How are we looking for using smoke this year? I stock piled a ton of them for last year, but the fire warning for last year kind of put a kibosh on using them before we even got a chance to. I know I have something like 30x 40mm launchable smokes, and I think Shaun has quite a few too.

We will know the answer to that at, or just before the event.  Same for flares. 
The weather down there is notorious for not being predictable 20minutes out, let alone a month.

I am bringing my flares just in case!

This sort of thing is very weather dependent.   We have literally caught the fields on fire down there when there was snow on the ground some of the native grasses particularly in the fields and camp areas are absurdly flammable.   Rain usually tamps things down just fine so it's just a weather thing.

Correct sized smokes, like "SportSmoke" can be muzzle loaded into a 203 or similar long barrel 40mm, with a gassed up (no BB's) 40mm shell already loaded in the tube.  Pull the pin, drop the smoke down the barrel, take aim and fire.  You want the initial flare up of the smoke to stop before you drop it down the barrel.  If done right with a good capacity grenade kept at fairly warm temperatures, you can about double the throw distance of a smoke.

Aha, cool. I may have to try that.

I also may have to get a new barrel on my 203, because I think it didn't care for TAG rounds.
