Gordon WI September 15-16, 2012
« on: September 17, 2012, 12:09:46 PM »
We were privileged to instruct a small but very talented group at our third Appleseed at the picturesque North Woods Rifle Range near Gordon, Wisconsin.

New Rifleman Mario a first time Appleseeder scored a 225. Jeremy and Matthew shot in the 200s, Laura had several AQTs in the 190s and Dean improved his best score to 187 from his best of 162 at Superior in July. Great work everyone. ^:)^ ^:)^ I expect to be awarding more Rifleman patches among this group next time we meet at Mason and/or Spooner because I know you are all coming back along with some friends.

We also ran several KD AQTs and although no one earned the KD Rifleman distinction the shooters resolve to do so in the future was apparent.

Thank you to my fellow instructors crash and boscohurn for another fantastic performance.  :bow: :bow:

Contrary to how it may appear, I don't actually enjoy being someone's Dedicated Pain in the Butt.....but sometimes it pays off    >:D.  In the end, you folks did all the shooting. 
Fine students, weather, range....just an overall fine weekend.
