Homestead, Florida - AAR - January 8 and 9, 2022

The weather in Homestead had all intentions of not cooperating, but like the motivated students that came with their teachable attitude, we pushed through and prevailed!!

What a personal privilege and honor it was to work with and be amongst such a dedicated group of students and instructors! 

With each volley, you could literally see the "aha!" moments in each student.  As the target groupings got smaller and those smiles lit up the skies! 

A well-deserved "HUZZAH!" to Adam for coming back with purpose and mission to seek the coveted Rifleman patch.  His perseverance showed as he inched his way into the riflemen's bubble to meet that goal on Saturday with a score of 212 and to prove it wasn't a fluke, he confirms it Sunday with a high score for the weekend of 215!  Troy, not to be left behind comes in with a score of 210 where he is doused with water from the North Bridge.  Then we had 11-year-old Katie.  She had previously scored as an adaptive Riflewoman, but she did not care for the "adaptive" part!  She practiced and came back to score with a 211 doing all the transitions!!  Congratulations to all of you.

Many of the other students overcame challenges and a few were just dancing on the edge of getting there as well.

My personal thanks to all who helped make this weekend an overwhelming success.  I couldn't have been more blessed with such a dedicated group of instructors and an amazing grouping of students with such willingness to learn.
"Instead of sitting down satisfied with the efforts we have already made, which is the wish of our enemies, the necessity of the times, now more than ever, calls for our utmost circumspection, deliberation, fortitude, and perseverance.."  - Samuel Adams-- HUZZAH!!

The American Constitution is remarkable for its simplicity; but can only suffice a people habitually correct in their actions, and would be utterly inadequate to the wants of a different nation.  Change the domestic habits of the Americans, their religious devotion, and their high respect for morality, and it will not be necessary to change a single letter in the Constitution in order to vary the whole form of their government. - Francis Grund 1837

It's not about perfection -- it's about progress!!

I LOVE this stuff!

"Perhaps you and I have lived with this miracle too long to be properly appreciative. Freedom is a fragile thing and is never more than one generation away from extinction. It is not ours by inheritance; it must be fought for and defended constantly by each generation, for it comes only once to a people. Those who have known freedom and then lost it have never known it again."  Ronald Reagan
