Pretty good report on the subject from the local CBS station
Our gun club also helps out with several area school clubs; I think we are up to 3 – maybe 4 clubs using our fields for practice. So it is good to see a positive report on the subject.
One of the things not mentioned in the report is how much family involvement goes on behind the scenes. Just like band or other school activities, it takes a considerable number of parents to make it work. We see a large number of parents helping out, working with the kids and learning about the sport.
And joining the club
…just to recover from the weekend. Its been a while since I’ve had a weekend this good. Tiring but good.
Saturday was another wedding; this time my” niece” Samantha and her new hubby Jason. Great ceremony and good times but made for another long day.
Then up on Sunday for church and –prepare yourselves — a few hours of actual shooting goodness !
Yes, your humble scribe remembered that he can actually use the range for target practice. My buddy Cliff was in town for Sam’s wedding and we spent about 3 hours running a pistols and our .22 rifles through their paces. Good news is both of us can still shoot even though some rust shows on the skills.
I would have taken pictures, prepared reviews (shot his Ruger 10/22 for example) but was having too much fun just shooting. Maybe next time.
In the mean times, here is a pic of the bride and groom.
Hope your weekend was as fun as mine.
Not sure what is going on with the blog right now; I at least keep getting database communication errors.
I’ll try to get some help resolving the issue (probably related to the web hosting service I use) soon.
Just not sure when “soon” will be — I’m working crazy hours still and my niece is getting married tomorrow. Have a house full of guests for the wedding and club board meeting was last night.
For Some reason, I’m feeling a little stretched.
But speaking of marriage; did I share a picture of my daughter and son in law?
A little long but the weather held out for a really nice day. A little breezy when we needed it to keep the temperature bearable and no storms.
They chose a beautiful venue. Just a minute from the freeway but seemingly isolated by distance and time.
Rich’s daughter “K” was included in the ceremony with daughter Carolyn presenting her with a Unity Locket. “K” was also the Flower Girl for the ceremony.
The reception was held on the same venue with excellent BBQ (sorry I can’t think of the name of the caterer or I would be touting them). Again the weather turned absolutely delightful with a little breeze and very comfortable temperatures as the sun went down.
The celebration went on late into the night but us old timers left around 11:00 p.m.
I’ll try to steal some more pictures to post later. I also need to steal some from She Who Lets Me Make Her Coffee Every Morning’s Birthday Party on Sunday. I’m not going to say how old she is but it is a “major milestone’ birthday.
I asked one of the most important questions in my life.
She said “yes”
6 months later we were married.
I’d ask again today, tomorrow and every day of my life.
Love you Kimberly
Might have to call it “living dangerously” or “Inconvenient Truths” (might already be taken) but there are too many just to pass up.
Again…I’ll exercise my right to say nothing else.
