Thanks to all the great instructors at Lodi - Jeff, Renee, Trisha, Rob, Mike, Thomas.  I had a great time at Lodi this weekend and so did my daughter.  Even though I had never shot a rifle before, I made 218 and got my Rifleman patch.  How fun!  Could have done without the snow and rain, but we charged through the weather and kept shooting. And thanks to the Sugar River Fencibles for their re-enactment of the bridge where Cptn. Parker's men shot back.  Gotta love those muzzleloaders.
