    Greetings to all. It is my distinct honor and pleasure to announce the US Palma Team for New Zealand 2019.

A heartfelt thanks to all, and a warm congratulations to those listed below.

    Captain: Norm Anderson
    Adjutant: Ray Raymond Gross
    Main Coach: Lane Buxton
    Line Coach: Steve Hardin
    Line Coach: Kent Reeve
    Line Coach: Emil Praslick

    Congratulations!

    What's the best way for the rest of us to keep track of what's going on in NZ 2019? Is there any chance it might be televised?

    I highly doubt it’ll be televised! There’s not a lot of concentrated, visual action to this sport. It’s NOT like NASCAR or baseball, after all.

    BUT the NZ club is quite good at posting each day’s results to the web so that’s one option.

    Depending on how things go for the participants (US Teams: Under 25, Palma and Veterans) we ought to be able to look forward to comments posted here, on Mia Rhode’s Life of a Shooters Wife, and even on Facebook I suspect.

    Good ideas, thank you. I wonder if there would be a way to broadcast the banter between coaches and shooters... that could be pretty interesting. Get some shots of flag movement, and if the weather's right, catch some vapor trails too! I'd watch that.

    Who is Erik Rhode????

    I know who he is. I am looking for a new way to troll him. It is a new sport for me.:)

    That is a really good group of shooters and coaches.

    I think he's some hack from way up north; Minnesota or Sakatchewan or something? I heard that he totally faked his way onto the roster.
