NOTES FROM FF: This (the match part) is taking place at a new venue we have lined up for August 14-15.  
If anyone is planning to go, let me know by tomorrow (Friday), and I'll try to show up as well.  It would
be a good opportunity to see the facilities and do some planning for shooting lines etc. as well as get
some exposure to CMP teaching techniques.

It is certain, I think, that the best government is the one that governs least. But there is a much-neglected corollary: the best citizen is the one who least needs governing. The answer to big government is not private freedom, but private responsibility.

--Wendell Berry, "The Loss of the Future" in The Long-Legged House  (1969)

The problem is not Democrats.  The problem is Republicans who lack the intellectual clarity to become libertarians and libertarians who lack the physical discipline to become riflemen.  ---Kenneth Royce
