Great Falls
« on: April 09, 2011, 12:33:58 PM »
Are there any Appleseed events scheduled or thinking of being scheduled in or around the Great Falls area? I have my folks who live there and that is where I grew up. It would be great to come visit them and do an AS. I am sure I could pull in my fiance and dad too. I haven't seen anything so I thought I would ask.

We will have a shoot scheduled at Boulder Sept 24-25 and possibly another in June.
No date has been scheduled for June yet.
We had a big conflict with the May date Bru listed and are working on the details.
Boulder is about 30 miles SW of Helena on I-15.
About 120 miles or so from Great Falls, Not that far in either Montana or Nevada point of veiw.
We are having a shoot in Three Forks this weekend April 9-10, and next weekend in Billings.
I would be glad to meet you.
Mark

Lol. That means that over 50% of our NV instructor crew are Montanans.  Epic **) **) **)
Would LOVE to make it up there and do a shoot. and RBC would be even better....

The land owner at Three Forks wants to host another Rifleman Boot Camp, this year would be the third.
Paid attendees need to be plentiful enough to pay a qualified instructor's travel expenses. Pretty tough up here where everyone "KNOWS" how to shoot.
UUHH, how come they can't clean the redcoat target?
The range is beautiful, panoramic veiws of green river bottems, snow capped peaks and rocky hills.

Western Rose,

The zip for the GFSSC is 59404. The flyer has it listed as 50404. I'm not sure if you can change it now.
