New Philadelphia, OH - New Location for 2010!!!
« on: December 27, 2009, 12:44:02 AM »
Hear ye!  Hear ye!  Hear ye!

How would you feel if I told you about a range just outside of New Philadelphia (40 minutes south of Canton, east-central OH) where we can fit 75 shooters?  What if I threw in: a beautiful location... modern facilities and clubhouse... concessions offering lunch... camping encouraged...

Sounds pretty great right?  What else could we ask for?!

Oh yeah, how about:

A 600 yard range!    :~

 ^:)^

I know I couldn't be more excited!

I first talked to members of the Tusco Rifle Club in New Philadelphia last winter.  Those members have apparently been spreading the word since the club President replied after I contacted him that they have heard good things about The Appleseed Project and would love to host us.

You'll have a chance to see this absolutely beautiful range for yourself on April 17-18 and June 19-20.  

The Event Information Page with more details can be found HERE.

Registration for April 17-18 is found HERE.
Registration for June 19-20 is found HERE.

Oh yeah.....  be prepared for a few more of these types of announcements in the next couple months.   :cool2:

Awesome!!!!  This might have to be one of those where an instructor just goes to hone their own skills instead of instruct. :---  Great work Mike.

hehe, my strong hope (not promise, just hope) is that Instructors can rotate out and take time at the 600 yard range.

I know for a FACT that in June that will be the case, as well as any additional dates New Phila is generous enough to invite us.
