Calendar

Posted by: | Comments (0)

FCS is a growing, dynamic sportsmen’s organization.  For the last 11 years (and 14 out of the previous 16 years), we have had more events than there are weeks in the year or as many events as there are weeks in the year.  As the hunting seasons for specific animals and birds limit event planning, we frequently have several events coinciding.

Wanted to thank both of you for putting on the Upland bird hunt this past weekend.  We had a blast, no pun intended.  Steven did a great job and the gentleman and his two sons who did the hunt were great.  They could not have been more welcoming and fun.  Everyone followed the instructions like we are supposed to and everyone got to shoot and hit a bird or two or more.  When the birds were released the guns were blazing.  Can’t thank you two enough.  It was a lot of fun and hope the next hunt is just as good.

Randy,

Harrison and I went hunting yesterday am at friends place north of Walburg. Excellent morning and I limited and Harrison got 11 – our shooting much better and lots of dove until about 8:30. Great fun – I even hit 2 birds with one shot!

I got invitation to go back out in afternoon and seriously considered it – I already had the birds in the freezer. But then I thought about one of your talks about this very thing and what influence I might have on Harrison and compromise my values – so, I didn’t go.

Just wanted you to know we do hear some of what you say!

Randy,

I was at GHBC for a Tres Dias meeting 2 or 3 years ago when I signed up on your email list. I have enjoyed following you guys and if I ever move to your area count me in. I live in Ft. Worth now. God bless your ministry!

Dear Randy,

You have no idea what the corn & meat & butter means to residents of St. George’s.  Recently the food bank has been cut out.  In the past once a month the Social Worker would go to the Food Pantry & bring food in.

Last month it was hot dogs & buns.

I have been bringing bread home from Mission Possible.

You have no idea of the excitement.  Two ladies regrouped the corn so all could receive.

Bless you!

Patsy M.

President’s note: we donated the left-overs from the 3/31/11 Wild Game Dinner to the residents of St. George’s Court, a low-income housing project for elderly and the handicapped.  One of the residents wrote the following note.

Sirs,

Becky and I had a great time shooting with you all!

Thank you, Randy for setting it up for us to participate in this event!

WHAT A DEAL – all the instruction and clays we could ask for!

The instructors were great. I heard basically the same advice form different instructors in sometimes different ways – which to us reinforced the instruction.

Becky and I got good results.

That was a great end to a near perfect day. Perfect as a close miss followed by breaking many more in a row!

That you all for including us in this event, being fellow sports people, trying to follow His trail.

Harold T.

Hi Randy – I have been meaning to send you a message since Thursday, and I suppose I forgot. I just wanted to say thank you for having me out, I really enjoyed the group. I look forward to getting to know you all better, and I am really looking forward to meeting up with you all at the shooting range as soon as possible. I know I will have a little bit of a struggle on some Saturdays getting someone to watch the kids, but it is definitely possible. At any rate, thanks again, and we will see you soon!

Paul I.
