Building the place to add all that happens in Lewiston, Idaho the Appleseed weekend of 3-4 April 2010.
Change batteries in camera, pack laptop computer after posting this, pack gear into Caravan.
3 April -- After a sound sleep at Reformed Redneck and TruTenacity's home we went to the range and set up and met the shooters and range host support. Registration went well, introduction to the Appleseed crew, Safety Rules, six steps for clearing the rifles, line commands, misfires and what we would be trying to accomplish in marksmanship and honoring our traditions. With dedication and perseverance the Instructor crew and the shooters braved a bit of mud, hail, snowflakes, sleet, rain and gusts of wind mixed with peeks of sunshine fine Idaho Spring weather. Morning redcoat 1 400, 3 300, 4 200, and 4 100, 5 headshots.
Presentation of instruction and demonstrations went well, the shooters started grouping early and went right into MIC, sight adjustments and drills. Lots of good shooting by the shooters, First and Second strikes around lunch, more drills and two AQTs and a redcoat in the afternoon. The afternoon redcoat was 2 400, 5 300, 3 200, 2 100 and 4 headshots. Packed everyone and their rifles off safely and closed the range down and left about 5:30, just before the six o'clock lockup. There are four new Riflemen:John "Dave" Turner 215, Mike Munch 223 & 231, Ethan Gilliam 215, Heather Cernik 216 and two accepting the orange IIT cap: Mike Munch and Heather Cernik. There are pictures in the camera, and even some video - one of young Ty shooting a righthanded bolt action and being left handed, so was his father. http://wmearl-justthelibrarykeeper.blogspot.com/2010/04/you-know-that-good-tired-really-good.html
