Thanks for a great Appleseed!!!
« on: April 20, 2009, 02:18:23 PM »
Hey, I just wanted to say thank you to Pat, Cindy, and Greg for putting on an outstanding Appleseed in Oxford this weekend!  They really personalized and drove home the sacrifices the colonists made to free this country we all take for granted today.  I also wanted to thank them for taking a special interest in helping my wife succeed in getting her Rifleman patch on her very first Appleseed (and before me)!  If the rest of the Appleseed instructors are anything like these three, this program is guaranteed to reach the hearts and minds of America.  We look forward to being at the next Appleseed and getting my rifleman's patch and orange hat to match my wife's!   O0

I'll second that.  Prior to the weekend, almost all my shooting has been done off the bench.   I really gained an appreciation of how much harder it is without one.  I'll need to practice some more before I can reach rifleman level, but I did improve my shooting over the course of the weekend.

I'll definitely try to make it out again during the summer, and maybe bring a few more people along with me next time.

I wish we could have stayed for day 2 but Grandma's birthday dinner won out. I think that the next time I show up, I might get a rifleman's patch too. After my son started usnig the shooting tips, his groups were getting smaller. It was a blast and we will be back again.

I attended the very first Appleseed in Kansas this past weekend. Thanks to Dad & Cindy & Greg, many of us learned much about riflemanship, and quite abit about the begining of this great Country of ours. Because of people like Joe Rankin letting us use his land, & the superb instruction we recived, all of us came away with a better understanding of our rifles & the Heros that came before us. I look forward to the next Appleseed.
