Re: Michigan Comes Alive - # of Sell Outs Contest
« Reply #30 on: August 02, 2016, 06:55:52 PM »
If you thought Michigan was down and out, you thought wrong. They've tied it up with Indiana and have their sights set on taking down Kentucky on their way to the top of the leader board.

Team Michigan has just sold out a big venue (40 person line) at Sturgis on August 12-13, 2016. With this big success they have momentum and their hungry. Now they're looking at Fenton, on August 27-28, 2016, and Watervliet, October 15-16, 201 (Only 2 spots left).

Will Kentucky be able to get something going and hold them off? Will Wisconsin be able to fend off the ensuing onslaught? SteelThunder and ITB tell me they have the best team in the Great Lakes and they're ready to show it.

Is Illinois still alive? Are they on Life-Support? Someone please cut off their supply of propofol!!  :'(

And The Stars Keep Falling! - # of Sell Outs Contest
« Reply #31 on: August 15, 2016, 12:12:46 PM »
Yes, both Indiana and Ohio have SOLD OUT events this last weekend.  :bow:

Sell Out mammoth Ohio has stretched their lead over Wisconsin by scoring another Sell Out! They’ve sold out Marion, OH on October 29-30, 2016; but they’re not done! Corvette says he really wants to let all the other states know Ohio is the greatest in the Great Lakes Region. Piqua, OH on August 20-21, 2016 only has 4 spots left and they’re looking to make it 9 sell outs for the year, maybe 10 or more.

Team Ohio was just at Annual Ohioan's for Concealed Carry's Picnic in the Park looking to sell out more events.

Indiana has (as Janir and Team Indiana threatened) tied it up with Kentucky (who seem to be floundering) by selling out Indianapolis, IN October 22-23, 2016. They also have a lead on another new range. They continue to grow as part of their rebuilding efforts.

Am I to conclude Hoosier’s eat Blue Grass? Hmm.  ???

Janir says Team Indiana is going to sell out LaPorte, IN September 10-11, 2016 (which only has 6 spots left) to stomp Kentucky down as it takes aim on Wisconsin. It might be time for Kentucky to get out their Pennsylvania Long Rifles and start fighting their way back to the top of the leader board. ::)

What about perennial powerhouse Wisconsin? They've been quiet as Martin and Team WI regroup; but they’ve got things in-the-works. River Falls, WI on October 8-9, 2016 only has 2 spots left. Martin and Team say Eagle/McMiller, WI October 8-9, 2016 and Racine, WI October 15-16, 2016 may also sell out to put them at 9, and maybe more. Can they mount a comeback, or are we watching Bunker Hill happen? I’d much rather be watching Saratoga happen.

In Illinois, Chewie has come out of the witness protection program. He called me last week. He says if IL can’t beat MI, he’ll shave his beard. #) Callin’ you out Michigan. :cool2:

Man this is a LOT of fun! I can’t tell you how proud I am for the teams of each state and the SC’s. O0 You’re doing a great job and I’m going to ask you to keep up the great work and let’s finish this year strong. I’m really interested in seeing how who will finish on top and set the tone for the rest of the region, a lot of state pride is on the line.

Outstanding!
 Go Great Lakes!

tk
The Second Amendment is a doomsday provision, one designed for those exceptionally rare circumstances where all other rights have failed -- where the government refuses to stand for reelection and silences those who protest; where courts have lost the courage to oppose, or can find no one to enforce their decrees. However improbable these contingencies may seem today, facing them unprepared is a mistake a free people get to make only once.

Most interesting statistics.  Normalized simply by the number of sellouts, the ranking is (1-6):  OH, WI, KY, IN, MI, and IL.  However, normalized by sellouts per million of population, the ranking instead becomes (1-6) WI, KY, OH, IN, MI, and IL.

