Students: 
+ 17 students so far, althought LBOTG say that we'll fill it
+ Nice mix of families.  Multiple youth shooters (11-13 yrs) so far.  Oldest shooter is 48...geez I'm feeling old.

PC advancements to be evaluated:  Bill?

Logistics:

+ I have 2 8x8 EZ Ups...we will use these.  If you have some, please bring them to cover the shooting line if it is really raining hard.
+ Our LBOTG is awesome.  They typically build the target line.  I'll plan on arriving a bit early to help on Friday evening.
+ Instructor meeting at 7:45 am on Saturday.  Please be there no later than 0730 for set up.  Friday night help would be great

Instructor dinner - We'll have to see

7th Stepping -- All the cadre should be working to generate shooters on the line as well as lookout for students that display marksmanship abilities, even temperament, enthusiasm, a connection with the message, ability to communicate, willingness to help out.  Please point these characteristics out to me during the weekend.

Instructors Carrying:  Legal OC/CC encouraged by instructors however, a minimum of Level 2 retention is required.  Make sure you check IN gun laws

  Hesitant to sign up for history yet but if you insist, be kind.  Want to work the mechanics of the shoot primarily.  Shake the rust off for the routine and verbatim.  I had tried to get that out of the way earlier in the year but work interfered.  Vicki (Repeat) is planning to be there but don't think she has the paperwork out of the way for her blue hat.  Gave her a nudge to finalize that so she can be officially signed up for the shoot.  Can she test for RSO on her first shoot?  If so I will push a little for her to know the procedures.  She is familiar already.  I will need an orange hat unless my old faded red hat will do...(No need to answer that)...

As a small thank you to the volunteers working with us, Ray and I would like to invite you all to dinner on Saturday night as our treat.  (It looks like great patio weather!) 

If any of you are planning to camp out on the grounds or in the clubhouse please don't hesitate to text or call so we can help make your stay more comfortable.  (219-226-3400)

Thank you all for sharing your time and talents with us in Shelby.

Hey y’all! Pepper Spray here, I would like to volunteer for second strike, and Cap says he’d do third strike if that sounds good.
