Appleseed in IL



Log in to see fewer ads
I find it distressing that there is only one active "club" entity doing Appleseed in IL.

Having a deep genealogical relationship to the Rev war folks and as a member of The American Mountain Men whose roots are related to the Eastern folks that were the over The Mountain Men and later became the trappers of the Rocky Mtns. I would like to see more participation from Illinois clubs.

This is just me talking.....

I believe there is an active group of "Revere's Riders", in Illinois, many who are former Appleseed instructors. One group, when they were still with Appleseed, came down to Arkansas, to run a couple of our shoots. They were some of our favorite out of state instructors.

Many ranges may not have yet posted their event schedules so it is possible that more Appleseed events will be listed in Illinois for next year as time goes on. There are AS events held throughout the year in Indiana, including at my local club range near Newburgh.

As for Revere's Riders which has two day rifle events very similar to the AS format, I am not aware of any events having been held in Illinois in the last couple of years, but I could be wrong. There are several ranges in Indiana, not too far from Illinois that have Revere's Riders events including ranges at Seelyville (near Terra Haute), Bedford, and Nashville.

It is a fact that many excellent former AS instructors in the Indiana/Kentucky area left Appleseed a few years back, and are now Revere's Riders instructors.
