This one's on the pistol range. We have another one in June on the Rifle Range. No April 19th shoot there this year.  :-\ But have no fear, we're working on getting two April 19th shoots in Chaplin and Colebrook. Stay tuned.

Signed up to RH - SB or not to be determined. Updated my Google AS calendar with this event, plus added tentative April 19th slots for Colebrook and Chaplin.

I'll be signing up as an IIT4. Instructor Scheduling is only 20 feet from where I sit. Wife is North Country Lady and she's also a Volunteer Shoot Admin. She sure likes her pink RWVA hat. She has been Shoot Admin at Columbia, Maine and Bennington, VT. Unless you already have a Volunteer Shoot Admin you can put her down. She's also an Adaptive Appleseeder.

(Edited to add; Crak tells me I'm an IIT4.)

OG --

Glad to have you and your better half! We've never had a Shoot Admin before - guess I need to read up on what that entails. But it sounds full of crunchy goodness...

What? You don't have Volunteer Shoot Admins in CT? She shows up with a full size camper and serves coffee to instructors too.

The short story;

Assemble hand-out packets from shoot box
Check people in.
Check for hearing protection for EVERYBODY
Get signed releases from EVERYBODY including spectators and press
Issue chamber flag AFTER they have paid
Issue T-shirts AFTER they have paid
Hand out stuff
Check in late arrivals
Audit the money
Keep track of shots fired all day
Monitor scores
Report results

It frees up the SB to do real SB stuff.

You can tell which is our camper. It's the one with the Appleseed sticker on the rear ramp and the entry door and it's probably flying Commodore Ezek Hopkins' battle flag from the Battle of Machias, Maine.

Reached out to North Country Lady in a PM to make sure we honor her volunteer efforts and provide everything she needs to help make this shoot a success. We're rolling out the red carpet, CT Crew - this is a gift from heaven, and I'd really like to see a packed house for this shoot. Let's get the promo machine ramped up!!

We'll be there, but this is scheduled for March 12. Up here that is winter. Whether we show up with the camper or not depends on whether we can dig it out a few days prior. We could be hitting a local motel.

BTW, Buzzworth liked it at Bennington.

If your girls do these things at Hartford, let them continue with what they do. Never discourage a volunteer. We won't be offended at all.

OK, we are 24 days out from the shoot. There are zero shooters signed up on the instructor board. What's up?

We'll get there. The pre-registration thread seems to lag behind the Eventbrite numbers, although I just checked Eventbrite and there are still 20 slots left for Hartford. We had a good promo event at Cabela's two weekends back, and we made a lot of good contacts, so I expect the numbers to climb soon.

We typically see a lot of last minute registrations - we're less than two weeks out of the Colebrook shoot (Feb 26-27), and we were stuck at one pre-reg for the longest time. We're up to six, according to Eventbrite, and I have promises for at least one more and strong possibilities on four or five more. A good turnout for that shoot should help Hartford, since we usually get "almost-Rifleman" shooters that came close and want to try again right away - that's what I did after my first shoot.

Eventbrite says we've got the first two pre-registrations! We're still three weeks out, so keep the faith. And keep up the Seventh Stepping.

At less than two weeks out the instructor board still shows zero registered. Anybody have further word from Eventbrite?

Keep in mind, the Instructor Board does not provide real-time data for pre-registrations. The shooter cap for this event is 20. If you go to the Eventbrite link, it will say 18 tickets remaining which means Eventbrite has 2 registered as of now.

And I just got word that 2 others have recently switched registrations to Hartford, but the change has not been reflected yet.

Lastly, I myself have at least one shooter who is close to signing up.

I'm confident that we'll bring more shooters in the next few weeks with a concerted push from everyone. Hartford normally draws in shooters because of its location as well. And as we thaw out from all the snow in the next week, we may see more coming to the line.

But, in my view, it's just as much an Appleseed if there's only one student. It will all have been worth it if that one student becomes an instructor or tells 10, 20, 30 people about Appleseed. Just food for thought...

Hope this helps,
CJ

Any word on where they "switched" their registration 'from'?

It may have been Lebanon, Vernic. Not sure if it was this weekend's shoot or the one at the end of March.

It looks like Hartford is pretty well covered. By the end of this week I'll decide whether to switch to Lebanon.

OG - you're welcomed to join me at Lebanon - we already have 17 registered for the 3-26/27 shoot so we'll hopefully sell out - not to mention you can camp on site and it prolly looks a lot more like Maine in Lebanon than you'd think! O0

Yesterday we had 38 inches of snow on the ground and we got another 8 today so my camper won't be going anywhere on March 11. We'll be in a motel. A lot can happen between March 11 and March 25 so the camper could be a possibility for Lebanon. I have seen both sites on the map and I went by Lebanon the day the power plant blew up over a year ago.

OK; Sorry Hartford, but Lebanon has 17 shooters confirmed with Eventbrite. Wifey North Country Lady) is switching me to Lebanon. Maybe I'll come down to Hartford another time. For background info, Hartford is just as close to West Virginia as it is to my place out here in the woods. From my back yard to the next paved road is 42 miles through the woods. Most of our neighbors are moose and bear.
