I just had the privilege of spending a day with julie G. and Dave S. sharing a squad at a match in my area. I had met them both at GSSF matches previoulsy, but this was the first time I had to observe them do what they do best. What impressed me even more than their incredible shooting prowess, was their ability to connect with the fans and staff throughout the day. They both fielded countless inquires, handshakes and requests for pictures with smiles and genuine appreciation for the shooters, ROs and spectators. I've always tried to express my thanks to the range staff for their hard work at matches, but my feeble attempts paled to the special effort shown by these two champions. They never left a stage without first shaking the hand of every range officer present and thanking them for their work. This was just one example of many ways they demonstrated their excellence. I picked up several great shooting tips but I also learned much about good sportsmanship as well. They are true ambassadors for Glock and the shooting sports in general. I had an opportunity to discuss the GSSF program briefly with them at the end of the day. They expressed nothing but a positive outlook for the future. They realize that some of the changes recently adopted have been met with resistance by a few of the members but emphasized that they were done with the long term goal of continuing to provide a sport that rewards performance excellence while encouraging new participants to join the game. Several recent posts have suggested that our best course of action would be to support GSSF in these efforts to plan for the future. I for one would like to express my appreciation for the generosity of Glock in sponsoring the GSSF program. How many other manufacturers do as much for the shooting community? And a personal thank you to Julie and Dave for so capably demonstrating to the public the best of what our sport has to offer. Sharon Z. Glock's Range Program Manager was also in attendance, administering a new GSSF indoor league shoot in my area. GSSF is strong and growing in northern KY. Thanks again Sharon and GSSF!
