AAR: Colfax, WI June 2-3, 2012
« on: June 02, 2012, 09:38:15 PM »
It was a glorious day one for an Appleseed at  the Colfax Sportsmen club in Colfax, WI.    15 shooters showed up to the fill the line on a day where we had perfect weather for shooting.  80 degrees, sunny and no bugs.  You just can't ask for better shooting conditions.  We had one brand new rifleman on the first AQT with a 210 and then we managed to squeeze in a second AQT where a returning rifleman manage to re-qualify.  Instructor "TheDud" came in from Duluth to visit our Wisconsin crew.  Lets see some pictures!

Day Two at Colfax - Another wonderful day at the range.   We had 12 returning shooters and one new shooter.

Tony shot earned his patch today and cleared the red coat.  And then there was the rifle family.  Machelle, Ben and Tom all earned their patches.  Our designated sniper who is the youngest member of the rifle family, also cleared his red coat at the end of the day.  I suspect that Karen will be back so that she can earn her patch.

Many thanks to our range hosts, Peggy and George.  They are great supporters of Appleseed and Peggy provided us with another great lunch today.

Wow ,, what a great weekend!You couldn't ask for better weather and wonderful students!

Thanks to the Colfax Sportsman Club for partnering with Appleseed.  After speaking to the club president, it's obvious that they are working hard to keep their club a success.

Thanks to my fellow instructors, Crash, TheDud, Rustyred, and Wisconsin's newest Redhat,,,,,,,Zamboni_Driver.   Congratulations and well done Paul!

I'm sure RustyRed will have some picture shortly.

Great work Wisconsin!

Looks like it was a bit too nice out for my comfort level but I wish I could have been there!
Any group of shooters who can put up with Crash all weekend is a special breed of Appleseeders.  ;)

Congratulations Riflemen!  And way to go Zamboni!

Hey Dud, I've got to ask:  Do I consider this a border raid or defection?  ::)


I'll be back, WI...  I'll be back! >:D

They ARE a lot nicer in WI, and there are fewer ticks!  Plus, Martin is looking for a grandson to leave all his Garands to.... O0
