Truly a glorious weekend for america,I can imagine the founders and john Adams enjoying the freedoms they achieved for our posterity  O0

Course when a state govt promotes patriot's day , we can only conclude you folks are men and women who truly know what they are about  O0

What a beautiful weekend to spend with some of the finest Americans this country can offer.  Thank you to everyone who took time out of their busy schedules to partake in some of our heritage and maybe even have some fun!

thanks for the kind words Infidel (and for sounding the alarm for Run and Gun, Parkers Revenge!)

Thanks to all the volunteers for putting on a great event! 

I didn't shoot as well as I'd hoped, but at least now I know what to work on. 

I spent another fifteen minutes tonight on my living room floor, NPOAing various objects across the room. 

I hope I can make it to another event soon!

What a GREAT 1st Appleseed. The instructors where awesome. Thanks Triggernick for supplying me with most of my equipment this weekend. I learned a great deal at this event not only in marksmanship but also some of the history of this country and the heritage of many of the great men/women who gave everything for our freedom today. I might not have shot Rifleman at this one, but I'm sure with a little practice and the knowledge I gained I will reach it next time.

Looks like a fun day at the beach!

Winnequah is just like a beach; without all that pesky water, isn't it!

Looks like it was another excellent Appleseed weekend!
Wish I could've been there - Guess I had prior obligations.  ^-^

Thanks to the Wiinnequah Club, special thanks to our instructors, who combined history and technique for a really enjoyable time. We all left shooting better!

It was Prom night, so we left a little early and no one was returning the next day! But we will be back for the June event, and we'll enjoy both days!

Thanks again to Dragonfly and all our instructors for your skill, preparation, and hard work.  Regards, Bill.
