Australian Team would like to say Thank You

Post by russ4570 » Sat Aug 04, 2018 3:23 pm

The Australian Lever Action Team consisting of Kim Knapp, Darius Krivanek and Myself (with chief support team Sue Knapp) Would like to thank all those that we met and that helped us over the last two weeks during the awesome events that were the Lever Action Silhouette Nationals for 2018.
First and foremost Id like to thank the Australian SSAA (Sporting Shooters Association of Australia) for making the trip possible.
Thanks to Aaron Farmer for the official NRA invite that allowed us to join you all in the first instance.
A big shout out to Jeanie Ring for all the hard work in the background to run the match so well.
Most importantly a great big thanks to all the range staff, Taps and Line officers that ran the match so efficiently and had us finished before the afternoon storms were able to effect the proceedings.

For all those that we met and chatted with I hope to see you all again in the future. Some great friendships have been made. For those that we didn't chat with I would love to sit with you and discuss the finer details of our crazy country next time.

Thanks to all.
Regards Russ Teale (Russ4570)

I was lucky enough to visit Australia twice during my military service. Both times it took me a couple of days to become familiar with their lingo. In Same for Raton. Enjoyed meeting you guys. Here are a couple of pix for your scrapbook.

Hey Russ4570,

Out of interest and national pride how did the Aussie team end up on the score board?

We were in AAA for the teams matches and we did pretty well. 2 firsts and a second place in the three matches.
Overall very happy with the result. Was a great environment and atmosphere shooting against the Top Shots.
