Project Appleseed at Airfield Shooting Club

Project Appleseed will be holding a one-day clinic on the 100M range on Saturday, June 20 from 8:00am to 4:00pm.  This event will teach students the fundamentals of rifle marksmanship, including concepts such as developing a solid shooting position, natural point of aim, and steps required to fire a successful shot.  In between rifle instruction segments, students will learn about the Battles of Lexington and Concord, and the fateful events that moved the colonials down the path to independence on April 19, 1775. This is a family friendly event, and all skill levels and age ranges are welcome.  Bring whatever centerfire or rimfire rifle you have.  If you don’t have a rifle, we can provide loaner rifles with some advance notice. Signup is available at www.appleseedinfo.org, under the Events tab.  Walk-ons are welcome, though space is limited.  Airfield Shooting Club members attending this event will have their range fee waived; bring your credentials with you to the event. For questions, please contact Jesse at jesse.projectappleseedvirginia@gmail.com .

Medical professionals have made it clear that they and their facilities will be quickly overwhelmed if we are not able to slow the spread of the virus. We have already had at least one situation where club members may have been exposed to the virus. Both are presently nearing the end of their 14 day post-exposure quarantine period and at present it appears that they were not infected. However, we cannot always count on such good fortune. It appears that the virus can remain viable for relatively long periods of time on objects which we might come into contact with during routine use of the range. Many of our members are in the high-risk category. Even members who are not in the high-risk category may have family members who may be at higher risk. At this point we are hearing reports of people dying from the virus who were reported to be healthy and …
