Thanks to all who braved the threat of rain to come to our first match of the 2008 season. As it turned out, we started out a bit cold and cloudy, but the sun came out after the first stage and it warmed up nicely - not a drop of rain! Somebody must be looking out for us.

Thanks again and we all look forward to seeing you again next month.

PS - I'll be setting up an ROI & ROII course for either May or June for those who wish to take them. Once the date is confirmed, I'll be posting it here.

Never in doubt.  I did promise no rain until after 1PM.  As it turned out we had sunshine until we left around three in the afternoon after picking up and closing up.

Now hold on a minute there JJ.  I'll have you know that as a service to my fellow GGPers (?) I took all the rain east with me to New York.

Okay, you want credit? Fine, but remember it's your responsibility to control the weather for all the remaining shoots this year.  No excuses, if you're in town or not, it's your job going forward.

Just looked at the rader and rain is moving across Iowa heading for our range.  If the shoot was tomorrow it would have been rained out.  

Thanks again to all who came out today.

Denny we like your weather on the web site.  We sure didn't know what to expect with the weather
yesterday, but as others have said it was good.

Howdy Pards! I wanted to say what a great time I had at the first shoot of the year. What a great job you fellers did with the range! I was really impressed with the entire set up. I look forward to many more shoots with the Good Guys Posse, you truly are The Good Guys!

Thanks for the kind words, JR. We've got some great, hard working cowboys on the Posse and we're all mighty proud of the job they did.
