If the ground has thawed and dried enough there will be a raised dry firing line. The folks at Pleasant River in Columbia will give me a heads up and I'll bring my Kubota down there to grade the new line. The ground has to be firm enough that I don't tear up the grass with the Kubota. If it's too wet for April 16 it will be ready for the next one. Good group there at Columbia.

Just checked the weather forecast and looks like sunshine and temps in the mid seventies for the April shoot! If you believe that.....     ;)  Should be a good one guys, I've already spoken with a couple of guys who didn't make Rifleman in December who are planning on returning with grim determination to get the job done!

Good response to the April 16/17 event, anyone who is on the fence might want to sign up sooner rather than later!

Maine is bigger than the other 5 New England States together. Most of us have to go down to Pittsburg, NH. Asking what Maine is like would be like asking what Burlington, VT and Point Judith, RI are like and expecting the same answer. I'm driving to an Appleseed at Lebanon, CT this weekend. Lebanon is just as close to West Virginia as it is to me.
