Minnesota Shoot Bosses
« Reply #1 on: June 28, 2010, 06:56:53 PM »
1. The forum title/level of "Shoot Boss" is given new meaning:  Only someone with the forum title/level of "Shoot Boss" is able to sign up with Instructor Scheduling to serve as a Shoot Boss.

     1A. Any instructors who are Red Hats prior to May 1, 2010 and have served as a Shoot Boss up to standards many times in the past may be given a waiver by a MI or SI who will vouch for their abilities and grant them the Shoot Boss title.  Those requesting the waiver must send a PM directly to Fred before midnight June 27, 2010.  Fred will forward your request and confir with your Regional MI/SI.  All other Red Hats will advance to SB under the SBIT guidelines specified below.

2. A Red Hat may achieve the Shoot Boss level by participating in a Shoot Boss In Training (SBIT) program consisting of:

      a. The SBIT will be invited to shadow a Master Instructor (MI), Senior Instructor (SI), or experienced Shoot Boss (SB) designated by a MI or SI at a minimum of two Appleseed events.  Depending on the practices of the MI, SI, or SB, the SBIT will perform the duties of a Shoot Boss.

      b. The SBIT will also participate in an Admin Meeting with an MI, SI, or experienced SB designated by a MI or SI to review forms, policies, guidelines, and the Shoot Boss Manual. This Admin Meeting can and will likely take place at an Appleseed, either an evening prior to, or following.

      c. The SBIT will then run an Appleseed event from beginning to end under the helpful/watchful eye of a MI, SI, or experienced SB designated by a MI or SI. This will generally be "hands off" by the helpful/watchful MI/SI/SB, except as further minor mentoring to "polish" the new SB may be required.

      d. The SBIT may then be recommended, or not, for the forum title of Shoot Boss. If an SBIT needs extra 'time in grade' as an SBIT, he'll be allowed extra time. In the unlikely event the SBIT candidate "cannot handle" the SB job, he's welcome to continue in the program without any 'fallout' as a Red Hat.

3. A Red Hat who does not have the forum title of Shoot Boss may still act as a Shoot Boss where no SB is available, and where a shoot would otherwise be canceled.  Approval would be required by a MI, SI, or experienced SB designated by a MI or SI.  The RH may then complete the SBIT program outlined above to earn his Shoot Boss rank. [This procedure will be reserved to small AS with an expected turnout of under 20 students.]


4. Because Shoot Boss skills are perishable, it is recommended that all Shoot Bosses strive to:
      a. Serve as SB at five events in a calendar year.
      b. Serve as an Instructor or SB at a minimum of three other events, one of which must be an IBC or RBC.
      c. As per current Instructor Guidelines, an Instructor must not remain inactive for more than eight months.

In true Appleseed tradition, the following has been stolen from PHenery

While the preceding has caused much consternation in certain areas, for primarily non-practical reasons, it will heave little to no effect in Wisconsin, as we have been doing it this way from the very beginning. The sole purpose for the new guidelines was / is to simply put into black and white what will be required to maintain the quality of events as the program goes forward. What worked four years ago - will not work a year from now. What was done for instructors with regards to the PC system has now been done for SBs. Now, back to Appleseeding.
Coly


Below are the SB's who can shadow and make SB's

VMT193
AFTERMATH
Cooper
BuzzG
Any of the above can mentor a new SB, have the SBIT shadow him and then shadow the SBIT and then declare fitness to serve as SB, sans any assistance. New venues should always be run under one the above, until others are added to the list. All this means is that the SBs on the list are experienced enough to know what an Appleseeds events requires and what it takes to get it done.

A list of SBIT shadow requirements is in the works and the new SB Library will be up soon as well. For now, please direct any questions to Colycat.

The following are qualified to SB; but may not make SB's:

Whisker-Well, he's kinda in MN....SD....&...IA + VT ???

“These are the times that try men's souls. The summer soldier and the sunshine patriot will, in this crisis, shrink from the service of their country; but he that stands it now, deserves the love and thanks of man and woman. Tyranny, like hell, is not easily conquered; yet we have this consolation with us, that the harder the conflict, the more glorious the triumph. What we obtain too cheap, we esteem too lightly: it is dearness only that gives everything its value.”   T Paine

Formerly the Instructor listing....
Needed some clean up, and well we know it takes more than instructors to run this program.

Hey all, I 'hope' I'm behind on the promotion status'.  Take a look, make sure you're in the right category.  If not, send me a PM!

Congratulations Kevin, and Habs!

Heads up...NW WI is negotiating with Hibbing, MN for their surrender to the Cheddar Force.

Look for an AS there in 2013.  ;D ;)

Honoring the memory of Adonijah Taylor (1730-1810) my Grandfather seven generations back, Deerfield MA Militiaman and Patriot, who answered the alarm on April 19, 1775 and along with his six sons served in the War of the Revolution.

With Alice and Leland moving to Colorado, you have carte blanche to  raid Minnesota north of Brainerd to the borders with North Dakota and Canada.    I'll be generous and throw in all of Canada as well.

For our part, we will pursue our raids into the southwest quadrant of the Cheeseland Republic.

Winterminute76 made multiple attempts up in Hibbing.  Perhaps, if he's still checking the forums you can enlist his aide. O0
