Title: Indianapolis, IN May 19, 2012
Post by: AuntieBellum on May 20, 2012, 11:24:03 AM
What a great day to Appleseed!  13 people aged 11 to, well, a teensy bit older  ;), came out to learn all about our American heritage.  The day was toasty, but we didn't hear any complaints.  The history breaks were welcome, and not just for the shade - it was obvious that these Patriots came to learn.  Their marksmanship improved all day long, too.  Karen - always a pleasure to see you.  Get that scope screwed on nice and snug, and I know you'll get that coveted score in Freedom.  And Brett - a pleasure to see you again, as well - congratulations, new Rifleman!  I look forward to seeing you in an orange hat soon...  ^-^

I enjoyed working with each and every one of you and can't wait to see you all again!  Miles, Sam, Jamie, and Steven - great job, young Patriots.  I only have a couple of groups shots, but I'm sure others have pictures to share, too.

Had a wonderful time with everyone this past Saturday, and a big thank you to the dads for bringing the kids out to the range to enjoy a nice day.  All our new shooters made great progress throughout the day, and congratulations to Brett for shooting Rifleman.  There's not a doubt in my mind many of the other shooters on the line will make that Rifleman score soon with some more practice.  Come on back and join us again soon.

Thank you to the volunteers for your time and effort!  The knowledge and ability you have been blessed with will assist in training young patriots for years to come.  I have to say I've probably told everyone I know I achieved Rifleman  ^:)^ :---
