Maryland Project Appleseed 2021 Thread

Alright, we are past a 2020 that was very challenging for the program, with 11 cancelled events. But we have scheduled a PACKED 2021 with not only the most events planned in our state's history, but with more types of clinics designed for all types of shooters!

Rifle Marksmanship Clinics
A lot of you are probably interested in our standard one and two day Rifle Marksmanship clinics - we have 26 of those scheduled right now, although we still have a couple more ranges to add to the list once we are confirmed. Now, 3 of those are already sold out or nearly so, so while it may seem like a lot, jump on them early. Our Rifle Marksmanship clinics are fun, and your shooting will improve whatever your starting skill level! You will also learn the history of April 19, 1775 and the shot heard round the world.

What is the difference between a One Day and Two Day Event?
We understand that some folks cannot dedicate an entire weekend to one activity due to family, personal, and work commitments. And seasonally, it is less pleasant to sweat or freeze for two days in a row. We therefore have different versions of the courses to accommodate shooters of all kinds. The One Day events includes the entire basic course of instruction, history, and, typically, one or two chances to qualify as Rifleman in a single day. It can be a pretty intense event - you will certainly "drink from a firehose" of instruction. The Two Day events expand the course of instruction to include a few more lessons, drills, Red Coat targets, and, of course, more chances to qualify as Rifleman.

Rimfire Known Distance Clinics (200 yards)
We also have 3 one day Rimfire Known Distance clinics on the calendar. These events move beyond scaled targets at 25 meters and push shooters and equipment as they engage targets between 50 and 200 yards from all the positions Appleseed teaches. You have to have attended a prior Appleseed event but do not have to be a Rifleman. If you haven't earned your new Rocker, introduced last year, I hope you sign up!

"Introduction to Project Appleseed" Half-day Clinics
But wait, there's more! This year we are adding "Introduction to Project Appleseed" half-day clinics. We know not everyone has a full day or weekend to dedicate to rifle marksmanship. The half day will cover nearly all of the instruction we provide in a full clinic but focused on the prone position. While you cannot earn a Rifleman patch at a half day, it would be a great opportunity to see if Appleseed is for you, a friend, or a family member! These will be on Fridays or Saturdays, depending on the range.

Ladyseed Clinics
But that's not all! We are working to schedule one or more Ladyseed events after a several years hiatus. For many women, a rifle range is an unfamiliar and potentially intimidating territory. A Ladyseed is an Appleseed designed specifically for women. It offers the opportunity for women to shoot, share and get to know each other in a comfortable learning environment. We may convert some of our existing one and two day events or schedule entirely new ones.

Private Clinics
And if that was not enough, we are already working with several groups on private events, such as MilSeeds for military units looking for training or youth groups. If you have a group that would be interested in a private event, feel free to contact me.

Patriot Pistol Clinics
Last but certainly not least, we are also working to add one or two new Patriot Pistol events to the schedule. Patriot Pistol focuses on pistol handling and marksmanship skills - it is a challenging course of fire for even experienced pistol shooters but will certainly bring a new shooter along very quickly as well. And you will be as proud of your Pistoleer patch as you are of Rifleman.

With so many moving pieces, please subscribe to this thread to get updates!

Sign-up MUST be done online. All attendees MUST register online. For full fee schedule, including potential range fees, go to the registration for each event.

Events in Maryland

Finally, as mentioned above, we hope to still add more ranges and events to the calendar. We are working with a range in southern PA that will be very convenient to a lot of folks north of Baltimore who have had to travel a long way. If you know of a range that might be interested in hosting, let me know. We also help out with events in West Virginia and Virginia and highly encourage you to attend in those states if more convenient for you. They each have great crews of folks and also get "border raider" instructors from the Maryland cadre:

Events for West Virginia

Events in Pennsylvania

Events in Virginia

These classes usually sell out quickly and we have a few groups that may buy-out entire events; sign up NOW to assure your spot on the line!

Happy to answer any questions you may have in this thread or by PM. And looking forward to posting more as the year begins.
