Any chance of a Winterseed?
« on: December 30, 2020, 05:56:32 PM »
We are coming up on the end of December and I was wondering if there has been any talk of organizing a Winterseed? Given that I don't own a rifle range, is there any way I can help if someone decides to organize one?

I cannot help you make it happen, but interested in one.
What part of Minnesota are you in?

I'm in Mankato. Couple ranges near me but I don't think any of them have done an Appleseed before. I mentioned Project Appleseed at Caribou Gun Club in Le Sueur and they had never heard of it.

We have an event on the schedule in Racine, WI on February 27th. It will most likely qualify as a Winterseed based on temperature alone (regardless of any precipitation). It is a 6 hour drive for you though...

It's my understanding that many clubs are finalizing their 2021 calendars, so it might be hard to book a range at this point. But the worst anyone could say is "no."

I looked at the AAR board, and it looks like Southern Minnesota Sportmen's Club in Rochester had an event as recently as 2016. Might be worth messaging any of the people from that thread and seeing what's up. https://appleseedinfo.org/smf/index.php?topic=48361.0

You may also want to reach out to Taylor. He's pretty busy, but he runs some events in eastern MN.
