Crawfordsville July 11-12
« on: July 08, 2015, 02:03:31 AM »
Can anyone fill me in on what is going on with Appleseed events/instructors in Indiana? I'm considering signing up for the Crawfordsville event this weekend (July 11-12) which lists ATM as the shoot boss. However, some odd things make me wonder if this event is actually going to occur:

1) there are still 19 spots available for the event (I'm a little new to Appleseed, but that seems WAY out of line for just days before the event)
2) ATM is listed as an "Inactive Instructor" on the forums (if he's "inactive" how is he running this event?)
3) TJ Kackowski and Brian Heeter (who both ran the Indy event in May that I attended) are now also listed as "Inactive Instructors". TJ had just taken over running all of Indiana I believe and now he is "inactive"???
4) the "What happened to all the Indiana instructors?" thread (http://appleseedinfo.org/smf/index.php?topic=45801.0) also doesn't provide much clarity on what is going on

If someone could provide some clarity regarding what is happening it would be appreciated. Perhaps I'm reading too much into this or seeing things that simply aren't there -- feel free to let me know if that is the case also.

Finally, is the July 11-12 Crawfordsville event still on?

Thanks!

The event is still on and appears to have plenty of instructors.  I have heard there might be a lot of walk-ons too.  I'm still on the fence about helping with this shoot due to an injury.

Most of the info on what happened with the now "inactive" instructors has been scrubbed.  There was a disagreement and the two sides parted ways.  You'll see the inactive instructors being active in another program eventually.

So who's running the Crawfordsville event? I'm assuming it is not ATM as is listed...

That would be me!  Yes, the event is going on as planned.  Lots of good instruction and history and shootin'!