WI is hitting, in terms of sellouts per million of population statewide, 104x10^-8 at first position, versus KY at number 2 with 90x10^-8, OH at number 3 with 69x10^-8, IN at number 4 with 60x10^-8, MI at number 5 at 30x10^-8, and IL at 8x10^-8.

Meanwhile, KY is punching above its weight class, with strong possibilities for achieving 2 more sell-outs through October.

Wow. ^-^  Team Ohio just sold out Piqua on August 20-21, 2016 in an attempt to stretch their lead over Wisconsin. An amazing effort by an amazing team!

But, just when they thought they were pulling away from the Badger State, Wisconsin says "Not so fast"! Wisconsin sells out River Falls on October 8-9, 2016 keeping the Buckeye lead at two. :wb:

Martin, and team Wisconsin, threaten Eagle/McMiller, WI October 8-9, 2016 is going to sell out as are a couple more events. He vows Wisconsin will finish the year in the number one spot. :cool2:

But wait! Ohio answers again by selling out Piqua, on October 22-23, 2016. This leads them into double-digit sell out territory! ^:)^ Now they take a 10-3 lead over Wisconsin. :bow:

Keep up the good work folks! We're entering the home stretch. Now's when we'll find out who is the best state in the Great Lakes Region in Appleseed.  :pop:

KY now has a double sell-out at Knob Creek!  The first of the year!  Most interesting statistics.  Normalized simply by the number of sellouts, the ranking is (1-6):  OH, WI, KY, IN, MI, and IL.  However, normalized by sellouts per million of population, the ranking instead now becomes (1-6) WI, KY, OH, IN, MI, and IL.

WI is hitting, in terms of sellouts per million of population statewide, 121x10^-8 at first position, versus KY at number 2 with 113x10^-8, OH at number 3 with 86x10^-8, IN at number 4 with 60x10^-8, MI at number 5 at 30x10^-8, and IL at 8x10^-8.

Meanwhile, KY is still punching above its weight class, with strong possibilities for achieving yet another sell-out through October, for our KD at Park City, KY.  It's a good year for Liberty in the Great Lakes Region!

Hold on just one gosh darn second.

I had this shoot see. Sept. 10&11 in LaPorte. Had 19 out of 25 preregs.
Range CXLD the date. Scuzzy had another signup as he canceled it online.
Club had assured me that it would have sold out as they have pent up demand.

Ergo I claim an Indiana sellout for this canceled event. We did our part.

Nope, 19 out of 25 preregs does not a sell out make. :-\ I appreciate your efforts though. Indiana only has one event left that is not sold out, Nappanee, September 24-25, 2016. Maybe you guys can sell out this one and show you're better than Kentucky. Good luck.

Wow. ^-^  Team Kentucky scoring the DOUBLE SELL OUT!

They couldn't get another date so they doubled the line by running relays and scored a double sell out. Very impressive!  ^:)^

Team Kentucky once again takes the lead from Janir and Team Indiana. Team Indiana's last chance seems to be Nappanee, September 24-25, 2016.

But wait, there's more. If Team Kentucky can get just 4 more to Boaz, on August 27-28, 2016, and just 4 more to Paducah on October 1-2, 2016, they can rack up 7 and tie team Wisconsin.
Oh my ...  :slap:

 ??? Uh oh, Team Michigan smells blood in the water. They only need 2 more to sell out Watervliet, on October 15-16, 2016 and tie it up with Team Indiana. ITB, Number 6, and Steel Thunder tell me Indiana is going down! &) They talk the talk, but can they walk the walk?  ::)

As it comes down to the wire, everybody is pouring it on. I can't wait to see this sure to be 'Photo Finish'. Good luck my friends!

Team Michigan has done it! ^:)^ They Sold Out Watervliet, on October 15-16, 2016 to tie it up with Team Indiana. ITB, Number 6, and Steel Thunder are celebrating while setting their sights on Kentucky who they also say is going down. ??? They have plenty of good opportunities left to do it too, Niles on September 10-11, 2016 and Fenton on October 1-2, 2016.

