If I recall correctly from my visit a few years back, there were many fewer trees than present today.  Some large trees were left in fields to provide shade for cattle

This link http://npshistory.com/publications/mima/parkers-revenge-archaeology.pdf is to a detailed report of an archaeological excavation of the site of Parker's Revenge.  Some of it is rather dry, but overall the report is interesting.

Great Lakes Region - IL, IN, KY, OH, MI, WI / IL Appleseed in 2022?
« Last post by Chgowiz on Yesterday at 07:51:13 PM »
Hello! I attended my first Appleseed in 2021 in Stockton IL and thoroughly enjoyed it - learned a lot!

I'd love to attend another one (or two) in 2022, but nothing on the calendar yet. Anything forthcoming soon? :fingers crossed:

We had our December Mid Range Prone match at the Vets Shooting Center on 3 December. Weather was excellent, with variable wind. Only a couple of us sling shooters this time, the rest of the competitors were shooting bolt rifles with a bipod(F Class and F T/R). We managed some decent scores and a good time was had by all! A good thing about shooting 600 yards on a regular basis, is that when it comes to shooting 400 on KD, it's not really a hard thing to do, just know your rifle, come ups and ammo, then you're good to go!

As usual, we extend an invitation to those who happen to be in the AO and want to shoot with some old hand Appleseeders at KD or the reduced course, to give us a shout, we'll likely saddle up and meet you at the range! By the way, if you don't have a suitable rifle, we'll lend you one!

Quinncannon, out.

Homeschooling and Appleseed / Re: Idea for a Work Sheet
« Last post by 300berg on December 03, 2021, 01:44:00 PM »
I like the idea of more homeschool interaction.  I believe nationally more than 10% of all children are now homeschooled...big market and lots of interest.

I'd be happy to collaborate with you on this.

Homeschooling and Appleseed / Idea for a Work Sheet
« Last post by Mahamotorworks on December 03, 2021, 12:16:25 AM »
With the recent shift to more people homeschooling. Would it be possible to make a work sheet that would allow for some more interaction and learning besides the show up and shoot?  Was thinking along the line that has the student do research on what we cover in the preamble to the strike and the Dangerous old men/women. That way instead of a Cadre telling them you can ask them about certain dates or events and let them share/teach us and the other shooters. I think a before and after work sheet would be a great tool to help spread the message and help the over all interaction.

History / Re: Flag of the Month - December 2021 the Gadsden Flag

I greatly appreciate you and my friend @mahamotorworks putting this all together.  I hope this is repeated every month of every year.  I like to bring the flag of the month to the shoots I am able to work and display it.

That's awesome, Sir.  This is all the major Revolutionary flags we could find,  so I have one more to share next mouth, and then it's done.  But you can still go back to the post guide and go through them whenever you like!

For social media I was thinking of taking the year off, and going back through them starting at the beginning in Jan 2023. That way it'll have been long enough that they feel fresh again!

Thank you so much,
Traci
