LibertySeeds Indiana
« on: February 05, 2013, 08:42:45 PM »
Planning and strategy discussion to maximize LibertySeed venues and participation around Indiana this year.

Check out this link for the how-to resources: http://appleseedinfo.org/smf/index.php?topic=33982.0

Then let's make some contacts in our communities and get out there with the message.

Post up your progress, your needs, your excuses (<--- Ha! I dare you!  ;D )

Let's surpass our own expectations. Let me know what you need!

ATM is excited, why are you not excited?  ^:)^

[edit - YHJ changed Libraryseed to Libertyseed]

Indiana Appleseed:  Farm Bred, Brass Fed

Lord make me fast and accurate. Let my aim be true, and my hands faster than those who would seek to destroy me.  Grant me victory over my foes, and those  that wish to do harm to me and mine. Let not my last thought be if I only had my Gun; and Lord if today is truly the day that you take me home, let me die in a pile of empty brass.

None scheduled quite yet, but on a whim I posted this note on our facebook page this morning, "Do you know of a group who needs to hear the story? A community group, homeschool, scout troop, or other organization? We'd love to come share the events of April 19, 1775 with your group. The Three Strikes of the Match, presented by our volunteers. And the cost - FREE! Just send us an email, in@appleseedinfo.org, and we'll be there!"

And in less than 8 hours, we have three inquiries!  Pretty cool for 30 seconds worth of work.   ;)

Outstanding, AB! Feel free to copy me directly with any Indiana contacts for follow-up coordination and scheduling.
 
It's quite possible, with the vast reach of Facebook, you'll get inqueries from residents of other states to forward on to their respective State Coordinators as well.  :)
 
I'm also waiting for our local Boy Scout troop to select a date for a presentation. They're interested in hearing the story as well as a detailed overview of attending a full Appleseed event this year. HUZZAH!

OK, Indiana crew, the stage is set. 2013 is the year and LibrarySeeds emerge as a dominant share of the plan.
You know your role, you've got the goods to deliver, and the "audience" is in a desperate state of anticipation... so what do you do?
 
You reach them, engage them, humble and inspire them - you set them on a course of rediscovery, of ownership, honor and responsibility.
You call forth the sleeping American and arm them with a sense of identity steeped in heritage. Embetter the people - save the nation - win fabulous prizes...
 
Wait.  :cool2:  What was that last part again?  ???  That's just a metaphor, right?
Well, the ultimate prize is that our current efforts will produce something of inestimable value to pass on to our posterity, but that's not all...
 
Check this out: http://appleseedinfo.org/smf/index.php?topic=34133.0
 
Those who spring out of the gate and start participating now (NOW!) will be entered in a chance (or chances) to win a generously donated training membership package as an added incentive to flood the nation with LibrarySeeds through April.
 
Put on, Indiana! It's GO TIME, let's ROLL!

There has been a great deal of discussion concerning Libraryseeds on the forum. Here is a thread that discusses the need for Libraryseeds as an additional way to get our message out in a time when the ship is sinking faster and faster.
http://appleseedinfo.org/smf/index.php?topic=33872.0

I think any Appleseed Instructor that watched the State of the Union Address the other night would agree with me, that we are in big trouble! Therefore I have decided to personally offer a little incentive to increase our efforts on Libraryseeds. I know you are going to say, "That the mission alone is the only incentive you need." And I agree with you, but I think it would be fun to have a little contest and see how high our numbers could actually get. So here is what I am going to do.

Starting tomorrow every time you participate in a Libraryseed with a speaking roll of at least one of the Three Strikes, you will have a ticket with your name placed into a raffle. The more events you do, the more chances you have to win. Your name must be mentioned as performing a Strike on the IAAR for that Libraryseed to receive credit. You must be an IIT 3 or higher to hold your own Libseed, however II2 and lower and Blue Hats may receive credit if they give one of the Strikes under the supervision of a Red Hat. They must have contact with the Red Hat that will write the IAAR prior to the event.

 This contest will coincide with the push for Libraryseeds during the week of the April 19th event and therefore will end on midnight of April 30, 2013. To clarify, the Libraryseed must be completed by this date but you will have an additional 3 days to complete your IAAR. The drawing will be held on Saturday May 4th and I will post the winner that day on this thread.
http://appleseedinfo.org/smf/index.php?topic=34133.0

So what's the prize?

The winner will receive a Lifetime Patriot Membership to Front Sight Firearms Training Center in Las Vegas Nevada. This membership will allow you to take a class in 4 Day Defensive Handgun,  4 Day Practical Rifle , and 4 day Tactical Shotgun as many times as you wish for the rest of your life. This membership is worth $1000. I am including a link to Front Sight Nevada, so you may review these courses. This is a terrific value! The winner will receive the membership 4-6 weeks after the drawing.
http://www.frontsight.com/Courses.asp

Finally I am posting a link to a Thread on how to complete a proper Libraryseed. So don't delay, schedule your Libraryseeds and good luck!

If you have a libseed to schedule please send a short EIP to Instructor Scheduling (Miki and North Country Lady) are now helping with this. All they need is date, time, location (city state, etc) , misc and they'll get it posted.

Tweaked the libseed page on website a bit, still a work in progress.

I'm a Cubmaster and Den Leader in New Albany wanting a LibertySeed in mid March (targetting 3/11/13) at the New Albany Floyd County Public Library, might even be able to combine with the Sellersburg request (don't mean to horn in, just looking at options).

I doubt all three strikes can be done in one setting, how long is each typically?

I've emailed both KY & IN contacts from the contact page (http://appleseedinfo.org/contact_us.html), Kevin from KY has responded that he forwarded to the IN folks. I'm just trying every avenue by posting here too.

Finally, what's it take to "get qualified" to present these? I'm blocked from the "How to" pages.

Each strike can be compressed down to about 20 minutes, so an hour for all 3.

Getting qualified involves attending a couple Appleseed events and passing a few small tests.  Not too big of a deal, really.  The tellers of the Strikes are all Appleseed instructors, and one of the steps in becoming an instructor is qualifying in the storytelling.  The other steps are pretty easy.

I am liking these Libertyseeds, pretty easy and to the point. I will be doing one over the weekend of April 13-14 at Kentucky Lake for Bushcraft USA. Still working out the details but should be 50 or so there to listen.

Sorry through the week is tough on me class Monday, Wednesday and Thursday and work late just about every other evening.

We're on it (via PMs at the moment but contacts and planning to follow), and thanks always for your attentiveness.

I'm hoping that one large March event may be suitable to fulfill both these recent requests and even fuel some local promo for an April follow-up event in the same Sellersburg/New Albany area.

Libertyseed scheduled:

April 15, 6:30 PM at the Boy Scout cabin in Rensselaer

Arranged by Stubborn Yankee.  Who I'm sure will be giving at least one of the strikes that evening.   &)

Fully staffed, no need for anyone to do anything more.  How easy was that?!  So that leaves...7 more Libertyseeds to schedule for Patriots Day week and many, many more for the year.   O0

Outstanding!

I've sent a program proposal to Carmel Clay Public Library to co-sponsor some LibertySeeds on behalf of Maynard and spitfire51 who have stepped up to present the first one there.

Also touched base again with my local Boy Scout troop. They may be ready to talk scheduling after their meeting next week.

YHJ stepped up and made an awesome impact and connection at his recent LibertySeed. Check it out:
