Congratulations BeeFree, Michigan's newest dSB!
« on: February 25, 2020, 08:48:08 AM »
It's with great pleasure I announce the promotion of BeeFree to Designated Shoot Boss.  She has distinguished herself through her committment to the program and it's principles, steady leadership, and technical acumen.

It was a pleasure to dub her a dSB this past weekend at the Lansing, Michigan IBC.  Instructor Promotions made it official this morning!

BeeFree - well done!

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

Fantastic!!! I was wondering what all the buzzzzz was about.

2. Keep 'em there while you squeeze the trigger.
3. Repeat

lol - being knighted dSB.

I guess when you think about it most of the Instructors I know do have traits that the knights of old had. We have things in common with those of old like honor, being trustworthy, dedication, and loyalty. And a sense of Justice & Morals.

Congratulations!
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.

-- Justice Alex Kozinski, US 9th Circuit Court, 2003
