Well looks like a certain person who I have an issue with, who accuses everyone who doesn't make every tourney that he makes "pretenders" and another item of a womans anatomy is correct in his statement to me. Not that I really give a rats butt what he thinks.. LOL

Due to family considerations I will not be attending Yankton, for the NFAA Outdoor Nat's. I wasn't probably going to stay for the worlds as some of you know.

My wife is active duty Navy still (so glad I am retired .. LOL) And she leaves soon on a small training detachment. She will be back a few weeks later, only to leave again for a training detachment to Fairbanks AK, well the date of that has moved up again and that ends my hope of attending the Nationals. She will be gone almost a month. Then when she gets back, she will have about a month at home and will be deploying somewhere for 8 months.

Looking at the dates of her deployment, unless I can stash my 2 high school kids somewhere it will also wipe out my Vegas and Louisville trips. I still have hope I can convince Grandma to come up for a bit to help out... :)

So my old buddy (should be ex buddy?) maybe you were right? Nah... I will figure out a way to show up and kick your butt in Vegas... if you decide to pull out a RC.

Funny thing is the Nat's were about the only tourney I was going to get to make this summer, as my daughter is on a travel fastpitch softball team.... seems like every weekend we are off to somewhere. They travel all over the western states...

Its tough with work, kids, coaching sports.... I am doing it all right now...

Not to mention it ain't cheap to travel and shoot these things

Trying to steal away this weekend to shoot the 2nd leg of IBO NTC. First, chance this year I've had to shoot a national tournament, and I have to drive back and forth over two days due to other family commitments.

Shooting any tournament is certainly a sacrifice of time,money,vehicle wear and tear...but we all love it.

I need to find some people to travel with...that split expenses!!!

Ren, family comes first PERIOD!!!!!!!
I commend you and your wife, a military family has a lot of built in stress a civilian family doesn't. I feel your pain, training, deployments, hardship tours, combat deployments. A lot of people doesn't understand military training is 30, 60 and 90 days a pop, not including deployments.
I respect your decision, you and your wife.
I still hope to see you in Vegas. I can make one big shoot a year due to family and finances. Vegas I get to shoot then Cindy gets the rest of the day so we are both happy. Better than going to a shoot and she's bored and miserable.

You do what's best for you and your family everything else is trivial.
Your doing what's right no matter what others think.

Family comes first, missing one this weekend I have made 10 yrs in a row cause the grandkids are in. Choice wasnt hard, a one yr old and three year old wins out over the likes of Matt or Cal hands down. Even with a bad diaper, they smell better

Dewayne, I found you a ride to split expenses with. Cal just told me he's picking it up next week.





You'll arrive in style at Trad Worlds like no one else, except Cal.
