Seven patriots braved the pouring rain for Saturday's portion of Appleseed - including a soon-to-be 10 year old celebrating her birthday! Fortunately for all, the hard rain stopped about the time we finished setting up the line, but the weather remained cold and misty the rest of the day. The fire-hose of instruction was on full-force though, both on the line and back under cover for the history portion. We were also fortunate enough to have a reenactor come and talk to us about Kings Mountain. A batch of hot chocolate revived everyone for the afternoon and at the end of the day we were pleased to welcome a new orange hat into the instructor ranks!
On Sunday one brave shooter returned and was rewarded for his efforts with bright sunshine and 60 degree temperatures! His determination, attention to detail, and good nature in the face of six instructors all trying to help further rewarded him just before lunch with a Rifleman's score on the AQT. I cannot imagine anything better for my first official act as a red hat than shaking his hand!
There are a lot of upcoming shoots in the South East! Please come out an join us at an Appleseed, Ladyseed, or Libertyseed near you!
