Save the Date: IBC on January 20-21, 2018 (AL/TN/GA)
« on: December 09, 2017, 11:57:53 PM »
Appleseed Family,
 
I want to make you aware of an upcoming Instructor Boot Camp at Calera, Alabama on Jan. 20-21. It is FREE to the Appleseed volunteer cadre, of course, and is designed to enable all of us to help work Appleseed events with even greater simplicity and precision.  Those who have not worked an event for a while may find it a fine refresher and for those who are seasoned instructors, it may be useful to review a bit.

While this event is scheduled for the tri-state area (AL/GA/TN), border raiders are welcome to join us! 

Who can come?  It's for Instructors-in-Training, Instructors, Applecore, Shoot Bosses, and even crusty old Senior Instructors!  If you're thinking about becoming an instructor and want to know what it's all about - come on out.  :)


Stuff you need to know:
 
1.  The purpose of the IBC is to help our instructors grow and become better teachers, away from the pressure of being in front of students.  If you are an instructor, instructor in training, or interested in being a Project Appleseed Instructor - Sign up!
 
2.  The IBC is free to attend.  No cost. Sign up!
 
3.  Lodging.  Double Tap has great air conditioned bunk houses and classrooms.  Clean sheets, hot showers, real bathrooms, a big grill, campfire, and a 25m range on site (if you've been to Ramseur, you'll appreciate the plumbing!  :D  )  Call Kim at Double Tap for lodging reservations.
 
4.  Don't let the name "Boot Camp" intimidate you.  This is a gentlemans course.  No push-ups, no hazing, no yelling.   Most of our IBC exercises will be in small groups.
 
5.  Attendance at this event will qualify you for your BOOT CAMP rocker.  Sign up!
 
6.  If you've not attended an IBC in the last 12 months, please sign up as a student.  Sign up!  We'll need volunteers for the instructor team, so please send a PM if you can help.

7.  There is an optional 1-day KD event on Friday, January 19th at Talladega CMP.  It is for instructors only and free to attend, modest range fees apply.  Details on the COF aren't pounded out yet, but anticipate 4 AQTs that day.  After, we'll roll to Double Tap to grill out for dinner.  Burgers and brats will be provided.   :)

8.  There will be at least one Waffle House breakfast!  Life can't get better than that!

9.  An IBC can qualify you for accelerated promotions!

 
Please pass this along to anyone you think may be interested.  The IBC is the method we use to insure everyone is on the same page when we teach using the Appleseed way: SIMPLICITY and PRECISION.  Please join us and invite others. You are part of an elite group - the best rifle instructors in the country.  Come help us all improve as we spread the message of Liberty.
 

This is going to be a great event! Hope to see all of you there... so sign up^:)^

Due to some Eventbrite challenges, the sign-up link for the Friday Known Distance event (right before the IBC) has changed.

If you want to shoot electronic KDs at CMP Talladega, sign up here:  https://goappleseednow.org/?event=talladega-al-instructor-kd-january-19-2018
