It's Official - First Appleseed In Hawaii!
« on: May 25, 2011, 12:19:24 PM »
OK folks, we just got the Host Application for our first Hawaii Appleseed. It will be held on Aug 20-21, 2011 at the Big Island Gun Club. It looks like Fred will be running this one. The pre-registration page should be up shortly. There are 20 spots available, so make sure you reserve yours!
If ye love wealth better than liberty,the tranquility of servitude better than the animating contest of freedom,go home from us.We ask not your counsels or arms.Crouch down and lick the hands which feed you.May your chains set lightly upon you and may posterity forget that ye were our countrymen.

Awesome! Don't suppose I could get travel expenses paid?
The doorway to freedom is framed by the muskets that stood between a vision of of liberty and absolute anarchy at a place called Concord Bridge--Charlton Heston, 1997

"Be a man of principle. Fight for what you believe in. Keep your word. Live with integrity. Be brave. Believe in something bigger than yourself. Serve your country. Teach. Mentor. Give something back to society. Lead from the front. Conquer your fears. Be a good friend. Be humble and be self-confident. Appreciate your friends and family. Be a leader and not a follower. Be valorous on the field of battle. And take responsibility for your actions. Never forget those that were killed. And never let rest those that killed them." -- Major Douglas Zembiec

I hear Deacon has family out there.  Will direct him to this so he can help spread the word.

"Folks, this Appleseed thing doesn't work if we get a patch and go home. It doesn't work if we shoot a Rifleman score and remember the good times we had out on the range. It only works if we take that 7th Step and spread the 'seed. HUZZAH!!!"  Slim
