The weekend was beautiful and everyone present were attentive, the results showed in the morning/afternoon redcoat targets.
Brianna: You did amazingly well with no sling and one magazine, I am impressed. Keep practicing!
Paul: I applaud your willingness to push through even though equipment/scope/glasses issues caused a lot of frustration. Thank you very much for letting me use your bore sight to get my new scope on paper for fine tuning. Keep practicing!
Nathan: Your groups throughout the day showed improvement time and time again, keep practicing the fundamentals (steady hold factors, NPOA, etc). As you witnessed during the sighting in we did at the end of Sunday, IMC does not lie and gets you on the proper target much faster.
Gabe: You stuck through the day even though it got pretty warm (for WA standards) on Sunday, I apologize for ending the prep period on stage 2 as I did not notice you were not ready. Your groups were impressive looking on the squares and I can tell you were trying very hard. Remember, a rifleman persists and I am sure that you will continue to improve. Hope to see you and your father at the next event!
Mike W: We hope that the weekend has been enjoyable for you and your family, we hope that all will come back to our next event in the surrounding area.
Renato: I can tell throughout the weekend that your groups are improving and your dedication is starting to pay off. Keep practicing the fundamentals and I hope that you will come back to our next event in the area.
Troy: Congratulations on earning your patch! Remember there is always the KD event to pursue as well, keep practicing the fundamentals as rifle marksmanship is a perishable skill if not kept up with practice. We would be honored if you would consider taking on an orange hat or blue hat to join us and teach others what you have learned. Remember, "What we obtain too cheap, we esteem too lightly; it is dearness only that gives everything its value.” Your persistence finally paid off in two impressive qualification scores.
Brad: Your groups showed improvements throughout the day. Keep practicing the fundamentals!
Roy: Remember to keep practicing the fundamentals, I know the weekend has been somewhat frustrating with equipment issues but I hope it has been instructive as well for everyone. Steady Hold Factors and NPOA can be practiced anywhere you have room to spread out in the prone position. A rifleman persists!

(full disclosure, this is not my ebay listing, however it is designed by an instructor that is no longer active within Project Appleseed.)
Elie: I know the weekend has been frustrating fighting with the sights, having you dialed in on Sunday shows that you have what it takes to make the shot (4 out of 5 in the black in that last sighter group). Keep practicing the fundamentals and I hope to see you on the line again!
Mike: I know the weekend has been frustrating for you as well trying to keep from being hit with spent brass, please consider wearing long sleeve shirts next time to protect your arms. Keep practicing the fundamentals and persist!
Jeri: Thank you for your patience and attention throughout the weekend, your groups showed improvement as the days continued.
Elliott: Congratulations on earning your patch as well. Remember to keep practicing the fundamentals as rifle marksmanship is a perishable skill if not kept up with practice. We would be honored if you would consider taking on an orange hat or blue hat to join us and teach others what you have learned. Your persistence finally paid off in two impressive qualification scores. Well Done!
All attendees: It has been a pleasure working with you this weekend, thank you for your attention and your patience. I hope that the message of Liberty and the sacrifices made by those before us will not be forgotten. Please help us spread the word of Liberty and bring friends to the next event!
