Not sure who all is coming, but pre-reg has 16/50 listed so far.  Pre-reg usually goes up a bit in the week before the event.  Looks like you're on pace to at least half-fill the line.

Ofart here looking for folks who are coming to the Appleseed near Atlanta, TX (About 30 miles SW of Texarkana) on October 2 - 3. We're trying to round up enough folks to make it worthwhile for the landowner to host another shoot (or several ;) ).

Well,  I sure get the thing about being cooks, but I think I'm starting out as a cook's assistant.  I participated in the Sept. 18-19, 2010 AS with Scout & crew, and learnt that patience is still a virtue (of course, it was just Murphy's Law is my excuse and I'm sticking to it!!). I also leart that iron sights ain't all that bad even if you can't really see the full outline of the black. I see from earlier posts that I come close to being a bunk mate of didactic and LAbRat, as we all seem to hang our hats in Bastrop County.

Thanks for the update, Starfox! I'm also praying for cooler temps by then.

Hi there!  My sons and I attended the San Angelo AS this Sept 18 - 19 and had a blast.  It was my second, but the first one was several years ago.  The boys and I are energized and looking forward to being involved.  We are located in Fort Worth.  Our next event looks like it will be Davilla in October.

Welcome guys. Great to see everyone here. Remember to go to the Texas Newsletter website  http://appleseedinfo.org/smf/index.php?topic=11952.0  so you can sign up for the newsletter. We will be running a lot of info out of the newsletter in the next few weeks. This is a very exciting time for Texas as we are trying to do some things not done before by any state in Appleseed. I want you all to be a part of this.

In addition to the newsletter, we would like you all to get a twitter account and then follow Texas Appleseed and AppleseedRadio. These are the two major twitter accounts that you can follow to get updates on what is happening in Texas and also nationally and also to help spread the word of Appleseed. If you have a facebook account then we would like to make sure we get everyone linked on facebook as well.

Spitstickler and Aaron are working hard to develop a program where we can instantly be alerted to information on all of these accounts at once and also spread promotional material for Texas shoots using these venues. As we get this developed we will be presenting it to you and asking you to help us with this. Texas will be leading the way with the new technology we will be using and if it works out like we hope it will we will be spreading it to the rest of Appleseed, but it will not work unless you guys participate. So get cracking please. See you all on the trail.

First event last weekend Sept 25/26 at the Cawthon (College Station) location.

Next event will likely be in the Spring. I need to do a LOT of dry firing practice between now and then... Probably would not hurt to do more stretching so I can get into those sitting positions too!

Located in Huntsville and wish I had a place to shoot/practice that was closer to home.

DanT here, from Hood County (whenever I get back to Texas, that is).  Currently in Connecticut on a job & attending Appleseeds here as the occasion arises.  7th stepping every day, reading more history than I ever thought would interest me every night -- that gives me more to talk about the next day.

Hello, Brian here from San Antonio, Tx.
Attended my first Appleseed Shoot this past weekend in Davila at Scout's place and loved every minute of it! Although the rifle I brought had a tainted front sight, Mark was nice enough to lend me his Marlin 795 to complete the instruction. Although I didn't earn my patch this weekend, I walked away with a new perspective on shooting, safety, and appreciation for our 2nd Ammendment rights. Thank you to everyone who made the weekend great and I look forward to coming back to earn that patch and improve my shooting performance!
-Brian.

Tailpipe here!  Joined up in Davilla this past weekend, and became in instant supporter of the Appleseed Project! I received top notch instruction on the firing line, and best of all, the usual down home Texas hospitality! After shooting for 2 days, I did not join the ranks of Rifleman, but am not discouraged, and will be back soon to Scout's place again! What a family!  O0

A Cherokee Legend
An old Cherokee is teaching his grandson about life. "A fight is going on inside me," he said to the boy.
"It is a terrible fight and it is between two wolves. One is evil - he is anger, envy, sorrow, regret, greed, arrogance, self-pity, guilt, resentment, inferiority, lies, false pride, superiority, and ego." He continued, "The other is good - he is joy, peace, love, hope, serenity, humility, kindness, benevolence, empathy, generosity, truth, compassion, and faith. The same fight is going on inside you - and inside every other person, too."
The grandson thought about it for a minute and then asked his grandfather, "Which wolf will win?"
The old Cherokee simply replied, "The one you feed."


I am here. I have always been here. April 19,2010, I stood, sat, and layed by the well and I drank from the well. The nourishment refreshed and revitalized my soul and gave strength and new resolve to the good wolve. The Purple Patch serves  as my reminder of that day. Like the wild horses and the buffaloe, I have returned to the well, as I shall again. May the Great Spirit shine upon us all till we meet again.
A moral compass provides a basis for making decisions; an action is good or bad, right or wrong when viewed in the light of the individual's moral bearing. If no moral compass exists for the individual, then decisions and actions are made on the basis of purely subjective thoughts. This leads to "If it makes me happy, or makes me feel good, or if it's something I simply want to do, then it is right and good."

Okay, now that my voice is warmed up......

I would like to thank all of the instructors that put up with me and all my groaning last week at boot camp.

I have been sharing the Appleseed program with just about everyone I have seen this week.

My son (Michael,now 15.....the one of us 2 that came home with a Rifleman's Patch) has been walking through the house yelling out line commands.

He just happens to yell out "Your preparation time has now ended" as he passes the bathroom with his sister in there primping.

I had been saying for quite a while that I would never spend "x" for a 10/22, cause a Marlin 60 works just fine. Traded a shotgun for one yesterday.  Who's goin ta Davilla Dec. 18??????????????????????????????????????????

