Alton, IL 4/18 - 19
« on: April 03, 2009, 07:45:34 PM »
All,

Just spoke to John Ross about his place. He doesn't know much about Appleseed but I explained what I could. Seems there are several places we could set up the line (he doesn't own the entire quarry) so he will meet us there on Friday to set up.

He is ok with the idea of a hammer drill and drill rod or rebar stuck in the holes. Wanted to make sure we had power. Compressor on the truck right? Who is bringing the wire?

He thought if it rained that we might have some problems, but, again, if we get set up in the right place it shouldn't be too bad.

No shelter at all there. Can someone bring some canopies for lunch and history?

We should also consider bringing extra mats and tarps. I'm sure that not all of the shooters will realize that they will be laying on solid rock for several hours.

Backers: anyone have a supply of cardboard? I think we will have 30 shooters max, so need 90 - 100 feet of cardboard. I can get some binder clips.

I sent the supply request to Fred today. Everyone should bring what they have in case of a SNAFU.

Anything I haven't thought of?

Let's use this thread to organize our activities over the coming weeks.

I have re-bar and wire, were you going with the shortline and relays or the long line TC?

I have sent PSA's and Press Releases to area media, hopefully they will be on air within the week. As Pappy said, it will also be pushed at Chillicothe Gun Show.

Just a thought, John has a website, what are the odds he will advertise it there?

Ok, who has the hammer drill with 1/2" bit and a power supply for it?

Who has a tent/canopy?

Who hasn't let everyone that they know, know that they will be an IIT at JOHN ROSS"S 1ST ANNUAL APPLESEED SHOOT!!!!

Let's pump it up a bit folks.
