What a great day to be a really old guy in the Revolutionary War Veterans Association (you really don't know how old I feel some times). Twenty-eight registered shooters showed, two last minute 'let's go shoot' walk-ons came by in their vehicle and those thirty shooter shined. First Redcoat target 3 400, 1 300, 4 200 and 15 100, 3 HS with Daniel Morgan. Then we started sharing the wealth of information overload, and they grabbed on for the ride. Stopped at lunch for the first Strike and the Second Strike and the Continental Volley in honor of the fallen was prepared, explained in significance and the Eastern to Western all at the same time in all the Appleseeds. Very moving.
Back to instruction, NPOA, you know the drill, hammer the lesson home and make them believers. More positions, more information, more challenges and the day was almost gone when we did two AQTs, and scoring found four Riflemen - Jerry 224 and 226 (he blames it on his practice and dryfire since his last Appleseed), Jason 216 (dragged smiling to this AS by one of my maturing IITs), Dean 215, Daniel 210 (who camped out on sight being so motivated - yes it is gently raining between clear sky patches) (he is going to try and dry out that river that runs through Wade's DAR). A good day, video taken by willing but busy Line Boss and friends.
Everyone was busy, everyone had a tiring but fulfilling day, some can't make day two this time but will somewhere down the road, everyone else was told to prepare for more and faster tomorrow. Final Redcoat of the day 8 400, 7 300, 5 200, 10 100, 8 HS the whiskey with water is on Daniel Morgan as soon as we find him. Normal tired would have a lot worse scores on the Redcoat, but this is a shooting group. Many of the people here came because of AS family encouragement, and lots of them are knocking on the door.
I have to clean up and get some sleep, videos are downloaded from my cameras to my computer, will process them some time next week. Tomorrow is another long tough day, and I will be smiling cause my cause is just!
