2012 shoot schedule planning thread
« on: October 17, 2012, 11:35:29 AM »
First off - to reiterate, I've resigned as State Coordinator and I'll probably not be acting as an SB or Instructor until sometime next summer.

However, to help our Regional Coordinator, VietVet, out, I've put together a tentative schedule (depending on approval of Leyden Rifle Club (Harvard has already confirmed)) below. I've cc'd the MA shoot bosses, active & inactive, already, so they know what is coming up for next year.

Harvard Sportsman's Club - February 16-17 (Winterseed!! Shoot in the snow and ice! If we have any snow and ice this winter, that is...)

Harvard Sportsman's Club - April 20-21 (big one - Patriot's Day weekend)
Leyden Rifle Club - April 20-21 (big one - Patriot's Day weekend - if we can get through all the snow and mud up to the range that early in the spring!)

Leyden Rifle Club - May 11-12

Harvard Sportsman's Club - June 1-2 - don't depend on this one - just found out about a conflict at HSC. Dwarven1 11/1/12
Harvard Sportsman's Club - June 29-30

Leyden Rifle Club - July 13-14

Harvard Sportsman's Club - August 3-4

Harvard Sportsman's Club - September 14-15
Leyden Rifle Club - September 28-29

Harvard Sportsman's Club - October 19-20

Leyden Rifle Club - November 2/3 (this is opposite NorthEastShooter's Pumpkin Blast... again.)

Note - this is a pretty aggressive schedule, given that we've had a bit of attrition on shoot bosses (me, crak & Mike93LX) and instructors. But there are a bunch of new folks on line, so I think it's doable.

Mansfield Fish & Game and Sippican Rod & Gun is not on this yet - I'll try and see if we can get a shoot in each of those sometime time in the summer next year, though.

Instructors & IITs - if you've got an idea for another club, go and see if you can get them lined up for next year! We really could use another club in addition to the ever-loyal Leyden Rifle Club out west - maybe Lee Sportsman's? Nenamasek in Ware? Where do YOU shoot?

Unhappy it is ... to reflect that a brother's sword has been sheathed in a brother's breast, and that the once happy and peaceful plains of America are either to be drenched with blood or inhabited by slaves. Sad alternative! But can a virtuous man hesitate in his choice?

The Leyden Rifle Clubs Fall meeting approved 5 dates for next year.

April 20-21 contingent on being able to get to the range

May 11-12

July 13-14

Sept. 14-15

Nov. 2-3

The April date will be a week before the spring work-be so we'll just have to take what we find.

It was also gratifying, during the meeting, that when discussions with the local planning board  came up. Appleseed was a non-negotiable subject. O0
