Any plans for Appleseed shoots beyond May?
« on: April 06, 2009, 06:44:16 PM »
I'm bummed that the April/May dates just won't work for me or my 2 older kids & wife and am wondering if there have been any thoughts for an Appleseed shoot later in the year?  I'm a BLGC member, but would be happy to attend at another range if a shoot is setup.

Thanks!

batman - FranktownKid is working on getting June/July/etc. confirmed and he'll post info as soon as he does.  Also, Colorado Sam tried to set up a mini Appleseed (single range day with local Appleseeders) last weekend at BLGC, but the weather didn't cooperate.  So, in addition to the schedule page posted by eaglescouter, go here.  And at the top of the list of threads (on the right side) is a menu that reads:

[MARK READ][NOTIFY][NEW TOPIC][POST NEW POLL]

Click on [Notify] and you will be subscribed to the Colorado board - which means you'll receive an email whenever a new thread is started for Colorado (like an announcement for a mini Appleseed or confirmed dates for summer Appleseeds).  Welcome aboard!  O0

Glad to see another BLGC member on the board.  O0

There will be more shoots in Colorado this year. Franktown Kid is trying to set it up so there is a shoot atleast once a month. All we need is a base of local Instructor's so we dont have to keep flying them in all the time.

I wonder if we could try again for a mini shoot before the 19th ::)

Franktown_kid presented Appleseed to Frontier gun club (Falcon/Fountain) and they liked it. Timing is still to be determined but a late summer start is a good guess. So with a little luck we'll have two ranges in the general area going this year.

Thanks guys!  Good to know that the wheels are turning for more shoots (beyond the ones through May).  My new (to me) M1A just came in last night .. all the more reason to go have some fun and improve my skills.  Any word on how many juniors have shown interest thus far?  I know my 8 & 11 year old kiddos are excited (my 4 year old would be there if I'd let him!).

Thanks!

Congrats O0 I cant wait to get mine.

Theres no definitive word yet on how many younger shooters we'll have there. I'll be bringing a few highschoolers along. But we wont see how youngsters (Can i say that if I'm 18?  ;D)many actually show till the shoot starts.

Sam, since I can't remember that far back to 18, I guess that DOES make you a youngster, at least to me!

Also I seem to recall Franktown Kid saying there were either three or six more shoots at Ramah beyond May.

How many of you will be at the April 18/19 Ramah shoot? I'll have an M1 out if someone wants to try a few rounds through it.

Hey y'all.  I'm new here and wanted to follow up on this.

Considering that May is sold out, is there an update on this?  I'm coming to the May 30,31 shoot, but I've got some buddies that would like to go also.  Thanks.

Even if the May shoot is sold out, show up and bring your friends we can always find a way to squeeze a few more shooters on the line.

Shoots past May are being developed as we speak. Colorado's goal this year is to have an Appleseed a month. If you want more shoots grab a bucket O0 and contact Franktownkid about what you can do to help out.

Yep, we got another berm for the 30-31 May Appleseed near Ramah Colorado! So Y'all sign up.

We're looking for 60 - 70 shooters now.

We're looking for good weather too!

After May none till end of August - but we're working on that too.

FranktownKid, I'll be at the May shoot with my Orange Hat (RifleWoman and Nickel already know).  Also, as a heads up, Eventbrite is still showing sold out for May, so I'm just going to register my fiance Sat AM at the shoot.

It's not still showing sold out, it's showing sold out AGAIN... And that's with an added berm.  Appleseed is growing in CO  O0

I think we're gonna be hoppin'....this should be great!!

When these attendees spread the word around, we'll need the Frontier Club range up and running by July and every month thereafter as well!

Any word from efforts up north at the Ft. Collins area club (Northern CO Rod & Gun I think)? Trin Tragula was going to talk to them and had some reason to be optimistic. We need a northern location to complement what will be two central ones here, not to mention something in the Denver area...

Makes me glad to see Apple seed growing before I leave O0 it'll be interesting seeing the difference from right before I leave to right after I get back.

It's sounding like we'll have a great shoot. Maybe the weather will even cooperate this time around &)
