Christian Home Educators Fellowship Conference
« on: May 03, 2010, 11:14:23 PM »
 I was wondering if we would like to man a both at the Christian Home Educators Fellowship Conference in St.Charles on June 22 and 23 (Tuesday and Wednesday).  I will be there any way but would need help as I do have other things I need to do at the conference. 
 I really think we could get a lot of shooters out of this crowd and I always enjoy the speakers. Some of the seminar titles for this year are "Alvin York, Christian hero of the Great War", "Patric Henry of Virginia:the forgotten founding father", "The terminators fall: the Delusion of the divine right of kings", "Remarkable Providences of the Yorktown campaign in the War of Independence".
 As you can gather these people will love Appleseed, let me know if you can help me spread the word.

Best wishes with this endeavor O0

Sounds a grand idea to me... we've been having some success with home school groups over the last year or so, and it's a great demographic for us.  Kids are the future, after all, and the more of them I can get on the line, the happier I'll be.

Unfortunately, I can't get away from the office in the middle of the week.  There's no way I'm going to make this event myself.

Volunteers?

Same here.  I think it's a great idea but like Chris, St. Louis and middle of the week are not a good combination for those of us on the KC side.  I'm sure Mike would be willing, but he can't usually get out of work in the middle of the week either.

Can anyone else make it?  I'd hate to have the opportunity pass us by...

It's just down the road from me.  Any details like hours?  I work basically from 0500 til 1900 Mon-Fri.

Speaking of this...Do we have any inroads to the Tea Party Movement?  Or is that a..."cautionary" group due to politics?

Howdy, Greg and the MO group:

For ya'll in MO, let Texas "Show You"  ;D  about a Cotillion (sp?) that a local Corpus Christi, South Texas, Home School group does every year.  A Cotillion is a dance that they do at Valentines where they do all the old dances popular around the time of the American Revolution.

This year, they invited Appleseed to set up a table.  One of the Home School students is our own "EyeQ," an IIT3 who graduates this month.

We had a table with Appleseed literature and we talked with everyone.  We had 10 or 15 minutes to talk to the group of about 250 students and parents.

The attached photo is of EyeQ and POP.  We got about 16 families to sign the register and a lot more who are interested.  The Home School group is going to support us in their communiques.

As greybeard says "Kids are our future."   ;)   Good luck on your endeavor.

  Do we have any banners, posters, Brochures or any thing like that made up already?  We can make do with what ever we have but resources would be help full.
  This event runs from 9AM to 9PM so if any one is near by they could possibly help in the evening.
Thanks

I have a banner, but it will be tough to get to you.

I recommend you scroll down the Missouri board a bit until you see the 2010 MO Schedule that you can download.  You might need to update it with the St. Louis shoot that will soon be on the schedule, but otherwise, that is a good starting point.  Take some targets if you have some.  If not, Mike can probably get you some samples.

Most of the promo materials on this site electronically if you can find them.  If you can't find them, I can probably email them to you.

I recommend you get a copy of this months Backwoods Home so you can show it off as well.

Good luck!

I can have some handouts and targets ready for you to pick up at the May Osage shoot. You can use my set of Rev. War flags as long as you understand the consequences of not getting them back ....    ~~:)     :)

 Good news I just learned that the CHEF people have agreed to let us have a booth at the conference  ^:)^  I didn't want to plan more until I was sure we were in.  I really have high hopes for recruitment there especially now that we have a shoot at bullseye.

  I have the booth reserved and payed for, I am currently gathering materials for display/hand out.  I have a case of CMP catalogues I wish I could find some color brochures for Appleseed.  I have a small TV and am thinking to show Irene's video and maybe an old 1942 army training video I have.  I need to put together a dummy rifle so we can demonstrate positions/ shf.  If I can borrow a banner or flag or whatever that will be great. 
  They tell me that preregistration's are up from last year by 1000, I don't know what the total numbers will be but that's a lot of people where I come from so any one who wants to help is greatly appreciated.  I will have to give you a badge so you can get in so P.M. me and I will get you my cell number.  Feel free to contact me if you have any questions.  I expect I will see most of you at Osage Beach the weekend before so we can plan there too. 
 Thanks for the interest, keep your power dry :~

Thursday his wife spent all day at the conference center promoting AS Nemo Hunter and I relieved them when we got off work.  Thursday reported to me that the Flags borrowed from Long Shot drew in a lot of the young who drug their parents to us.  He was right I watched a young boy looking at the flags and then talk to mom, here they came.  We told them about AS and she said they would be there. 
    Many of us have been promoting at the gun shows and we are missing people who have never shot much.  We need to start attending county fairs, any kind of event that would have us such as the convention center.

 I believe the conference was a success we had a lot of interest, not one negative comment.  We had people from all over the state of MO and IL (IL owes us one we gave out as many IL fliers as we did MO) and one from WI.  Two people asked what they had to do to host an appleseed on their farms, one from Potsie one in Bolling Green .^:)^  Of course we gave them Greybeard's contact info.  I have never met so manny people who did not own guns but were enthusiastic about their second amendment rights and learning to shoot. 
  We demonstrated sling use and told the DOM stories over and over again, great pratice for us orange hats.
  Special thanks to my wife who did a great job of seventh stepping even thought she has never been to Appleseed herself, and to Nemohunter and Jungle George who came out to help after long hot days of work.  Thanks also to everyone who lent us materials and encouragement, esp Dugin
 P.S. everyone we met who knew anything about Appleseed had learned about it through Back Woods Home Magazine, well done Dugin O0.

Good work!  Hopefully you got to stop by Graf's reloading while visiting St. Chuck.  Or maybe even venture into lovely  ;D downtown St. Louis to the Hi Tech Ammunition warehouse.  You can schedule pick ups there with no sales tax!
