Two new orange hats
« on: April 29, 2012, 10:52:05 PM »
I am pleased to announce that the Appleseed program has two new orange hats after this weekend in Smyrna, Tn. Regan, Arwen on the forum, was presented her orange hat by TnColonel first thing Saturday morning. She shot 227 last August but did not turn 13 until last month.


Also, Sunday afternoon her mom, Jill, shot a Rifleman score of 222 and was presented her Rifleman patch by me. This was her 5th shoot and proof that a Rifleman persists. She also asked for an orange hat and was presented with one at the benediction.

Congrats Jill & Regan!  I was honored to be instructing at Manchester when Ben and his family came up.  Ben and Regan shot RM that day and Jill wasn't that far behind them.  Ben and his family are a great boon for AS.  Ben has his own range down in northern GA that hosts AS and comes up here to help TN out. 

Hats off to Ben and his family! ^:)^ ^:)^ ^:)^

Shaftoe, that's great picture of you. You must have a good photographer on staff.  ;D


Thanks everyone. We are now a family of riflemen. Time to start working on my older kids and grandkids. You will definitely see us on the Appleseed trail, most notably here in Rising Fawn on May 12 - 13. Give mom the gift that she can really use one day. Bring her to an Appleseed event on Mother's day weekend.  ;D

Congratulations to Arwen and Jill.  We look forward to working with them in the future as it has been a pleasure to work with them in the past.
It is certain, I think, that the best government is the one that governs least. But there is a much-neglected corollary: the best citizen is the one who least needs governing. The answer to big government is not private freedom, but private responsibility.

--Wendell Berry, "The Loss of the Future" in The Long-Legged House  (1969)

The problem is not Democrats.  The problem is Republicans who lack the intellectual clarity to become libertarians and libertarians who lack the physical discipline to become riflemen.  ---Kenneth Royce

You may reach Jill on the forum at writeOnTarget. To my dismay she did not want to be MrsWreck or any combination of anything that implies any link to Georgia Tech. Must be because she's a Georgia grad. She teaches writing and the writeOnTarget fits. (I came up with that one too)  ;D
