2020 Appleseed Planning for Iowa
« on: August 31, 2019, 01:42:23 PM »
Ames Ikes is asking for 2020 dates.  I'm providing them the following:

  • April 18 & 19, 2020
  • August 8 & 9, 2020

I'll add more dates here for other venues as they get figured out.

We should try to get back on Ankeny Ike's calendar. A spring and fall shoot at Big Springs would be a good goal.

Birmingham went great they have already asked us back for next September. Wayne and I discussed a spring shoot in Bloomfield (May or June) and a fall shoot in Birmingham. There is camping at Birmingham including trailer hookups.

Just for hoots and hollers...
How about a dead-of-winter event somewhere?
As in have to use a snowblower to clear the shooting lanes to the targets.
And, no, I'm not kidding.

We have often talked about a Winterseed in Ames, Ia.  However, that is High School BB season and my weekends are frequently booked.  But, there may be other Iowa shoot bosses in other locations who might take this on.

Winterset could host one in Jan or Feb. Heated club house. Getting shooters is the main issue.

Burnett - how many shooters can you bring?

Uh, one; but I'm a sh*tload of fun.  O0
I can check with a couple of other guys that live near there.
Do you guys actually have snow that far south anymore?
