I feel like an AA member who has to confess that they fell off the wagon.... but it's not my fault! Laughing 

I was watching a Sunday afternoon golf tournament the other week (as we sometimes do on Sunday afternoons) and Phillip Jr asked if I still had golf clubs. He vaguely remembered going out to a golf course with me when he was tiny. I put everything away that didn't include my family about the time that my wife told me it was either sell the race car or she was leaving.... I chose her. 

Anyway, PJ asked if I'd get them out of the attic so he could "see them". Apparently he had contracted the golfing bug which has now spread through the family. Embarassed So now we're spending time out on the links instead of just on the trails. 

So that's my confession..... Cool

I was only being satirical because it's quite different than roughing it in the back country, shooting, fishing, etc. Smile 

Of course I doubt I'll ever take a RR group out golfing. I find that I have to consciously censor my speech while playing.... Who knew a tiny white ball could elicit such anger?.... :evil:

No data just comments from anglers and searches like this one google "catch and release is cruel". Imagine being hooked and dangled above the ground for several mins and released without medical attn. I prefer to kill what I hook or shoot. Seems more humane. 

There is golfing in the silver merits.

We've got our second COA tonight! We scheduled the first one for a Sunday morning, but realized that a good many of our boys weren't there because they either go to other churches or not at all.

This quarter we decided to do the COA on a Friday night during our normal meeting time and then do a recognition this coming Sunday morning for the boys that do attend on Sundays. We've invited all the family and friends of our rangers and we're trying to make it a good celebration. We'll be grilling hamburgers and hotdogs for a good fellowship time following the council.

We're also making an official announcement tonight about our starting American Heritage Girls! I'm super excited about this and hope that it'll do well. We still have a lot of organizational things to do for it, so it'll probably be August or September until it starts. It got put on the back burner for a while because my wife was busy with a newborn and working plus three other kids, etc. Now that she's adjusted her work situation she's got a little more time.

Yes they will. It will make it easier on parents with both gender children AND safer for the ladies if they're not the only ones at the church every week on some night.

WOO HOO!! What a night! COA went great in this format. Had a decent little crowd and we ended up reaping two more commanders! I've been pulling on one of these guys for a while about coming aboard, and had mentioned it to the other. Both are good guys with sons at the outpost.

Carson (my wife) presented AHG with a very good response. There was a lot of excitement from the girls! cheers

This is our only Expedition Ranger tonight at COA. He's still got an Adventure Rangers name tag on his uniform because I haven't gotten his new one in.

That's my cell phone. Embarassed 

Had the Droid X for a few years and it finally kicked the bucket, so now I've got the Razr HD Maxx. Really good battery life for a "dumb" phone! I can get almost two full days of normal (which is a lot for me) use out of a charge. Mr Green

I've just started carrying my .38 Derringer in my pocket when I can't conceal my LC9. I'd like to get a .22 like Chris has though someday.

Personally, I'd rather go with an XDs single stack in 9mm or .45acp.

The Ruger LC9 is a single stack. It's one of the smallest 9mm's. I'll drop it in my front pocket a lot of times, but sometimes it'll print slightly. I didn't want to have parents get nervous if they saw a long raised area in my pocket.

I sometimes wonder how many people can ever see it and how much of it is just in my head?

I've never had a prob with throwing my XDm in my pocket. I think the jitters is in our heads. I had jitters the first few times carrying concealed. Most people aren't very observant. You can get away open carry in some places I've heard without alarm. I've o/c before in Gander Mtn but they implicitly state they honor local laws for o/c and c/c customers. The firearms salesman said I was more armed than he was cause they don't carry.

I've handled the LC9 I wouldn't have an issue with throw in the pocket an go. I've considered someday getting XDs for an ankle gun.

Wow what an Adventure

Post by Mark Jones on June 30th 2013, 9:26 am

We had our Frontier Adventure this weekend.  I had plans of going down early Friday and setting up camp hanging out with the boys maybe going swimming and then one of the boys had youth camp wouldn't be back till 5:00 pm.  Still time to drive them 2 hours to the Frontier Adventure.

Friday morning woke up to a Bradford Pear down in my front yard. So 4 hours later..it was cut up and ready for brush removal.  Stack of fire wood drying.

Got a call the youth bus had broken down 4 hours away in OK.  Church sent another bus 4 hours there and 4 hours back.  My Ranger applicant didn't show up till about midnight to the Frontier Adventure.

Saturday was full of adventure, learning and having a good time. All 6 of my boys made it into FCF and at the closing ceremony a front moved in and I gave out the lanterns and we headed home stopping along the way for Icecream and a drink.  Everyone headed home at 9:00 pm.  Our boys are doing the color guard for the 4th of July ceremony so we couldn't stay over another night.

Stopping by another church to pickup our Cardboard Boat they used for Vactaion Bible School then will bring the church van and trailer back.  Then we go on Family Vacation!  YA!

Woo hoo!! Had a great day at church today! Did a short recap of COA this morning for those that didn't cone Friday night. I'm gonna put it in the bulletin the preceding week and announce COA the week before next time so everyone can come if they'd like. We had such a good time Friday night!

Looks like we've got another commander coming on in addition to the two dads that signed on Friday night! This guy is already into primitive weaponry, hunting, etc. His son is only a year old, but he has a heart to help people, so he wants to get involved!

I'm super stoked because things are really coming together. I guess I better watch out for the ax to fall... Laughing  I will say that a lot of this is due to the fact that we have a VERY supportive sr pastor. He loves the rangers (and soon coming American Heritage Girls) program and it shows in the church. There wouldn't be this much excitement among our people if the pastor wasn't on board. He's a blessing!
