(To moderator: If I shouldn't have posted here please move or re-move as you see fit.)

This just came in to the RWVA e-mail.

"Hello, while I have not (yet) participated in an Appleseed shoot, I look forward to doing so soon. I truly think your mission and program is superb.

"To that end I wanted to notify you about my "Tribute to Project Appleseed". I host a monthly handgun postal match online (www.postalmatch.blogspot.com) where shooters can all shoot the monthly match and challenge one another from across the country (and internationally too). It is an electronic upgrade to the traditional snail mail postal matches. This month's match is based on one of the Project Appleseed promo targets. My hope is that the participants in the postal match will also get interested in the Project Appleseed program. The following link is to the November match. http://postalmatch.blogspot.com/2010/11/november-2010-match-tribute-to-project.html"

This is really cool.  Do you think we should send him some targets?
"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

What a nation has done, a nation can aspire to.
Dr. Jerry Pournelle

Throughout history, poverty is the normal condition of man. Advances which permit this norm to be exceeded — here and there, now and then — are the work of an extremely small minority, frequently despised, often condemned, and almost always opposed by all right-thinking people. Whenever this tiny minority is kept from creating, or (as sometimes happens) is driven out of a society, the people then slip back into abject poverty.

This is known as "bad luck."
---Robert Anson Heinlein

Targets as a thank you or targets for the match?
Postal matches usually rely on targets they can print out themselves.

T-shirts as prizes would be great and maybe a sling for Dr. Stahlman as a thank you plus whatever EEL puts together.

Hey, the Adaptive Appleseed Program (A.AS) seems to have been left out!  These type matches may be of of interest to a number of our group, and various other folks that work within areas that open to, and will be opened shortly.

Can you send me the details?

Thanks,
Tom
