"Dale is an incredible volunteer. Not only is he the chair of the largest event that has ever been held in North Carolina, but he stepped in to chair another event as well. When Dale comes to a banquet, his first question is, 'Where do you need me to help?' He will step in and assist with games, set up, and tear down. His events are run very professionally; his committee is ready to get tickets and tables sold to make sure the events raise plenty of money for 'these youngins.' Since this was my first year as a Field Representative, Dale has help tremendously to make sure all of the banquets were successful.
In addition to his role as the committee chair, Dale auctioneered for 19 of my events this past year. He is fun to be around and really entertains the crowd when he runs the auction. Then when it comes to grants, he makes sure that applicants are well informed and works with the shooting teams to help sell pre event raffle tickets.
Dale's focus on family and passing that value on to the next generation is second to none. He is a wonderful father who takes his little girl to Cowboy Church every week. He is a hard working man that really understands the benefits of the Friends of NRA program. I am blessed he is part of the Western North Carolina Friends of NRA program and even more blessed to have him as a friend."
