Title: CalienteSeed! What it is, and how to get them!
Post by: Mrs. Smith on June 18, 2021, 11:53:42 PM
Good evening, everyone!

There's been a little interest in Ghostring's brainchild, the CalienteSeed patch. 

(https://i.imgur.com/CGHWdm3.jpg)

Here's (some of) the straight poop:

This is a morale patch. It's not tied to a score.

Requirements are as follows:

It must be earned at a two-day event. Standard or known distance doesn't matter.

Temps at least one of those two days must reach 100 degrees, on the thermometer or felt.  Humidity is a real thing, so the Heat Index absolutely applies.

The recipient must stick out BOTH of days of the event, and not just hanging around. They must participate.

Certain flexibility for Shoot Boss discretion, but this is the standard.

Patches are NOT official Appleseed patches!  Again, Ghostring's baby, ya'll.  Which means they're not being made on Appleseed's dime.

I'll let Jim tell you about the rest.  He was off work for a week for the Wyoming RBC, so he's probably catching up with work right now. Be patient.

Is this patch intended for shooters only or does it also apply to cadre?  Really fine patch!!

Ooooohhh! Very nice work; it might even be worth a road trip to the southwest region to pick up one of these puppies cross-pollinate with other instructors.  :cool2:

Hey, cadre toughs out the heat just as much as the students. Maybe more. Of course it applies!

I'd suggested a patch for Texas summers years ago. I'd wanted to call it the 'Texas Hell on Earth' patch. It would be red and have flames coming off of it. Even made a graphic for it.

I was shot down though. Probably wisely.

Scuzzy, I think the difference here is a) this patch is strictly a morale patch, not a Rifleman patch. It's not tied to shooting a score, only to toughing out two days in blistering heat. And b) Appleseed didn't pay for these. Jim and I did.

So back to the point:  Can a SB order these from you  if conditions are met or does one need to travel to the SW?  Once again, GREAT MORALE PATCH!!!

As far as I know Ghostring is happy to have ANYBODY participate. It's fun! And the patches are kinda cute  ;) 

The version we ordered has a two-part Velcro backing, and depending on order size, they ran about $1.50 each.

Thank you.  Do we need to come to the SW?

Not at all! Just get with Ghostring about ordering them  :)

Not going to lie, it was awesome to get one of these, but I'm also going to actively avoid getting another

 **)  only way to guarantee that around these parts is to not schedule shoots from May to September  :cool2:

I'll be at the Gainesville shoot next weekend, and there's a better than even chance we'll be able to earn this. That'd start my Appleseed career off in an interesting foot...

Florida is not immune to your SW temps. Yesterday at our Pitol Clinic the felt temp registered 104! Students still   :))

That, sir, is why we aren't trying to keep it to ourselves  :cool2: we're happy to share!  Of course, the patch was conceived in the Sw Region, so naturally the design has a SW flair, but other than that, anybody can do it. Heck, it was in the high 90s in South Dakota a week or two ago! It gets hot all over  :)

The way things are going we may get to have these in Alaska. It was perilously close to 90° at our one day KD in Talkeetna last year. I might lay some odds on hitting this benchmark at our Tok shoot next month.

Mrs. Smith, I'd like to arrange a way to reimburse you and Ghostring at least a small part of the cost that you two put into these.  What can be done about that? Paypal? Zelle?

Jason,  sir,  I paid for the 50 I kept.  The rest is between you and Ghostring  :cool2: good luck with that. You know how he is  #) :1luvu

Cool.

For those interested, I messaged Ghostring and he was willing to provide me with a Paypal address.  I don't know that he wants that shared here so I'm not going to post it, but if you are a shoot boss and you have been given a set to distribute at events - maybe message Jim & ask him how you can help, if you're so inclined.

I believe he also accepts payment in pirate jokes and hedgehogs.
