Bleh, I bet not everybody can get to the regional boards.   ::)

Here's the announcement:

We need another IBC.  August 7-8 looks good from a schedule standpoint.  I'm sure we'll come up with the 4 IITs we need.  I want a red hat for every two IITs to make this super smooth.

Saturday will be a very long day teaching you everything we know about how to pass the skills of the rifle to your fellow Americans.

Sunday will be a lesson in passing on our Heritage, taught by the very places on which it began.  Lexington Green, Old North Bridge, Merriam's Corner, Battle Road, Fiske Hill... you get the idea.

More details coming as soon as I get a little sense of how many are coming...

Well, who's in?     ^:)^

Not sure if I will be an IIT or not. Checking time commitments. Will know by Colebrook, CT (7/31).

There's a shoot in Harvard in two weeks...
Unhappy it is ... to reflect that a brother's sword has been sheathed in a brother's breast, and that the once happy and peaceful plains of America are either to be drenched with blood or inhabited by slaves. Sad alternative! But can a virtuous man hesitate in his choice?

Stuart, you only need shoot Rifleman once and attend at least 2 Appleseeds as a student to qualify as an IIT. If you want the Hat, just say so at Simsbury and you'll be instructing at Colebrook (or Harvard or Jericho...). I know you have a passion for this program and a willingness to teach. O0

As for me and the IBC: just waiting on confirmation of housing arrangements..,

Crak, you must have known I was in need of some serious Rifleman Recharging, seeing as how I am missing the July shoots I wanted to get too.

If I am back from the Gulf, and oil free, I will be there!

Well apparently I spoke to soon. It seems there are other plans for what is left of my summer. I will not be back in time for this event.  :wall:

No worries, Ed.  You're doing God's work out there in the Gulf saving the shrimp(s).  We'll eat some in your honor and this'll give Kaisha a chance to catch up. :) 

Get together with Mike93lx and figure out a date you both can make it and we'll just have another one.

 :'(  I was really looking forward to this, but alas, I'll be camping in VT that weekend.

Have fun out there.

There will be another coming up sometime after those Aug dates, (almost 100% certain) in VT.

All we need is 4.  There are more than 4 already, I think.

Dude, I think the group on that square is the same pattern as the splotch on Gorbechav's melon.

Very artistic!

Nice!  Make sure you guys prereg, as it has a very direct effect on how many instructors I drag in to teach.  The ratios can turn the day from awesome to grueling.

We will start at 9:00 AM.

Meet at the Harvard Sportsman's Club clubhouse. (Crak will be along when he wakes up.  &))

If the gate isn't open when you get there, just wait a few minutes; we'll post someone there with a keycard to open up for attendees.

Outstanding IBC by Crak & crew. It was a long day both days and we're soaking it all up. Last time I was at Concord was about 60 years ago and I went under the bridge in a canoe with my father. This time I drew some water from the down stream side to bring back to Maine and some to Bennington next weekend.

Today is our 46th wedding anniversary and this is how we spent it; on the Appleseed Trail.
Our history is not a list of dates and places. It is a dynamic adventure of freedom and individual courage.
