Title: ATTENTION NEW ORANGE HATS/IITs
Post by: Guy on April 21, 2009, 02:25:00 PM
   New IITs,

   First, thank you for signing up.  We hope you will continue your growth with us in the near future.  Together, all our little bits can combine into one BIG bit.

   There is such a flurry of activity at an Appleseed, that paperwork for a new Volunteer can fall through the cracks.  Help us help you for a moment, if you please.  If you do not see "Instructor In Training" under your screen name within the next week, please post here on this thread, so that we can fix the oversight.

   Also, send a Private Message to dond (https://appleseedinfo.org/smf/index.php?action=pm;sa=send;u=361) and make sure to include the Shoot Boss, in the TO: block, for the event where you volunteered at.

   We need to know who you are, so we can help you help us.

   Thanks again for joining the Appleseed Team.

   Someday that Instructor inspiring the next generation will be you.

   Guy

Done.

Listed you as a generic IIT.

As you continue, Progress Checks will be made, and you will advance.  That is not my department(ish) so if you have done some, you need to pm the Instructor who gave them to you and figure out where your rank is actually at.

Good luck, and maybe meet you someday.

By The Way.....

Some of the shoots may have had less than a full complement of Orange Hats.  It has come to my attention that a few full Instructors may not have their Red Hats yet.

If you signed up as an IIT and do not have the orange hat (or are a hat less Red Hat), you need to contact the ShootBoss of the next event you will attend to requisition the appropriate hat for you in the box of supplies for the shoot in question.

If all else fails, in three weeks or so I will be home, and may be able to take care of you.  BUT ONLY AFTER YOU HAVE TRIED YOUR SHOOT BOSS OF THE NEXT EVENT YOU WILL WORK.

You can sign up for events after looking at the Instructor Schedule here, which is only visible to Instructors and IITs.

http://appleseedinfo.org/smf/index.php?topic=2601.0

Follow the instructions on the very first post.  You can also find the name of your ShootBoss here as well.

If all else fails, contact me (via PM) and I will see what I can do for you.

Guy

also, I have no idea what a full complement of hats is.  More than likely, so many Americans stepped up at your shoot we ran out.

Doesn't that sound like a good problem to have?

Doesn't that make you Proud to be one of those good folks?

He said he attended the march IBC, so, an evaluation from the Shoot Boss this weekend as to what level to assess is in order.

New IIT's, if you aren't seeing "Instructor In Training" under your user name, PM me, and let me know which event, and your AQT score, so we get you picked up properly.

So you know, the "Newbie" under that listing is generated by forum posts, which, on this forum, mean absolutely nothing.

Good Day-

Just got approved to be on the Forum here (must have passed the backgroung check !) and attended the Santa Barbara, CA Appleseed on the 18th/19th.  Earned a RM Patch by Sunday afternoon, and accepted an Orange hat at the end of the day. . . .  a very fulfilling weekend to say the least ! Third try is a charm, but I could claim 'handicap' since I loaned my good rifles to the friends I had come along with me ;-)  It was worth it though, 'cause now 3 of 'em are hooked, buying their own rifles, and getting the picture about what being a Rifleman really means !

My question now is "what's next ? " I don't see any IBC's listed nearby (Piru ? ) and was told by F-Stop that there are materials somewhere to download and read - can't find them yet.  Directions / help please ?

Thanks again,

I second what Kid said. The Ramseur RBC was great. To Ron, Bill thanks for giving us your time and sharing your knowledge. I have learned a lot and plan to lean more to share with other Americans. To the other orange hats, I am glad I had a chance to share the experience and hope our trails will cross again.

I don't think i'm an IIT yet on the forum.  I received the Rifleman Patch and the Orange hat from SamD at the Albuquerque Appleseed a couple weeks ago and then helped out as an IIT at the NRA Whittington Center Appleseed (Raton, NM) this past weekend after my FCSA 50 BMG shoot was over.

Bluefeather was the shoot boss in Albuquerque and Raton.

So please, ad me to the IIT group, if possible.

     Nickle but I am unable to find the place I need to be. I would appreciate any assistant you could be
     to me. I have two Rifleman patches and have attended four Appleseeds. The latest Appleseed I

Necede,

Send a personal Message to Nickle.  I do know he is a bit busy right now, but he can get you pointed in the right direction.

