Staffing Patriot's Day events
« on: March 21, 2019, 05:00:18 PM »
It's commin up fast and we need all hands on deck. If you are not already signed up to work a PD event - you're not doin it right! Pleeeese - look over the roster of PD events for understaffed events with high attendance numbers. A fine example would be the Hernando event with 36 shooters signed up and only one instructor and a shoot boss.

"We have always looked upon men as a set of beings naturally free - that a people can never be divested of those invaluable rights and liberties which are necessary to the happiness of individuals, to the well-beings of communities or to a well regulated state, but by their own negligence, imprudence, timidity or rashness. They are seldom lost, but when foolishly forfeited or tamely resigned." ~Jonas Clarke

The Second Amendment is a doomsday provision, one designed for those exceptionally rare circumstances where all other rights have failed -- where the government refuses to stand for reelection and silences those who protest; where courts have lost the courage to oppose, or can find no one to enforce their decrees. However improbable these contingencies may seem today, facing them unprepared is a mistake a free people get to make only once.

Since Partriot's Day doesn't fall on a weekend, we tend to be flexible about the date. We'll send out PD shootboxes for any shoot in April.

2wheelDuke, The answer is yes. Although, your April shoot qualifies.

The previous weekends are Palm Sunday and then Easter Sunday, so that's why Patriot's Day events were pushed back in most states.

I'll be in Bunell. Good luck everyone.  :cool2:

Bad men cannot make good citizens. It is when a people forget God that tyrants forge their chains." - Patrick Henry

The American Constitution is remarkable for its simplicity; but can only suffice a people habitually correct in their actions, and would be utterly inadequate to the wants of a different nation.  Change the domestic habits of the Americans, their religious devotion, and their high respect for morality, and it will not be necessary to change a single letter in the Constitution in order to vary the whole form of their government. - Francis Grund 1837

"In the prevailing political theory of the founding era, the family was considered one of the essential pillars of republican virtue, and it not only needed to be nurtured, but also protected from the tyranny of the government.... American revolutionaries and their descendants understood marriage and the family to be schools of republican virtue. -Mary Lyndon Shanley, Review Essay, 27 Law & Soc. Inq. 923, 926

I just checked. HSC is now at 42 - just three away from sold out. The 200M line can actually handle more, but I am still at three instructors, plus myself so not a good idear. We git a lot of kids at HSC and they often need more "personal" attention.

As to BBQ - nope. No dancing girls neither. Tammy has retired, but they are still running the kitchen and she trained them so should still b good food, but no BBQ.  :wb:

HSC is now at 45 - sold out and I just agreed to take three more for Sunday only that are not on the books. Considering pulling the cap, as I know the line will hold 60+, if we go into the sand and use pop ups.  :---

I will send out email today to old friends for more hands to clear the lines - time for plan B.  O0

You might want to reach out to Denise (Lady gator).  I put her with another shoot boss last weekend to learn to clear the line. She did well and did the job all day Sunday.
 
If I ask she will say no. She likes you better.   :)

TAMMY RETIRED?!

I expect you're going to have a bit of trouble gettin instructors to man that line.  She definitely made that venue worth attending.

Glad to hear you've got a sold out event on your hands!

The kitchen has been taken over by a woman Tammy trained, but I'll be bringing my lunch for both days - JIC. Will reccee the new staff and maybe go back to my standard chix sand if all looks good.  ^-^

Tammy put in a lot of years at HSC and she will be sorely missed.
