  • Attn: Chicago Area and Southern Wisconsin Shooters

    Posted by Jonathan on August 12th, 2009 (All posts by )

    On Aug. 15 & 16 there will be a two-day rifle marksmanship clinic at the Kenosha County Range in Bristol, WI (about 60 miles North of Chicago):

    The Appleseed Program is designed to take you from being a simple rifle owner to being a true rifleman. All throughout American history, the rifleman has been defined as a marksman capable of hitting a man-sized target from 500 yards away — no ifs, ands or buts about it. This 500-yard range is traditionally known as “the rifleman’s quarter-mile;” a rifleman can hit just about any target he can see. This skill was particulary evident in the birth of our country, and was the difference in winning the Revolutionary War.

    See this web page for more information.

    (The Appleseed Program is a project of the Revolutionary War Veterans Association.)

    This looks like a fun event!

      Thanks for the traffic and for posting… We’ve been trying to publicize the event for ~2 months now.

      In addition, I’ll plug the McHenry County Sportsmen’s Assoc. (based in McHenry, IL) – we try to catalog a lot of the smaller events in Northern IL and Southern WI…
