For those who would like to see this info visually, here's a map!

(I also have a wall sized version of this map, I hope we'll turn into a promo poster at some point in the future)
"We have always looked upon men as a set of beings naturally free - that a people can never be divested of those invaluable rights and liberties which are necessary to the happiness of individuals, to the well-beings of communities or to a well regulated state, but by their own negligence, imprudence, timidity or rashness. They are seldom lost, but when foolishly forfeited or tamely resigned." ~Jonas Clarke

You did an awesome job!   :bow:

They who can give up essential liberty to obtain a little temporary safety, deserve neither liberty nor safety.
Benjamin Franklin, 1775

"A free people ought not only to be armed, but disciplined; to which end a uniform and well-digested plan is requisite; and their safety and interest require that they should promote such manufactories as tend to render them independent of others for essential, particularly military, supplies."  George Washington 1790

Wow, thanks! That was neat to watch.
I recognize a few of the other faces, too. Do you know when & where this event was?

For South Carolina, the first was a one day Mini-seed.  I don't believe it was officially sanctioned.  It occurred outside of Orangeburg at Mid-Carolina Gun Club in 2007 or 2008.  I got the information second hand 10 years ago.  Instructors would have been at least Junior Birdman, Talon and maybe 30CalGal.

The one that is officially recorded here is another one day Mini-seed outside of Gaston, SC at Mid-Carolina Rifle Club 13DEC2008.
I am not sure if it was officially sanctioned, but there was a lot of talent there as instructors.
Silence, Talon, CannonMan61, Boltgun71, TazDevil, Thor and of course me DEH (formerly known as ThomasSumter, formerly known as DuaneRN, formerly known as DwayneH)

The first officially sanctioned full Appleseed was 02-03MAY2009 outside of Gaston, SC at Mid-Carolina Rifle Club. Instructors were.
SonOfMarth, CannonMan61, Talon, Boltgun71, TazDevil and me DEH (formerly known as ThomasSumter, formerly known as DuaneRN, formerly known as DwayneH).  I also think that JuniorBirdman came out and was there as a shooter.  There may have been other instructors there, but I did not record names in the AAR.

For the weapons of our warfare are not carnal, but mighty through God to the pulling down of strong holds;
Casting down imaginations, and every high thing that exalts itself against the knowledge of God, and bringing into captivity every thought to the obedience of Christ.
2 Corinthians 10:4-5

For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.

Ephesians 6:12
