SACRAMENTO, CA NOVEMBER 18-19 AAR

WOW!!!

What a great event.  The weather was pleasant (well, that is when the wind wasn't blowing on Sunday), the shooters were AWESOME!!, the staff was wonderful (as usual).

11folks came out Saturday and 14 on Sunday to share in what I consider the great American pastime...learning to shoot as riflemen and riflewomen at an Appleseed.

We got started with the safety briefing, got the rifles on the line and checked, red coats posted and we were off and running with the teaching.  This group showed right away that they were here to do some serious learning.  Groups began shrinking and positions firmed up.

A break for lunch and some awesome history (part of the great American pastime.) told by Melissa, Neve and Ducky.

After lunch, we returned to the line and more teaching.  Even managed to get in a couple of AQT's before quitting for the day.  Much improvement by all. 

3 incognito instructors were out visiting and getting in some trigger time and showed that they still knew very well what they were about by posting rifleman scores.

Sunday, brought some clouds and a light wind that had a bite of winter to it. 

All our shooters returned, plus Hans wife and two boys.  We were wondering if John had decided not to rejoin us, but just as we were getting ready to shoot the first Red Coat, he came roaring up on a motorcycle, rifle case strapped to his back...not about to miss a single thing!

We reviewed the teaching of Saturday and proceeded to the AQT's.  Scores were looking very nice.  John posted a nice 204. 

High score of the weekend however, went to Hans, 244!!!  Nice work!!

Ute, you did a great job!!  Keep practicing and I hope to see you & Chuck at another shoot either in Sacramento or up in Red Bluff or Hat Creek.

Chris and Meghan, awesome!!!!  Come back again and bring friends...oh and you can bring Mike and Lisa too.

Mike and Lisa...well...awesome as usual.  Mike, thanks for putting on your invisible orange hat and demoing seated for Joe. 

Hans, Pascal, Ann and Jesse...great work guys!!

Chris, John Pat, and Joel..Keep up the good work and hope to see you at another event soon!!

Thanks to those who helped us tear down and clean up. It means a lot to have the extra help to allow us to get cleaned up quickly.

Thanks to my wonderful instructors who make my job sooo easy!

Make yourselves good scouts and good rifle shots in order to protect the women and children of your country if it should ever become necessary.

What a great weekend! It's always a pleasure to meet all the wonderful people that come to these events and this weekend was no exception. Thanks to everyone who made it down and a big thanks to my fellow instructors, especially NorCal22Gal and Eaglescouter for making the trip all the way from Redding to make this shoot possible. I can't tell you how much I appreciate it. I hope to see you all very soon.

Appleseed seems to attract the most amazing, salt-of-the-earth folks who I'm always so grateful to be around... thank you all so much for another fantastic shoot. :) What a beautiful weekend, and a great line of Americans turned Riflemen in heart. See you all again next month!
