Let ‘em Have It!!!!!!!!

Saturday we had the

1st Annual PDJ “Let ‘em Have It” Shoot Out

I named it “Let ‘em Have it” Shoot Out, because Peyton and one of his friends would holler that at each other when they were shooting.  I told them they should have their own hunting show and “Let ‘em Have it” should be the name of it.   We are hoping to make this an annual event to raise money for the scholarship fund.  My vision for this is big and I am looking forward to going public with it next year!!!  I will be recruiting LOTS of volunteers to help out.

Here are some pics from Saturday.  We appreciate everyone who came out.

I couldn’t help thinking how much Peyton would have enjoyed this event.  In my mind, I can see in detail how he held his rifle.  This memory brought some heartache, but it also brought comfort.  I’ve said this many times, but the biggest fear after Peyton went to Heaven, was the fear of forgetting.  The memory of him holding is rifle assured me I will not forget.  There are so many things I remember in vivid detail and I am grateful.   

We also ate lots of deer chili and shared some hugs too.  Oh yeah, Tom won the competition.  Something was said about home field advantage, but I’m sure that wasn’t it.  He’s just good. :)

Thanks for reading!!!!

What a fun day. I know what you mean about forgetting. You don't want to forget and yet it hurts to remember. I'm glad you had such a great day.

My random thoughts:
Tom is a marksman.
Your chili was the best chili I've ever had.
I love the event idea and BIG vision you have for it. :)
