San Antonio, TX AAR - Dec 13-14, 2019
« on: December 17, 2019, 11:07:38 AM »
Well, another GREAT shoot in the books for San Antonio  :beer:! Two gorgeous (if not almost too hot) days in December! We had so many shooters we had to reserve two adjacent bays, but we had plenty of instructors, and it went off without a hitch! Thanks to all of the instructors who signed up. I definitely couldn't have done it without you! Speaking of instructors, we added Paul to our IIT ranks, and he did a fantastic job (see pic below)! We also awarded a 50-shoot pin to Jerry (see pic below) who has been in the program since I was in kindergarten! No, not really, but he was there when I received my Rifleman patch :).

As for the shooters, man were they awesome! They listened and continued to improve both days! They loved the history, and actually asked questions while we were telling it. I don't have that happen too often, but it sure shows an enthusiastic audience! While scores continued to improve, we only awarded one patch, but it was well-deserved. Congratulations (see pic below) to Jacob who shot a 213  :snipersmi and proceeded to shoot another Rifleman score after that! And Crystal was ohhhhhh so close with a 195  :wb:. As soon as she obtains her Rifleman score she's going to take an orange hat  ^:)^, and I'm almost sure that's going to happen in January!  :F

All said they would definitely be back--even the crew of four who drove all the way from the Dallas-Ft. Worth area!

Huzzah!

Congratulations Jacob on your Rifleman Score of 213!!!!  Very impressive to do on your first Appleseed event.  We are certainly happy you came and hope you had a good time.  Please tell your friends and family about Appleseed!!!  We need to get more people to spread the word!  Hope to see you back sometime soon to get your Known Distance qualification and also your Distinguished Rifleman Patch!!!

Crystal has made some quick improvements!!! She is a strong shooter for sure!  Cannot wait to see her and her husband back on the line in January!

Thank you again Jerry for all of you hard work and dedication to Appleseed!

Best Regards,

Sounds like you had a great shoot!  I sure wish we were closer and could participate more often with y'all!  What a great group of instructors you have which makes for great shoots!  Hope to see you all again sometime soon!  Congrats to the new rifleman and future riflewoman!!
ACCEPT YOUR WOBBLE!

It's not about perfection -- it's about progress!!

I LOVE this stuff!
