Another Great weekend for Appleseed.

Thank You to our host The Iroquois Rod and Gun Club for the use of their facility!

Great Fall weather welcomed both students and instructors, alike.

We had a Good mix of both new and veteran Appleseed Students.

We had a New Young Patriot, Matt, who came with his dad, Sean. Matt stayed persistant throughout the course of day. Matt stayed focused and interested, continually improving fundamentals. Matt even moved over to the 100yd KD and after making the proper sight adjusments was able to score many Hits on Target :---

Sean contiued to work throughout the days on his skills, and his groups contiually got smaller O0

Joe joined us on Sunday, as follow up to last weekend at Saratoga. Joe's score continually climbed,but unfortunatly he had to take off early. I'm sure he'll be back looking for that elusive patch. :)

Keith, aka Spock951, came Sunday Morning, rifle in hand(Hardly recognized him without a Garand).
Keith proceeded to punish Rapid fire AQTs with a low score of 235, and a high of 247 O0 O0,with many, many scores in between. :~

Keith an IIT2 also "volunteered" to read The Battles of Saratoga, in rememberance of the upcomming Anniversary. O0

Cindy worked hard throughout the weekend Aqt after Aqt and she is knocking at the door, Cindy, remember, relax into the sling!

Cindy also decided to lend a hand!

Please join me in Welcoming New Yorks Newest Blue Hat Cindy  O0(screen name to follow).

Rob requalified on the first official Aqt on Saturday, 213  O0 with his Bolt Action,  O0 and quite a few more times, before his rifle had a malfunction, and had to be retired for the day. No problem... Spare rifle to the line. Unfortunatly this rifle didn't cooperate either....Dude provide a loaner, and Rob made quick work of Requalifing. 213,218,and a 222 Plus Rob went on Clear the afternoon Red Coat O0,   

Rob decided to lend a hand!

Please join me in Welcoming New Yorks Newest Orange Hat Rob O0 (screen name to follow).

Perfect weather, great instruction, and a fantastic bunch of shooters!

Congratulations and Thank You to Cindy and Rob for stepping up and taking the Blue and Orange hats!  Looking forward to seeing you at future Appleseeds!

Tons of fun shooting at distance.  It is a real challenge trying to clear the Red Coat at 100 yards!

I want to send a big thank you to everyone for this past weekend. Matt and I learned a lot and we look forward to future events. This really is a wonderful program and I have already been spreading the word to others and encouraging them to sign up for events.

Thank you all again for everything.
