Hello Group; The Chili Sportsmans Club Gun Show was well attended, Small rifle and pistol Primers sold out early saturday, I found another type of sight to use on a  Ruger LTR. When its been in use for a fair amount of time I will give a Report on service of this front and rear sight combo at this point it looks like a reasonable option.
 G69, M1D, and I were supplied a table by OUR GOOD FRIEND AND FELLOW RIFLEMAN, Cliff from the Club, Thank You Cliff. Your club has a wonderfull facility and we can`t wait for your next event. There was much interest with the membership, many of them new fellows to your club many of which knew about last years Appleseed and were asking when and where will be the next chance to attend a Seed. Again Thanks To ALL THE CHILLI SPORTSMEN FOR BEING GREAT HOSTS!!!  :) ;) ;D 8) O0 @) :~ PAPPY

Great time had by all!!

We had the chance to speak at length with many interested folks and and we should have an excellent oppurtunity to sell out Chilli!

Any of you folks reading this, always try to attend an Appleseed Hosts Gun Shows!!! You have a near captive and very receptive audience that may or may not know about the shoot, but will support it as a Club activity.

Thanks Klippefurt! see you in May O0

Thanks M1D for making the trek and of course, thanks for the hospitality Mr. & Mrs. Pappy, you were right about the pork roast sam-itch-es. Who would have guessed that roast pork is like Kryptonite to Ole' Sluefoot and I managed to leave the property unscathed (and un-stuck), and had a tasty meal while driving through the blizzard to get home! (well not really a blizzard, more of a slushard, but my wipers would only let me do 65mph  ;D )

Hello Group; This Sunday is Mothers Day and also its GUN SHOW week end at Kane County Fair Grounds!!!!
 This will be a great time to pick up that new rifle that you know she has always wanted bring her along so she can pick out the one she likes.
 G69 and I and a few other VIP`s will be attending stop by and watch the table a bit or just chat, but come and see what DEALS there is to be had. DO NOT forget some stuff to trade as that always makes things interesting. I remember a time when my Grandmothers both came to a Gun Show I was working it was in the late 80`s and so were they. When they got to the door the man said, Laidies! You know this is a Gun Show!, and they replied Good! we must be in the right place. They were just from church and dressed to the nines, AS always Pappy

Hello Group; We have two of our Instructors Sheepdog and EEL out in Montana at the RBC so make some plans to be at the Kane Co fair grounds this Sunday we could use your help to hand out papers and promote the project. A big push is needed to fill out the next few shoots, See you There, and do not forget its Mothers Day. Pappy


 Well We had quite a time spreading the word and handing out Swat reprints Blue press reprints , Papers and other Appleseed event Flyers. The gouging continues for Primers and ammo reloading components 80.00 for small rifle primers!!!! WOW. I wonder if they are going for a record. This is just a example, stuff was flying off the tables at first opening. LOTS OF INTEREST IN THE PROGRAM here in the land of suc, I wonder why. Pappy

Hello Team Illinois; Next weekend March 27&28 in Princeton IL there will be a Gun Show at the fair grounds.
 We could use some help on the table. This show is a bit different than those in the suburbs, it goes TWO days.
If you have not been to a Gun Show this year this would be a great time to start. Please PM me if you will be able to make it. Thanks, JP

Great place to pick up AR parts>>>>>>>>>>

Come on Illinois P U S H !  Colorado has 3 shoots 4/17-18 1 is sold out, 1 is on the verg of selling out and well the other needs some shocker paddles and a shot of adrenilne. But what I'm sayin is all ya all live in the 3rd most poulated state in the country. Drag these shooters out there and have'm catch the Spirt of 1775, bask in our rich heritage, revere those who have given us this great country, and take you shooting to another level.
Miss all you fine appleseeders in Illinois. We welcome border raiding in Colorado and the scenery is spectacular.
Keep up the good work. Mike/Sheepdog

Hello ALL! WOW.. what a show, THANK YOU!, to all who staffed the tables, talked APPLESEED FOR HOURS as if on a steady hold factor recording of what we do and how we do it.. Demo of how to get into and out of a loop sling for many who had never seen or heard of that usage. Many new faces, many new folks who sang the praises of the Appleseed who had never yet attended.. These are our future instructor corps.. So do not let a chance slip past you, take the time and sell it every time as if it was the last chance you will have... IT MEANS THAT MUCH.
 Again THANKS to our INSTRUCTOR CORPS gunshow Volunteers, YOU have made a large IMPACT...
 Klipperfurt- Cliff , Tin Man 68- Dana , Ewald- David.. To each one of you Thanks, it was a pleasure... See you on the RANGE!

1. Thanks to Pappy. It was a pleasure to watch him work at Princeton. I met new people and came home with a press to boot.

2. I'll be at the Kane County show for more fun. If you haven't gone to a show with Pappy, you should. The man truly has talents.

3. Just out, the DuPage show has been moved to April 25 so as to not conflict with Easter. It is the last of the season for there.

Kane County was fun. Good job everyone. The crew was Pappy, Garand69, Dangerous Old Man, Gumballhead, Ashes, Skyhawk, and Ewald. A motley crew planting seeds and laughing all the way.

Next up is DuPage County Fairgrounds on Sunday April 25th. Show opens at 8:30. We need to be there by 8:00 to set up. We have one table reserved. The check is in the mail. Pappy is taking a break from this one. The crew will be D.O.M, Gumballhead, and Ewald. PM if your interested.

We know gun show promo works. This is our last shot for mass face to face contact in Wheaton until the show season starts again in the fall. We have a 300 shooter line to fill on September 11th. It's just an hour down the road. Let's take the energy we get on April 19th and start building for September!
