    but I did to serve on the Bylaws Committee at my sportsmans club.
    If anyone has a file of their range's rules, I would love to receive it. Not reinventing the wheel, etc.
    Thanks in advance.

    Aaaahh, yes... Navy volunteering...

    "Right, you lot! Who can play the piano?"

    Two hands go up.

    "You two - report to the officer's mess and scrub the galley floor!"

    :D

    This isn't my range, but when I go to visit my brother we shoot here and it's the best run range I've ever been too. (all volunteer)

    http://www.basfaz.com/basf_procedures.htm

    Hopefully there's something there that'll help you. They also have a good video on procedures that all "newbies" have to watch. Takes all of 10-15 minutes and makes it perfectly clear what "acceptable" behavior is.

    Regards,
    Dave

    As a former Army Officer, here's the method I used when I needed volunteers.

    "I need three volunteers............You, You, and You." :evil:


    I remember during Basic at Fort Lost in Woods in the State of Misery summer of '83 the Senior Drill at one Sunday morning formation ask for "20 volunteers to become Chopper Pilots." A whole bunch of hands shot up, but not mine, as I could hear the voices of my father and brothers saying: "Don't be First, Don't be Last and Never volunteer for anything."

    About an hour later I saw those twenty poor schmucks cutting the grass on the multi-acre parade ground and several other places around post with old fashioned reel mowers.......yep, they were "chopper" pilots.

    Airborne School 1996:

    SGT Airborne: Who here's got a driver's license?

    Many hand shoot up.

    SGT Airborne: You three come here and drive the buffers waiting on each floor.


    Never, ever, volunteer. Except for Airborne!!!

    Mark

    And if you think we're jumping out of a perfectly good plane, you're dead wrong!

    Bah, beat me to it.

    Now run down to the repair locker and get me an HT-punch, then request permission to blow the DCA.

    That would be NVYA. I think your TLD was broken and the reactor fried your brain shipmate.:)

    Wing do you need me to get you that I D ten T form as well?

    I'll get on that as soon as I find the keys to the jet and gather an exhaust sample.

    Is getting an HT punch like telling someone to go to Ordnance and get a stack of 6531s?

    For us on the Yellowstone it was a BT punch. I went for one ... the BT served me with a hit from a ball peen hammer!!! :eek: It didn't break a bone, but it left a deep bruise for a couple months.

    For you folks here with an Army background:

    Go to Supply, and bring back some BA-1100/NS.

    For the Commo guys:

    A spray can of squelch lube.

    For new privates on the Land Nav course:

    We have some new maps; go ask the 1SG, see if he has any spare grid squares.

    Finally, for Air Defenders:

    We're due for quarterlies today. As part of our PMCS, we need to service the missiles. Go see the 24C's for some Wax, Missile, High-Speed, w/ Compound, Buffing.

    (The best laugh I ever had was when one of our new privates was actually given a jar, with a NSN, filled with an unknown substance, with the above label affixed. :) )

    having come from a completely different background(pizza delivery driver) we had a joke going around the parlor. when we got a new waitress we told them that when its slow to rotate the ice. some would understand that it was a joke immediately but sometimes........ we had a poor girl doing that for almost a year before the owner saw her and chewed her out for doing it.

    when i was a kid i was in a group home. we used to get the same kid to go check the mail every sunday afternoon. he went and checked the mail for us for 2 years every sunday when we asked him to go look for us.
