Battle Road
« on: September 24, 2019, 06:07:01 PM »
For the last couple years I have listened to many of our instructors talk about how awesome it would be to do the Battle Road Tour.   I too have a desire to take the time and do the tour.  So, I would like to  suggest the possibility of a Ohio AS Instructor  group trip up to Concord over a long weekend sometime in the fall of 2020.  I believe it would be an awesome time and as a group we could get better pricing on lodging.  It would be far enough ahead to allow time to get it on your schedule and allow time to budget for it.  I just wanted to throw the idea out there and see if there would be enough interest to give it serious consideration.

Look forward to everyone's feedback!!
Thanks!

CJ,

We have talked about this and I am most certainly in for this.  I am looking forward to the trip.

I definitely want to do this and would be interested. I do have two things that would keep me from participating. The first: I told my family I want to see Battle Road a few months ago and they are semi-onboard as my daughter was wanting to do another historical trip (she really enjoyed Williamsburg). We were thinking about going up for Spring Break in 2020. The second: I am very interested in taking the Appleseed Garand Armorer's Course at CMP Anniston next Fall. With my normal Appleseed commitments, doing both without the family may not be politically correct.  ;)

Hammbone, I see no reason to limit it to just AS people.  Bring wife and family if you want to make it a family event.  I certainly would try to get my wife to come.  We are in the concept phase so don't rule anything out.

Here here....
The hardest distance to shoot is the six inches between your ears.  It gets easier when you get out of your own way.  Self doubt and negative self talk have no place on the firing line.  Once a shot is gone... good or bad, it is gone.   Focus on the next one. Make forty good first shots.

Gah! You're killing me. I'd love to do it, just not sure 2020 would be in the cards.

If border raiders are welcome, me and Captain America (we’re up in Michigan) would be interested in the details.