Hello there Russell,

I am very happy to hear you and Micheal had a good time and learned much about the beginnings of our great Republic and rifle marksmanship.

Marksmanship and the history of our Republic's beginnings that helped to build the principles on which it was founded go hand in hand.

Therefore, it is up to all of us to ensure it is preserved and passed on to our future generations or it will certainly be lost.  Future generations of Americans will be gelded of what their potential could be in life should Americans forget the history of their Republic.

Your son, Micheal, he is certainly one of the smartest and respectful youngmen that I have Instructed with RWVA/Appleseed.

Micheal was in my "how to Instruct" group session during the Friday part of RBC, as you know.

He blew me away with his knowledge gained but within a week and had never attended an Appleseed event before.  He listened to instruction, shot expert, and can also do a very good job at repeating instruction we need on the Appleseed firing line.

He was not exactly perfect per verbatim(this takes time by being boots on the ground on the line), but his motivation and knowledge tells me he's above and beyond most folks his age and most adults.

Of course, this does reflect on you as well, Russell.  One can always judge a tree by its fruit.

Meeting yourself and your son was a pleasure.  Such an experience that you've both enjoyed and have learned makes every RWVA Instructors time spent PAID forth more than you can possibly imagine, more than fiat paper money, more even than gold or diamonds.........it is simply priceless.


Indeed, DAVILLA 11-10!!!

Don't forget to look at the RBC after action report and pics..........if anyone has more pics....post'em if ya want to  :

Mike from Houston here.

I attended my first Appleseed shoot this weekend in F'burg (12/4 - 5).  What a great experience! 

I've done many shoot n' scoot courses with carbine and pistol, but this was the first time I was able to have someone instruct me on the true fundamentals of shooting.  I'm here to tell you, that instruction worked.  Thanks to the outstanding work from RainmanJS as shoot boss, great instruction from dragit and helpful pointers from Mark & Mark acting as orange hats at the shoot, I was able to qualify as Rifleman.  I will wear that patch with pride and will keep the challenge coin I was presented with on me at all times.

The work y'all do is truly inspiring.  So inspiring in fact that I'm really thinking seriously about taking up dragit's challenge to pay it forward by becoming an IIT.  By doing so, I can support a cause I believe in at my very core, and by helping others, I can't help but improve myself.

Thanks to all the folks that make this opportunity possible.  I hope to join your ranks before too long, and will continue to attend shoots and spread the good word about Appleseed.

Mike,
 We could use another orange hat down in Houston. We are trying to find a range there this next year in 2011. Starfox and I say "there is nothing else like the company of fellow rifleman." You find great people in the instructor group. Send me a PM if you want more details about the program.

Wolf,
 We have several opportunities for you. You can join the program and help out, Scout needs help with the radio show or be apart of our national teams. We also have rifleman boot camps that test your skills at known distance or you could attend a known distance Appleseed. We would love to have more help in the instructor group if you would like to take up an orange hat. Just send me a PM if your interested.

Wolf, Two Wolves here. Congratulations---RIFLEMAN---. I hope you have read my first  post as it will help you understand what I'm about to say.   The Appleseed challenge to becoming a Rifleman really exemplifies the continuous battle of the good wolf vs. the evil wolf. When you attended your first Appleseed shoot, you were given food and nourishment for your good wolf inside you and it was tasty and the good wolf ate well and wanted more. This is evident by your perseverance and your desire for more. There are many ways to feed  the good wolf and one of the most potent and powerful is to stay as active in Appleseed as you can. Turn the good wolf loose so that he may lead others to this Bounty. For me--I feed my good wolf by helping to set up the firing line prior to a shoot,and providing canopies and mowing and giving encouragement and friendship to the shooters at these events in hopes that they too will win that battle that goes on inside them. Many people will tell you that your job is not done, but I will tell you to just feed your good wolf and he will lead the way.

Mike,
Good to hear of another Houston IIT. I'm near Sealy. PM me if you're interested in shooting at my place sometime. I'll also be at College Station this weekend. So far it's the closest range for the Houston area. Hope to see you.

Good to see you here Thomas; your next step is to take the orange hat.  Join us as an instructor.  Come to the next Appleseed you can make, there's one this coming weekend in San Angelo, next weekend in Davilla and step up.  Ask for the orange hat, we'll put you to work.  We can use the help.
Looking forward to seeing you again, soon.

My best advice is to help the program grow.  We need to reach our fellow Americans and spread the heritage. You can do this many ways:  By talking up Appleseed, by bringing relatives, friends, neighbors, etc to an event, or by helping out in those thankless tasks like manning gun shows, or helping out with the organizational details of Appleseed.

The ultimate path is to take up the Orange Hat and become an IIT.  This is not something to be taken lightly however. We expect a lot of our instructors at all levels.  Travel, commitment of time, and being willing to learn and advance through the instructor levels.  Minimally we would like 4 shoots a year of our instructors with the nominal expectation being 4-6.  Some do more depending on their unique circumstances.  It is big commitment, but one that pays for itself in seeing your fellow Americans come alive to their heritage and to see shooters get excited at seeing their marksmanship improve.   Honestly, there's no money in being an instructor, but the benefits of working the Trail and connecting with fellow Americans at all levels is massively rewarding.  It is why the instructors do this job. 

We also need ranges, both public and private, you can help Appleseed grow by securing new host ranges.  There are so many ways to help this great organization and our vital Mission in saving this great Republic.  Think long and hard on what path best fits for you.  The base goal is to help our program grow, and there are a myriad of ways to accomplish this.  We would be thankful for any effort you can give to accomplish the Mission.

I will say, I have been privileged to meet and know some of the finest people on the Trail.  Truly, there is no better company than that of your fellow Riflemen!
