Maryland Needs MORE Appleseed Ranges
« on: January 25, 2012, 06:02:25 PM »
OK, so Appleseed has been going strong in Maryland for nearly TWO years.
With one exception (a Boy Scout camp), no other Maryland ranges have opened their doors to the Appleseed, YET... That's where YOU come in...

If you're a member of a Maryland/ NoVA/ DE or Eastern WV club, we need YOUR help to get us in the door, and guide us thru whatever hoops we need to jump thru, to make Appleseed a reality in YOUR club! Cold calling obviously isn't cutting it, and we gotta GROW this program, NOW...

Don't want to drive to Annapolis? Don't want to do a rimfire only Appleseed? Well, do something about it!. Get us in the door to YOUR club..

Drop me an email or PM, and let's get started folks.. It isn't a tough thing to do..it just takes YOUR resolve to assist in the process... We need at least 3 other clubs on board this year and more into perpetuity...

The clock is ticking...

BeSwift,

I don't think my range will allow an Appleseed for an entire weekend.  What's the least number of lanes we could use for an Appleseed; 8-9?

Have You given this range a try?  http://associatedgunclubs.org/index.html

At one time I was a member of the Westinghouse Rifle and Pistol Club, We used this range, Nice place. the Westinghouse club is now-Westinghouse Electric Corp or ESSS Northrop Grumman Corp.

Use the list of Associated clubs as an in. If You think it would help I will call the current Westinghouse club President, and seventh step Him for You. PM Me if You want Me too.

I have a corporate membership at Blue Ridge Arsenal in Chantilly, VA. They have 24 indoor 25-yard lanes, half for rifle and half for pistol. But they are usually packed during the weekends, so I doubt they'd donate the range time for a whole weekend.

I presume we've approached OnTarget in Annapolis Junction already?
