I wanted to print out the letter, and it is scrambled on my computer, the Appleseed Host Applications came out fine.

Later, 1/4/10, 11 PM PST it now works well, thanks. O0

What program did you use to open the host letter? If it was Microsoft word what version is it?

The Host Introduction Letter is a document that opens only in Microsoft Word 2003 or later.  I'm not sure if Sun's Open Office, a common MS Word substitute, will open it.

The reason it is a template is so you can easily put in the recipient's contact info at the top, and your info at the end.  Then you save each one separately for each club, while keeping the original template for future use.  Please see the instructions.

If anyone thinks I should, I can re-issue the document as a regular Word .doc file.  Open Office could open that.

Earl, are you using Open Office?

FYI, the Host Introduction Letter opened fine and was editable in Open Office v3.1 . F99, thanks for these and your other downloadable resources.

The new host application has been posted as a download in the original post.  Once the form is available on TIPS the download files will be removed and a link to TIPS will be posted in its place.

Title: Intro letter
Post by: Maximum Ordinate on January 21, 2014, 01:13:12 PM
The intro letter is good, but seemed a bit long for what I needed.

Attached, you'll find a shorter version of it.  This version got my foot in the door at a local range to brief their Board of Directors.

Most people don't have the time or patience for a three-page letter these days.

I think Rusty's letter should be the new standard.

It flows better and it doesn't reference modern politics (e.g., international forces taking our guns).

One thing that troubles me is that these intro letters reference the "Appleseed Project"  not "Project Appleseed".

I have to literally remind myself that we are promoting Project Appleseed every time I say it or write it.  It is getting easier.

DD,

I think that's a fair suggestion.  I've updated the letter to reflect your input.  Thanks!    :)

Old topic, but I'm prepping for a talk with the BoD at my club tonight, and I grabbed some of the templates here for a quick update.

Removed some duplicated info and re-flowed the latest template I was able to find, and I'm throwing this up here for further comment / use.

Edit: Fixed a couple more references to Appleseed Project and stripped info. The 177kb attachment is the one I'm using tonight. Very generic.

I had some questions about hosting an Appleseed and I hope this is the right thread.

1) Which is the correct Host Agreement? I found 2 in my files, but both appear old (see attached)

2) Once completed, where does the form get sent? It just says hand to Appleseed representative on the form, but what does he/she do with it?

3) The "Want to host an Appleseed?" page is no longer on our website. Shouldn't we add that back? I hate to create more work for Scuzzy, but seems like we need that.

Thanks!

The host apps on TIPS here are the latest:

Although it really doesn't matter what version you use. The new one has less info to fill out and just gets the ball rolling. The old versions require more info that is needed just to get your foot in the door. All that extra info can be obtained once you know a range is willing and able to host an Appleseed.

Even though we don't have a link on the website we do still get inquiries which we process. What we do get too much of is people that want us to have a shoot near their home so they don't have to drive two hours to an event. These are people who seem to think you can just call a range and say let's have an event. As anyone that has ever tried to get a range to host an Appleseed knows dealing with the Board of Directors is not something you can do easily.
