Some of you who have never made the journey may have wondered what your first Flatwater experience would be like. This year I was able to film the secret initiation ceremony and the major task required of the newbies. This is George "Tripod" Schwantz, a vintage Flatwater veteran, demonstrating the requirements with perfect form before the new fellows get their turn. No whusses now.......we've all been there and done that and are none the worse for the wear. You new guys can bring your own stick.

After he did the shot with a toplever gun and got a forehead recoil indentation, he would only repeat the shot for the cameras with a topleverless gun. I handed him my Manufrance and he did the shot with Fourtrax and Bruce Day filming. Someone then offered a hammergun, but he declined. Hoping one of them will post it.

Not sure anyone at Flatwater has ever been skinny enough to emulate that individual for the initiation anyway. Amazing what these foreign folks will do for fun. I'm still wincing at the thought...
