Piru, CA April 18-19, 2009 Appleseed
« on: March 26, 2009, 05:40:49 PM »
It has been a great year at Mt. Appleseed. We are about to have our one year Anniversary as a Designated Appleseed Range (DAR) out at Wes Thompson's Range in Piru, CA. The first ever Appleseed at Piru, CA. was held April 19-20, 2008.

Don't miss this once in a lifetime opportunity to test your skills against the AQT (army qualification target) and learn what it takes to move from being an American rifle owner to becoming an American Rifleman! Sure there will be other Appleseeds, but only one at the one year anniversary of the DAR range in Piru.

Bring your friends, your family, your co-workers and immerse yourself in the heritage that is Rifle Marksmanship in America!!!!

Ladies shoot FREE, under 21's shoot FREE, active military and guard with ID shoot FREE in 2009!

Hone those shooting skills, make new friends, and get back in touch with our Rifleman Heritage.

Get in those pre-reg's for the upcoming April 18-19, 2009 Piru, CA Appleseed. This gives us an idea of how many instructors to have available to be able to properly cover the line, let alone get an accurate count of targets, t-shirts, hand-outs, etc.

So who is coming to the Piru, CA Appleseed April 18-19, 2009 and have you pre-reg'ed yet? Remember....it costs $45 for one day and $70 for two days if you pre-reg and it now costs $50 for one day and $80 for two days if you don't pre-reg.

To make it even more attractive to attend this Appleseed, we are offering a Free Prize Draw to win a Challenge Lifetime Membership which allows you to attend any of Front Sight's two and four-day courses for Handgun, Shotgun, Rifle, Uzi sub-machine gun and M16 Select fire for Free for the rest of your life!

To purchase this life-time membership retail from the Front Sight website would cost you between $7,000 to $12,000 depending on your payment choice.

Everyone in attendance will receive a free draw ticket simply for attending any of the nine April 19th 2009 California Appleseed events. Since Piru is one of those, it qualifies.

Oh, I'm coming.  Already took the time off from work. 

My wife is coming.  Already got the baby-sitter arranged for both days.

My buddy the re-enactor is coming.  Already has his 10-22 dialed in.  His wife would be shooting too, but she got stuck as the baby-sitter.

My buddy the hillman* is coming.  Just not quite sure yet if he is bringing the whole family.

We're all pre-registered.  Counting the days.   

*he lives in the mountains of northern Ventura county and calls the rest of us 'flatlanders'.  Since he had a bear attack his garage last fall I don't argue with him.

We live just down the road in Fillmore and can help non-locals find lodging, restaurants, etc.

I shot IDPA Pistol with my son today down the road at ISI. Handed out a bunch of SWAT and fliers and talked up the April 18/19 weekend so you should get some from that. Some people took a bunch of fliers for "friends in their group"

Cheers

Webdancer, Rick, and MrBill worked down at Costa Mesa today at the Crossroads of the West Gun Show today handing out flyers for Corona, Piru, and San Bernardino, with a few for Dulzura. I know a couple that work the show who are planning on attending Dulzura. I will give them the rest of the Dulzura flyers. I gave some San Bernardino flyers to the man that was working the Lytle Creek booth.

Webdancer said they had lots of interest.

THANK YOU all at the booth; WD, Rick, SS, Bill, Bob and the rest of AS Logistics Command, West.
Great work telling folks about the upcoming Liberty celebration, and sorting out so many target boxes. 
The spirit and enthusiasm for this great program stand out.  Well done, all.

Hey there!  I'm signed up for Piru 4/18-19.  I have some medical issues I'm dealing with that could affect getting up and down but I'm going to show up anyway just because this is a special weekend.   I'll bring my rifle & ammo in case I can get in a few rounds.  I'm supposed to have a scoped (Mr. Mcgoo!) .22 waiting for me there.  Maybe I'll get to shoot that too.  Looking forward to seeing all there.  Layer-up for cold mornings.  Keep your powder dry!

Welcome SKYTTE. If you are referring to our conversation at the Ventura Gun Show, I have the scoped 10-22 for you. Do you need me to bring .22 ammo, or did you manage to pick some up?

See you out there!
