Howdy to all the southern crew.

With Mutti leaving and Steck in Texas... We have a void.  I was hoping that someone from down your way would be willing to step up and help out coordinating the Southern half of the state. 

I have done a couple shoots down your way.  I met some of you at the NRA Youth shoot last year (I think.. or the year before).  I am the one that usually has a daughter or two in tow...

I am still new to this SC job and don't yet have a firm hand on it yet.  But, I will/am doing what I can.  One of my goals is to find another venue to hold events up my way.  Waterman is about it for us in the northern half.  I know you guys have a whole lot of venues... so, I could really use a southern counterpart to help manage and schedule those ranges. 

Also, as a side note, someone is trying to close Sparta.  ISRA is sending a petition around to try to keep it open.  http://goo.gl/forms/05A5B1P8V3.  I don't know anything about that range, but I hear its a good one.

PM me with ideas or thoughts about this.  Also I am looking for any ideas/needs that Illinois has. 

Thx and have a good weekend.

2 clicks, thanks!

floydf, we're going to Burleson (which is south of Ft. Worth).  That puts us within a reasonable distance of both Dallas and Waco, however we're going to be swamped for a while so no Appleseed for a bit.
