In early April - during the week before the Patriot's Day weekend shoot - lets do Libertyseeds in the population area of each of our primary shooting venues.  Sierra Vista, Tucson, Phoenix, and Kingman.  These are deceptively easy to set up and do - reserve a room at your local library - most can do that online (do that NOW, to be sure that you get on the library event calendar for April, deadline is usually at least a month ahead), promote with community calendar listings in local papers and community websites, post fliers, then just show up and tell the three strikes! 

I use a Powerpoint slide show of maps that I can point to while talking, and hang up the "Tour of Flags" and maybe a few other props, but all that extra stuff is just set-dressing, and can be done without - all that's really needed is the same engaging oral presentation of the Three Strikes that we're all used to doing at every shoot.

We have local BOTG who can promo the events and tell the strikes in every area but Kingman - I'd be willing to travel up there if someone else volunteers to cover Tucson.

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.

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.

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!

Seriously?  Nobody else in the entire state of Arizona can spare 90 minutes of their choosing at their own local library relating the exact same three strikes we tell at every shoot?

I'm taking Tucson then.
