I've had a sllight change of heart.  IF possible, rather than be #100, I'd officially request to be considered for #99 or #101.  (But ANY membership to this fine organization is fine - I just have got a new personal reason for wanting one of these numbers.  IF possible.  Thanks!!)

LL, You need to contact John Torrance AKA TRAP. He is the Brother who organized. You will need to send him a copy of a current dues card.

Or you could show up at the NCOWS National Match (June 8-11) at Evansville Indiana.  There are going to be multiple inductions; probably on Friday evening.

Any idea when the list will be updated?  I'd like to know whether I'm officially #105 so I can call Star Packer.

I was understanding at the H.R. initiation that his confuser pproblems were past us.  He said the list should be up by the following Wednesday.  That was a week ago.

I'm not bitchin' ... I'm just proud and anxious.

And I want to be SURE I got #105 before I call Star Packer!

 Wink


(Since I didn't have enough Masonic seniority to get 99, 100, or 101, I picked 105 ... as in 105 mm Main Gun, #68 (IIRC) the size of the gun on the M1 Abrams tank when they first appeared.  Now the M1A1s & A2s (like I took to Iraq) have 120 mm guns.  But that number was too far in the future.

 Grin

IF you're interested, here's a brief rundown on the 105 mm and a short film about the newer 120 mm guns.

Well, Rats.  Trap was going to nskip 104 - IF possible - so I could have #105.  I guess it was too confusing to have one out of sequence.

The IMPORTANT part ISN'T the number.  I'm proud and grateful to have been accepted

If you are a western action shooter, and will be near Louisville Ky the 16-18 of Mar, Hiram's Rangers will be Inducting new recruits. You will need to be attired in 19th Century clothing and be able to prove you are a member of the brotherhood.

All this will take place at the NCOWS National Conxention. Go to the NCOWS board here on CC for all the details on the convention. You do not have to be a memberof NCOWS to attend.

We are going through consolidation with another lodge but once things settle out there will be at least one new ranger I will be in touch.

Howdy, Brothers!

This isn't specifically a Hiram's Rangers post, but I'm so proud and I need a place to share my news with my friends and Brother Masons.

I had the honor & joy of raising my Son into our Masonic Brotherhood this past Saturday!  (8 Feb.2014)  After talking and making the decisions that go with it, my Son asked me to recommend him into the life of a Free & Accepted Mason.    After all the memory work of both EA and FC, he went through the final steps and now is a Master Mason.  I was able to raise him myself.  Since I'm still relatively new at this, I didn't realize that I COULD actually be a part of the ceremony, but my friend, Dave "Jed Cooper" Hollandsworth, or (now former) PM of Wayne Guthrie Lodge #753 called me Friday evening to ask if I wanted to be more than just a spectator, so after explaining that I certainly could do the deed, I happily said "Yes!"

My Son, Gareth is a shooter, but not a CAS shooter so I beg your indulgence and let me announce how proud I am of this honor and share my joy with the rest of you, my Brothers!  As he gets older has gotten more of an interest in history and so perhaps some day he will become an NCOWS member himself and will be able to become a Hiram's Ranger himself.  Right now, his historical interests lie more in keeping with his Scottish heritage (my Wife is from Glasgow, Scotland) but perhaps he will get more into the history of MY country, the good ol' U.S . of A, and then learn of the Olde West era like his old Dad.  (Who seems & feels old enough to have BEEN part of the Olde West, sometimes!  Wink )

Thanks, Brothers - and I hope to see you all at the NCOWS Convention or at least at the 2014 NCOWS National Shoot. 


Respectfully,

I hope they join.  It took me over 20 years from the time I first got interested to when I actually joined, so there is still a good possibility for them to join.
