Cut and paste from TomInCT...  See below.. great opportunity that should a FUN to boot!

To all Appleseed instructors:

 We have an opportunity to have a space at the North - South Skirmish Assn., nationals in Winchester Va. from about October 2-4th. The N-SSA has agreed to our promotional literature being handed out and this could be a boost in the mid Atlantic and other areas of the eastern US.

 The event will have about 2000 shooters plus their families and friends for somewhere around 6000+ people with traditional American values along with a hefty dose of black powder to go along with it! http://www.n-ssa.org/

  Many of those attending come from as far as Wisconsin to participate, so this isn't a local shoot by any stretch. Several teams from the northeast and New York will be there also. This is an eastern US promotion.

 The event starts on Wednesday Sept. 30 but the idea is to have a table manned by AS IT's Friday thru Sunday afternoon. Primitive camping will be available and there will be other aspects that will be posted soon.

 Before we get too far , what is needed is help. 3-4 people Friday and 5 on Saturday and Sunday would be a good number to staff this. It need not be for the duration, a day or two would work well. just as long as there's fair coverage no one will be overworked.

 Along with the promotion is the chance to see what the N-SSA nationals are about, which include a mortar shoot on Friday afternoon and artillery on Saturday afternoon.

  Here's the event calendar:http://static1.squarespace.com/static/54db881ce4b0486db510c47b/t/55c90dbbe4b01980f2604c70/1439239611145/132nd+Nationals+Program+Draft+2.pdf

 So. it is hoped that many of you consider this as many hands will lighten the load. Please respond here asap or it will be just an idea that didn't work out.

This could be a great opportunity.  Most of our Corps is working the Ladyseed that weekend.  Not sure how many folks are uncommitted that weekend.

If it weren't for Ladyseed, I'd go just for the mortar contest!

"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

 Hello, here's the follow up as mentioned earlier.

 We have a opportunity to get the word out and 7th step about 100 times the number of people you would have the chance at a regular event. Sounds big and it is.

Some folks are needed to make this successful and help in the staffing, set up and take down at the N-SSA nationals.

 Ok, so far we have two people on for Saturday, one for Sunday. Could use some more help on this. There have been a LOT of lookers, judging by the number of visits to the thread(s). I hope a few of you can make the commitment to work one or both days.

 I need to have a list of names to submit for vendor passes before Thursday evening. Unfortunately waiting until a few days out from the big weekend won't work in this case.
