This is beyond debate...what a venue!

Furthermore, I found one of the trails to be pretty much blocked in several places by downed trees. I had excellent help to fix this, but we were an hour late for the RO meeting (I HATE being late).

A couple other hiccups here and there getting things started and people in place. I was hoping first runner would be out at 9am....nah. Try 10:42. Oh man. I felt like I was losing traction.

The whole time...all of my RO's were so awesome and pleasant. Once we started rolling out shooters things flowed better.
EVERYTHING gets fixed on Friday...it's a rule.

Agreed, though I wish we could have gotten all the radios to VHF for Saturday.

It's a stupid outdated rifle that only morons find interesting...or it might be some kind of litmus test for just the right level of insanity. I am still upset that when you put the fellowship patch on it occurred to me you are not on it...wheels are turning, this must be remedied.

I suspect Matt exists in a barely contained state of taking the mouse away from other people all day long...it's probably why he drinks.

Well, some of us did it twice. I think my wound from it is infected. Urgent care will be unimpressed unless I get the video posted before I go. They are getting so hard to impress.

You nailed it, Kelly, be proud.
