TexasT earns his 50 event pin
« on: August 10, 2020, 09:40:50 AM »
PA Appleseed,

Please join me in congratulating TexasT (Tom) on earning his 50 shoot pin at our event this past weekend at Vienna, Ohio.  Tom came to his first Appleseed five years ago at Coshocton, Ohio along with his lovely wife.  He shot Rifleman at his first event, took a Blue Hat, switched it to an Orange Hat, and quickly became a great Shoot Boss. 

It was my honor to join Tom at Vienna this past weekend for the purpose of awarding his 50 Shoot pin.  I am personally blessed to have met him and his wife through Appleseed and was pleased that I had the honor of awarding his 50 shoot pin.  And, PA Appleseed is blessed to have such a great Shoot Boss as part of your team. 

Join me in congratulating Tom on his milestone.

Congrats Tom!! O0 Well deserved.

I was New Philly when you switched from a Blue hat to an Orange hat - Seems like it was just yesterday!

Congrats TexasT! That's a huge accomplishment. Last year I downloaded of bunch of the Appleseed shoot numbers. Now those numbers are incomplete and sometimes inaccurate and only includes since 2012 . . .  but what the heck.  :) With over 2000 instructors who had done events over the years, less than 100 had done 50 or more! Which puts you in the top 5% of all time Appleseed Instructors!

Just a little fun with the numbers but still a big accomplishment no matter how you count it.

Congratulations!  Thank you for your dedication!

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

“[T]o preserve liberty, it is essential that the whole body of the people always possess arms, and be taught alike, especially when young, how to use them…”

Nice work Tom!  And nice working with you!   O0
Rightful liberty is unobstructed action according to our will within limits drawn around us by the equal rights of others. I do not add 'within the limits of the law' because law is often but the tyrant's will, and always so when it violates the rights of the individual.  Jefferson
