THE END OF THE TMA POSTAL MATCHES

Unless someone wishes to take over in 2023, this year will be the last of the TMA Postal Matches.

A huge round of applause for RobD. He certainly went above and beyond in his postal match offerings this year. The targets were fair and challenging and two of them were brand new. It's unfortunate that so few TMA'ers took the time, even just once, to see what the postal was all about. Rob will be sorely missed. Good luck to Ohio Joe next year; you will be facing an uphill battle. Thanks again, Rob!

Good job, Rob! :applaud :shake
Joe, with your years of experience, I have no doubt you will do a Bang Up (pardon the pun) Job. :hairy

Rob did a good job in my opinion.

You can offer up a program, but you can't control how many take part in the program.

Also, lets not forget we're going (and have been going) through a Powder shortage, and also everything to feed these smoke poles are all higher priced these days... IMHO, no NMD can control these things / which most likely has had a direct impact on participation...

I for one thank Rob for taking this on, as I know he's a busy man with all area's of not only the TMA, but his personal things he (like the rest of us) enjoy in life... So, once again, thanks Rob!  :shake

We'll shoot something in 2023, and hopefully the folks will be able to jump in and take part.

Add my Thanks to both Rob and Joe. I was too volunteer but add me as a back up or assistant or alternate or whatever you want to call it.
I'm  not  H/C or P/C or even a particularly  good shot but I have a hell of a good time!

Dedicated to the TMA.

Nessmuk, If you would like the position - I personally would be very happy to step a' side my friend and would truly 100% support the move. I only volunteered because I truly didn't know if anyone was going to step up.

If you would like the position, it's 100% fine with me. I feel you would bring some light into the postal match game and it's always good to have our members involved.

What do you say BoD? I say we give the position to Nessmuk if'n he still wants it.  :hairy
