Here's the article about last weekends Appleseed in Buckingham. It's pretty good.

The top link is the article and the second is a picture gallery.

If you make any comments on the Post's site, please be sure not to say somethig that you'll regret. The comments are just baiting us to say something controversial.

Thanks,

Best to say nothing than something bad.  The article is a good one overall and hats off to the VA guys who watched their SOM SOM and gave the entire program a very good accounting of what we do.

Good job VA!

What happened to the other Washington Post thread?

It says it's now off limits to me? Did someone delete it?

   The thread turned into a debate on dealing with the media, and was moved over to the instructor board for the benefit and edification of all instructors...
"Ready to eat dirt and sweat bore solvent?" - Ask me how to become an RWVA volunteer!

     "If you can read this without a silly British accent, thank a Revolutionary War veteran" - Anon.

     What about it, do-nothings? You heard the man, jump on in...
