Fred said "Since the idea is to build a solid dedicated CA group, I'd guess any qualified rifleman who's been to an Appleseed will be elegible for the rocker, the idea being to have as many "CALIFORNIA" rockers as we can get, walking around California on shooting jackets."

"Qualified Rifleman" meaning anybody that shoots a 210 or better on the AQT. That sounds good to me. Now lets get busy getting people to an Appleseed and get them qualified. 1000 rockers is a lot of Rifleman! And we gotta get rid of the first batch to order the second batch!

 You do not have to attend an RBC or An IBC to get a CA rocker. You have to attend a CA Appleseed and shoot a score of 210 or better on the QDAQT under regulation time. 8)



Even at having only to shoot a 210 or better under reg. time on the QDAQT, that is a high bar. KA, what are you thinking?  :o
The question now is do you have to shoot the score in California? Can you have attended a CA. Appleseed and made Rifleman in say AZ. or TN.? I figure this will come up sooner or later, might as well get it answered now.

While I'm not sure my two cents is even worth two cents, I vote you have to shoot a 210 in California.  8)

Full Disclosure: I have not yet shot a 210 anywhere on the planet.  :-[

    Man, thank heaven we have the equivalent of a Jesuit debating society here to soak up all that free time you should be out Appleseeding.

    If a shooter is from CA and gets qualified, he gets a rocker, is what I think Bob was saying.

    I think he was also saying that a shooter trained in California can, if he wants, get a CA rocker.

    But maybe we should only give out CA rockers to those who are out, everyday, working for Appleseed in California, and not in front of their computer, debating the finer details of who gets what, when...(this is meant in humor and good-naturedly, and no noses will be got out of joint in reading that statement, and that's an order!).

     The rockers are on the way. There's 24-hr aerial surveillance of the truck carrying them across the country - just like for those disputed ballots in Florida that were shipped from Miami up to Jacksonville in 2000. Yes sir, that's how important and eagerly awaited they are. I hope Bob 210 is ready with his riot control gear for when they arrive.
 
    If the devil was in me, I could post the tracking number, so everyone here to track the package themselves, and know exactly when and where it is to arrive... ;D ;D ;D

California spelled with a "C", right, not a "K".

Any of you ex-pats feel like coming home to fight the fight? Turn this around? Any takers?? :o 8)

Far be it from me, relatives......

Asked and answered, as they say....

So- like the man says, LETS GET BUSY.....

Those guys up in Washington State have 19 pre-reg via shameless promotion. Man.......That's almost a full line.
 ;D

Thanks for all the positive PM'S  and phone calls guys.

I will be starting a travelog about the upcoming journey to the IBC and AS up in Castle Rock Washington.

APPLE SEED NATION ROCKERS!

Hey- we are a NATIONAL program afterall.
Take a moment and remember the kind of man you chose to be when you got yourself out of that last scrape. Maybe you prayed that you would be different if he delivered you. Maybe you found hope here you thought unreachable. Do not concern yourself with anything 'els THAT. Make the mission first.

Now Fred, Some of my Appleseed work in California has to be done in front of the computer, so put that whip away.  ::)

Oh yeah, and just so you know, part of what made me want to go to an Appleseed and get involved was the stuff that was on the forum. Very important.

Now, how about those California Rockers. BIG NEWS!!!  (beat you to it JB!!  ;D)
