Instructor Boot Camp, Feb. 18-19, 2012
« on: December 30, 2011, 01:54:51 PM »
Fellow Appleseeders,

It is my pleasure and honor to inform you, on behalf of our State Coordinator Friedenmeister, that Georgia will host an Instructor Boot Camp at Pinetucky Gun Club in Augusta, Georgia on the weekend of Feb. 18-19, 2012. PHenry has graciously agreed to come up from Florida along with ITSanSKS and to run the event. It is gratefully appreciated, since Florida is scheduled to have some 50 Appleseed weekend events in 2012, and ITSanSKS is in the process of relocating to Alaska. For those of you who are familiar with them, they are two of the ablest and most dedicated instructors in the country. After ITSanSKS leaves to go to Alaska early this spring, we will not have another convenient chance to work with him, and PHenry will have his hands full in Florida getting the Florida events staffed without the help of ITSanSKS.

There are several reasons to attend the IBC. One is to become the very best instructors we can be. There will be a heavy emphasis on Simplicity and Precision, and those who have instructed with OldFudd or me know how essential these two factors are in running the accelerated, or hybrid, AS format. Second, we will have a chance to ask questions in a small group atmosphere of two of the best rifle marksmanship instructors in the country. Third is that it will give us a rare opportunity to develop our own in-state Senior Instructor-IBC/RBC. With this capability, we can have our own, geographically convenient IBC, RBC, and instructor-only Known Distance Clinic program. At present, we all have to travel a long distance in order to attend these advanced education events. In the future, we can have these right here in Georgia. The construction of the new long-distance Appleseed-friendly venue at Rising Fawn makes this a very real and fairly convenient addition to our Georgia Appleseed program. Last, this upcoming IBC will allow us to enjoy the company of some of the finest people in the world, fellow Appleseed instructors, in a small and pleasant atmosphere.

Please make every effort to attend. Your attendance is highly encouraged and most appreciated. If there are some who may be deterred by the registration fee, please contact me before you make any final decision. We want to get as many as possible to participate. I look forward to seeing all of you soon on the Appleseed "trail".

In Liberty,

DrJohn

This is great news DrJohn!
 
I have three OH's ready to sign up as soon as we can!
 
What a great opportunity this is to improve our skills as instructors. I agree, this will be some of the finest people gathered together. Especially if that company includes you and OldFudd. I can't remember if I met ITSanSKS or if it was PHenry at my first AS in Toccoa (maybe both?) when you were the SB. That event definitely elevated my interest and enthusiasm for our forefather's fight for liberty. I do not want to miss an opportunity to attend an event that they are hosting. We are marking our calendars.

Thank you, and Friedenmeister, for all you do for GA and our country.

"Darkness is returning to Paradise. Are you ready?" Johnny Drake

"From the desert has come a voice crying in the wilderness, and his name is John. Johnny Drake to be more precise. But ask his disciples and they will tell you his mission is no less defined than the mission of John the Baptist, who first introduced the Light from heaven to the world over two thousand years ago. The multitudes listened to John, who told them that Jesus of Nazareth was the Way to God. Then Herod toke John's head.
  Now the question begs us: Will the world listen to Johnny Drake? And who will take his head?"   Quote from the book, "Sinner" by Ted Dekker

All,
We did an AS at this range last weekend and it is a wonderful facility with a huge meeting room. Let's try to fill it up.


Hope to see you there.
