    APPLESEED @ LIPSA - April 21 & 22, 2018- PREPARATION

    SHOOTERS...YOUR PREPARATION PERIOD BEGINS NOW!!


    Our Appleseed Shoot at LIPSA, April 21 & 22, 2018 is approaching.
    It's time we started talking about it and have anyone with questions ask them and we'll get them answered.
    Also we're always open to suggestions from our Shooters.

    As stated in the earlier thread we will be taking this event at a SAFE, slower rate then others we've done. The purpose is NOT to burn ourselves out. Be Safe, Learn and enjoy is the plan. If we go too fast we'll all be hurting by the end of Sunday. No rush at this one but we will get it all in.

    This will be an ongoing thread because I know I won't cover (Remember) everything right now.
    So......I'll begin with what I can and we'll be adding as needed.

    Please feel free to add anything you may think of that I left out and also ask any question you may have about anything you're not sure of.
    An Appleseed Event is a Team Event so we'll do this together.


    Keep in mind this is our Patriots Day Shoot.
    This is a very special Appleseed Event.
    We'll be celebrating with the "Memorial Volley" to pay our Respect to those who gave all on April 19, 1775.
    Also I'm planning on some very special "Fun Shoots" to add to our celebration.

    For those who make Rifleman you'll receive not only the "Patch" but will also be awarded our "Patriots Day Patch" and the April 19, 1775 rocker .









    WHAT TO BRING:

    Rifle of choice. Scopes or irons. Rim Fire or Center Fire. Your choice.
    Magazines. 4 would be perfect but 2 are necessary
    Ammo...I'll estimate about 700 rounds for the weekend but it could go a little higher/lower.
    Sling. It's important to have a sling for your Rifle.
    Eye & Ear Protection.
    A Mat
    to lay on. Can be just a piece of old carpet. Doesn't have to be fancy.
    Cleaning Kit. Never hurts to carry one.
    Sight Adjustment Tool for your rifle helps, we share at an Appleseed so someone may have it.
    Chair. Not necessary but will help.
    Small table. Also Not necessary but will help you keep your equipment out of the sand.
    A Pop Up Canopy if you have one. Again not necessary
    A LIGHT lunch. Don't want to fill up and get lazy.
    FLUIDS......Very important to stay hydrated. (Start hydrating the day before)
    Sun Screen is advised. Lets hope we need it.
    Clothing for ANY weather condition. Rain Gear. It's a RAIN OR SHINE EVENT.
    Elbow Pads IF you prefer to use them. They usually do help but not necessary.
    Staple Gun & Staples..but we can share.

    Everyone will need to sign a "Liability Wavier".
    I'll see if I can locate the link for those to be printed out before you arrive. If not we'll get this done upon arrival.
    The new system gives me the ability to print these out with the info you provided when you registered. I'll do that if I can't locate a link for you to get this done. The old link seems to be no longer is available.


    You can also read through this link that give info on "How to Prepare for an Event"...........


    https://appleseedinfo.org/how-to-prepare/



    Arrival time at the Range will be 8:00AM


    When you arrive at our area you'll be directed where to park. Please leave EVERYTHING in your vehicles and go to the "Admin Table", hand in your Release Forms and we'll need to collect the Range fee which is $20.00 per day, per shooter.
    Please have the exact amount. You can pay for both days or just the first. We'll collect the second days fee on Sunday.
    HOWEVER, it would make things a lot easier if you would pay for the 2 days on Saturday. Less paper work for us.

    Once you're signed in and issued some material go back to your vehicles and bring your gear to the "Equipment Line".


    DO NOT REMOVE ANY FIREARMS!.................. ALL FIREARMS STAY IN YOUR VEHICLES!

    Leave them in your vehicles until after the "Safety Briefing".
    We'll let you know when to retrieve them.
    Please DO NOT carry any Pistols on your person. NO pistols are allowed (for safety reasons) on the "Firing Line".

    Instructors will be there to guide everyone through this process but IMO giving you a heads up on how we're going to run this will help everything run a little smoother.
    We'll work together as a team and make the most of what's planned to be a great weekend.

    For those not familiar with the location of the Range here's the directions.............

