Anxiously waiting for the event to begin. This is yet another 'sold out' Lapeer event.

11/4/12 Update.  Who knew Sunday would be a repeat?  WOW.  2 more riflemen and a Blue hat. Yet another wild weekend at Lapeer!  WhooHoo.   ^:)^  Too tired to make coherent thinking..  must get sl e e p. 

Here's some more pics.

Second strike with Hannah Davis


Jerry working through IMC


Steady Hold Factors


Eric and the rest of the main line working hard


First and Third strikes.  Nice Job!



So close to an ICICLE Patch.  32.0 degrees is not below 32.  Sorry Guys the thermometer is going up.


Kat scores with her new rifle.  Nice job.


MOOSE!


Erik waited until the end to sqeeeek across the line.  210!


The best people on earth.


New IIT's.  What have I done...

Thanks "BO PEEP"

Wow!
Congratulations to all the riflemen and new hat wearers!
Especially my friend, who did so good, Whippet!  ^:)^
Can't we all just agree to disagree in a civil fashion while the planet's last, fading hope of liberty and prosperity gets snuffed out?

No. We can't.

The Monday morning commute after a weekend Appleseed Event is the only time I don't mind my 80 minute drive to work. It gives me time to reflect on all the new friends I met, the stories we shared and time we took to honor our country and the liberties that were gifted to us so long ago.

Congratulations to all the new Rifleman and to those who took up the cause and are now wearing a funny colored hat. Know that you are everything that Appleseed works for.

And now for the Pictures!

The morning briefing...

Under the bus isn't such a bad place to be,  better people than I have been tossed under and emerged stronger for it.  I tell all of my friends about Appleseed  yet so few are willing to test themself or even learn anything new, so I am very proud of those who did show up.  We all had such a great time that now as a group; we will convert all those Disc-golfers and video-game players we know, to challenge themselfs and just show up.  I expect the Appleseed cadre (myself included) to do the easy part and educate, inspire, and get them involved.  Shout out to the Iceman.  His use of tone, inflection, and confidence, in the third strike is something I aspire too.  The apple didn't fall far from the tree.  As for that elusive gray patch, know this;  right now I am in the sitting position (with my support arm under the rifle) in my dogs wading pool in 10 inches of water and 20 bags of ice.  Thanks to all for a great weekend.
I get things done because I get things done.

Here is a photo of Zach shooting 3 out of 4 on the 200 yard KD.

I finally picked a forum name.  My wife did not want me to use Gus, so I had to pick something different. 
Superheat, you didn't say anything about not having time to eat when I accepted the orange hat.......oh well, some things are more important than eating.   Thanks for the opportunity to help.
