Anyone from the Shreveport area, SOUND-OFF here.
« on: December 27, 2009, 12:58:17 PM »
We need to get Appleseed established up here, send me a PM or respond to this thread and let us know if your in the area and want to do some practice together. I would love to shoot the AQT with anyone up here. I'm a member of a range and can go anytime you can.

Looking around at the other activity around the country,its not hard to see that this area 's potential may soon put us in the largest appleseed territory ever.Imagine that ,seeing the best instructors,the largest turnouts,the best shoots,and maybe Fred himself right here in OUR area.I would like to formally thank you for your effort in getting the ball rolling and ME started

Has any one contacted ulshop about getting this going? I cant travel a lot but would be glad to support opening up AS for Northern LA anyway I can. Perhaps we could locate a range withing easy access for that area so its within 2 hours of the large population centers? Question questions always questions.

"POP" and I have a place we are working on, a range called Long Range Alley. We also have a list of ranges we will approach and try out if we don't get Long Range Alley first. The last option is my land and we are going to set up a  DAR there, with "Gralen" and some other friend's that will help. "Gralen" is a close friend and a lot of help, so say Hi to Gralen. We are trying to set this up for North LA and I think we can eventually do another in Alex. in the future. On the Alex range we do need input on where to do this if you have any ideas, let me know! Thanks "Rhodes".

Hey Johnny, Don, Rhodes... Great meeting you and everyone else last weekend in Sherburne.

Just wanted to let you guys know you have help from Dallas/Ft Worth if you ever need it. I'm just 3 hrs away.

I'm on the Texas side of the border, but if I can get my passport renewed by next weekend, I'd like to be able to attend my first AS up at Bodcau. I don't speak Cajun very well, but maybe I can understand enough to get by. ^-^

olfart,

Go ahead and pre-register.  Wouldn't surprise me if SHV is a sellout.

I'm in Corpus Christi with family ties in SHV.  I will be there and look forward to meeting you.  Besides, we need a few Texans to show'em how its done.  **)

OK, I've registered and got my email receipt. However, when I try to print my ticket, I get an error message:

"There was an error opening this document. The file is damaged and could not be repaired."

I went to the EventBrite site and viewed my ticket, but same error when I tried to print it from there. What's next?


Thanks
John
