And some things might look simple, except when you tackle the thankless job of herding cats! LOL!
My lovely Veronika has taken the task, every year since Norway, three years ago, to have some pins made for the Team USA members to exchange with other shooters and the public in general. It is a VERY European thing to do. Funny thing is that you have to "choose your audience". When you exchange pins with other shooters, MOST of the time, they will give you a pin of their Club or their RGB, when you exchange pins with the general public, the pins are more related to places and nations, rather than the narrow shooting world we live in.
And in this sense, the pins Team USA has taken to the World's are now a collection series. Always a figure clearly alluding to the locality where the World's is being contested and also an allusion to the American Flag, the Stars and Stripes.
Too many bad examples around the world that are not needed exist of people creating bad feelings. We keep our civility, manners and courtesy. Without forgetting who we are.
Some of you have seen the choice of shirts in my previous note about the NERFTC's at Crosman, where Team USA took First place and Team Canada took Second. Closely contested no doubt. I am sure that if Tom Peretti had shot as well at Crosman's as he shot at the Canadian Nationals (he took 1st in Piston), we would have been in deep trouble! LOL!
And with uniforms, of course, nametags have to be made, otherwise, whose shirt is whose?
I will keep you all posted.
