2015 Shoots?
« on: May 26, 2015, 11:39:35 AM »
Are there any shoots scheduled for 2015?
Unhappy it is ... to reflect that a brother's sword has been sheathed in a brother's breast, and that the once happy and peaceful plains of America are either to be drenched with blood or inhabited by slaves. Sad alternative! But can a virtuous man hesitate in his choice?

Not so far. 

Calamity and circumstance have rendered us asunder this year.  Really wish to make something happen, but right now I am up to my proverbial ass in alligators with the house fire.  It seems as is the rest of the Vermont team for one thing or another.

I've had a few discussions here and there, it seems that some, me included, can do the days but not the organizing. But with any luck maybe make time toward the end of the summer early fall.

Well, with a 2 month lead time, we're looking at a November shoot... in Vermont.  ::) NOT.

So... perhaps we can start planning NOW for a May, 2016 shoot? I'm iffy on weekends between running a kitchen table FFL business and various other commitments (Nickle just got me to join the Vermont State Guard, too), but I'd like to try and get at least a couple of shoots going for VT.

Other than you, Nickle, Luv2BeFree (my wife, BTW) and me, who else do we have for instructors? GMB74 is pretty well swamped from what he tells me, so let's see if we can get something going for next year.

Hornblower and I are usually in Vermont for a couple of weeks in July.  If you get something on the schedule for then, and you need some extra folks, we may be able to help out. 

November shoot in Vermont...might not even make the cut as a Winterseed these days.  Weather's gotten wimpy up there over the last couple decades.   ;D

I believe in liberty very much as Jefferson did, allowing for the fact that a hundred years of history and experience have taught me to believe a little more than he did in original sin.

There's a one day shoot in Southern VT in the works.
Looks like sometime in November 2015.

Hopefully more info shortly.

We haven't forgot about you Vermont.  O0

November... Yikes. Please, DON'T have it either of the weekends bracketing Thanksgiving. Weekend before I'm running a Turkey Shoot for my Masonic Lodge in MA and the weekend after, I'm at a gun show in White River Junction. (and yes, I'll have a ready-to-rock LTR, brandy-new, with me. Unless it gets sold first and I don't have a chance to make another).

 Here's the AAR for the Stamford shoot: http://appleseedinfo.org/smf/index.php?topic=47044.0

 There COULD be a winterseed at the same location. The landowner is open to it, accessibilty being the issue. It all depends on the amount of snow they get up there and how to get folks in and out from a specific spot. It's on a seasonal road so it isn't plowed, at least where the property is.

 I'll speak to him about it,stay tuned....
