Ariel WA, WMGC, April 28-29 AAR

The first 2018 event at WMGC is next week.  The weather looks decent on the long term forecast.  There is still room on the line.  There is still time to sign up here: https://appleseedinfo.org/schedule/?qstate=WA&state=Washington

Many thanks to all who came out last weekend to hear about our heritage and learn some marksmanship.  What a fine group to work with!  Thanks also to Wolverton Mountain Gun Club for hosting us.  And the weather was so much better than the forecast!

Congratulations to new riflemen, Adam, Kolton and Mike AKA Bandaid, (who also cleared a Redcoat). Congratulations to Kimber Custom who is officially a Distinguished Rifleman.

Moriah, you are knocking at the door with a 194.  Some dry practice will help get you there.

Our two young patriots Josie and Abe hung in there the whole weekend and got the patch to prove it.
 
Everyone showed improvement throughout the weekend despite equipment problems and loose scopes.  I really hope I will see you all again at a future Appleseed.  The next one a WMGC is Sept 8-9.

Pictures are here: https://janerprojectappleseed.shutterfly.com/pictures/8  (I hope)

Whit has other Rifleman pictures to post.

What a fantastic event! I truly enjoyed meeting all the new shooters as well as seeing some new Riflemen!

Moriah....a Riflewoman persists.....come back to another event and I think you'll be able to pull it all together.

It was an extra special treat to have our ever-faithful NW Regional Coordinator aka Kimber Custom as an actual shooter.  He proved he's still got it......Mr. Distinguished.

Here are the pictures of Bandaid and Kimber.

Janer, you always run a great shoot.
