and also to our students that re-qualified   Belinda   214
                                                              Finn      230

What a great weekend, I took my Dad, who had never shot a rifle until three weeks before the shoot, at 73 years old he did a great job, closing in on rifleman.

The instructors Martin, Rusty Red, Zamboni Driver and Nate where fantastic  and set a great pace with much humor thrown in, just a wonderful time and wonderful people. It was Zamboni Drivers first time doing a strike and he did great.

I wanted to see if I was able to recreate my original rifleman score of 216 from last year and with the excellent instruction I was able to pull out a 230 and 231.  It appears the Appleseed rifle program really is world class congratulations to all the new riflemen that where forged this weekend you earned it.

Thanks again for the great time.

Finn

Hey Finn, it is always great to meet other instructors, come on back in the fall or at least send your dad, I'd love to help him score rifleman.
