North Carolina - welcome our newest Red Hat!
« on: December 31, 2019, 03:37:36 PM »
My fellow Old North Staters,

At the Charlotte weekend on Dec 14th and 15th, Adrian (cowtipper) earned his Red Hat and became a full Appleseed Instructor.

During the weekend, he told Strikes 1 and 3, and they completed blew me away.  As many times as I have heard the history and told it myself, his was really the epitome of what I aspire my Strikes to be.  He did an outstanding job and is going to make a huge impact in accomplishing Appleseed’s mission.

Excellent work, Adrian!

Thanks for putting forth the time and effort that it takes to reach this level.  O0

Congratulations, brother!   :beer:

They who can give up essential liberty to obtain a little temporary safety, deserve neither liberty nor safety.
Benjamin Franklin, 1775

"A free people ought not only to be armed, but disciplined; to which end a uniform and well-digested plan is requisite; and their safety and interest require that they should promote such manufactories as tend to render them independent of others for essential, particularly military, supplies."  George Washington 1790

“[T]o preserve liberty, it is essential that the whole body of the people always possess arms, and be taught alike, especially when young, how to use them…”

I had the pleasure of meeting Adrian at last year's Congress of Riflemen.  Glad to see that he's joined the ranks of the Red Hats! (And I hear he tells some pretty mean Strikes of the Match, too).

HUZZAH!!!  HUZZAH!!! HUZZAH!!!
"5 minutes for this stage - that's like a week in people years!"

"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

"Scoring is a function of great execution, and winning Is the result, but thinking about winning can pull your focus off of proper execution in a competition. Thinking about process is the answer."- Lanny Bassham
