Wisconsin's SB crew jumps by one!
« on: September 13, 2010, 09:37:43 AM »
***Raise your beer glass and pass the cheese curds.***

The MN Appleseed gang would like to take this opportunity announce that MARTIN has completed all requirements to wear the Green Hat!

Huzzah! Huzzah! Huzzah!

Congratulations Martin!

Even with a few curves thrown at him, he managed to pull off a great final SBIT Appleseed.

Congrats Martin!!!!!!!!

Martin will be a great asset to both Wisconsin and Minnesota!




...............but I know the real truth!   Martin has a secret............................................a secret to his success! :cool2:


You see,  Martin's wife Joann (RustyRed on the forum) is a blue hat volunteer who comes with him to all he shoots.  She really works hard "behind the scenes" getting things organized at shoots.  She is also good at keeping a watchful eye for stray dogs who may run on the firing line while shooters fill the red coat targets wih holes!

I know Martin will wear that Green Hat with pride and will bring years of knowledge, wisdom, and passion to every shoot! :bow:
It will be hard to stop Martin and Joann.  They both have very large buckets that get heavy when full, but that won't slow them down!

This is VERY well deserved!  I look forward to working with you at shoots!!!! :---

Congratulations to Martin for his well earned and deserved promotion to SHOOT BOSS O0
"These are the times that try men's souls. The summer soldier and the sunshine patriot will, in this crisis, shrink from the service of their country; but he that stands it now, deserves the love and thanks of man and woman. Tyranny, like hell, is not easily conquered; yet we have this consolation with us, that the harder the conflict, the more glorious the triumph. What we obtain too cheap, we esteem too lightly: it is dearness only that gives everything its value."   T Paine

I would like to congrats Martin :) for a great job he has been doing with the appleseed project!!
Martin asked me one day to go with him to a shoot :~ I said ok I never shot a rifle befor and I thought I never would,so I went to Shiocton WI 2009 with him just to watch,it poured out not just rained, it poured both days, they shot in that,I really thought these guys were nuts  #)! Martin got close to a 210 but didnt make it :(,we went back for another shoot in Lodi WI in Oct 09 he got his Riflemen Patch,did not take the orange hat, due to we had to talk about it,I just watched again, this time I heard the History and all about appleseed,I really enjoyed it and this is where both our hearts are at, my mind was made up,he got ahold of Deacon,(thank you Deacon)and from that moment on is history! And for me I picked up my 1st Rifle went to a appleseed :---(just a all women shoot)this passed year I had the best time and now I go all the time to shoot or just to help out!! its a GREAT time!!No I have not gotten a Riflemen patch yet, but it sure is fun to keep on trying :---!!!
Come on All you GIRLS get out there and shoot :~!!! its fun :)!! you meet the best people ^:)^!!!
