That is very sad Gryphon. I understand the exclusivity of clubs to some degree - they are communities and a huge influx of new members can be disruptive to culture. But I do not understand exclusivity to the degree that locks a club into a death spiral in terms of age and enthusiasm. Appleseed was a great way to be reintroduced to AAFG, where I learned to shoot as a kid thanks to a very generous Scout leader. I otherwise would have had no exposure to the second amendment and firearms, two significant passions today. I hope we don't lose sight of our long term obligations to the founding fathers.

I will be posting the After-Action Report (AAR) here and in the Appleseed RWVA Forum shortly.

Thanks for coming out!
That Winterseed patch will forever haunt me...till next time at least.

Appleseeds everywhere!

Gryphon - That is sad.
Not sure where you are, but check out the Appleseeds all over Maryland, and neighboring states.

Please feel free to PM me if I can be of assistance.

Annapolis One-Day Appleseed event 13JAN18

Three experienced Appleseeders (Ray, Ash, and Andrew), and two first-timers (Jim and Shawn) braved the (very) cold and windy day at the Anne Arundel Fish and Game (AAFG) Conservation Association in Annapolis, MD, for a 1-Day Project Appleseed Rifle Marksmanship Clinic.

After the introductions, four key questions, and safety brief, we went right into the first Redcoat target, and we were excited to see everyone pretty close! As went into the history of April 19th, 1775 during our telling of the "First Strike" of the match, it started snowing! The Winterseed patch now being an option, students were eager to get to shooting... it was onto prone Steady-Hold Factors (SHF) and putting sighters on the Squares target... and WOW, after a few sighters we were there... this being a One-day event, it was time to move right into Standing and Seated/Kneeling SHF on the Grenadiers (Green Targets), as this group was ready for it!
After some more history at lunch (Second Strike), "I have not a man that is afraid to go!" - (Students were really engaged with the history) we got back to marksmanship training . We noticed mag changes were a little challenged, so we ran some mag-change drills during Stage 2 & 3 practice. Huge improvement! As instruction wrapped up, we moved into our first practice Appleseed Qualification Test (AQT).
First-timer Jim came very close with a 200, and the rest of the shooters had parts of their targets that were very good, but needed to get all 4 stages together. After another regular AQT - same results, close, but no cigar. After the telling of the Third Strike and wrapping up the history, we then did our last Redcoat of the day, framed the weekend, and cleaned up.
Unfortunately, no new Riflemen, but I'm sure they will be back, because:
A Rifleman Persists!
Thank you very much to our host range, the Anne Arundel Fish and Game (AAFG) Conservation Association. Check out their website http://www.aafg.org

And last but not least, many thanks to my fellow instructors Etervigila and Aninha. Our Instructor's hard work, and professional demeanor made this a safe and fun shoot.

For more information on future events, you can go back to the top of this thread (Pg 1) or visit the Project Appleseed website.

Just signed up the nephew and myself for Sanners on Founders Weekend. It will be nice to be outside this time, hopefully in good weather! Kudos to the cold weather 'seeders, but that's one patch I won't be getting.

Trailtoy,
Glad to hear it!

For folks new to Project Appleseed -
Not only do we teach Rifle marksmanship; we teach what happened on April 19th, 1775.
Don't know what happened on that day? Come to a Project Appleseed Rifle Marksmanship clinic!

Special things and extra swag are given out on the events closest to April 19th...
"Patriot's Day"

There's one in Annapolis the weekend before - Annapolis April 14-15, 2018

There's one in Lexington Park the weekend after - SLSC Lexington Park 21-22 April, 2018

And for those of you up near the WV border, keep an eye on their events, maybe one there.

See you on the line!
