Preparing to pack out for the Appleseed, two hundred and forty years ago in Boston, a crown colony there were people watching to see what was happening, what was going to happen, and decision makers (General Gage, Samuel Adams, John Hancock, and Doctor Warren) were making plans for their purposes over the next few days or weeks. Meetings held, information gathered and notes taken and messages sent out. None of the purposes and messages were aligned, confrontation was possible, battles and wars always start when one of the opposing forces believe the other force will not fight over some simple adjustment in the normal pattern. The accepted pattern.

... to catch the fire in another American for sharing the skills and our heritage to our posterity. Maybe my perfect shots will be made by those I met along the trials and trails of Appleseed. I know that America is a nation of Riflemen.

What a great weekend Appleseed! ^:)^

I do hope everyone had as wonderful time as I did, it is a keeper. Beautiful weather, fine host range and hosting family, return of IIT from college for the weekend and she brought a friend to shoot an Appleseed - wow, it couldn't be written better in Hollywood. The profession volunteer crew and a humble but trying Shoot Boss. What do you mean, No 30 Cal rule?

Over five hundred rounds on target this weekend, and Ralph brought out his center fire rifles with ammunition for the crew to shoot the Memorial Volley. Adding to the power of the shot heard round the country on Patriots Day.

Pictures then I have to go to bed, there were too many camera shy shooters so the choice is limited, if I still have you by accident and it needs to go tell me.

Thank you for such a great experience! Earl and his crew did a fantastic job, and I can't wait to attend again. It would be a shame not to now that Earl has my wife's name right (Lay-A... Lay-a) :)

Thanks again to everyone that made this weekend happen.

 What Tracey_B said, goes double for me.
Have to mention how nice it was to have our daughter 'Chronos' home from college for the weekend and to help out on the line. 
Brought her friend Meghan, a delight to have around and great shooter striving to improve her skills and learn more about Appleseed.
