Just finished up a shoot closer to home this past weekend. The weather was excellent, much better than the "Deathseed" in June that was the last shoot at this location. We ended up with three new riflemen/women and two of them stepped up and took orange hats. Fantastic, since we're trying to build up the instructor base in this area! We've been having to pull folks in from neighboring states for every shoot.
I didn't do much instruction this weekend, since I spent most of my time first being trained to be Line Boss and then running the line on my own. It was fun and easy, especially once I made the connection that it is just like being a stage manager for a theatre production.
I also jumped into the history portion of Appleseed, presenting the Second Strike. I'd worked pretty hard on it (with some excellent help from Chris) and I was very pleased with how it went. I forgot a few things I had planned to do, but overall it worked out very well - so well, in fact, that instead of just telling one strike at the next shoot I'm going to, I may well be telling two!
