Central Plains - Welcome new Regional Coordinator, Captain!
« on: October 09, 2021, 10:36:13 PM »
Friends,

After many years of dedicated service, Master Instructor Colycat will be passing the Regional Coordinator torch.  Colycat has been a leader in Project Appleseed for many years.  He's been instrumental in helping shape the Project Appleseed we all know and love today.  Of course, he'll be staying on to serve as an MI - for which I am very grateful.

As grateful as I am for Colycat's long service, I'm equally excited to announce the new Central Plains Regional Coordinator, Captain.

Captain and his family are joining the Arkansas and Central Plains team.  If you've spent any time on the forum, you can't help but notice his limitless energy and passion for the Mission.  I am confident that Cap is going to be a great addition to the Central Plains Region!

Colycat - thank you for everything you've done in the role of RC.

Cap - thanks for picking up a bigger bucket to bail.

Please join me in thanking Colycat for his many years of service as RC and Cap for taking up the mantle!  HUZZAH!!!!!    O0

In Liberty,
MO

Lucky you CENTRAL PLAINS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!  And congratulations Rob on your new post and thank you so much for everything  you have done for Appleseed.  We appreciate you!  PRP
When half of the people get the idea that they do not have to work because the other half is going to take care of them,  and when the other half gets the idea that it does no good to work because somebody else is going to get what they work for, that is the beginning of the end of any nation.

See? When you go to bed really early,  you miss all the excitement!

Colycat, our humblest gratitude for your years of service, and dedication to the Mission and the people under your care. "Huzzah" is insufficient,  but it'll have to do.  So glad you'll be staying active in your MI role.  Thank you.

Rob,  you sneaky devil. I turn my back for a minute,  and you're an RC! Doesn't seem all that long ago you were an IIT0 at a Boot Camp, learning stuff from me. What's that saying about students surpassing teachers? It's our greatest wish.

I guess I'll have to tell Bill you're not an "orphan" anymore  ;) You're Central Plains' Rob now.

My sincerest thanks to you both.   :bow:

Colycat was SB at my first Appleseed in 2009 and he definitely reawakened The Spirit of The American Revolution in me. Thank you for all your service Coly!

Thanks to ColyCat for all his service. He did the review for my SBit3 event (over the phone) 10 years ago when there was no DSB to work the event with me. I hope to meet you face-to-face sometime.
Congrats Captain!
