Title: Port Townsend, WA November 12-13
Post by: janer on November 16, 2016, 02:19:41 PM
We had it all this weekend at Jefferson County Sportsmen's Association in Port Townsend, WA.  Overcast, rain and wind, but this enthusiastic group of shooters stayed with it.  We had 13 on Saturday, they went home quite soaked, but 10 returned to do it again on Sunday

They took in history, and the marksmanship instruction, resulting in 5 new riflemen and several others knocking at the door.

Congratulations to Riflemen Beau, Aaron, Robert, India, and Alex. Huzzah! Huzzah! Huzzah!

I really enjoyed working with everyone in this group.  I hope to see each of you again at a future Appleseed.  Maybe in the summer?

As always it is a pleasure to hold events at JCSA.  We appreciate your great support of Project Appleseed.

This was a great group of shooters to work with. Robert and Alex turned in solid scores on their Saturday AQT, in spite of waning light and literally lying in a puddle of water outside the temporary shelter! I was impressed overall with shooter attitudes and persistence; this was the strongest group of shooters I've seen at JCSA, and I'd like to see some of them back as instructors. Most of those who didn't shoot Rifleman scores will be there with some dry practice, I think.

This was a really good Appleseed.  Seeing repeat shooters and everyone having a good time, safely learning all we had to teach, sharing their energy and skills. Glad I was able to do something to help everyone get better and look forward to doing it all again. 

Lovely people, on target and on time. See you all on the range.