    Directions:
    From the Long Island Expwy: to Exit 70, go south to Sunrise Hwy. Take the Hwy east to Exit 63 south, go south to the first traffic light, turn left into Gabreski Airport( Suffolk County Airport) go forward as far as you can and make a left turn on to Perimeter Road. Follow this road around until you reach the Pine Barrens Range. Ignore the sign about authorized access, you are authorized.

    From Sunrise Hwy: Go east to Exit 63 south. At first traffic light make left into Gabreski Airport (Suffolk County Airport), make another left at Perimeter Road and follow the road to the Pine Barrens Range. Ignore the sign about authorized access, you are authorized.

    Important: If you go over the railroad tracks, you have gone to far, turn around.


    ANY QUESTIONS?

    PLEASE JUST ASK.

    We're less then 2 weeks away from our Event.

    Hopefully those who were able to get tickets are well into their "Prep Period" because it will be here before we know it. Time sure has a way of flying in today's world.
    Check the list above and start getting your gear in order......... if you haven't already started.
    Start loosening up those couch potato bodies.

    Might be a good idea to take out the rifle you're going to use and give it a once over. I know if I haven't handled a certain Rifle in awhile I'll need to review the operation and check for loose parts.

    Now lets hope we get some really good weather. Lately it's been pretty chilly so remember to be prepared. You should start hydrating a few days before the Shoot.
    Don't mean to make this sound like we're going to be running a marathon, not this time...... but being prepared is important. Those who have attended an Appleseed Event before know exactly what I'm saying.

    We have 28 Shooters Registered and this looks to be the largest Appleseed Shoot we've held so far at LIPSA.

    Once again.......we will be taking this event at a SAFE, slower rate then others we've done. The purpose is NOT to burn ourselves out. Be Safe, Learn and enjoy is the plan. If we go too fast we'll all be hurting by the end of Sunday. No rush at this one but we will get it all in.


    At this Shoot we will be shooting our "Memorial Volley" for those who gave all on April 19, 1775.
    We will also be paying our respects by adding the names of the four members of the 106th Air Rescue Wing stationed out of Gabreski Air Base who were killed in Iraq recently. LIPSA is just about on that Air Base so this will be something very special for all of us.


    Looking forward to seeing all on the line.

    SHOOTERS.........Your Preparation Period is nearing an end!

            Very excited...I sighted in my scope the other day at 25 yards best I could on a Marlin I never shot before, and as someone who hasn't shot a rifle since Magnum PI was still on the air (Google it kids, it's the guy from Blue Bloods, but in Hawaii wearing short-shorts and solving crime while driving a Ferrari), it was loads of fun. But I'm very happy I can learn the right way to do it via Appleseed before I have a chance to develop any bad habits on my own, so very much looking forward to this and the history behind it.

              Before my first Appleseed, I thought I was a decent shot, could group pretty tight at a decent distance. After the first day of a very cold Winterseed years ago, I realized I didn't know shit. After 4 events, i'm really thankful to the instructors and IIT's that have shown me how to shoot more accurately. To also understand the history behind the beginning of this great Nation, how it came to be, incredible.

                    The events I've participated in prior never included the 04/19 shoot. I wanted to make sure and get in this one. But that's ok McFly, you just keep hating

                            And thanks Evo, when it comes to shooting it's pretty mind boggling how many levels there are to it. I think that's one of the things I love about it, no matter what you think you know there's always so much more to learn. But at the same time, you can have fun at any level. Brilliant sport/skillset, whatever you wanna call it, there are always new things to challenge you.

                              As of now the weather is looking great! (Did I just jinx us).
                              Those "pop ups" are looking more like a better idea each day so if you have one please bring it. We'll share as we always do at Appleseeds but the more the merrier.


                              I have several who are looking for Tickets to this Event so if you purchased one and something came up please let it be known NOW.

                              This will be a PACKED SHOOT. 30 Shooters. I was out there yesterday just to scope out our area and all is looking good.


                              ARRIVAL TIME 8:00AM.

                              Once parked go directly to the Admin Table and sign in and fill out your Liability Waivers.

                              DO NOT TAKE ANY EQUIPMENT OUT OF YOUR VEHICLES UNTIL THIS PROCESS HAS BEEN COMPLETED.


                              The Range fees: $20.00 per day, per shooter. PLEASE have exact change.
                              Also please pay for both days on Saturday. This just makes it easier for all and we can get going on Sunday without delay.
