Santiago “Pays It Forward” in the Pits at Western CMP Games

Dennis Santiago CMP Games Western Ben Avery Volunteer

Sometimes a dedicated shooter just has to help out. That was the case for our friend Dennis Santiago, who drove from Southern California all the way to Phoenix, Arizona this past weekend to help with the CMP Games being held at the Ben Avery Shooting Facility.

Here’s a Facebook post from Dennis Santiago, reporting from Ben Avery:

Western Games Pit Monkey 2016
Competitive high-powered rifle shooting is very much a team sport. Though shot individually, it is the product of many things and many people working together. Sometimes circumstances are such that it means it’s your turn to help. That was the case this weekend. It was so good to see everyone. — Dennis

Pay It Forward
Definition of phrase: 1. Respond to a person’s kindness to oneself by being kind to someone else. E.g.: “I will take the support I have had and try to pay it forward whenever I can.”

We commend Dennis for his willingness to help staff this important shooting event. Likewise we commend all those persons who volunteer to help at shooting matches around the country. Without their commitment and dedication, the shooting sports could not thrive.
