Every Dog has its Day
Just kidding, it sounds like Drum had a good day as did everyone else.
Great to hear it was a fun day.

Yeah, there is more than a little hyperbole, albeit generous and gratefully accepted.
Anyone who has experienced the "typical Drum stuff" must know that there was no way I was "charging" downhill (what ever could stop my resulting momentum?) and I certainly did not "run" uphill either. I did the old "MacArthur Walk" so casually and convincingly that one of my "victims", seeing me standing next to a ref discussing the whereabouts of the tape line, asked me if I was "alive or not", so I shot him. (Later, I explained to the kid that the best rule of thumb is to shoot first and ask questions later, especially if there is no evident BBD - I am sure he appreciated the advice)
I did have the significant advantage of BretG/Spydrmn brass on my shoulder, but I only shot out 2-3 with my bolt-action during these two "best" games, instead surrendering a slew of newbs with a very scary looking (I am sure) two handed grip on my Tib (which I learned from watching TJ Hooker) and bellowing surrender commands. I barely fired a shot all day with my Tib, but did hit a guy in some desperation fire after he got the drop on me and fired first.
Finally, I only "ran" the flag once. The second grab, I utilized some young legs nearby for the run.
Still, I am most honored by the creative description that BretG posted. I feel like Winston Churchill must have felt the first time he was ever "mentioned in dispatches".
What a great day with a great group of guys.
Looking forward to Nov. 11.
