My thanks to the volunteers at the Manchester AEDC Range
« on: May 26, 2014, 03:27:54 PM »
I just wanted to take the opportunity to thank the Shoot Boss, Rusty, and all of the volunteers again for their time.  With their assistance, I was able to go from a 200 yard shooter to clearing the redcoat sheet and earning my rifleman badge. 

Two days of time, volunteered to help others improve the marksmanship of others.  It really is an amazing sacrifice.  Thank you.

You're welcome and congratulations on your accomplishment!

It's our pleasure to help inform, educate and illuminate the history and skills so often overlooked.

Hope you see you at another!

Yes, a big thank you to all the instructors and volunteers.  Great weekend of instruction.  My wife and I walked away with a lot of training drills to work on.  We also walked away with many new friends.

Many of them were out there today at the KD as well. When we weren't shooting, we were sipping water in the shaded scoring pits. They stayed out there in the sun all day. The event was so well run we got in three full distance AQTs.  :---
Now who can argue with that?

My thanks for all the patience shown to me by the instructors this weekend.  I'm sure that sometimes you felt like you were beating a dead horse. :DH:
I look forward to seeing you again at the next event that David and I come to.

I too want to thank all the instructors and volunteers. They were very encouraging to everyone especially the young ones. Reagan and I had a great time and he can't wait to come back (me too).

Also thanks to the Choate family for their hospitality and friendship. We also appreciate meeting Brandon and his dad.

Coleen (TN_GunGal) and I enjoyed meeting you guys.  Every time I looked over at Reagan he had a big smile on his face.  That was cool!

Y'all worked really hard in the heat and humidity... some of you for the full three days!

Lots of good improvement, lots of open-mindedness about learning new things over the weekend.

Thank you for the privlege of serving you.    :)
We're in the Liberty business.  If all we do is hand out patches to people who already know how to shoot, did we help rescue America?
