Georgia has a new Red Hat!!!
« on: September 11, 2018, 07:40:27 AM »
At the Canton event this past weekend, I had the very high honor of presenting 6Bones with his red hat.  I have watched him grow as an orange hat for the last year now, and I have no doubts whatsoever that he is going to be an amazing instructor.  Congratulations my brother.  HUZZAH!

Congrats!

On a separate note, what’s up with the shot up and signed Orange Hat?

I see you are an IIT4 now. Do your Red Hat PC in Clearwater and you will know first hand. :)

It's an Orange Hat retirement ceremony!

Correct! In Georgia, we like to retire our orange hats properly.  **)

All IITs and Instructors present (except the one moving up) bring a rifle, send some rounds into the old hat, sign it and then the newly minted Instructor has a great souvenir/memory for a shadowbox or what have you.

Congrats.   Just signed up for the October shoot in Macon.  Hope to see you at the range.
