Support Needed for Fellow Appleseeder

Greetings Appleseeders!

Here's your chance to show support for a fellow Appleseeder. This spring my son, Dirk Seymour, aka ROLAND entered a photo contest sponsored by SWFA.  His photo has been selected as a finalist and the winner (and other rankings) is determined by voting.  Voting ends midnight April 30, so there is still time to vote.  Since this contest is all about photos of shooting, shouldn't Appleseed weigh in?  Even if you don't vote for Roland, I encourage you to weigh in as members of the shooting community.  Still undecided? Then I encourage you to read this AAR and remember why we are involved in Appleseed http://appleseedinfo.org/smf/index.php?topic=45156.0

Surely you are ready to vote now, so why not support a fellow Appleseeder?  Dirk shot his first Rifleman score at 14, where he picked up the Orange Hat under Shoot Boss Reformed Redneck.  He's been at it ever since, got the Red Hat at 16 and still comes home from college to give his ole man a hand at shoots whenever he can.

Here is the link to the SWFA voting site- http://swfa.com/ContestEntries.aspx

You will receive an email from SWFA to confirm your vote.  This is the actual vote, so please respond to the email.  I've been on SWFA's email list for over a year, and they never send notices other than really good sales! So please don't think they are spamming you.  It is a reputable company as many shooters can attest. 

Thank you for your support.

EERT and proud Dad.

Last evening, it occurred to me that when a defender of Liberty is called home, their load lands upon the shoulders of the defenders left behind. Just as the Founders did their duty for Liberty, every subsequent generation must continue their work lest Liberty perish. As there is no way for the remaining adults to take on the work of those that die, we must pass the ideals and duties on to the children. -PHenery

Nothing in the world can take the place of Persistence. Talent will not; nothing is more common than unsuccessful men with talent. Genius will not; unrewarded genius is almost a proverb. Education will not; the world is full of educated derelicts. Persistence and determination alone are omnipotent. The slogan 'Press On' has solved and always will solve the problems of the human race.

Thanks for all the support, folks! It's the last day of voting and I wouldn't be near this high placing without your help

"Be a man of principle. Fight for what you believe in. Keep your word. Live with integrity. Be brave. Believe in something bigger than yourself. Serve your country. Teach. Mentor. Give something back to society. Lead from the front. Conquer your fears. Be a good friend. Be humble and be self-confident. Appreciate your friends and family. Be a leader and not a follower. Be valorous on the field of battle. And take responsibility for your actions. Never forget those that were killed. And never let rest those that killed them." -- Major Douglas Zembiec

"5 minutes for this stage - that's like a week in people years!"

"Responsibility is a unique concept... You may share it with others, but your portion is not diminished. You may delegate it, but it is still with you... If responsibility is rightfully yours, no evasion, or ignorance or passing the blame can shift the burden to someone else. Unless you can point your finger at the man who is responsible when something goes wrong, then you have never had anyone really responsible.�
― Hyman G. Rickover

"Scoring is a function of great execution, and winning Is the result, but thinking about winning can pull your focus off of proper execution in a competition. Thinking about process is the answer."- Lanny Bassham

Roland

Well, I ended up in 6th place,  and won a Sightron 8-32x scope. That... I don't have much use for, and would be glad to sell to a fellow Appleseeder if there is interest!

Thank you all for the help, I couldn't have placed near as high without all the support!

See you all on the trail,

Dirk/Roland
