Oregon 2011 Appleseeds?
« on: March 03, 2011, 07:48:40 PM »
Hey folks, any news?

It's almost quit raining for the year and the schedule isn't up?   ???

I'm itching to get out there again.   ;D

I'm glad to see there are folks raring to go to an Appleseed event in Oregon.  At present there are no events scheduled in Oregon, but please take a look at the Appleseed map.  Click on any state nearest you to view the events on that state's schedule. You just might find an event closer to you than you think.

Drive time is a real consideration for me. Has there been any thought about having shoots at Eagle Creek or Estacada again?

To get a shoot scheduled, someone has to go to the club and get a date. That is best handled by someone close by who is intersted in seeing an appleseed happen.
If the person who did it last time does not schedule another shoot, our best hope is that another person will step up.
Ranges are usually willing to schedule another shoot once the "ice" has been broken.
Takai, can you go to the range and make arrangements? Every thing needed but the face to face contact is available on this web site.

If I'm not mistaken Eagle Creek is the same as Estacada.  There were a number of Appleseed events held there last year.  It has yet to be determined if there will be events held there again this year.

Right now the closest AS is some 4-5 hours drive.  That's a long way to haul 2 kids on a school weekend - and yes, both my kids want to go this time.

There is one in Bickleton, WA which is only 2 hours from Portland....maybe that one is closer.  It's on Apr. 9,10th.  Hope that helps!

I am about 3.25 hours from Estacada/Eagle Creek. Bickleton is almost 6 away. So that one probably won't happen for me.

Is there a range near you? Appleseed will come to any range willing to host.

This is Roseburg. Pretty much a redneck town. Their are several ranges in the area but, since I only moved here a couple months ago I haven't had time to check them out. I will have to look into that. I wasn't sure that I had enough people in the area that would be interested.

How many people does AS need to make it worth the time and effort it takes to run a shoot?

OK, we have an invitation for future Appleseed events from Emerald Empire Gun Club in Marcola (just outside Springfield and near Eugene).

I have a positive reception from the board, I have the paperwork that needs to be filled out.

Can someone from the Appleseed folks contact me directly (via email at yan (at) seiner.com) so we can get this moving forward?

Thanks!

cptdondo,

I'd be glad to give you a hand on this. You can e-mail at ID@appleseedinfo.com and we'll see if we can get this rolling along.

Best regards,

I pass through the Eugene area on a regular basis and can meet with Emerald Empire board to try and arrange dates for an Appleseed.

RR, please send me a copy of the completed paperwork and I will see what can be arranged.

Prescott (or any other Appleseed instructor):

Will you be around Eugene on the evening of the 18th?  I have a presentation to the Board of Emerald Empire Gun Club for AS events.  I'm sure they will have questions about course of fire, safety, and certification of staff.  It would be nice to have an AS instructor around to explain the program.

Takai, If you can get something set up near Roseburg, I'll do my best to get my Father to go...
I just finished my first Appleseed shoot out in Colorado, and was telling my Father all about it.  He lives between Grants Pass and Roseburg, and I think if it was close, he would give it a try.   O0

Keep your eyes peeled.   ^:)^

Looks like we'll get an Appleseed in Eugene in July and September.  Stay tuned.

Work has kept me buried that last few months, so this is good news. Eugene is definitely a lot closer than the alternatives.
