    I spoke with Donna at GSSF today, and she said the drawing for the pistol is going to be a quarterly drawing, and not one per match. She also said they don't know when the first drawing will be.

    Oh well.

    That's a bummer. I dragged three buddies to Richmond (not exactly kicking and screaming) in the hopes of getting my name in the pot three times. I guess I was just misinformed. I thought it was going to be per match. Oh well. My secret plan to stake out gun shops and shooting ranges to fuel GSSF impressment (ala the British Navy) just went down the tubes.

    I think we all need to check GSSFONLINE a little more often , if you go to the Hot Topics section, the have already drawn the first three match winners for bringing in new members.

    Well, since Donna is GSSF, and I talked to her directly, I assumed that her words represented GSSF. Perhaps I was wrong. Sorry.

    I guess I just plain missed that yesterday, no excuses. Back to my plans for massive impressment!!

    I'm little concerned that someone calls and speaks to an employee and the same day something completely different is put up on the web......what the hell is going on there?

    I'm not blaming Donna, as she gave me good intel last week on the scores being posted this week. Seems to be some internal communication problems in Smyrna.

    Maybe they're just being responsive to your online complaints.

    Nobody was wrong. They're human & very busy and I'm betting that when you called it was exactly as she said. The notice about the drawing winners wasn't posted till late afternoon anyway; I check that site 2-3 times a day when I can - was looking for a downloadable copy of the new rules. In the current dynamic environment tho' GJM89's advice is sound. Many folks have questions and I'm betting that they're peddling just as fast as they can to get everything out for the season and sorta get it caught up to speed. :)

    They have no vested interest in delaying information. But as fast as this stuff gets spread & cussed/discussed, I can understand their interest in making sure that when they DO post something it's solid intel because it can have ramifications. I, for one, am going to relax a bit, being just tickled to have some decent shooting weather for the weekend.

    The new member drawing is a great idea.

    The original plan was to post quarterly the winners of the individual drawings from the prior quarter.;)
