Smarter, not harder.

I'm just too dumb to know I ain't 22 anymore

Here is an interesting option for a Shoot/Meetup in Ramseur for an Appleseed shoot.  The course there is 1 day at 25 yard (best for .22LR) on fundamentals and a second day at up to 400 yards.  If you follow directions and have a steady hand, they give you a little green 'Rifleman' patch.  They don't hand out a lot of the patches.  Ramseur is the home range of the national program.  I've done it twice, and have 1 patch.

Here is another option for a NRA sanctioned match in Salisbury.  I shot here a few time years ago. They ran a good match and have a nice facility.  $20 is less expensive than the $75 2-day Appleseed event.

Dates: July 18, September 19, November 21, 2020
https://rcwa.club/high-power/

The main comparison between the two is the Appleseed event will have many instructors to coach shooters.  They will coach you as much as or as little as you want.  Very family/kid friendly.  The NRA event will have a range officer and may assigned a seasoned shooter to supervise a new shooter to ensure safety, and rules are known and followed.  To be fair, most of the NRA shooters are more than happy to offer advice to new shooters on how to setup in the various shooting positions.

I think an Appleseed would be an excellent event.

Personally, I'd vote for a September timeframe. My summers can get pretty crazy.

As far as another attempt at Lake Norman, do you guys prefer July 25th, or August 1st?
Link Posted: 6/26/2020 8:26:49 PM EST
At this point either one for me.  That’s far enough out to plan.  Hopefully no monkey wrenches for me before then.

We have the Triad Battle Buddies, and now the start of the Triangle Battle Buddies. The Triad group is doing a ruck next weekend and a first aid class on 8/8.

The next class I’d LOVE to do is a commo class to get us ready for the ham test.

Personally In today’s climate, and considering my position & employer.. I’d rather not have my pictures out there.  The chances of something negative happening are slim, but again in today’s climate, I’d rather not take a chance

Understood, and that's why I'm asking.

I didn't take any pics on Saturday.

No one else has chimed in, so I am going to forward the pics I have along and see if any get used.

LIGHT YEARS better than the old ALICE. I have the same stuff packed in it and my shoulders don't bother me at all.

I need to find some trails about halfway between us.

Want to do a timed hike on a greenway to build points to APC rankings?

Or do you prefer a more strenuous hike in the woods?

Some area sites.

Stone mountain state park.
Pilot mountain state park.
Hanging rock mountain state park
Morrow Mountain State Park
Lake Norman State Park
Uwharrie National Forest
MTS Trail - https://mountainstoseatrail.org/segment/7/

There is a spur of the MTS trail from Pilot Mtn SP to the Yadkin river, likely to have less elevation.

You know we have probably met at one of the old hometown shoots at some point or another years ago. I would love to join you for this hike, but I already had plans to take to bike out and ride the Back of the Dragon up in VA. If my plans fall through I will join you on the Greenway.

I have never made any of the hometown shoots

But we'll be doing these about once a month, give or take, and maybe more.

Keep 10/3 available - I have an announcement coming up for that after this hike.

If I get enough folks wanting to get together, we'll pick a place in the Triad area, probably along one of the green ways. If not, I'll just do it around my neighborhood.
