Rifleman Mike ( in the blue jacket) and Tom.  Special thanks to Tom for hanging in there through multiple Appleseeds.  "What we obtain too cheap, we esteem too lightly."  Thomas Paine

I had a really good time instructing "up nort".  The students were fantastic as was our new host range.  Thank you all.

"These are the times that try men's souls. The summer soldier and the sunshine patriot will, in this crisis, shrink from the service of their country; but he that stands it now, deserves the love and thanks of man and woman. Tyranny, like hell, is not easily conquered; yet we have this consolation with us, that the harder the conflict, the more glorious the triumph. What we obtain too cheap, we esteem too lightly: it is dearness only that gives everything its value."   T Paine

This is a really nice range up in North East Wisconsin. Heated club house, 2 bathrooms(BTW both indoors  8)   ) covered line. After lunch on sunday we did KD clinic, and the shooters got to practice what they learned. 22 hitting steel at 100, and yes 200yds. from the same firing line.

We had a great time at the shoot!  Special thanks to Dragonfly & Colycat for the extra attention given to Liz.  She's a trooper and insisted on me wrapping her wrist with the ace bandage so that she could at least work on shrinking her groups on Sunday.  She wasn't staying home and missing the 2nd day for anything.  Looking forward to next year April and already have several family and friends that will probably attend as well.
