The 2001 Brian T. Bilby memorial pistol match is now, as they say, in the record books. The match was held Saturday June 9th at the beautiful facilities of Centerline Gun Club in Calhoun County, Michigan. Match organizer Greg Kennedy arranged for 10 practical and challenging stages. Some of the stages were ones that Brian Bilby had formulated and others came from the Greg Kennedy and a number of other of Brian's friends.

Even the weather cooperated in making this event a day of great fun with great people and a fitting tribute to our departed friend Brian. A number of guns Brian had built were on display and even more were in use by match participants. These beautifully-crafted firearms underscored the impact of the loss of Brian on the practical shooting community. Those of us who knew Brian, personally or via the telephone, e-mail, and internet forums, know that we lost even more. A special thanks to Greg Kennedy for all of his hard work in setting up this event so that we might pay our respects to Brian in such a fitting way.

Note: Rosco drove all the way from Dayton, Ohio to attend. All of Brian's old Michigan buddies were there, too. The match ran like a Swiss watch and everyone had a blast. We all hope that this match happens again next year. Thanks, Greg! The weather was fabulous. It's a shame that Brian bugged out so soon.

Hi Roscoe, very well said. It was great meeting you at this honored event and sharing a warm conversation. A wonderful time was had by all. I truly missed hanging around with everyone after the shooting. Hope to see you next year. Take care.
