After Action Reports / Waverly, TN AAR March 23 & 24 2019
« Last post by bluegrasscolonel on Today at 05:15:40 AM »
The Humphries County Sheriff’s office was kind enough to allow Project Appleseed to host an event this past weekend at their range.  Thanks in no small part to the efforts of IIT Sgt-at-Arms’ efforts to promote this event in the area, it was sold out within days of it being posted on the schedule.

Saturday morning was pleasant and cool.  The shooters began showing up early and were ready to get down to business.  There were only a couple of shooters who had attended an Appleseed previously.  The opening and First Strike (by Tennessee Beast) were warmly received.

Day one was filled with smiles from the shooters as they began to see their shooting improve.  There were several young people attending and they all had great attitudes.

Saturday dawned with threats of rain.  Despite this, every shooter returned and was enthusiastic about reviewing what they had learned the previous day.  When we did move outside it was raining, but several pop-up canopies protected the line.

Scores on the AQT’s improved throughout the day and Josh (who qualified on his first event) shot a Rifleman score 3 times during the day.  We had a few knocking on the door and feel confident they will earn that badge on their next trip.

By mid-afternoon the sun was out and the day was quite beautiful.

As we centered up to score the final Hits Count target of the event, one of our young shooters was the only one to clear the Redcoat!  There was applause and smiles all around.

We had a great cadre at this event and the shooters were very kind in their comments as we concluded.  Thanks to Living Hand, RustyGun, Black Knight, Tennessee Beast, Sgt-at-Arms and ArmyVet1969 for working hard to make this a successful event.

Congratulations, minuteman1636, for scoring Rifleman, joining the Instructor Cadre, and taking the “bull by the horns” attending an Instructor Boot Camp.  Be sure to have read your Instructors Manual before the event so that you’ll have more awareness of the flow for the IBC and an Appleseed weekend.  There’s much that occurs behind the scenes that  you aren’t aware of as a shooter!

I am attending an Instructors Boot Camp in Kansas this coming weekend. So, you will eventually have one instructor in the KC area once I get fully qualified.

Sunny spring weather made our "season opener" at Logan's Ferry Sportsmen's Club enjoyable for all who attended.  Our thanks to the club for hosting Project Appleseed again this year.  The students applied the points of instruction to their existing marksmanship skills and their downrange results reflected improvement.  Joe D. qualified Rifleman on his first AQT on Saturday (217) and joined the 1st PA Rifle Regiment by clearing his final redcoat on Sunday.  EZ3 (217) and glock1911 (225) re-qualified on Sunday, with glock1911 also clearing the final redcoat.  Shawn and Joe E both reached the threshold, shooting over 190, but couldn't push the door open.  Next time, guys!
