Washington has a new Red Hat!
« on: May 25, 2022, 06:20:03 PM »
Please join me in congratulating Ctorg to the rank of red hat! Corey did his first event as an IIT in February of 2020 and this past weekend at Custer he completed his final progress check to get his red hat. I had the honor of instructing at Coreys first event as an IIT and now I got to hand him the red hat that he worked very hard to earn.
Corey rose to the challenge I gave him on Sunday as there were some specific blocks I wanted to see him polish and he did a wonderful job with them.
Well done Corey!  ..:..

Congratulations Ctorg!  I have to say your persistence as an attendee is something I will likely never forget, having picked out one of the worst spots on the line in-between two pop ups in low 40s weather on a rainy day wearing just 2 layers of cotton shirts.....

Huzzah! and Congratulations!

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…"
- Richard Henry Lee, Declaration Signer

Congratulations on earning your Red Hat! I remain of the opinion that it is the hardest hat to earn in Appleseed.
