If you are interested in making any sort of donation, contact me via PM. That way anything you donate goes to the WI Chapter.
I've been doing it for 16 years now and have enjoyed every minute of it. LOTS of hard work but that's nothing compared to what some of these men and women have had to go through. REALLY puts life in perspective when you get to know some of the guys throughout the U.S. that my wife and I have met and shot with. Interesting life stories from one gentleman being in the first wave of Rangers at Normandy (he passed away in '04), a member of the 173rd Airborne in Viet Nam (he was in the battle sung about by Big & Rich in the song "8th of November") to someone injured by an IED in Iraq.
The National Shooting Sports Director said this at the first event I attended back in 2000 and it sticks with me today: This shooting circuit is not about what we can't do. This is about what we CAN do."
Wern Valley cancer shoutout is next weekend. I have plans to be there for that.
Leaving in a few minutes for Edwardsville, IL to shoot with the WPVA at the IL Paralyzed Veterans Chapter shoot. Come home Sunday night then as Tim is doing, head up to Rome for the WI State Shoot next Wednesday.
If anyone is going up, stop by the WPVA tent (actually awning) and say hi. I'll be there Wednesday through Sunday selling raffle tickets for our annual fundraiser. Got some good stuff to raffle!!!
I'm shooting McMiller this Sunday morning. Should finally be some nice weather. Second time out this year with my, new to me, used Browning Citori Lightning. So far I have a 43 and a 41 with it. I am in love with that gun!!!
