Howdy all,

For over ten years now, these rascals have kept me as President of the Good Guys Posse. It has been a lot of fun and a lot of work. But most of all, it has been wonderful associating with the finest group of shooters one could ever meet.

I have always been of the mind that the folks on the scene should be making the decisions. And since I haven't been "on the scene" much lately, I have resigned as president. At the Annual Meeting of Good Guys Posse, Inc. yesterday, the BOD (Rough Riders) unanimously elected Shamrock to to fill the vacancy. I know Shamrock will do an outstanding job.

I'll still be around, serving on the BOD and managing the website. Hopefully, I'll make a few matches when my legs and knees aren't giving me problems.

Let's give a big welcome to Shamrock!!  :yahoo: :yahoo:

Would you please run for President of the United States, DD? Our country could use a good deal of your style of executive management.

Thank you for all your work.

Time to go butter up the new President.

What Orrin said.
I've known you since before the GGP and can really appreciate all the hard work and hours you have devoted to this sport so the rest of us could have fun.
Thanks for all you did Denny, be looking for you down the trail.
Again, Thank You.

DD, I always really enjoyed you and the rest of the gang back when I lived in WI.  You helped me get started in SASS as well as my son Brad, Lt. B. R. Sharps.  Appreciate all of  your hard work and effort.  Good luck to you.  Hope I get back to WI sometime when the shoot is on so I can stop in.
