It is final.

Salcha Elementary School May 15, 0900 - 1400.

Myself, Joseph, and Travis will be driving the RV up on Sunday AM, spending the night in Salcha.

We will be returning after the presentations around 1500 - 1600.

After setting up the the flag & map stands, the firelock & c display, and Rev War book display we will be presenting a modified Three Strikes to the fourth through six graders.

After lunch the K through third graders will "tour" the flag stand and firelock &c display.

Local homeschoolers and the community have been invited.

AS Tri-folds and our current schedule will be available to participants.

Anyone wanting to help will be more than welcome!

Please PM or call 440-2651

A few photos from Sunday.

Thanks Steck!

I'm headed out of town and away from internet for a while. Will post more when I get back.

By far the most experienced Appleseed in recent memory.  Many returnees and that speaks volumes for what Appleseed has to offer.

Iron sharpens iron and it seemed that the word of the week was competition.  Whether it was with yourself or with your friends and family.

Chris spent a weekend with his son (Nate) getting dirty, tired and achy...quality time.  I don't know what the side bet was but I do understand that Nate has to pay up since Dad was up in the 200s.  William was consistently in the 200s but had equipment issues as the weekend wore on.  Yes, it was frustrating to watch but he grit his teeth and kept at it.  Travis, Derek L and his son came along to make it a family event.  Aiden was drinking from the firehose but he toughed it out all weekend.  I don't care how green you are when you arrive.  If you can be safe, work hard and not give up you are welcome on my line any time!  Andrei recovered from last month's Appleseed and fought equipment and elbow problems all weekend.  Derek quietly plugged away at everything and did quite well for his first time.  I believe that everybody got out of boot camp!

William and Derek both had instruction down pat and made our Sunday vacation pretty easy.  For all of you so inclined...I have a free hat once you get that pesky patch thing out of the way.

Oh yeah...Derek L (who will always be a Marine...he just isn't serving at the moment) and Andrei (who stood an opposite watch tower) easily earned their patch.  Both scored above 225.  Congratulations to both of them!  To everybody who didn't earn a patch, don't beat yourself up.  To cherry pick from my closing quote
 (from Teddy Roosevelt):
"It is not the critic who counts...The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena..."

Thanks to all for a great shoot and the opportunity to be among Americans who chose to spend quality time with family and friends, work hard and improve themselves.

Hope to see y'all again "in the arena",
Thank you Luigi, MattNH, and all the rest who made this a great Appleseed experience.  The shooting instruction was excellent as always, as were the history lessons.  It was a tightly run, safe line.

I was half of the father/son team.  Now we'll have to get mom and younger brother out.

 A big thank you to Morpheus and family for the trek north to run this event. Very much appreciated.

 Also to the Ct IT crew who worked the shoot, all of the attendees were pleased with the efforts of those who volunteered.

 Nice job on the pics and link Scout74, the visual end of things I need to work on myself.  :sos:

 A Rifleman persists.
