What kind of person uses their amateur radio call sign as a forum handle?

Wait . . . oh . . . I did . . . 

Hold on - "Plan on making a Waco and / or a Ft. Worth shoot" - I'm at most of those events.  And . . . there's a William that lives in my house . . .

Are . . . are you me?  Are we the same person? **)

Okay, okay - all joking aside . . . Welcome! I'm Looking forward to meeting you at one of these events!  :F

Mike, you're always welcome at any of our Texas shoots.  Come spend a week of vacation visiting the family, and see who you can get to go with!   :snipersmi

Thanks for the welcome, and good to know there are other  :sos:  :snipersmi operators here as well. my June is looking full but will get out as soon as I can. my local ham club, youth 4H and Church events keep my weekends full, but I still manage a little range time for myself when I can.

Hello all, Marshall from South-central Texas checking in and looking to help out from time to time. I cut my teeth with Appleseed in Alice, Texas. This is a great group to get involved with.

Roguetom here from DFW.
Just atteded my 3rd Appleseed weekend in Waco with our Trail Life Troop 226 from Plano, TX.  It was a very well taught event that yielded 4 new Riflemen and several recertifications. Several also stepped up to take Orange hats.
BTW the Central Texas Rifle and Pistol Club
Is the nicest outdoor range I have ever been to.

Welcome Roguetom!  Sorry that I wasn't able to make that event, although I do make most of the Waco events.  Trail Life is a fantastic organization as well; I always enjoy time with those young men.  If that was your 3rd event there I wouldn't be too surprised if we've crossed paths in the past, & we probably will cross paths again in the future.

If you're in the DFW area, you might want to look at volunteering at the Quail Creek range March 9.  It's a 1-day event, & I'll be shoot-bossing it.  Currently we have all of 2 instructors  $$-0; you'd be very welcome to join us!

Hey yall!  I'm Ryan from Bandera County.  I just attended my first Appleseed shoot today (in San Antonio) and it was a total blast!  I haven't been this sore from having fun in a very long time.  I even made Rifleman (no one was more surprised by this accomplishment than I was) on the last AQT of the day.  I look forward to doing more Appleseed events and brining some friends along as well.

Ryan,

Welcome to the Appleseed family and congrats on earning your Rifleman patch!  We would love to see you at another event soon, so that you can build on your success and continue to improve.

Definitely bring friends and encourage those you know to bring their kids.  There's a Tippmann Appleseed rifle giveaway going on to encourage parents to shoot with their kids at Texas events.

I'm usually in Waco or DFW. Hope to see you on the line if you're ever up this way.

Regards,
NJrefugee

Good evening,
Checking in from south Texas.  Started with A-Lister in Alice and just did the KD with Ghostring, Palerider, A-lister, and others whose handles I do not know.  Had a great time and looking forward to more history, marksmanship, and fun in the future!
Thanks!

Welcome to the TX Instructor Cadre!

You're surrounded by some of the BEST instructors in Texas...listen well and learn quickly.  A-lister and Pale Rider can use the help!

Hey all -

It looks like it's been awhile since anyone posted in this thread, and since I am pretty lame at forums, I figured here was as a good a place as any to post.

Am a new Orange Hat (IIT) and am excited to get more involved in the program.   I am located just north of San Antonio in Bulverde.    Was looking to make the KD this weekend down the road near New Braunfels - but promised the wife I would take a few weekends to get the spring gardens ready.  :)

I am planning on attending the KD in May and then continuing the IIT fun at the Appleseed on April 24/25 in San Antonio.

In other news, am also an EMT-B, and a ham - KC5HUO.      I am an avid blackpowder/muzzleloader shooter, so the history aspects of Appleseed are right up my alley . . . .

From one ham to another, it's great to have you!  You're going to love the KD, & the New Braunfels range is a great one to run it.  I'm closer to the DFW area but I try to make one in the Spring & one in the Fall, so I may even see you there!
