All fine looking patches there!

I know Texas has some, both a Texas instructor patch and a Texas KD patch.

Wyoming is putting something together, too.

That ‘Ohio 2016’ is one fine lookin’ patch!

Now, I don’t mean to hijack a thread (again), but where is the post with the other state patches? I’ve seen the post with the Tenn and Alabama patches, not any others. I think these patches show a healthy dose of local pride.

Greetings Appleseed Nation,
As Debbie is apparently busy at this point in time, I thought that I would start this thread for her so that all of our new Riflemen and Distinguished Riflemen could chime in.
Saturday morning, bright and early the first of the 19 participants for this weekends Project Appleseed's History, Heritage and Marksmanship Clinic began arriving at the Marana Shooting Club.
By 0835 we were all ready for the 0900 Safety briefing. At 0855 the last participant signed in and we were off to the Races... Having not enough Target stands to accommodate the entire crew of shooters we began with 2 relays. After a quick journey through the safety rules and safe rifle, the 1st relay was "quickly" up to the firing line. After the 2nd relay filled out their Red Coats and the scores were recorded we were into the Steady Hold Factors for the Prone position. We "quickly" proceed through a 5 pack of sighter squares, then posted an AQT to use for reference on the sitting/kneeling and standing practice, because the Shoot Box did not arrive in time. We diligently trudged on through the day, ending on a high note. We were able to get to an AQT on the first day and three of our participants achieved the coveted Rifleman Patch. The PM Red Coat showed marked improvement from the AM and everyone headed for home with enthusiasm in their hearts.

Sunday began with putting together enough target backers to accommodate all of our 18 shooters that returned for another day's worth of floggings. Our AM red Coat looked promising with several of the shooters clearing the target. After a few more sighter squares, we were off and running again. Three AQT's before lunch, a fine lunch consisting of whatever you brought, sprinkled with a healthy dose of History and Heritage with Dangerous Old Men and Brave Women. After lunch we were able to accomplish filling out three more AQT's. After having completing our parting Red Coat, cleaned up targets, backers, stands and our brass.
The shooters involved with this event were truly an amazing bunch, yielding 7 (seven) new Riflemen, two (2) of whom we must honor as Distinguished Riflemen!!!  :bow:  :snipersmi  :bow:
Now for the good news, 5 (five) of our new Riflemen stepped up to take on the challenges of the 7th Step, 2 others are thinking about it and another will be joining us as an Applecore Volunteer.
We would also like to thank the Marana Shooting Club for allowing us to make use of their fine facility.  :F

Now for the business end of this post: Directly related to the number of things that Debbie is involved in, I ask for all of the fine folks who accepted orange hats and chose to volunteer with Project Appleseed please PM me your Forum name, so that I may get your promotions started. Thank You.

Lastly I would like to thank everyone who attended this event for making this weekend one to remember!
"till we meet again", Happy Trails,

That sounds like a GREAT course you've worked up StevenK. Did any of the shooters need angled mounts in order to get on target at 200? I really like the efficiency of a rimfire KD. Thanks for the write-up!

What an outstanding one day event! 

Thank you to all the dedicated instructors & volunteers for an exceptional day of history and marksmanship.

The Club provides a wonderful site for both the shooting and education components of the program.

I have attended several Appleseed’s and the presentation of the First Strike by Wendy was Exceptional.  Her background of public speaking and passion for the material were readily apparent.

It’s nice to see the rapid expansion of events in South Florida.  Looking forward to attending several Appleseed’s in 2020.
What an interesting event?! I'm going to give 200yd .22lr a try. :snipersmi

Below is the patch we did in early 2017 to recognize the great work Ohio did in 2016.

We are proposing an Instructor Boot Camp in Las Vegas, Nevada, for Friday, December 13th, followed by an Appleseed on the 14th and 15th where you can apply what you’ve learned for IITs and instructors. Morpheus would be the shoot boss. There is no charge to attend an IBC, beyond range fees paid at the gate.

IBC isn’t just for IITs:

-INSTRUCTORS will have skills polished and pick up current doctrine.

-IITs will learn new skills and if passing their PCs, may be promoted.

-SHOOTERS over age 13 wanting to instruct but waiting on that Rifleman patch may attend, provided they’re signed up on the forum.
For all, it’s a great opportunity to learn under the supervision of an Appleseed Senior Instructor. You get to spend time with great people from all over America, pretty much the only company I care to keep anymore.

The only possible downside to this is that what happens in Vegas isn’t staying in Vegas. It will be posted on the AAR, with pics!

We need to know whether there is active interest not later than November 21st, so we can make arrangements and post the IBC in a timely manner. Don't wait for someone else to do it; if you're interested and able make the first move.

Actual sign-ups will be on the forum, so please log in. We can't sign you up if you're not on the forum.

Those interested and able to attend may call or text Rick at 505-264-8892 from 9am to 8pm mountain time. If texting, please ensure you leave a forum name and phone number.
