It would be nice to attend but at this time being in upstate NY, it is too far from me.

Yes this is sure to be a grand event LittleMo, one NOT to be missed.  You need to team up with others in your area and car pool down!

I may be posting this to the wrong topic, but since this involves the Waterman 300 shoot I figured to post it here. If this is not the correct topic place to post this, feel free to move it to where it should be.

Appleseed Facebook users - a word of caution.
I received an email that I had a Facebook invite to the event Appleseed 300 Super Shoot. Text of the email:
"Frank Tobia invited you to the event Appleseed 300 SUPER-SHOOT!!
Appleseed 300 SUPER-SHOOT!!
Saturday, September 11 at 8:00am
Location: Waterman, IL
Are you attending?  Yes - No - Maybe
Thanks,
The Facebook Team

(If anyone would like to see the original email, PM me with your email addy and I'll forward it.)

I signed into Facebook to check out the event. The  event asks if I will be attending or not. There is also a place to share a comment. I wrote out a comment to "share" on that site, clicked "share", and was greeted by a message box that said my identity needed to be verified by a credit card number or my cell phone number. Huh? Needless to say I didn't provide that information and because I didn't, my message can't be shared unless this information is provided.

This can't be our Appleseed! Possibly someone is trying to scam by using the Appleseed name and this event to obtain people's credit card or cell phone numbers to rip folks off?  If this is a scammer and non-Appleseeders receive this, it would tarnish us.

To check this out, sign into Facebook first. The Facebook link is http://www.facebook.com/event.php?eid=136604146384636
If that link doesn't work, at your Facebook home page, do a search on "Appleseed 300 Super-Shoot".

Has anyone else received something like this on Facebook? Let me know if this isn't legit and I will report it to Facebook.

Gary

p.s. The message I was trying to share was...This should be a grand event! Meeting of so many Appleseeders; watching the faces of first-time Appleseeders as they "wake up" and realize they can make a difference; the sound of 300 rifles shooting at the same time! Not to mention, the instructors coordinating all the details and training all those shooters! It would be nice to attend but at this time being in upstate NY, it is too far from me.

Aftermath,

PM answered, and email sent.

Marksmanship can be taught and learned,

people to become involved.
How many have you inspired that became involved?

Hey all,

I spoke with one of my cousins this weekend and had him sign up but he will need to borrow a rifle (he's 20, never shot before but very interested).  I have a little cousin  (10 years old) that wants to go but his mom thinks its not safe/he's too young.  I think she will be much more comfortable talking to another woman regarding this issue - any moms on the forum she could speak with?

Thanks,

Steve

rayout,

I'd be more than happy to speak with his mom.  I'll be one of the women instructors at Waterman along with my two daughters.  Send her this link to watch: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kC9pTZEwEHc

PM coming your way.

TruT,

I was going to 'volunteer' you, but you were faster on the keyboard than I was.

Thanks!

Actually, HH, WR beat you.   :)   She saw this before I did and brought it to my attention.

I hope I get a chance to speak to her  @@)  and give her some peace-of-mind so the young lad can enjoy a day on the range with cousins.  This will be a shoot he'd not likely forget.

See you soon,

Thanks for calling my attention to this video.  I have forwarded it to my complete address book.  Good stuff!!! O0 O0

Sure thing, mountainman.

Here is another one my daughter, Western Rose, put together.  Maybe you'll want to forward it too.  It's touching in a different way than seeing the kids on the line in the other video, but very good and worth passing on.  The father and two sons that came to the CdA shoot this weekend may use these two videos in helping them show ranges in their area of Montana what Appleseed is about.  Maybe you sending them out to all those in your address book will be the visual aid and push they need to get them and their families off the couch and on the line.
