Las Vegas, NV AAR December 12th-13th
« on: December 13, 2020, 10:23:06 PM »
Another great Appleseed on the books. Strong winds and dust plagued day one but as we all know, Riflemen Persist!
Day two was rather cold with cloud cover but at least the 30mph gusts were gone.
It was great to see families coming out to the event together. Many made the long trek from the Grand Canyon State.
The longest distance traveled award, however, goes to Captain who came out from Colorado to help out.

Rifle marksmanship steadily improved throughout the weekend and everyone had a great time.

2020 ended with a bang by welcoming 3 new riflemen! Two of which also received our Luther Blanchard Patch.
Congratulations to Noelani, Hugh, and Kirk!

Thanks to all the instructors that volunteered and the Appleseeders that took the time to come to the event.

We'll see you next year!

I'm once again impressed with the skill and instruction provided by the team. I am so excited 😁 to attend my next Appleseed. This time I was able to bring my daughter and nephews who were overwhelmed with excitement about the history and marksmanship lessons. Truly made for lasting impressions on their vacation.

Thank you all!

This was another fantastic event put on by SB Wangdoodle and hosted by the Desert Sportsman’s Rifle & Pistol Club! Everyone of us in attendance learned more about putting rounds on target and embraced our shared American heritage of liberty. We had youth shooters who all made enormous progress and either scored Rifleman or were "in the hunt". We also had a great group of enthusiastic adult shooters who persisted through the weekend with several new Rifleman being revealed when the AQTs began.

Thanks to everyone who came out - such great folks make the drive from Colorado well worth the effort.
