Williamston, MI March 13-14, 2010 AAR
« on: March 15, 2010, 01:15:00 PM »
A big thank you to the 21 shooters and 7 instructors (TC, Dinky, GB, FuzzyMath, Miki, Buttstock, along with intheburbs on Sunday) who braved the nasty Michigan weather this weekend - at 42 degrees with spitting rain and a layer of ice still on the ground on Saturday, and 36 degrees, rain, a bit of sleet, wind, and a layer of mud on the ground on Sunday, you all impressed me with your persistence and performance.  Special kudos to the kids (Vince, Maddie, & Nathan) for sticking it out all day, esp Maddie for braving BOTH days and coming up with a fantastic 187 on her last AQT.  We have two new Riflemen (and we required a 215 due to the slightly short range), two more knocking at the door, and two Riflemen from earlier Appleseeds who demonstrated their first scores were not flukes by repeating them.  Repeatedly!  Dazureus' 242 showed an especially nice touch.  I will post the stats a bit later (I am dealing with a bit of fallout from my husband's car losing it's brakes on the way home from the range on Sunday - no one was injured, but we are a car short and I have some extra driving duties today) ANYWAY I wanted to get this started so you all could add your thoughts...

Still thawing out... (we need a shivering smiley)

Gotta love the Michigan weather. I was amazed at the persistence shown by the shooters. They just kept laying down in the water and shooting. It was a true pleasure to work with you all.

I will post pictures just as soon as I figure out how.

Just like to say thanks for wealth of information learned at the shoot, however the less said about the weather the better.  In addition I decided to name myself before anyone else did. 

Plan to be in Ohio at the end of July.

One more picture - Sunday's instructor crew:
