Please welcome our newest IIT, Captain America!!
« on: September 15, 2016, 08:28:44 PM »
I was a pleasure to see again and to instruct Chris and his awesome daughters, Danae and Jenna this weekend.  Chris shot a Rifleman score and accepted our invitation to become an instructor!  He has chosen the name Captain America and was so excited that he sent me the picture below, where he said "I decided to wear my hat to the office today!"

Me?  I'm just gonna call him Cap!  Wave next time you walk by the cockpit on a SWA 737 flight!

Thanks for stepping up, Cap'n!

"Responsibility is a unique concept... You may share it with others, but your portion is not diminished. You may delegate it, but it is still with you... If responsibility is rightfully yours, no evasion, or ignorance or passing the blame can shift the burden to someone else. Unless you can point your finger at the man who is responsible when something goes wrong, then you have never had anyone really responsible.”
― Hyman G. Rickover

Captain America! Welcome, and thanks for helping out.
Can't we all just agree to disagree in a civil fashion while the planet's last, fading hope of liberty and prosperity gets snuffed out?

No. We can't.

Chris, it's been a pleasure to work with you and your family as shooters.  You are in for a great time--you will learn a lot and do important work.  I can't wait to work with you.  Welcome aboard, Cap!

Thank you all for the warm welcome! I am truly humbled and overwhelmed with both your kindness and the amount of stuff before me I have to learn! I am looking forward to the journey. I tried to use that picture as my avatar, but it kept loading it upside down. Anyone got any techie ideas on that?
