    Once again my daughters will be working at the Members' Services desk in the entry building. Along with myself, we will be happy to help if you are in need of a new membership card or need a question answered. If we don't know the answer, we will find someone who does know! If you are replacing an ATA card, you MUST have PHOTO identification. This is for your own protection, anyone with your card can access your pay off check. This is fair warning, we plan on being polite and courteous and expect everyone else to be the same. So, if you come in all hot, tired, and cranky....take a minute, have a cold drink and take a deep breath....I won't tolorate the verbal abuse that was demonstrated by some shooters last year.

    There is NO WAY or NO REASON you should put up with impolite patrons. I'm sure that you do a great service to us shooters and all who attend the festivities. Put those who can't or won't extend to you the same degree of respect that you and your staff provide to them in their place! My grandpa taught me a long time ago that one catches more flies with honey than one does with vinegar. Thanks for all you do.

    Sincerely,

    If you are running a lost and found you can tell them that is managed by Helen Hunt. If they can't find what they are looking for they can go to Helen Hunt for it.

    Aw Heck, if I can't provide a little verbal abuse when I'm hot, tired and cranky then I'm not going. Boy, the rules we have to put up with anymore.

    I agree. If anyone could handle a crappy attitude, it would be Karla.

    I was appalled at the way some shooters treated the girls last year. The shooters must realize that there are valid reasons why rules are put in place, and that the volunteers are only abiding by the rules.

    It's really a shame when these young girls show more maturity than an older shooter.

    Nice to know I have so many at my back....to answer a few questions, yes you can get your cart sticker at the member services desk. Thanks for the offer, but my man, Jack, while he appears to be perfect for the part, really isn't needed, YET...I think I can keep the peace without too much help. I have decided I am too old and fat to put up with any bad attitudes. I feel I have earned a little peace and pleasantness in my life, and I will have it if I have to strangle someone to get it. Having spent the last 3 days in pain with a bad tooth, I am about a quart low on patience. I promise to be nice and play well with others, but I'm prepared for those of you who act ugly, so this is fair warning....come the Grand and have a great time.

    Karla,
    You and the girls do a great job and I appreciate it. I am about ready to leave for the Grand and look forward to seeing you and those wonderful daughters of yours!
    I am leaving tomorrow evening and shooting my way there. Two clubs Saturday, one club after Church Sunday, and one club on Monday. Be there Monday night or Tuesday. Got to get warmed up to try to beat your husband.....yeah right.

    Keep up the good work and I hope your tooth is better.
