The all-volunteer instructors of Project Appleseed will present a marksmanship clinic scheduled for the Blue & Gray Range for the weekend of August 28/29, 2021. Project Appleseed is part of a nationwide, non-profit, educational organization that teaches rifle marksmanship skills and the history of our Nation’s founding. This will be an intensive two-day program shot from three positions (prone, seated/kneeling, standing) at 25 meters, but with targets scaled to simulate shooting at 100, 200, 300 and 400 yards. Instruction will include the six steps to firing a shot, natural point of aim, steady hold factors, zeroing a rifle efficiently, and much more. New shooters are welcome and will learn to use a rifle safely and to hit a target reliably. Seasoned shooters will hone the skills needed to shoot more accurately – even out to 500 yards. Cost for the weekend is $75 for adults and $30 for youth, military, and law enforcement.

Hard Copy Bulletin
The hard copy bulletin has been discontinued. It has proven difficult to get it out on time and it costs the club over $100 per issue in postage and printing. Pass the word to any members you know that do not receive the email bulletin. Have them contact David Howard at firstname.lastname@example.org. The bulletin is also available on the Club web-site and Facebook.
