Breaking News!
E.Providence

Rhode Island's 1st Ever Appleseed will be held at Massosoit Gun Club in E. Providence on Saturday May, 21, 2011

Thanks to the efforts of noelephant who approached the Club's Board and to vernic82 who presented to them on Monday March, 21 with noelephant & davidgw1 assisting, this joint effort has resulted in Rhode Island's 1st Ever Appleseed.

Thanks also goes out the Massasoit's Board who received us very well and looks to be a very good partner of Project Appleseed as it grows in Rhode Island.

While the final details will be submitted by weeks end, this will be a 1-Day indoor shoot with 9 shooters.

Small yes, but a start for the Nations Smallest State which is no longer devoid of Project Appleseed's presence.

Yours in Liberty,

vernic82

OK, which states are still in the running?
They have men amongst them who know very well what they are about, having been employed as Rangers against the Indians and Canadians and this country being much covered with wood, and hilly, is very advantageous for their method of fighting. . . . ".  Lord Percy

Ah, but all it takes is one seed to be planted into a nice fruitful tree, yes? I have a good feeling this will be the start of something grand in RI.  :)

I competed there in 1967. Congrats Vernic82 and say Hi from an old pilot from the Quonset Point pistol team.
Our history is not a list of dates and places. It is a dynamic adventure of freedom and individual courage.

Well done, guys!!
Unhappy it is ... to reflect that a brother's sword has been sheathed in a brother's breast, and that the once happy and peaceful plains of America are either to be drenched with blood or inhabited by slaves. Sad alternative! But can a virtuous man hesitate in his choice?

Looks like I will be able to make this one unless something blows up at work. Hope to see everyone on Saturday!
