Project Appleseed is an activity of The Revolutionary War Veterans Association and dedicated to teaching every American our shared heritage and history as well as traditional rifle marksmanship skills.
The Revolutionary War Veterans Association is a non-profit organization operated by volunteer instructors. Our volunteer instructors travel across the country teaching those who attend about the difficult choices, the heroic actions, and the sacrifices that the Founders made on behalf of modern Americans for our country’s freedom and independence.
Project Appleseed ‘s heritage program vividly portrays the Battles of Lexington and Concord. Modern listeners are confronted with the danger, the fear, and the heartbreaking separations that arose out of the choices made on April 19th, 1775. They are also reminded of the marksmanship skills and masterful organization that ultimately helped set the colonists on the path to success. Those who attend gain a better understanding of the fundamental choices faced by our ancestors as they began to set the stage for the nation we now enjoy.
The Project Appleseed marksmanship clinic will be held on Jan. 17-18 at the Wyoming Antelope Club, 3700 126th Ave. N., Clearwater.
Registration begins at 8am. The clinic starts at 8:30 a.m. and will continue until 5:00 p.m., both days.
Participants are taught fundamental rifle marksmanship skills that are to allow a rifleman to be accurate out to 400 yards, with iron sights, a standard rifle and surplus ammo. Most of the instruction at a Project Appleseed event is conducted on the firing range at 25 meters, at reduced size targets to simulate 100 to 400 yards. Students will learn rifle shooting from the standing, sitting, and prone positions, along with safe gun handling, proper use of a sling, and Revolutionary War history.
Please bring your 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 allowed only. About 500 rounds of ammunition will be needed per weekend.
Marksmanship Clinic fees:
Youth under age 18: $20
Active duty military, Law Enforcement Officers with ID, and elected officials are free.
