Alabama has a new Shoot Boss - Mixed Metaphor!!
« on: April 30, 2019, 11:04:18 PM »
Please help me congratulate Mixed Metaphor on earning his Green Hat last weekend in Columbiana!!  ^:)^ :partytime:

He is as passionate about this program as anyone I have ever come across . . . if you stand still for two seconds he will tell you all about it and hand you a business card.   ;D  We are fortunate to have him in the cadre and are especially proud that he recently stepped up to become our AL State Coordinator.  Now he has taken the next step to become a Shoot Boss. I can't wait to see what is on his horizon.  O0

Thank you, Mixed Metaphor, for everything you do for Appleseed!

Huzzah!

And thanks for stepping up.

tk
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.

"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