Welcome, and thanks for stepping up!

Guy

Make sure to include the Shoot Boss in the TO: block when you send that PM. He SHOULD have notified me that you're an IIT.

Also, make sure to tell which Appleseeds you've attended, and what your highest AQT score is.

That will help speed the process up considerably.

Hello again,
My name is Jake, my family members who qualified are Hannah, Johnson, and Jack, and me.  The instructors were Alex and Ben.  The event occurred in Grand Island.  The following week we went to Broken Bow, but had to leave early because of a family emergency. We want to continue our training. If we get no response, we'll be forced to go to another apple seed.  We intend to bring several friends.

Jake,
You need to contact the shoot boss at your event. You are not listed as an instructor yet, so you can not see the instructor part of the forum. Once you have the IIT status vs. the newbie, you will be able to access that part of the forum and look to see what AS you can sign up for.

Sent you a PM as well.

Does anyone else find it disturbing that there are people who posted in this thread well over a year ago who are still showing as IIT or IIT1?

People... you volunteered to be an Instructor in TRAINING, and if you're still an IIT0 or IIT1 after over a year, you ain't taking much training, now are you? Guys... the water is getting deep and we need more hands bailing. Grab a bucket and go over to the Instructor Scheduling thread and sign up!

got my orange hat at IBC tampa fl. on 8/8/2010. i have attended 4 or 5 appleseeds since 2007,  but never thought i'd have enough time to really devote to this program. with our current situation and the shortage of instructors i felt it was my duty to do my part . Appleseed is the most promising cure for what AILS OUR BELOVED COUNTRY.being part of the solution feels good ,really good!!!
     George Washington would have been an instructor, so would Stonewall Jackson, and how would you like to have been to Alvin Yorks' RBC?Those are men to emulate.i wish we had them now

I fired a 228 at Columbia, Maine under SeanO back in April and put on my Orange Hat. On August 7 & 8 I attended the IBC under Crak in Massachusetts and this weekend I fired a 224 under Buzzworth at Bennington during a break from duties on the line as LSO.

Wife is a volunteer shoot admin and quite pleased with her pink RWVA hat. We spent our 46th anniversary at the IBC.

My signature box still says "newbie".

I earned the Rifleman patch at my first Appleseed(Bedford,IN) and became hooked. During my second 'seed', I proved to myself that I had alot to learn and that I was up for the challenge.
Being asked to pick up the orange hat means combining the three things that I love to do: history, shooting, and teaching.
I can't wait to see everyone along the trail.

I scored rifleman at my first Appleseed in Athens, OH and then was dithering during the following months (and 2 more Appleseeds) whether I was up to taking the plunge to be an instructor.  Finally made the decision and took my hat this past weekend at the Cloverdale, IN shoot from DaveD.

I'm a little nervous about finding time for it all, but I can't wait to learn and teach.

I also coach 4H shooters, usually working with the shotgun shooters. Last week I worked with the rifle shooters and was able to apply some of the Appleseed techniques to improve their prone shooting.

   New IITs.

   First, thank you for signing up.  We hope you will continue your growth with us in the near future.  Together, all our little bits can combine into one BIG bit.

   There is such a flury of activity at the Appleseeds, that even new IITs can fall through the cracks.  Help us help you for a moment, if you please.

   If you do not see "Instructor In Training" under your screen name within the next week, please post here, on this thread, so that someone with administrative powers can fix the oversight.

Send a PM to dond, and make sure to include the Shoot Boss, in the TO: block, for the event where you volunteered at. Saves time, as I do check. Nickle

   We need to know who you are, so we can help you help us.

   Thanks again for joining the Appleseed Team.

   Someday that Instructor inspiring the next generation will be you.

Rljake,

I'll help you out.  So you are an orange hat that missed the roll call?  Send me an e-mail (NWPromo@appleseedinfo.org) with the following info:

Real name
Forum name
E-mail
Phone #
State you live in (so I know which SC to follow up with)
When/where you shot rifleman
Other Appleseeds you attended (when/where)

Briefly write a letter asking to become active as an instructor in training and that you on board with the mission of Project Appleseed.

I will forward your e-mail to the appropriate State Coordinator.

