  • Rendezvous with no winners, other than aggregate?

    Went to a Rendezvous this Memorial Weekend. It was a fun shoot and we had a good time, (the boss lady and I LOL) There were 90+ shooters so attendance was pretty good. At the awards ceremony this afternoon I was quite surprised when the sponsoring unit started calling out the aggregate winners and that was it.
    No first- third place rifle, men or women..
    No first-third place pistol, men or women
    No first-third place hawk and Knife, men or women.

    Now this is Washington State, has political correctness ruined muzzle loading shooting competition at Rendezvous in the Northwest?
    anyone else seen this recently?

    You're probably lucky they hadn't had to add "Trans" to the Mens & Women's categories.

      Much like many socialist beliefs like where after a kid's soccer game ends and both sides congratulate each other for playing. And there is never "a winner" declared because everyone's an "achiever". Turning boys into.... Ok, I'm not going there, I'll puke. It's simply the breeding of a nation of wimpy sheep.

      Just my redneck Texas opinion....

        Asking around with some of the really old timers, this club has been doing their rendezvous this way for years. So, it's their show, their rules. We still had fun.

            And then they all go to Starbucks, have a latte, and express how they feel. Discuss trans-powders where black powder can change to a mild form of sugar-based powder if it feels like it was born that way.

            Pardon me, I think I've got a liberal movement about to happen!

                I run for beer, because running is no fun.
