I'm going to mix things up and shoot rimfire one day and centerfire the other.

It WAS Hot! However, we had enough canopies that we had shade almost all the time!

A GREAT group of shooters too! They were fun, and safety conscious, which made our jobs a little easier. Thanks to all of our shooters for a fun safe weekend!

Wow what an event!  It was certainly hot.....but made tolerable by the acres of shade provided by pop-ups!  Thanks to everyone that pitched in to create our own little tent city!

Congrats to our new Riflemen:  Courtney, Stuart, Kevin and Scott!!!!

As well......to our Riflemen requals......Randy and Nadia......you proved you've still got the skills.

It was a pleasure to work with such a great group.  Lots of teachable attitudes and enthusiasm for the material.

Turtle......keep working at what we've taught you.  In a couple of years it will all come together.

Very excited for all the new Orange Hats!!!!  Nadia, thanks for stepping up.  Tally.....glad we could upgrade your hat color from blue to orange.

And Randy.....we finally presented you a hat even though you've been an IIT for a few months now.

Don't forget that dry practice.  I will post some photos shortly.

Thanks for sharing pictures Kimber Custom and Whit! Every AppleSeed I've been to has been lots of fun! Love the reason Project AppleSeed exists and getting to share with others is great! Thanks to JaneR letting me give her a story to tell, I came back a second time. But seeing Turtle at this event, really sealed the deal for me to accept that orange hat, our little guys and girls need a good solid program to teach them and that's exactly what I see with AppleSeed.

What started as a "hey lets use this 'AppleSeed thing' as an excuse to buy a Ruger 10/22 and try this once" has turned me into a little 10/22 shooting monster.. I mean machine...  ^:)^ :snipersmi

I'm excited for September's Event, I have one more event as a shooter left in me and then I'll shift my focus to IIT!
