Congratulations to Randy Arrowood: New Georgia Section Coordinator

10489985_10203010361394802_4568350778631277726_nPlease join me in congratulating (or symphathizing with?) the next Section Coordinator of the Georgia Section GA-05, Mr. Randy Arrowood.

Randy will be assuming his new position immediately. Randy has had his finger on the pulse of USPSA for quite a while now and will bring you a new level of positive guidance and leadership that will benefit the several clubs of the Georgia Section and their members.

Also at this time, please welcome, as the new President and Contact for South Atlanta Practical Shooting Club, Mr. Clint VanHoy. SAPSC has grown and prospered under Randy’s leadership and I’m confident it will continue to do so for Clint.

And lastly, thank you for having me as your Section Coordinator for the last eight years. It has been an honor and a privilege to have served. I have watched with satisfaction as the several clubs have grown and prospered and have no doubt they will continue to do so, and then some, with Randy at the helm.

Thank you for all that you have done and continue to do for our sport.

Regards,

Bill Noyes
Former Section Coordinator
Georgia Section, GA-05

4th Annual Jamaica Invitational

This match looked like a great event and looked worth while to post. While technically not in Area 6, a lot of Area 6 people took home wood.  Chris Tilley has regained the Open championship, and Frank Garcia took Production, with Orville Henriques on top of Limited. Can’t wait to hear the stories. Jamaica TV Video here. (forward to 10:44)
