Sorry for the delay in posting these. My schedule had me return home to pack for heading to the NRA Whittington Center near Raton, New Mexico for a combined practice of the U.S. Palma Team and U.S. Veterans team. As such, my Sunday was taken up with travel, and Monday during the day with running the practice. I will get awards ordered as soon as my schedule permits.
