Title: My First Clinic as an Orange Hat
Post by: Gus on October 15, 2019, 04:22:04 PM
As the subject line indicates, this was my first clinic as an Orange Hat. I would like to thank all of the instructors at the 12-13 October clinic we had at Birchwood this past weekend who introduced me to what it's like to be 'you guys'!

You all made it look easy and that is no little thing. Very impressive.  It is something I will work hard at to achieve. I cannot remember a time where I spent two days at the range and didn't fire a shot-but had a great time. It was at once nerve wracking and thrilling.

Now it's time for me to write down all my pros/cons over the weekend. The pros I'll make better and the cons I will make right.

To FourFans, ItsanSKS, Taka222, Slowpoke, Pete!, Barry (sorry, I can't quite recall your forum name), and Hedge: Thank You!

I'm looking forward to more clinics in the future.

Thank you for stepping up. After over 50 shoots, I still learn something new each shoot I work.

I like to remind my OH instructors to always try to probe for the solution not just offer one up. Ask shooters open ended questions to lead them to the answer.