That's most likely because you don't have Instructor in Training status in the forums.  Next to your avatar I see you as "Newbie" but I don't see "Instructor in Training" so your access is limited.  This status may have changed because of the roll call done at the first of the year.  It required all instructors and IITs to affirm that they were going to continue to volunteer with the program.  If you missed the notice, then your account lost its IIT access/privileges.

So... since you can't PM, I would suggest that you e-mail your information to NWPromo and I'll forward it to your State Coordinator so things can get straightened out.  If you agree with the mission of Project Appleseed and want to serve as an IIT, then your SC can work with you to get that straightened out.

Hello everyone,
I attended my 2nd Appleseed this weekend in Promfret CT, and earned my "Rifleman" patch and was asked if I would like to be an instructor, I gladly took on the responsibility and said yes!
My first shoot was in Harvard, Ma on June 21/22, 2012. Missed it with a score of 206  :wb:
Came home and for the next couple of weeks practice everything I learned and it paid off!  O0
Looking forward to helping as much as I can and hope to help get the Rhode Island Appleseed Project moving around these parts.

Another FNG here!  This is my second seed and my wife's third.  Yesterday, at the end of the day, I patched with a 213.  This morning I had a couple of malfunctions due to a defective shell that was pressed off center of the brass.  I think a piece of led got shaved off and was stuck in the chamber resulting in a bunch of misfeeds.  There just isn't enough time to clear the gun and save the sheet.  We snaked the gun over lunch and then I shot 221 and then 233.  ;D At that point I stopped shooting and focused on trying to get my wife to patch.  ~~:) Got her up to 199 and no more.  So close!  Gotta be honest, I really enjoyed trying to figure out what she was doing wrong and getting her to fix it.  She's enthused about shooting some more on the side and making another seed.

Actually it was better than that!  We had RL from Washington.  He is the most senior instructor for the northwest region.  I am originally from Southern California (that's why I border raid down there from time to time) and now live in Washington, not Ohio.

It was a great event.  I wish it could have lasted longer.

This looks like the IIT0 check in thread.

I finally took a hat a couple weeks ago after Slim's KD 2.0 "beta class".  We didn't shoot AQT that day but we did punish various steel targets out to ~650 yards. 

I'm a KD junkie and have done almost every single one for the last couple years here in Indiana.  I've shot 7 KD rifleman scores.  Highest one being a 38 out of 40 in the black (only hits in the black count here in IN).  I've only done 3 days of regular .22LR 25M Appleseed shooting.  I hope to score a Rifleman using a .22LR soon.

"Hatted" a few years ago, but the forum was less organized back then and I never got the help I needed to help.  Re-qualified this past weekend (246, 243, 247 yea!) so I'd like to make a second push at the orange hat.  For the moment, it would appear that I don't have the authorization necessary to access the link above.  Can anybody address this for me?

Dracomeister & KPUC: The Shoot Boss (SB) for each event should have submitted a Personal Message (PM) to 'Instructor Promotions' to get you setup. It's also possible that Instructor Promotions may have missed the PM - it gets kinda busy at times.

I'll PM your respective SBs and request an IIT promotion request be sent to Instructor Promotions.

Did you tell Longrifleman at the event this weekend that you wanted to be an orange hat? If so he should have asked you a few questions and will then submit a request to have you setup as an IIT (Instructor in training).

If you didn't talk to him about that then you'll need to send him a PM (Personal Message) using the forum.

I requested and accepted an Orange hat in Wilmington, Ohio this weekend from the Shoot Boss, Longrifleman. I earned my first Rifleman score in Newark, Ohio on 10/2/2016 and repeated twice this weekend. Please let me know if there is anything else I need to do in the way of notifying you. Best regards, Goodoldfriend (Matt)

Did you tell Longrifleman at the event this weekend that you wanted to be an orange hat? If so he should have asked you a few questions and will then submit a request to have you setup as an IIT (Instructor in training).

If you didn't talk to him about that then you'll need to send him a PM (Personal Message) using the forum.

Yes, I think all that has been addressed. I did submit answers to the questions and spoke with him personally for a while. I now have access to additional forums. Please let me know if you need anything else. Thanks for your reply.

Best regards, Goodoldfriend

I need an IIT0 sheet and a Instructor manual download or emailed to me, please and thank you.

Would like to work the Dec 3/4 AS in Pensacola, FL if my calendar stays clear.

