New Mexico has a new Red Hat!!
« on: February 22, 2022, 09:56:11 PM »
Ladies and Gentlemen, it is with much pride, and glee, that I announce that Captwa has well and truly earned his Red Hat!   ^:)^ ^:)^ :F ..:.. :beer: :partytime: :1luvu

Captwa has been with the program since 2009, ya'll, content to be an IITFL and do whatever was asked of him. And he's always done so with a wonderful, positive attitude, and a friendly smile. Well, when Ghostring asked about testing for Instructor, Captwa delivered.  How many Instructors in the program have a red hat signed by Maximum Ordinate AND Ghostring? He may very well be the only one!

HUZZAH! HUZZAH! HUZZAH!

Ghostring, when you have a chance, sir, do please send a photo of the big moment  :)

Huzzah! and Congratulations! I bet that red hat feels great!
In giving us dominion over the animal kingdom, God has signified His will that we subdue the beast within ourselves.
John Lancaster Spalding

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…"

Congratulations and THANKS for stepping up!

tk
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.

Warren,

Thanks for taking that Red Hat!

Just as you've learned from every Instructor you've been exposed to, the next generation of instructors - our reliefs - will learn from you as well.

@Mrs. Smith - I'm stealing the term, "IITFL".   ;D
"5 minutes for this stage - that's like a week in people years!"

"Responsibility is a unique concept... You may share it with others, but your portion is not diminished. You may delegate it, but it is still with you... If responsibility is rightfully yours, no evasion, or ignorance or passing the blame can shift the burden to someone else. Unless you can point your finger at the man who is responsible when something goes wrong, then you have never had anyone really responsible."
― Hyman G. Rickover

"Scoring is a function of great execution, and winning Is the result, but thinking about winning can pull your focus off of proper execution in a competition. Thinking about process is the answer."- Lanny Bassham
