Illinois 6/10 SITREP
« on: June 04, 2010, 03:04:17 PM »
Ok Team Illinois, here we are coming up to mid year and we are way behind our goals.

As impressive as the year is moving, we are not doubling the number of shooters on the line for 2010.

At this point last year (June 6-7), we had 199 pre-regs for 7 shoots. In 2010, we have 296 pre-regs for 10 shoots up to June 5-6.

Of course the good news is that our attendance average has moved up from 28.4 to 29.6 per shoot, over the same time frame, and of course, we may have a few walk ons to help out at Waterman this weekend. The other good news is that last year we only had 2 shoots in all of June with 50 pre-regs total. This year we have 4 shoots with the Bloomington Shoot with 46 pre-regs all by it's self! If all 4 Shoots sold out, we would have 185 shooters on the line in Illinois for June, but it looks like that isn't happening unless we get about 60 walk ons at Waterman, and sell out the remainder at Ottawa and Bonfield.

But the bad news is that we have not been able to sell out Waterman yet. We need to be able to utilize that 80 Shooter cap, or we will not reach our goals.

We did not Double (or triple) our shoots this year. We based the schedule on the rather small amount of Shoot Bosses that we have access to. ..... 2

It looks pretty certain, that by the end of June, we will have doubled the quantity of Shoot Bosses in IL, but we really need to triple them by the end of the year. Which of course means we will need atleast 2 more Red Hats to come up rather soon, but let the truth be known, If you were an IIT at Pappy's IBC this past January, We expect you to be a Red Hat by the next one. It is that important, and we hope that we are giving you plenty of oppurtunities to progress. We have 28 shoots already lined up for 2010 and I'm sure we will break 30 before long.

We had a lot of progress at Chillicothe this past Month. A lot of IIT's had the chance to move up and SBIT is in full swing. We need this to continue, so we need you to show up to as many shoots as possible.

The next BIGGIE is promo. I would like you to consider how well good ole' fashioned boots on the ground get it done. They get it done via team work.... Remember those 3-man teams??? How many Gun Shops and Sporting Goods Stores are within easy reach of your daily commute??? Do you keep flyers in your vehicle so that folks you meet can get the info? We have a dry spell in Gun Shows, so every other promo means needs to be done. But Remember, the best promo, is looking someone in the eye and shaking their hand and handing them a flyer after you had the chance to pitch the program.

Lists, Lists, and more Lists!!

List #1, Familiar Prospects....

Friends, Family and co-workers. Put the list together, and then personally invite them to every shoot you go to. Yes, it may drive some of them nuts, good, tell them that you will stop bugging them as soon as they attend a shoot.

List #2, Gun Shops/Sporting Goods

Establish contact with the owner/manager, and request permission to leave a stack of flyers. Then check back  weekly.

List #3, Potentially Sympathetic Partners

Look around your area for.... Boy Scout/Cub Scout/Girl Scout Packs, Veteran Organizations, Sons of the American Revoulution, Daughter of the American Revolution, history buff clubs, Tea Party Groups, Oathkeepers, 912 Project, etc etc

You get the idea, spread the word and promote. We have some serious catching up to do folks.

see you on the trail.

Here are the POTENTIAL numbers crunched...

Illinois Appleseed Range Capacity


Range   (cap)                                     Qty Shoots by Year (total pre-Req)

Bloomington  (45).......'07 = 1 (52),  '08 = 1 (42), '09 = 1 (41),    '10 = 1  (45)
Ottawa (25)................'07 = 1 (35),  '08 = 3 (69), '09 = 9 (210),  '10 = 6 (150)
Chillicothe (30)............'07 = 0 (0),    '08 = 1 (35), '09 = 2 (39),    '10 = 2 (60)
Elizabeth (25)...............'07 = 0 (0),    '08 = 0 (0).   '09 = 1 (25),    '10 = 0 (0)
Alton (25).......................'07 = 0 (0),    '08 = 0 (0),  '09 = 1 (25),    '10 = 2 (50)
Bonfield  (30/75)..........'07 = 0 (0),    '08 = 0 (0),   '09 = 2 (56),   '10 = 4 (300)

Carmi (30)...................'07 = 0 (0),    '08 = 0 (0),   '09 = 1 (17),   '10 = 1 (30)
Durand (25)...................'07 = 0 (0),    '08 = 0 (0),   '09 = 1 (25),   '10 = 4 (100)

Total Shoots (total pre-req) '07 = 2 (87) '08 = 5 (114) '09 = 19 (463) '10 = 30 (1610)

2007 Potential = 70/ Actual = 87 (124% of potential)

2008 Potential = 150/ Actual = 146 (97% of potential)

(168% increase in shooters over '07, 250% increase in shoots over '07)

2009 Potential = 520/ Actual = 463 (89% of potential)

(317% increase in shooters over '08, 380% increase in shoots over '08)

2010 Potential = 1610 (348% increase in potential shooters, 158% increase in shoots)

Ranges with * indicate updates.  Waterman shoots increased from 6 to 7 including the "300" shoot, plus the addition of Sparta and Marion, for a total shoot increase of 3, and total POTENTIAL shooter increase of 370
