Roswell, NM, AAR May 5/6, 2018

What a great weekend! 8 fine Americans celebrated the founding of this nation by learning the skills that continues our heritage of being a nation of Rifleman. Comfortable to a little hot weather greeted us both days. Ben 10 years old made great progress insisting on shooting military irons, he's knocking on the door and I have no doubt his persistence will pay off in the future.  Josh brought a friend from Lubbock and Josh, an inactive IIT.... Turned in a HUGE 244 score, at which time he was directed to show up Sunday wearing his orange hat and it was as if he'd never missed a beat. Thanks Josh for the help! Tony was knocking the door all weekend finally turning in a very nice 220 to earn his patch. Then we have Justin... Being a former Marine and taking some ribbing from a fat ugly sailor... Turned in a 238 on his first ever AQT! He continued to turn in expert scores and being a history buff, contributed to the history on Sunday. You know what is coming his way after he attends his second Appleseed! A great weekend, victories big and small for everyone and I especially want to thank my IIT's!  Carry on.....
