1. My shooting range, which was supposed to reopen "sometime mid-November," is now saying "We hope to reopen Tuesday Nov. 26." Kindly note the use of the word "hope". Call me a fuddy-duddy, but I firmly believe that hope has no place in any kind of logistical planning: If you have to resort to "hoping" you will open at such-and-such a date, clearly you're being run by incompetents. Either get it done on time, or admit that you have no clue and just leave it open-ended by saying "It gets done when it gets done." Continually pushing back the date does not fill me with confidence.
As an aside, who wants to bet that this will be done before Christmas? I've got even money that it won't be finished before the first of the year.
2. All the raffle winners have been matched up with all the donors. While I cannot state with authority that everything is in the mail (heck, I still have to get down to the P.O. to mail out the three prizes I have in my possession), I think it's safe to say that all winners should receive their prizes before the end of the month. If December rolls around and you haven't received your winnings, please contact me and I will immediately work to fix it.
