Project Appleseed Announces 2022 Schedule of Ohio Events
Appleseed only took a short break in Ohio. Even with the cold and the snow this winter, Ohio Appleseed is still having events and putting riflemen and women’s skills to the true elements test.
Project Appleseed is a nonpartisan, nonprofit national organization teaching Americans about their shared heritage and teaching fundamental rifle skills at a 2-day clinic. Most events are at a distance of 25m.
Appleseed teaches field rifle marksmanship skills using a USGI web sling; no bipod, sand bags or tables. This is done over the course of a 2-day weekend clinic. During the clinic participants will also hear the heritage every American shares that dates back to April 19, 1775.
The heritage shared over the weekend will include Paul Revere’s ride, Lexington Green, and the North Bridge. You’ll also hear some interesting bits of history on specific people that made their mark during the day.
Who should participate in an Appleseed event? ANYONE and EVERYONE! Whether you’re new or experienced, a man or a woman, adults or children. When it comes to bringing a child, they must be able to handle the rifle safely, be safe overall and follow directions. We’ve had students of all ages, from 8 to 80.
If you’ve been an Appleseed event in past and earned that coveted Rifleman patch, put your skills to the true test at distance. Appleseed has events allowing shooting out to 400 yards, called Known Distance events.
In the past couple years, Appleseed also started having Pistol Clinics. Put your pistol skills to the test with a qualification test similar to the rifle clinics. There are several pistol clinics being offered across Ohio. Don’t worry, you won’t miss out on the heritage either. The heritage from April 19, 1775 is included in these clinics. There is an age limit for the pistol clinics in Ohio, a minimum age of 18 years old.
