    "what a waste of time reading this mess"
    I agree. I think the team that came to the line wearing Togas at one of the Nationals years back had the right idea. A lot cheaper and a lot cooler.
    But if they were a legal uniform someone would be auguring over what thread count sheet was legal and what thread count sheet was not.
    Ridiculous

    A team wearing togas, now that's confidence.

    JR and Ron,
    It seems you must have liked 360 count pure Egyptian cotton. I just think members should at least resemble the appearance of US Civil War soldiers, not rodeo clowns.
    For you,
    Phil

    What about CSA Civil War soldiers? May we resemble rodeo clowns...? 

    The Togas that were worn at the Nationals were not worn on the line shooting, but rather later on for the Awards Ceremony, "All Hail Jim Brady, Maximus.....!"

    Don,
    Good point, I should have written," AMERICAN" Civil War soldiers. Both sides need to take a long look.

    Smoothborius Glorius Maximus

    I remember that. It was a nice procession down to the awards ceremony to get the smoothbore distinguished award. I didn't know it was going to happen and my whacko team guys all dutifully Roman'd up with the help of my darlin' wife surprised me. After sprucing up my uniform I came out of the camper to find the procession lined up and ready. It was all very solemn and dignified(?). We proceeded down through artillery road, across the foot bridge, through all of sutlers row, across the main bridge to the ceremony all the while one of my "Lictors" (look that one up) repeating, "Make way for Smoothborius Glorius Maximus. All Hail Smoothborius Glorius Maximus!" It was very nice.

    I meant to add that we didn't shoot in togas. Togas are not cool and are actually very cumbersome and difficult to properly put on and wear. Donning them was not a one person job.
