[ Next day late again sorry-not-sorry ] Thank-thank-thank-thank-POST!* A million ‘thank yous’ to all involved in the match. Shortening it up this time to say an all-caps THANK YOU to all of the veterans on their day. To the work…

Happy 243rd Birthday to the USMC (on Saturday during our match). Speaking of the Marines… Our next match is our annual Toys For Tots charity match on Saturday, November 24, 2018. Bring new, unopened toys valued at AT LEAST $20 or cash of AT LEAST $20 as your entry fee. This is our ‘new Mega-BUG’ (back up gun) format: Guns shorter than 4-inches, loading devices holding 5 rounds only. Registration/Collection from 9-10am, shooting starts at 10. Can’t make it?

Immediately after the match (above) we will hold our annual ‘IDPA Classifier as a Match Match’. We’re doing the ‘new abbreviated’ classifier this time. 25 rounds only. Extra toys or cash donations to the new ‘range house fund’ are greatly appreciated, but Andy and Shari said “nothing extra *required* for this one.” IDPA membership is required and we need your IDPA Member Number to upload the classifier results.

We asked google to define veteran for us. vet·er·an /ˈvedərən,ˈvetrən/ noun: veteran; plural noun: veterans
a person who has had long experience in a particular field. synonym: old hand

A little over a year ago we asked for your hopes-thoughts-wishes-and-prayers for our “own” special range friend-family “K”. K came to visit with us yesterday and reported that for the 2nd time K has beaten “the battle of the un-beatable health issue.” Happy Veterans Day, K. Thank you (another million times) everyone for the “holding up”.

To one of our ‘range veterans’: Happy Birthday Ian Foo! Missed you.
