The Club hosts these events to promote the Project Appleseed project goal of teaching rifle marksmanship and to preserve the knowledge of our founding Fathers of our country.

Registration begins at 8 a.m. The clinic starts at 8:30 a.m. and will continue until 5:00 p.m., both Saturday and Sunday.

Participants are taught fundamental rifle marksmanship skills that are to allow a rifleman or riflewoman to be accurate out to 400 yards, with iron sights or a scope, a standard rifle and surplus ammo. Most of the instruction at a Project Appleseed event is conducted on the firing range at 25 yards, at reduced size targets to simulate 100 to 400 yards. Students will learn rifle shooting from the standing, sitting, kneeling, and prone positions, sight alignment, and breath control, along with safe gun handling, proper use of a sling, and Revolutionary War history.

Participants should bring their own ear/eye protection, a rifle with sling, ammunition, rifle mat, bug repellent, hat, sunscreen, a packed lunch, snacks, drinks, and plenty of water to stay hydrated.

A .22 caliber rifle is recommended due to the cost of ammo, but a centerfire rifle can be used if preferred. About 250 rounds of ammunition will be needed per day.

Youth under age 18: $30
