CALIFORNIA HAS A NEW RED HAT!
« on: June 28, 2016, 01:09:19 PM »
CONGRATS TO JUST.A.GUY!!!   ^:)^

Just.a.guy (Matt) received his Red Hat at the Hat Creek event June 25-26.  We ceremoniously retired Matt's orange hat in a volley of rifle fire. :--- !

Congrats on a job well done!

Thanks for the time and dedication that it takes to reach this level. Your work is appreciated by many.   :bow:
