Hear Ye, Hear Ye
« on: March 03, 2010, 12:56:46 AM »
Hear ye, Hear ye,  Laylopro and Camljr have both successfully completed their Senior Instructor requirements and have taken their place in the ranks of the Senior Instructors.
If ye love wealth better than liberty,the tranquility of servitude better than the animating contest of freedom,go home from us.We ask not your counsels or arms.Crouch down and lick the hands which feed you.May your chains set lightly upon you and may posterity forget that ye were our countrymen.

Thank you, Bob......

I appreciate the efforts you guys have invested in me....and all our little "side conversations" about caves & hide out gunners & promos & such.... O0 ^-^

When I went looking thru the list of SI's, I see that they are the folks who have stepped it up another notch on the trail for AS.......

Talk about yet another great bunch of folks to work with!! O0 :bow: O0

And I discovered my "blue felt special clown bat" had some how magically gone from being a single shot boltie, to being a semi-auto clip fed model......I think the MI's have the belt fed full auto versions....... **) **) %) **) **)

Ohhhh, we are gonna have some serious fun with our IIT's out here now!!   ~~:) ;) :cool2: O0

Thanks all.

Cam, Congrats, bro....glad you listened way back when....... O0

Take a moment and remember the kind of man you chose to be when you got yourself out of that last scrape. Maybe you prayed that you would be different if he delivered you. Maybe you found hope here you thought unreachable. Do not concern yourself with anything 'els THAT. Make the mission first.

Yeah Laylo... Me too. Thinking back, it could have been different, for sure. Glad I learned to put my ego aside (at times) and realize the mission was bigger than us all. O0

Special thanks to SavageShootr, for putting up with my attitude as a newbie IIT, and super special thanks to   V  
FOR MENTORING ME ON THE APPLESEED TRAIL, I wouldn't be where I am today with out your support... Thanks Phil...

I have come a long way, and have a long way to go, still.

I feel priviledged to be in all your company, and Laylo, you are still a force to be reckoned with on the forums.... :bow:  ~~:)

You both set a shining example for some of us "slacker" (at least recently) Instructors to get off of our couches (or comfey office chairs) and get out and 'Seed!

Cheers to you both!

LayloPro,

Does this promotion mean you are too far up the food chain to attend the Gardnerville Shoot, May 29-30 now?  ;D Congrats!!

Oh, Hell, NO!!! :wall: >:D ^-^ :---

Actually, I'm looking forward to helping make it a 3 day event @) O0 @@)........

the idea of KD all day on the 31st is just way too promising a way to throw lots of .30" & higher pellets across your lake bed -NOT- to be there....

And if I can drop the wife off @ Harveys in SLT during the day, I get a real kitchen pass to make myself scarce for the weekend..... ^:)^ ..:.. ^:)^

Looking forward to this one....
