Leadville, CO Shoot August 27-28 2011
« on: December 30, 2010, 10:17:05 PM »
We got it approved.  O0 BF and I will SB it so make plans if you want.
I will get this listed on the EIF soon but here is a quick heads up:

They have a gun show on Aug. 5,6,7 during their Leadville Boom Days where I am working on getting us a free 501C3 table to promo the shoot.
Here is the latest correspondence I just got:

Dan,
Thanks so much for contacting the Leadville Rod and Gun Club about the Appleseed Project.  We have tentatively scheduled the weekend of August 27 and 28, 2011 for the event.  We have acknowledge all of the clubs comitments listed below.  We have a 30 yard pistol pit and a 100 yd rifle range that may work well.  We do NOT have the best of facilities for camping.  We do have a parking area with electrical outlets that have worked for travel trailers.  We will solidify issues as the date draws nearer.
Thanks,
Ron Valentine

I'll signup when it gets on the schedule. It will be good to breathe some of that oxygen-free air.

We've got 501-c(3) status for 7th-Stepping at a three day gun show, where there's a local Appleseed event three weeks later, all in a place where we've never been?

Outstanding. This is the kind of vision, planning, and hard work that allows us to maintain exponential growth.

Thanks for doing the work, TG and whoever else. Such posts are inspiring.

We are definitely on for the Leadville August 27-28 shoot. 

We have 4 instructors who will be up there this weekend to man the table the Leadville Rod & Gun Club provided free of charge at their annual gun show. This is held during the town's Boom Days celebration. They have 1200-1600 people attend the gun show.

If you'd like to attend the highest altitude shoot in the nation (10,102 feet) and don't mind gasping for breath, info and registration can be found at http://appleseedinfo.org/smf/index.php?topic=22848.0

We have plenty of enthusiastic Colorado instructors who will be running this shoot.

My luck!  I just stumbled upon Appleseed and love the concept.  Already signed up for a five year membership in RWVA and then went looking for my first event to attend.  Would LOVE to make the Leadville event, but no way I can swing that with no time to prepare and only half of what I need.  Drats!

So my goal is to get to either Byers or Fountain in September.

Dutch:

Do attend a shoot soon.  We'd love to have you. The Leadville event was FABULOUS! Watch for the After Action Report.
