Great photos and congrats on the fine shooting to you all. You have shorts on so the weather must have been pleasant. As Pahoo said, it sure brings back memories. I don't believe I've been to Friendship for about ten years now . . . I miss all of it . . . the sheep sheds, the shooting, the music at night (I also play fiddle) and the smell of burnt powder and campfires at night. Just a great relaxing experience for sure. Glad you all had a great time and thanks for sharing!

I alway admire the posts you do of the family involvement.

Your performance in these meets is impressive as is that of your family.

Congrats to you and the wife. That medal ration between you two is about what my wife and I had at one time.
Good pics. I recognized Smitty right away. Didn't know he did music. He sure is amazing with the engraving.

... all I can say!!!!!!!!!!


Black Powder: Not because it is easy, but because it is hard, because that goal will serve to organize and measure the best of our energies and skills, because that challenge is one that we are willing to accept, one we are unwilling to postpone, and one which we intend to win...
