Welcome to Maine BD
« on: June 24, 2019, 10:06:44 AM »
BD recently moved to Maine from down south. He is a Designated Shoot Boss which means we now have two Shoot Bosses in Maine. We expect to meet him at Skowhegan, July 20/21. I spoke with him this morning and he really is here. He will be joining one of the clubs in southern Maine.

Our history is not a list of dates and places. It is a dynamic adventure of freedom and individual courage.

A yuge loss for the Virginia cadre, but a huge gain for our friends in Maine.

"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

Many hands (or even one more) can lighten the load. Welcome to Maine!

Brian and Bob,
I am glad to see Virginia's "seedlings of liberty" taking root in the far North.  Y'all are both already missed.  These gentlemen "Know well what they are about".  You should get a lot more chances at Winterseed up there >:D >:D >:D

BD,
Sorry to see you go.  Will miss seeing you at the VA events. Be sure and look us up if you are back down this way,  you always have a place to stay in VB.
Takecare, JL

Glad to see BD and Devil Dog signed up for Skowhegan; two weeks from today. There is still time and room for more IITs or anybody to sign up. Skowhegan is a great club with a great range.

We have Monmouth August 31, Sept 1. Another great club and range.
