« on: December 20, 2008, 11:43:46 PM »
The Mid Carolina Rifle Club has agreed to host the first full Appleseed South Carolina.

The dates will be May 30-31, 2009.

It'll soon be listed on Eventbrite. Thanks to all of the people who helped with the mini. You did your jobs, and we got the approval today.

Stay tuned.

Someone around here uses the sig line "Well done is better than well said".  That being the case; Well Done!
Mid Carolina Rifle Club is within a reasonable drive for anyone in the state and I'll personally ensure that its very well promoted down here in the Lowcountry.  I only regret that I will have moved up to the Northeast before the date of the event, and won't be able to be there personally.  There's room for a lot of shooters on the line at MCRC though, so I'll send you as many as I can.

     ff, you simply need to move Guam up on the sched a bit. The race is to see who will be last to hold an AS - not the last to schedule one.

     As long as Guam has one before the end of May, SC can still be in the running to win the race!

     Good job, Talon! Even if you're no doubt bloodied and bruised by the effort! Those South Carolinians know who to fight! Even if it is, to stay on the couch! (I still say those hotblooded SC ancestors are spinning in their graves - and will continue to do so - one Appleseed does not a saved nation or state make...)

SC might just be one of those places where folks can go to AS and then after have a nice couple days on the beach following the event. "Honey, get in here. Appleseed just broke through in SC. Wanna go to the beach for a few days?"

Of course, Guam would probably be pretty nice for that too!

   So I reckon this means I'll have to go back there to personally witness this? It could be a hoax on the level of faking the moon landing.  ;)

  Good job Talon, Boltgun, and others! Having lived there for 26 years, I can tell you Fred's right. They'll fight like tigers or even gamecocks to keep from getting of that couch!   Take THAT Guam!  O0

I contacted my friend in SC and he said he will look into finding a range. :)

Somehow I missed this when it first posted.  It still isn't on the instructor schedule.

It shall be. Plan on it.

Thanks to DuaneRN for completing the paperwork process and helping to get this shoot officially listed. We ran in to an unexpected date shift which was taken in stride.

The new dates are May 2nd and 3rd, 2009.

How many people have registered for this shoot? I registered me and my son this week and was wondering how many others had signed up.

Only 3 have pre-registered so far, but it's still early.  You can help change this by printing and distributing the flyers found on the EIP here - http://appleseedinfo.org/smf/index.php?topic=5846.0
"Unhappy it is, though, 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 a race of slaves.  Sad alternative!  But can a virtuous man hesitate in his choice?" - George Washington - from a letter to a close friend after the events of April 19, 1775

"There is no nation on earth powerful enough to accomplish our (the United States) overthrow.  Our destruction, should it come at all, will be from another quarter.  From the inattention of the people to the concerns of their government, from their carelessness and negligence, I must confess that I do apprehend some danger.  I fear that they may place too implicit a confidence in their public servants, and fail properly to scrutinize their conduct; that in this way they may be made the dupes of designing men, and become the instruments of their own undoing." - Daniel Webster, June 1, 1837
