We should have a "best Hawaiian shirt" contest. :lol:

Thank you so much Mr. Cotton. It was very informative.

Thank you carlson1 for making it happen.

I wonder who traveled the farthest? I came from southwest Fort Worth. Surely someone drove farther than that.

Mr. Cotton did a fantastic job. Thank you to all who attended. You made everything great. A seminar with no students would not be good!

Carl, thanks for opening up your church and hosting this event!

Charles, thanks for coming and sharing your time with us!

Rey, thanks for bringing the cookies!

There were so many there that I wanted to visit with, and didn't get around to nearly as many as I wanted to. We need an excuse to get the DFW folks together again soon. Too many friends, too little time.

Like maybe Denton, Waxahachie, and Weatherford (just that I know of).

Yep, a very worthwhile evening. Thanks very much Carl and Charles for making it happen in this area.

I want to thank Chas. Cotton for his outstanding presentation last night... his explainations of some of the more obscure points of law were particularly valuable...

Thanks Charles... it was great... always enjoy meeting the "man" in person.

I want to give my thanks as well.

First to Charles for taking his time to make the trip to give the seminar. It was very enlightning. Thanks also for all you do for the various groups, NRA, TSRA and IDPA. Without people like you, we most likely would not have the RKBA.

Seond to Carlson1 for opening up his church to allow us a place to meet. It's not often that a pastor would allow a seminar of this nature in their church, much less be a participant in it. Carl, you have a very nice church and I intend to do a return visit for worship.

Thanks to Rey, Greybeard and anyone else that brought the refreshments. Steve and Jason really missed out (but we won't tell them huh).

And finally, to everyone that came. Without you nice folks there would have been no seminar. It was great to see those that I've already met again as well as meeting all of the people I've never met.

So to all of you---THANK YOU

I think it was Chalres who drove the furthest, but I'm sure he took the lesat amount of seat time to get there :grin:

Great presentation..........gets you thinking, for sure. It actually answered a few questions and brought a few up as well. I'll see if I can get my thoughts on paper later to the gun show!!!

Great to see alot of friends and make a few new ones. Always great to spend time with such fine, admirable people." onclick=";return false;

I've been a forum lurker for a while, but the seminar motivated me to go ahead and register. Thanks to all who made it possible. Mr. Cotton, even though the seminar went from 7-10 p.m., I could have listened for another two hours!
