Wow is all i can say.  What an awesome bunch!  Thanks to the indianhead rifle pistol club for the facilities, and thanks to all our great students.  More to follow but the truck needs unloading!   :wb:
plus i need to see the bear ;-)

As the man says the Students made this weekend. Eleven on the line, six Riflemen and one within three points. As I told you Chad, I look forward to handing you that Rifleman patch myself very soon. Riflemen and their scores: Eric 230, Rob 234 (requalify), Morgan 226, TJ 222, Gale 233 and future Admiral (or General if he opts USMC) Luke 234. Nick, Zach and Josh: sorry you had to leave early for prom, I still think your dates would have had a fun time at our Appleseed. Nick, Zach, Josh and Nate: persist, this weekend was only the first of many steps in your journies to Rifleman. Congratulations to all for your hard work and persistence. You demonstrated how great a Patriots' Weekend in the North Woods could be. Remember all that this is the REAL holiday. If it weren't for April 19, 1775 and the Choices made that day, the fireworks holidays and department store sale holidays would just be another day on the calendar. Remember April 19, 1775 and honor it until your last April 19. I know that I will. See you all again soon.

Thank you Nate for your generous donation to the RWVA in addition to your RWVA membership.

Thank you BugginOut for stepping up and taking the Orange Hat.

Thank you Crash, boscohurn, BugginOut and Dicey for your time, dedication and enormous contributions to another successful Appleseed. Together we can save this Nation.

On to Barronett.
