Title: Resignation
Post by: fisherdawg on February 22, 2018, 02:39:51 AM
It is with sadness the I am announcing my resignation from active participation in Project Appleseed effective immediately.  I had hoped to work at least part of the 2018 season, but that will not be possible.  I cannot meet the demands of time, energy, focus, excellence, and safety Appleseed demands.
This has come about entirely as result of personal and private reasons and it is with an acute sense of regret that I do so. Appleseed is perhaps the most worthy endeavor I have ever been involved with and my feeling about that has not changed. Since 2011, I have had the pure pleasure of associating with participants, Riflemen, and Instructors that I have the very highest regard for and to whom I wish all success.  To Liberty.

Seventy seven reads in less than sixteen hours.

That's a lot of speechless people.

Wally has done more than most for the program.  He's just giving the rest of us a chance to catch up some.

I have no words other than...

HUZZAH!

Huzzah because that is all I can think of to express the love and admiration I have for you Wally.

(I will miss your Sh*t drills)

Well... dang. That's a bummer Wally. I certainly hope that you won't be a stranger.

Maybe you can come back as a shooter sometime and earn some of the spiffy new patches?  ;D

Thank you for all of the hard work you've put in over the last several years!

I'm a little late joining in but maybe I'm starting to get over being stunned speechless. Appleseed without Wally? I just can't envision it yet!

You will be missed!!  We hope you will stop in once in awhile!!

Wow, such sad news.  Sorry, I'm late to the game.

Thank you for introducing me to this great program, and for all you have done for it over the years! 
It was always a ton of fun shooting with you and please let me know if I can ever do anything for you.
