Dear Siglite,

BeSwift and I are joining you Saturday. 

I'm working my way up, so should I prepare an IIT2PC for you (or demonstrate/recite the material)?

I'm asking now because it appears that we'll have alot to do Saturday, and I'm guessing you'll want to manage the time to maximize the benefit to the Students.

Thanks
Andy

For PC stuff, you'll need to remind me that you need to demonstrate things.  I expect this shoot to move like a whirlwind.  My focus is going to be nearly 100% on the safety of the line, due to the volume of youngsters.  If, for some reason, (and this goes for any IIT at this shoot turning in a PC) we fail to get in the needed demonstrations during the shoot, I'll be around and we can have you demo for the other instructors afterward.

As we get closer, an expected weather update prior would be a good thing..especially in the transition season  (70 and nice? or 20 deg with snow and wind? )   .... Thx   BeSwift
WX forecast for Nov 20:
As of today, the models look really good! Sunny on Saturday with a few clouds Sunday. Upper 50s/low 60s.
Update later in the week also....

I want to thank every single instructor that came to this shoot.  Many of you travelled, some of you quite a ways.  I'll talk about this more in the AARs, but each of you contributed significantly.  I can't tell you how glad I am that so many answered the call.  You guys got in your cars, drove for hours, brought piles of rifles, and because of your efforts, we had a great, and most importantly, safe shoot. 

I want my opinion on this to be crystal clear.  The instructor-to-student ratio made this shoot possible.  I think if we'd been short even one or two of you, we would have had significant safety issues. 

And in case you're wondering if it was worth it, you should be aware of this.  A couple of those home-school parents are in my facebook friends list.  When I arrived home and hopped on facebook, a significant thread was running in one of their statuses about this shoot.  They were absolutely RAVING about Appleseed. 

Thank you.  All of you.  You reached some Americans today.

Well, not to speak for Mac here, but one of the major purposes of his building the Liberty Range at PCGC, was to allow AS some flexibility on event scheduling there.  Soooo, I think we could take shameless advantage of that, and schedule one darn near any time we like.  So, I'm thinking I might just have to bounce that question back in your direction.   >:D  When are we doing this again?  :D

I think, as long as we have 60 days notice or so, we can have a nice solid instructor corps on hand to run the shoot. :)

I'm open to whenever.  It should be warm tho... they aren't the hardiest bunch. LOL  I know April is going to be a very busy month with the big shoot.  I'm not opposed to March (if you want to get people excited about the April and May events) but we still have the probability of funky weather. 
Tell me when's good and I'll do everything I can to help make it happen.

OH... and speaking of helping make it happen.  I stopped in a new gun store here close today.  It's called Herd Tactical and I talked to him about Appleseed.  He's familiar with it and wants literature for his counter!   Then he talked me into S&W AR .22.  LOL (:

Remember you will be shooting prone most of the time, so get the 10 round mags, and a sling attachment for front...

The owner has appeared in WVCDL land, too.  We'll get him some literature.

Very good point.  I didn't buy it... yet. (:  I may put it on time next month.

Get me a date before Thursday the 20th and I will get it on the PCGC calendar. Or any 3rd Thursday club meeting.
