    Gator skirmish

    Thanks for posting the Gator invitation and schedule far enough in advance so our company members can adjust their work schedules for their trip to the Fort. Wish more would post far enough in advance for better attendance planning.

    Everyone must remember that Linwood can only post these when he receives them! If he receives them late, they get posted late.

    Again, the Shoot Schedule for 2018 has been posted since the board approved it. Why do you need the invite to schedule your shoots? Our team has this done by our annual meeting in November.
    This is a much to do about nothing. Move on.

    To the post of P. Altland, I've explained this several times in the past to which you keep responding. Events and times offered makes a difference whether some of our guys may attend. As you should know, this information isn't on the schedule. Because they work shifts and vacation time or their ability to alter their shift is limited, they have to make a decision on whether they want to attend that particular skirmish. They won't know that until the schedule of the skirmish gets posted. And yeah, I understand that before it can be posted, it has to be submitted by the hosts. It's a matter of the skirmish hosts submitting the schedule early enough for other skirmishers to make a decision to attend and alter work schedules. Chewing the same cabbage here way too many times.

    Sounds like maybe youíre volunteering to take that load from Linwood and hound Host Teams for their invites submissions.

    And..... I love cabbage

    Host team invitations are posted on our website and BB as courtesy to our membership. The Board of Directors approve the skirmish listing at the January board meeting. Fort Shenandoah Skirmishes are approved at the August meeting and will be posted online as soon as I receive the listing. Host teams may post on their regional or team websites. This is their option. The listing that is posted from the BoD meetings do not provide the details of each skirmish like the invitations do.

    i hope this clears this subject up.

    Why does anyone need to hound anyone, it's up to them(teams) to send in the info, Linwood post what he gets, not his
    duty to ask or hound any team. Sometimes dates change. Linwood is doing this to keep whoever
    wants to know informed weather the invite get's summitted one month or one day before the said Skirmish.

    Thanks Linwood

    I donít know how, in such a short post, your comprehension can be that far off. My point was that Mr. Sheppard doesnít believe enough is being done to inform members of his unit, in a manner which he feels is timely, of upcoming skirmishes. Apparently, decisions about attendance and vacation are unique to his unit, unlike the majority of members in the organization who are independently wealthy and can come and go at will, free of the constraints of a job (sarcasm inserted). My suggestion, rather than pounding on his keyboard at Linwood, is he take the approved skirmish schedule, once approved by the BoD in January, and seek out each host unit for submission of their invite. He then supply those invites to Linwood for posting. If his sniping is an indicator that he can do better, take up the task, volunteer and letís see. Maybe then he will have a clearer understanding of the breakdown.


    Clear enough?

    Invitations? I always take the approved Skirmish schedule when the BOD approves it and load it into my computer. And the Nationals are predictable. For 2019, the only real question I have is the date for the Spring Potomac Regional.