Can Team Kentucky can get just 4 more to Boaz, on August 27-28, 2016, or just 4 more to Paducah on October 1-2, 2016, to fend off Team Michigan?

Can Team Indiana sell out Nappanee, September 24-25, 2016 to once again tie it up with Michigan or will they loose?  :'(

Janir needs to stop dreaming about his Mandalorian armor and the mouse, and rally his team to victory in Nappanee.

All,

I just wanted to step back for a moment and share an observation or two and congratulate everyone in the region on the number of sell outs/shooters that we are bringing to the line in 2016.  If you go back two or three years, we were cancellling shoots due to zero pre-regs and doing shoots for just a couple of shooters.  What a magnificent difference in 2016.  Count them up, we have a chance to sell out 40-50 shoots in the region this year.  Think about that -- 40+ sold out shoots -- now pat yourself on the back for a job VERY well done.

And, let's give credit where credit is due.  I personally would like to thank DrRichP for taking the Regional Coordinator role seriously and for bringing a sense of excitement, urgency, motivation and fun to everybody's individual state challenges.  Three huzzah's for DrRich

I feel humbled to be a part of such a dedicated regional team.  Pew pew Merica  O0  Thank you for having me.

Wisconsin says "We're not done yet!" Great Lakes Region - # of Sell Outs Contest
« Reply #43 on: September 08, 2016, 03:43:37 PM »
Wisconsin says "We're not done yet!"

In an effort to regain their lead in the region Wisconsin has added another date to their calendar (and this idea is exceptional). They have added a 1-Day special "Frozen Chosin" Winterseed and invited the Young Marines, Active Duty Marines, and surrounding Marine Corps League Detachments (as well as the public) to join them in honoring "The Chosin Few"

Check this out from Team Wisconsin

The Frozen Chosin

The Battle of Chanjin (pronounced Chosin) Reservoir, was a decisive battle in the Korean War. On 27 November, 1950, during the coldest winter North Korea had experienced in 100 years, approximately 15,000 thousand U.N. forces were in pursuit of North Korean troops, when they were surprised by China’s entry into the Korean War and surrounded by 120,000 Chinese soldiers.

The U.N. forces, most of them U.S. Marines from the 1st Marine Division, fought for survival. A brutal 17-day battle in subfreezing weather soon followed. In that period, troops (later nicknamed "The Chosin Few") were encircled and attacked by Chinese troops who had been ordered by Mao Zedong to destroy the forces; but the Chinese did not achieve their goal of isolating and destroying the 1st Marine Division.

Surrounded and outnumbered 8-to-1 by the Chinese, the Marines embarked upon a 78-mile journey to the Sea of Japan to reconnect with American forces. The journey would take 13 days. Cut off from support, the Marines broke out of the encirclement and made a fighting withdrawal through 10 Chinese infantry divisions, while inflicting crippling losses on the Chinese.

The courage shown by the Marines and sailors at the Chosin Reservoir was an example of their resolve to fight against what seemed like impossible odds. The attitude of those who served at the “Frozen Chosin” set an example that is still remembered by Marines and sailors both young and old.

It is adversity that demands valor, and trial that demonstrates the highest levels of brotherhood. The Marines at the Chanjin Reservoir, pulled together to insure the success of the withdrawal.  What many people might have considered to be the darkest two weeks in Marine Corps history, may have in fact, become the Marine Corp's DEFINING MOMENT. With their backs to the wall, the men of the 1st Marine Division pulled together to accomplish the impossible.  Their teamwork cemented a band of brothers who came to call themselves "The Chosin Few"

On December 4th, Project Appleseed remembers and honors the valor and courage of the "Chosin Few" with a special Appleseed at Racine County Line Rifle Club. We invite everyone, and especially Marines (young and old), to come join us. Anyone one who scores Rifleman at this event will be awarded a special "frozen" Rifleman badge in honor of the "Chosin Few". We hope to see you there!


