Maryland Appleseeds are becoming a reality!
« on: April 19, 2010, 10:25:16 PM »
Appleseed is finally coming to Maryland. 3 shoots are scheduled for Apl, May, and June 2010 (respectively). If these are successful, I will keep rolling with them, for as long as people are willing to learn, attend, and shoot. If you can help, need info, or wish to get this going at YOUR club, PM me and we'll make it happen. We gotta build a cadre of Instructors and Instructors In Training (IIT's) for Maryland, if we want to keep this going, long term. Step up to the plate, shoot an Appleseed, and make this program a success in OUR state....Gotta get off the couch if you want to be "a man who knows what he's about"   BeSwift

Wow I missed this chance. I live in Annapolis. All sold out. Good job though.

I sometimes shoot with the Navy rifle team.

The September Appleseed at AAF&G was great! 
I'll be back with my son and daughter (and probably a few friends too). 
October & November are "sold out" though. 
Are any new dates to be scheduled soon?
Then, how can we get some centerfire Appleseed shooting happening in MD?

A date has been set for a December shoot at AAFG, but it has not been posted online for sign up yet. It will be soon.
I'm working on other winter dates, and actively seeking other ranges or even private property that would allow us to host a center fire shoot. I'd REALLY like to get something going on the Eastern Shore or Delaware... There's gotta be a friendly land owner that has 25 meters with a natural backstop willing to help return us to a Nation of Rifleman..but so far, no one has pointed them in my direction....I need some help here Md Shooters...  BeSwift
