AAR - AGC - May 8-9, 2021

Amazing class at AGC in Marriottsville, MD this past weekend.

Sat saw 15 shooters on the line (with 2 bowing out for other commitments at lunch time). While it was more rainy and cold than expected, great progress was made and the day ended with an AQT, on which, 3 shooters earned Rifleman.

Sunday saw 14 shooters return to the line for the "rifleman's grind" with AQTs between each mandatory cease fire. By days end, another 6 shooters earned Rifleman, for a total of 9 out of 15 earning Rifleman (60% success rate). And 6 of those 9 were new Rifleman - Huzzah!

Highlights include 16 year old brand new shooter Madeline D earning Rifleman AND cleaning the Red Coat on her last targets, youth phenom 11 year old Eva, scoring scores in 222 thru 231 repeatedly, Jim scoring Distinguished with irons and cleaning the Red Coat to earn his Distinguished Front Site Patch, just to name a few.

It was great to see so many new shooters breakthrough at the event to earn their Rifleman and Front Sight patches (8 cleaned Red Coats during the weekend), as well as to see experienced folks requalify. We had one shooter that started off-paper and made Rifleman at the end. And folks who didn't qualify still made significant progress and were typically in the 180s and within a better Stage 4 of qualifying. We hope everyone comes to a future event!

Thank you to all the students, volunteers (including Mark visiting from Kentucky!), and host club AGC for another amazing event.

Pictures are available on the Maryland Appleseed Facebook Page.

Our next event at AGC is in September but plenty of events before then at our other ranges. Hope to see you on the line.