Now I have to admit, this is darn creative. I am not going to encourage the other states in the region to copy this ^-^, but what an idea!

Whether or not this becomes another sell out, kudos go to Brightsparc and team WI for coming up with this!  O0

Team Ohio seems unstoppable! Great Lakes Region - # of Sell Outs Contest
« Reply #45 on: September 12, 2016, 02:27:24 PM »
Team Ohio just sold out Gibsonburg, OH October 22-23, 2016 and are 2 away from a sell out in Liberty Center on September 24-25, 2016 (22/24). This puts them at 12 for the year and they can score a bakers dozen within days. After that the only event in Ohio not sold out for the rest of the year will be Newark on October 1-2, 2016, and even that may be a sell out too. TREMENDOUS!

Team Michigan is 1 away from a sell out at Fenton on October 1-2, 2016 to overtake Kentucky. Michigan has some great opportunities coming up in Lapeer on September 17 (5/10) and Holland on October 22-23 (25/32).

Meanwhile, Kentucky is 6 away from a sell out in Paducah, on October 1-2 looking to fight off Michigan's attack. They also have a great opportunity to sell out a KD event in Park City, on October 8-9, 2016

Janir and Team Indiana only have 1 event through the end of the year that is not a sell out, Nappanee on September 24-25. Last chance for an Appleseed in Indiana.

Team Wisconsin has been adding additional events to their schedule are working on possibilities in Racine, Eagle, and River Falls.

"It ain't over 'til it's over"

Hats off to all teams, you've made this year a huge success. Keep up the great work!

Team Ohio has now SOLD OUT Liberty Center on September 24-25, 2016. An awesome accomplishment from an awesome team! :bow:

Team Michigan is still just 3 away from a sell out at Fenton on October 1-2, 2016, and has a great opportunity coming up in Holland on October 22-23 (30/32), with just 2 spots left. This would put out them ahead of Kentucky and challenge Wisconsin for their spot on the leadership board.

Team Kentucky seems to have stalled at 5 away from a sell out in Paducah, on October 1-2, and 6 away from a sell out in Park City, on October 8-9, 2016. I hope they can come out of the doldrums they are in.

Martin and Team Wisconsin are looking for a sell out at McMiller on October 8-9, and they tell me there is a lot of buzz about not only their October Racine event which will likely conclude in a Sell Out, but also a lot of buzz about their Special "Frozen Chosin" event in December that they also expect to be sold out. Will it be enough to catch Ohio?

Keep up the great work teams, let's finish strong!

WOW! It is getting crazy here at the end.

Michigan has gone on a tear! Selling out 3 more events bringing them up to EIGHT.

Wisconsin, not to be beaten by Michigan, has also just sold out Racine October 15-16 ×2, for a DOUBLE SELL OUT.

Ohio has raised the ceiling on their Piqua and Marion events to accommodate more people. Corvette says Team Ohio will figure out a way to fit them all in.

With not enough events left in the other states, it looks like this has become a 3 way race for the lead! Who will lead this region, Michigan, Ohio, or Wisconsin. State pride is on the line!!  :cool2:

Great News! Illinois sold out Bonfield, on October 15-16, 2016 adding another Sell Out to their tally. Great job by Sis and Team Illinois! Outstanding work.  O0

I don't know if anyone can catch Ohio in 1st place, but the battle for second place rages on.

Team Michigan Sold Out 3 events in October to bring them to 8 thus far.

Martin himself went down to Racine in southern Wisconsin and shoot bossed a Double Sell Out in Racine bringing them to 9 for the year.

Michigan has 2 more events for the year, Lapeer on November 12-13, 2016, and Lapeer, on December 3, 2016; so they have chances to get 2 more sell outs this year. Meanwhile Wisconsin has 1 more event this year.

Who will be victorious?  :cool2:
