Orange Hat Transplant
« on: May 23, 2018, 02:58:41 PM »
Give a warm welcome to Schooner.  He has relocated to the Pacific Northwest (Tacoma area) from the east coast.  He has been involved with the program as an Orange Hat since 2016, working shoots in Maryland and Virginia.

He generously offered to help at last weekend's shoot in Dundee, OR.  He has also expressed an interest in travelling to other events such as Idaho.

We are happy to have him on this side of the country.  Take a moment and send him a PM.

Welcome Schooner! It was great to meet you, and learn from you last weekend!

One word of advice, get a good raincoat! For some reason, the people in the PNW don’t believe in umbrellas, and they’ll make fun of you if you use one. Don’t ask me why! #)

Welcome, and thanks for staying with the program after your relo. I moved from the West to the East, so I guess that, in the grand scheme of things, Appleseed is even.  ;D
