Relocated IIT
« on: July 26, 2019, 02:26:16 PM »
Good afternoon everyone,
I wanted to reach out to the Arizona Instructor Corps to say hello and to introduce myself. As the forum will note, my name is Mr6actual and I have been progressing through the ranks as an IIT in Virginia. I have enjoyed my AS experience immensely as both a participant and IIT and even as a 7th stepper.  The reason for the post is that my company has asked me to relocate to  and manage their Scottsdale, AZ office. I am hoping to continue my Appleseed passion with you. I am very much looking forward to completing my training... (Star Wars fans will get that reference)… My official AZ residency will begin 9 Sept of this year.
I look forward to meeting you all at an event soon.

Y'all are getting a good deal here.  We're gonna miss him.

"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

The Arizona cadre is a very active group and you'll find several events within reasonable driving distances.  Tumbleweed and I will also be relocating to Kingman, AZ (in the far NW corner) within the next year or so.

Welcome!  Although I moved out of Arizona a few months ago, I'll likely be stopping back in on occasion, we may cross paths at some point.  Arizona is a Rifleman's paradise indeed.  It's easy to forget how much so until you go pretty much anywhere else.

Welcome to the desert, my friend!  I make the trek to Scottsdale once or twice a year. It's only a 6 hour drive to El Paso.  We're having a KD in October.  Hint. Nudge. Hint.  (and October in the desert is FANTASTIC!)
