I think I found My Click!

So here at the big ol'school of learnin, they had this open house where you can walk around and see all the organizations you want to join. As I was walking, I skimmed the booths lining the gym, each falling short of my personal tastes.
Walking aimlessly along, hopes dashing with every "cheer club", "music club", or the infamous "water polo team", I saw it. The red streaking banner tucked back in a corner, with two guys lazily passing out flyers to whomever peaked an interest. I stalked over, attempting to mask my enthausiasm, and smiled as the boy handed me a flyer and said "pistol team try-outs are until the 23rd". I'm not going to lie, I giggled.
Apparently here at the big ol' school of learnin, there is a shooting range underneath one of the buildings. This is the location of the pistol team. It is a group of young adults who are handy with a hand gun, who compete in competitions. There is a female group, a coed group, and a male group.
Back when the parents were trying to get us into 4H, I tried out a few times for a rifle team. I would have made it, but you know how those 4H parents get. So I settled for the occasional target practice. I'm pretty sharp with a rifle, and have some experience with handguns, so I'm hoping I make the cut. If I don't, which there is a possiblilty I don't, there is also a skeet team I found shortly after, and a paintballing team that would be a blast to be a part of.
The main idea here is to get involved. There are these organizations called "Flo's" which are Freshman Leadership Organizations. There are Thirteen of them, and each only take about sixty freshman. With 8000 freshman in attendance this year, there is a slight possibilty I wont get into one, so I have the back up plan such as the paintballing team, and if necessary, there is a few volunteering clubs I'm signing up for.

UPDATE: As of right now, the fire that was near campus yesterday was extinguished, and there are no immediate threats. In case of an emergency, I have an evacuation plan and back-up evacuation plan. And my trusty BOB :)
Keep the fires in your prayers. God bless y'all.


  1. I hope you make one of the shooting teams, BEB. That would be fun AND hone your skills at the same time!

    : )

  2. Good luck with the tryouts. I don't know what you are worried about. I know you will smoke the course.

  3. Good luck, I certain you'll do well. Have fun.

  4. I was on the rifle team in high school. If you need a pistol/rifle, let me know.
