Racine Wi, Feb 23-24 2013
« on: February 24, 2013, 09:29:43 PM »
5 Americans braved this chilly Wisconsin weekend.  3 Saturday, and 2 on Sunday.  It was a balmy 24 degrees, with 15mph winds coming from the west.  We peaceably gathered to learn about our heritage, and improve our marksman skills, with nothing but the land owners permission.  Rounds down range by 9:01, as we started down the path to becoming rifleman.  The first redcoat was humbling, and left the shooters with the realization that they did indeed have a journey afoot!  IITS DrRichP and Beck flexed their instructing muscles as we began to forge more rifleman.  Thanks to 2clicks, Janir and BrettA for coming to help and mold our new IITs and future rifleman.  Although there were no qualifying scores, the spirt of the rifleman was awakened in all that attended!!  :---  Thank you to all the shooters who came out and improved their knowledge of our history, and became a part of our heritage.  Thanks to fathers for passing on our heritage to our children, and uncles to our nephews!!  Our country is THAT much better now!

Thanks to Triggernick, Janir, 2 Clicks, and Dr Rich for helping me enjoy another great Appleseed event as an IIT where I had an opportunity to sharpen my instructor knowledge and training.  Camaraderie was great and training attendees was fun. Saturday was cold but thanks to Janir for providing portable gas heat to warm us up when the temps were frigid and the winds were blowing strong. All-in- all, another great opportunity to promote our heritage   , liberty and freedoms, marksmanship skills and technique, and the honor of being a Rifleman.
