Minnesota's Newest Orange Hat!
« on: September 27, 2010, 01:33:39 AM »
Yesterday, at the shoot in Hinckley, MN; Mike (Taylor) earned his covetted Rifleman's Patch, on his third 'Seed!
He promptly requested an Orange Hat, and I gladly presented it to him.
As it turns out, his first shoot was Bristol, back in Aug. of 'o9!
Interestingly enough, that's where I earned my Red Hat!  -I thought he looked familiar! #)
Anyway, I figured you all in WI would like welcome MN's newest IIT, especially since he's from Wisconsin. ^-^
Congratulations once again Mike! :cool2:  (I'll spare you the obligitory  ~~:) 's as I'm certain Trisha will provide more than enough, when you least expect it. ::) )

My sincerest thanks to all of the Instructors at Hinckley this past weekend as well as the Instructors at Spooner in April 2010 and Bristol in August 2009 for the instruction and the inspiration.

Welcome aboard Taylor, and.........I know why you did not carpool to Bristol all the way from MN with Aftermath :)
