime I drive to Disney World. That SoB is such a different funky road side rest. I love it.

Well Joe I can tell you that but I'd have to kill you. :)

Those are Class C or consumer fireworks. That particular one is the best I have seen as far as loundness goes, it's as close as you're going to get to the stuff that requires a license. It's almost as loud as a quarter stick aerial bomb. There is various fireworks stores throughout the state they can be purchased. You obviously won't find them at the typical road side stand. As a Pa resident you need to have a permit that has to be signed by one of your local elected officials or authorities.

An odd part of the law is non PA residents can purchase them with no permit. ;)
