Please note that the date changed from Jan 10 to Jan 9. Also the place changed, it will most likely take place in or around Baraboo. Sorry for any inconvenience.

I added an itinerary for the meeting. It may not have everything, but it at least gives us all some things to think about before the meeting. If there are other things you want to talk about, feel free to bring it up. Also if you haven't informed me that you are coming please let me know! Thank you

I hope you are ALL planning on coming.   We have a lot to talk about, and a lot of work to do for 2010, which will all be fun, as it always is when Appleseeders get together.    Great schedule and agenda Trisha!  Way to be on top of this!

10:00 - 12:00
SHOOTERS!  TO THE LINE!  Oh yeh!!!  We are gonna shoot at the WI get together/2010 planning meeting. 

Our home range accomodates 22's and can be lots of fun, especially if all the Instructor's put their heads together and come up with a special COF for the morning shoot, plus a warming shed close by (not that we are going to need it ::) ) .   Even an occasional centerfire might be okay; bring out the neighbors and the local law enforcement.  HA!   If we want to shoot a LOT of centerfire, we'll need to arrange something other than our private home range.  That's okay too - up to you all.  Stay tuned for the secret/undisclosed range location....

May even be fabulous prizes.....traveling instructor trophies.... ..:..

12:00-12:30
LUNCH:  Eat at Colycat/OG's
Big pot o soup would be good, eh?   Bread and cheese (of course). 

12:30-5:00
2009 REVIEW, 2010 PLANNING MEETING  Please come prepared with handouts that you think are important.  Instructors and Shoot Bosses; what paperwork has been helpful for you?  Bring it/share it. 

5:00-6:00
SOCIAL HOUR. 
 
DINNER 
If DEACON is still offering to do the entree, may I speak for all of us, we are taking you up on that.  Otherwise we can do brats  or a turkey on the grill.   In any event, everyone fill in with pot luck items/beverages. 

Chime in here if you are planning on attending so we can get a rough idea of how many handouts/food.

Everyone get a good night's sleep and be at HUBERTUS on Sunday.  WOW!  18 shooters as of today; two donations and 1 membership!   

I hope we can get a February AS scheduled up nort!  It's just not fair they have to wait until March-April.  >:D


Please add these agenda items:

ADMIN:
1.  Quick review of the shoot setup process to include all the necessary paperwork, with handouts. 8)    I can print the stuff out and make copies.
2.  Appleseed and 4-H in WI.   Review Appleseed's offer/policy to 4-H groups and their leaders.  I will print.



PROMO:
1.  Print out gun show listings in WI 2010.  Who is working on this? :sos: @)




INSTRUCTOR:
1.  IBC in WI when?
2.  Instructor mentoring
3.  Print out list of WI instructors and contacts

Yes.....I am still planning on making the dinner.

I am planning on bringing a large pot of homemade spagetti.
If anyone is interested in bringing garlic/cheese bread that would be great! :P




I hope everyone has a fun and safe New Years Eve!

Hi, everyone.  I just got back from a meeting in Ramseur with the MI's and SI's.  Very productive weekend.  We will be covering a few more items than have been listed so far.  It would be better to move up the start time to, say 9 am if possible. 

Could you all let me know what you think about an earlier start and please PM us if you are going to attend.

Sorry, someone got overly excited, we won't be able to shoot KD due to all of the snow.

Please PM me and Colycat with any questions and please let me know if you are coming if you haven't yet. Thanks!!! Can't wait to see you all, I am really looking forward to this weekend.

Unfortunately, I will not be able to make it.  My father-in-law passed away last night and the wake, funeral, services, burial etc is Friday and Saturday.  This was not a total suprise as he was dealing with a prolonged/chronic illness but it does not make it any easier.

FE, Sorry to hear about your father in law. 
Please give our condolences to your wife and daughter. 

We can talk on the phone next week.

Thanks to all for coming and for bringing good food along too.

Reports to follow.  Those who took notes are at Hubertus today.

Making the range ready

Taking someone out east's advice on making one track to the target line.


Mats work well to set the rifles on in between strings of fire.



The shoveler decided not to clear the firing line so we wouldn't have to shoot over the snow.

Just a warm-up to the Hubertus winter icicle-seed.

G69,
arghhmmmm!    You had quite an adventure all before sunup!  In your case, AAR's are after-adventure-reports.  :o   That guy is right, you should write a book! 

  We needed a little shooting break between the chili and the spaghetti and a full agenda of plotting for 2010 in WI.

Many thanks to the Instructors who made the trip to Baraboo.  Thank you Deacon for the tasty meal and to everyone for bringing food and drinks. :bow:

I hope you all feel it was a good meeting and we are off to a good start in the state.  Now is the time to sign up for the shoots that are on the schedual already, and keep watching for the ones that are in the works.

Remember to be on the look out for more ranges or we will never get to our instructor capacity of 72 shoots this year O0
