We were at church Monday night, when Brother Fred asked if I'd be willing to demonstrate Cowboy Fast Draw to a bunch of visiting children from Korea.
"Korea?" I asked?
"Yeah,", he said. "One of the local churches hosts a group of Korean children every year as part of its ministry. They want to show the kids America, and as part of their introduction, they bring the kids here on Thursday night, during our rodeo practice. We let the kids get on a horse, lead them around the arena, and feed them barbecue. We thought that it would be cool to put on a demonstration of Fast Draw."
"Well, yeah" I replied. "I'd be happy to do that. " I pondered for a minute. "We're not going to let then shoot, are we?"
"No" Fred replied. "It would take too long to do that safely. Just a demonstration."
"Do they speak English?" I asked.
"Not a word," Fred replied. "They have interpreters who help with the language barrier, But I can assure you that every one of them has a smart phone, and they'll be snapping pictures like crazy."
So, PawPaw will meet the brethren at the church today about 3:00 to set up a range, help make pulled pork sandwiches and do whatever is necessary to prepare for a group of about 50 Korean kids who want to learn about America. We'll demonstrate Cowboy Fast Draw, let then ride a horse, and generally try to make their stay in the US exciting and memorable.
It sounds like lot of fun.
