I was sort of critized by non-m/cists.
BEAUTIFUL day, fellow shooter does not see me around at the range, 'phones meonly no answer & says to some others "I guess Bob is on his motorcycle".
Only I turn up 15 minutes before official opening time as he had failed to realize no matter how good it is outside I still run the h/gun range every Sunday of every week of the year & make that a plural like 24 years bar hospital matters, sickness & such.
Only a week after busting my left hip I was at the range, on crutches, with the help of a fellow shooter till I was able to drive myself ---- true I sat down to shoot rather then normal standing position.
On same yr only Boxing Day trap shoot & indoor rifle I ran the latter from 9:00am till 3:00pm with only three cups of coffee, bowl of soup & hamburger made upstairs ------- I handed out ammo, targets, took in targets to score, decided who were the winners, give them the prizes, etc. Just had two others to help me being one in the morning & one in the afternoon. Yes I took care of any jammed rifles, bolt problems, etc., all from that one seating position & my hip killing me. Crumbs I did not even have a piss. Still that is volunteer dedication that I have given to this Club since back in '75 ot '76.
No matter how good it is outside I leave Sundays to the working stiffs for riding or driving while I run the h/gun range -----still it was tempting.
Man I really wanted to ride as a lot of blokes out & riding mainly Cruiser/Harley type, std bikes to, I believe, one sportbike I saw while drive to the range & back again between 10:00am & 2:00pm.
