« on: August 09, 2016, 10:58:36 PM »
 Just thinking ahead here.

 April19, 2017 is a Wednesday.
 Setting up for 2017 which Weekend will be  the "Patriots Day" shoot?

 April 15 & 16 or April 22 & 23?


ETA: Didn't realize Easter was the 16th.

The official date has not been set yet, but if I were to take an educated guess, I would guess April 22 & 23.

Saturday April 15 is Tax day and Sunday April 16 is Easter. Not the best weekend for Appleseed attendance; April 22 & 23 looks like a much better choice.

"Our forefathers gave us a better way to refresh the Tree of Liberty. If we give our blood and sweat now,  willingly, by using the political and social processes they secured for us with their lives, maybe our own Posterity will never have to unwillingly spill their blood and tears to re-secure their Liberty.

Yep, I am setting up for April 22-23 as the "April 19th Weekend"
If ye love wealth better than liberty,the tranquility of servitude better than the animating contest of freedom,go home from us.We ask not your counsels or arms.Crouch down and lick the hands which feed you.May your chains set lightly upon you and may posterity forget that ye were our countrymen.

We set ours up here in Oklahoma for the 15th and 16th.  That's what the range had available, and that's what the Shoot Boss decided to go with.  We have quite a few pre-regs, so having it on the holiday weekend apparently didn't deter too many... though I did have a couple folks email me that they were disappointed.  Oh well, that's why we have other shoots on the schedule. 
"Of liberty I would say that, in the whole plenitude of its extent, it is unobstructed action according to our will. But rightful liberty is unobstructed action according to our will within limits drawn around us by the equal rights of others. I do not add 'within the limits of the law,' because law is often but the tyrant's will, and always so when it violates the right of an individual."
-- Thomas Jefferson to Isaac H. Tiffany, 1819
