I'm pretty sure I signed up for this, but never received a confirmation from Scheduling. I'm trying to bring a friend. No SB yet?

^ The Log is SB'ing this one. I'll probably be there as well. <yoda>A special day for you it may be, young padwan</yoda> (Edit: unless you plan to upgrade at Chaplin that, is.)

Shoot IS another PM to get on the official schedule.

Yeah, I'll probably upgrade at this event. I want to retire my Orange Hat Calverton-style.   :---

I hear LymiSeede will make an appearance as well. Sounds like we've got a good crew shaping up for this one. Quantity wise, that is - never any doubt about the quality of the CT crew, regardless of strength. Looks like all I need to do is enthrone myself and let the CT magic work.

And wait till you all get a load of my new and improved shoot box. It's the latest in shoot boss fashion - to die for. And it locks!!  @&) 

But in all seriousness - let's not have the instructors outnumber the shooters! If everyone on the crew brings just one person, we'll have this one sold out in no time. Personally, I'm working on a couple of folks from work. Let's please all make an extra effort to sell this one - not selling out a brand new club would be tough to take. :'(

Our new motto: "Haud magister veni solus." Oh my geeking gawd! Did he just do that?  :slap:

OK, now we're getting somewhere - seven sold, seven to go!  ^:)^

Keep up the good work and we'll have this one sold out before we get a chance to promo it at the Goshen Fair!

Nine down, five to go!  ^:)^

I'm making my pitch to three co-workers tomorrow. Hopefully we'll get a couple of father-son or father-daughter combos out of that and sell this one out.

Four slots left, and two weeks to go. Who's going to sell those final four? Remember - I'll triple the pay of any instructor who gets that final sale for another SELL OUT!!  :slap:

Almost there...

Only two slots left! Who's gonna sell them? I've about tapped out my prospects at work - everyone's got an excuse.

Sure, I know that shoots aren't selling out this year. But this is Connecticut - we sell out shoots!! Let's buck the trend and get this shoot sold. Don't make me use the Facilitator's Hammer on you  &)

Well, I whiffed today - I hit up three likely prospects at work and got shut down. One begged off because he hasn't been shooting in years, one is waiting for a divorce to finalize, and the other is busy with birthdays this month. What's that they say about excuses...?

The good news is I extracted promises to appear at a later date from the last two. One is even going to work on the missus to try to get her to let him take her daughter. She's never shot before - perfect! Get her before she develops any bad habits.

Anyone else having better luck? Still two slots left...

Just contacted the club president - all is in preparation and they're looking forward with excitement to hosting their first Appleseed! POI will go out to instructors by email on Wednesday or so.

If anyone else wants to get in on the fun, we could always use another Hat. Just make it right with IS and we'll see you bright and early on Saturday.
