The Next North Dakota Appleseed
« on: June 04, 2009, 10:34:36 PM »
We had a great first shoot in North Dakota. What a great group of people. There was a lot interest, and talk about another North Dakota Appleseed. All we need is a good firing line and a solid burn. There was plenty of talk about friends or family that would really benefit from an Appleseed. So let's see it happen. If you need some help or direction just ask, and we will do everything possibly to help out.

I look forward to seeing another North Dakota Appleseed on the schedule soon. This time it should be staffed with some new North Dakota IITs.

Alex, I had a great time too, and am planning on getting the orange hat soon; I'm just reading everything on the forums about being one first!  Appleseed in Leeds was AWESOME and you did a great job as a shoot boss!  Hope I get the chance to work with you as an IIT soon.

I just googled Bottineau; wow!  Now that is ALMOST Canada!

If the people who show to this Appleseed are anything like the ones who showed up to the first; there won't be any problem with getting rifleman. :)

That's what I've heard.
If ND is as good at the Seventh Step, as they are at the first Six; CA had better prepare for an invasion from the East!
Alexander the Great, conquered the 'known world' with an army of 40,000 men.  They, in their own way, must have been 'Men who know very much, what they are about.'

I like to tell people that the few North Dakotans who showed up at the Appleseed here were the ones that still needed marksmanship instruction, the rest of of the populace think Appleseed is just too low level. :))

We will see very shortly after the first Red Coat how many people need our "low level" program. ;)
