Project Appleseed in Region 3
« on: February 26, 2014, 09:23:59 AM »
I wanted to make sure everyone here knows about Project Appleseed and has the opportunity to attend one near them. Please PM me if you have any questions and I will do my best to answer.

What the RWVA (Revolutionary War Veterans Association) is all about:

History and Heritage

Project Appleseed is an activity of The Revolutionary War Veterans Association, a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization, dedicated to teaching every American our shared heritage and history as well as traditional rifle marksmanship skills.  Our volunteer instructors travel across the country teaching those who attend about the difficult choices, the heroic actions, and the sacrifices that the Founders made on behalf of modern Americans, all of whom are their posterity.

Our heritage program vividly portrays the Battles of Lexington and Concord with the kind of care and immediacy that is absent from most formal schooling. Modern listeners are confronted with the danger, the fear, and the heartbreaking separations that arose out of the choices made on April 19th, 1775. They are also reminded of the marksmanship skills and masterful organization that ultimately helped set the colonists on the path to success. Those who attend gain a better understanding of the fundamental choices faced by our ancestors as they began to set the stage for the nation we now enjoy.

I really want to participate in an Appleseed. I would also like for my sons to participate. We all shoot and this seems like a great opportunity for training and fellowship with each other. After all, our great-great...........grandfather was in the Revolution - hung by Tories in the Old 96th in South Carolina - thus my disdain for British food and desire to fire a rifle.

I wish MS could be a bit more like FL... 3 events in the state... at a single location... in a year. Really? Como, MS is also just outside the middle of nowhere and should really be listed in TN. :)

Unfortunately, it may be too late to get any more MS events on the calendar for the year, but Project Appleseed is always looking for new venues if you know a place. Maybe we could get something set up for next year.

Also, look around at nearby states and there may be one in another state that is still in driving distance.

And don't forget the information I listed above is subject to change
(like Alabama added 2 more events since I posted the info and Tennessee added 6!)

Thanks for posting this Roswell.  I may be able to make Pensacola or even Tallahassee (closer than Como!) for one of these dates.  This really is something I need to finish up, after scoring so painfully close back in 2012.

Alan,
Maybe we could pulse people who have 25yds and a "good" backstop in South-Central MS. I access to a site with the length and facilities, but not a full-up range style backstop or the width to deal with 30 peeps.

backstop is important, but width not so much. Keep in mind, people can share mats and shoot in flights. I have done it a couple times and it works well

We fit 47 people on this line with them sharing mats and shooting in flights...



From the site...

http://www.appleseedinfo.org/host_appleseed.html

Quote
What we ask of our Hosts:

A safe facility, with adequate parking and restroom facilities.
Volunteer help in setting up simple target backers and obtaining cardboard from a local supplier, usually free of charge.
Some help with local promotions, RWVA will provide a master flyer that can be copied and distributed to local businesses and community centers.

Got it. That's why I made my backstop comment. In the location where I typically shoot, there isn't a backstop... we're just shooting downhill in a pasture that flattens out at 80 yds. So the flat ground acts as a backstop. But I wouldn't put inexperienced shooters there.

I'll be on the lookout.

Angus, a couple of years ago there was an Appleseed held at Woolmarket (just north of Biloxi), jpbearit (he's sorta still around) and I both shot at that one.  There's also a new range/school just getting open near Picayune.  Something more central, maybe up near Hattiesburg would pull in more MS people though.  Will keep digging around.

Picayune, while almost as far away from me as Como... just seems closer and more comfortable (I'm allergic to Oxford).

We have a group of about a dozen friends going to the one in Manchester TN this weekend. Why I even managed to get my wife to participate in it since it's close to the April 19, 1775 anniversary and she loves American history. They have scheduled some period dressed actors with black powder rifles to participate and educate as well.

Sounds like a great event! Sold out too!
Please report back, I'd love to hear about it. (although I will definitely check out the After Action Report on the Project Appleseed Forum).

I'll be in Dublin, GA this weekend at the event there. We still have plenty of spots!
