The very first thing
I would like to do is thank everyone who worked to make our shoot
another big success. No one deserves more thanks than B4K's own Rob
Crampton. Rob not only worked hard at organizing the shoot to make
it a success but he put in 3 grueling days out in the sun making sure
everyone had a good time and that things ran smoothly. Rob is the
perfect example of "when the going gets tough, the tough get
going". Rob doesn't just talk the talk, he walks the walk too.
Thank you my friend. I love ya man.
There's no way I can
name everyone involved in making the shoot what it is, but there are
some who deserve special thanks. Folks like Dave, Marnie and Joel
Atherton, Mike and Joy Jeanette, Dan Worden, Dave and Terry Dalton,
Randy and Cheryl Krick, Edsel Duty, John McIntosh, Bill and Rhonda
Guoine, Mark Pray, Peggy and Lee Morrow and of course the Dago. These
folks and more when above and beyond the call of duty to help our
kids, our future. To all of you my heartfelt thanks.
Then of course there
are all of those who helped by donating equipment for our auction
and prizes and those who sponsored targets. Many of these folks give
year after year. Without their generousity what we do would be so
much harder. Please know that what all of you do from your hearts
As always there seemed
to be some incredibly special moments with lots of tears and smiles.
I think this years favorites were our visit on Saturday by Mark Austin
and his family and then the presentation of the decked out bow to
Mark from Convenient Sportsman and Mark's hunt from B4K. That was
followed closely by Lee Morrow presenting Dago with the first "Benefit4Kids
Commemorative Knife" and then closing with Noah Hufford receiving
3rd place in the Tykes class.
Even though our shoot
was up against 2 other local shoots, the IBO Worlds and unfortunately
scheduled the same weekend as MBH Rendezvous we were still able to
raise a total of $9,640 for the kids. So once again I thank all of
you who helped to make our shoot a success.
