This was a fine Appleseed. Beautiful weather, great shooters, fine crew and over coming all the challenges of being far from home. Will add more after a solid night's sleep.

Waitsburg Gun Club Main http://www.waitsburggunclub.com/ (http://www.waitsburggunclub.com/)

Okay, one cup of coffee and some unloading of the Caravan.
The Appleseed was just like it should always be, interested shooters, rifles, ammunition and targets, a fine RWVA crew and the cooperation of the weather, timed perfectly.

One should never have an Appleseed without travel challenges and adventures, exploration of new areas and fondness for the fauna.

I didn't get many pictures, hopefully all the other folks taking them will post their best.

Lots of family sharing the marksmanship and our heritage, please spread the word about what really happened on April 19th, 1775.

Need the second cup of coffee, so you can have some pictures.

Well, alternator catching on fire and all - I had a great time this weekend. The improvement I saw in group size from Sat AM to Sun AM was impressive. Adding another youth Rifleman to the ranks just reinforces why we do what we do.

Thank you all for coming out and bringing your great attitudes :)

Was this the best turnout yet for Waitsburg? Looks like a great group of shooters and instructors, with a few turkeys wandering around. I'm sure the deer on the hillside have the safety rules memorized by now!

Well according to our COI you were supposed to join us. Final Redcoat on Saturday listed Kenjo as instructor. But don't worry - we covered for you :)

Yes, I believe this is a high for Waitsburg.

Based on the way the wildlife was flaunting itself at us we decided they must have read the rules about no shooting the wildlife. It was the 6 steps that the turkeys were starting to echo by the end of the weekend. We hit them hard.

Well, I was there in spirit, anyway, but had other commitments. I take it my designated replacement (the whitetail buck that attended last year) didn't show up either?

Well had truck problems on the way out there but it was good once we got started. Started out slow but as the weather improved and the sun came out it got much better. The shooters were very much eager to learn and by Sunday morning the improvement of groups was night and day ..:.. Day 2 I worked with Dale on the far left he did a great job he came out with a top score of 120 with iron sights  ^:)^ Madison got her Rifleman patch congrats to her as well.

I was so happy about the instructors getting to shoot after everyone left on Saturday that was great.
Kimber also brought out the musket and let anyone who wanted to shoot it could that was cool

Thank you everyone who came this weekend we had a great turn out for Waitsburg the President Fred was very pleased with us

Very nice weekend.  Great group of shooters, ready to learn.  Shooters, if you find the "Do your homework page" in the handouts, it really does help.

This is my video of Kimber Custom firing his Brown Bess, which he kindly shared with many shooters on Sunday.
