Hey Jon...good job on the setup.
Ditto!

I will be arriving sometime Friday evening. Maybe we can get together at the range to do a walk through

I should be in town early afternoon.   1400... ish... Jon, do you want to meet at the range?   You want me to give you a call when I get in?   Should we just pick a time when all of us can get together?


That would be great. Could you PM me with contact info?

I've got a commitment in helena for the Race For The Cure....but plan to bust my heinie right out of there as soon as I can.  I'll swing by and lend a hand wherever you boys and girls need me.  I'll call Glocker or Clodhopper first.

look forward to it.

I sent you my Info.  I think it would be great to meet for some coffee or something just before heading to range.  At the interstate exit by Cabela's there is a McDonalds, a Burger King and a Convenience Store.  I prefer the store coffee over all of them.  The range is tricky to get to, the first time I went out there I ended up on the Crow Indian Reservation.  I will need to make up a few road signs to help the Appleseeders.  Just let me know Friday what you'll want to do.  You have my numbers; I will most likely be at the range all morning anyway.

My son is going to have the day off work.  He's 17.  I tried to sign up today but of course it's closed now.  Can I bring him along?

I am very pleased with all your hard work MC. You have done a wonderful job. Congrats on Rifleman and being our new IIT. The Blue Creek Shooting Sports Complex was a outstanding location for the shoot. The weather was wonderful. A ton of fun was had and Rifleman were born.

I am looking forward to Billings Appleseed part Duex

Shoot boss for Boulder???

Some months back, I sent a message to instructor scheduling volunteering to be Shoot boss for the Boulder shoot...Many days passed with no word or listing on instructor schedule.
So I sent instructor scheduling a message volunteering to be an instructor at the Boulder shoot and was immediately listed as such.
Not wanting to bring grief to my fellow appleseed volunteers I thought we could just have a instruction clinic and be over the drama.
I have already sent a course of fire to the other instructors and plan to keep the records and send in the necessary paper work.
If sbit means shoot boss in training, no I have not been though any, but I was cast on the griddle as shoot boss for Garfield Washington last summer and was shoot boss at Three Forks MT. and Boulder MT last Fall.
Appleseed instruction was delivered, Riflemen and riflewomen were made, the story of April 19 was told, no one was wounded, the range cleaned up, and applecentral received the funds collected.

Hey Clodhopper, I've been meaning to get back to you re. this post.

I searched back a few months and saw that what you say is true. I'm not sure what happened but  I need to apologize for dropping that ball.

Clearly you and the rest of the MT crew are doing a lot for the program, and I hate to think of good efforts being frustrated by administrative failures.

I'm sure we'll all be glad when you get that Green Hat! I personally am not quite in a position to judge, but it sounds like you deserve it!
