Thanks XL - Yo Ho Ho and a bottle of Rum!

Preferably Old Monk, Old Cask or Khoday's - (we don't get any here in Canada - my next target - bring them in - :D ) brilliant stuff!

Sorry gentlemen, I haven't been able to acknowledge all the lovely comments and repartee's - I truly do acknowledge the interest and appreciation.

My company's retail format schedules unfortunately, have left me with little remaining, usable muzzle velocity over the last few days. I apologize, I shall make up for it on Wed and then on the long Thanksgiving weekend here Sat, Sun and Mon.

What great fun and camaraderie - thank you, thank you! I am looking forward to the next meet wherever! :cheers:

The video link is a double whammy because after the end, the "similar videos" link also shows the video of CK and Baljit shooting in Kelowna.

I would like to thank Mark and his family for hosting this meet. It is a big deal for someone to open up their house and put up with a large crowd descending on them, even if it is only for a weekend. Mark, Jennifer and their children made us all feel very welcome. I can't thank them enough for that. I also want to thank all who made it for taking the trouble to drive and fly from such distances to make this meet. I hope that future meets will have more IFG members attending.

It was a memorable weekend and it was great to see Mark, Amit, Baljit, CK and Haji in person. I would also like to thank Baljit for presenting me with a cap and shirt from his British Columbia IPSC chapter.