Cadman needs to submit an 'IIT' promotion if he hasn't already done so. I'll PM both him and you next.

I became a Rifle man, and an IIT some time ago, in Baconton GA.  My Instructor is Goose, Doctor John has been here a few times.  We have a growing seed here.  Goose is now a Shoot Boss and is wonderful.

Chick Norris and I were at the Douglas, WY boot camp and accepted orange hats, how do we sign up for more appleseeds?

I scored RM on the 25 yard range once with .22 and again with Centerfire and then qualified twice consecutively for the long range rocker.

Thank you

I've PMd the instructors for the IBC. You haven't been setup as an IIT yet. Maybe they haven't submitted the info to get you setup for we're waiting for instructor promotions to do their thing. Once you get setup as an IIT you'll receive info on how to sign up to instructor at shoots.

I double qualified at Arnold AFB on May 27-28, 2017.  TnColonel (Claude) was the shoot boss that weekend.  I know that he's had Internet issues, but still haven't received access to obtain Instructor's Manual or initial documentation.  Thank you.

Hello

Saw your post regarding promotions. They can only be done at an Appleseed weekend event.so, just sign up in Minnesota where & when convenient, talk to the shoot boss beforehand, and he'll work with you!

Also.  Very important: the powers that be contacted me (since I brought up a potential problem of your forum name with them) since I was working the Douglas RBC where you scored and accepted an orange hat, to begin the trail to Instructor. That's great.

We think it would be best that you delete your forum name and choose another, you'll probably just need to start that relatively easy process over. We feel that it is not an appropriate forum name, and I'm passing that request along to you. Please let me know when that is complete with a PM.

Thank you, and we'll see you up the trail!

I see from your profile that you are from Orwell. Are you planning on joining us on September 9 and 10? I'll be the shoot boss at that event. Looking forward to meeting you, as I wasn't able to make Vienna.

I had my first weekend as an orange hat July 21-22 in McLean.  Editor was the scheduled shoot boss, but when his schedule didn't cooperate, Shooter 30-06 stepped up.

I see you're still listed as a 'newbie' and not an IIT. What events have you helped at?

Howdy Appleseed,
Kevan Riley here.  11 Cherry Drive Chickasha, OK 73018 and 405-694-7441.  I seem to have two log ins and I don't see that either lists me as an IIT.  I have been helping to teach Appleseeds for quite a while, like 2012 maybe.  Skarecrow would probably reference for me.  This may be why I have not been able to see where to sign up to instruct on shoots and cannot post pictures.  CAN YOU HELP?  Please let me know.  We have an Appleseed coming up next month.
Respectfully,
Kevan Riley

I just finished my second AS and was able to re-qualify with a RM score at Colorado Springs on Apr 28/29 2019 (SB Luminous Rabbit). I completed and forwarded the IIT questions and "contract" to my SB (who is also the State Coordinator), I have an orange hat, I am sending a PM to the individuals mentioned on page 1 of this thread, and am hoping to access the instructor materials so I can begin.

Looking forward to starting, Thanks!

I already posted here a few days ago and sent PM's to my SB, and the two people mentioned on page 1 of this 10 year old thread. My SB has sent a PM to "instructor promotions" to verify my RM score and completion of PC0. I am also sending PM's to the folks on page 8 of this thread who appear to be higher up the totem pole.

I am hoping to get upgraded soon so I get signed up for the upcoming events where ever that happens.

Also, if anyone reading this can send me an instructor manual or any other materials until I get my forum status upgraded that would be great.

Looking forward to starting, Thanks!

Hi EEL, I know this is an older post, but being a newby, I and reading and learning. Being a "Blue Hat" and helping young ones on the line, was told if I want to help on the line, I have to have an "Orange Hat". Well, I have to help others, so I accepted.

Just want to thank you for posting the "cheat sheet". Just printed and will use as a reference. Thank you for helping us!!

Thanks for stepping up, Chuck!  You're correct in that AppleCore aren't permitted to instruct.  I'm pretty sure it's a legal thing. And you CLEARLY wished to help on the line, particularly with the young-uns. It was a natural next step!

I highly recommend you read this post from Maximum Ordinate when you have time. I don't know if you can access it yet - your official promotion process doesn't appear to be complete yet.  Hopefully it will be before Bill heads up to Raton and drops off the earth for  6 weeks!
