    Here's a link to the full schedule NW Region's 2013 Schedule (keep checking back for added events)

    We are on DRRC's schedule for Feb 9 & 10 but there has been a hold up with paperwork so I'm not sure if that event is actually going to happen :(

    Yes, I'm still working with DRRC's XO to get a few more dates on the calendar there, Springfield frequently adds events throughout the year and we are working on a range in Grants Pass area that I expect to host a few events this year.

    If you know of a range (or even a land owner with a good backstop) that can support at least 25m get us a contact and we will work at making it happen. Have Appleseed, will travel :D

    That is also in the works. According to the northwest region project appleseed Facebook page there is a Seattle area range processing paperwork now. I'm not sure which range or what dates but will keep you all posted.

    Great news! I'll keep an eye out - would be great to attend one of these events and learn how to shoot better.

    I'd really love to go to one of these.

    I see the Feb. 9/10 dates aren't on the Appleseed website; does that mean it won't happen? My time starts to get limited in April and becomes more limited as the year goes on.

    I'd love to sign up for that weekend if it happens.

    Glad to hear it. I see that it's up on DRRC's calendar; I've been waiting for the stars to align to allow me to take this class :D

    Which would be a more appropriate rifle to bring: a 10/22 with stock iron sights or an AR-15 with a scope and dedicated .22 upper?

    IMHO, either one would be a fine choice for your first Appleseed. The AR .22 would be a hoot! Just make sure you have a solid way to mount a two point sling at the bottom of the stock on the forend. You want the sling pulling the gun directly back towards you when you are "looped up". It is really important to have at least two reliable mags for whatever you bring. Keep in mind you will be down in the prone position (a lot!) so any long extended mags that hand down will be a hindrance. In the end, bring whatever gun ya like, scoped or open and keep an open mind. You are there to HAVE FUN, improving your skills as a rifleman and learn some history.

    Really the answer is bring them both. Maybe start with the Ruger and move to the AR later in the weekend.

    You will learn a lot regardless of what rifle you bring. Iron sights are like learning to drive on a stick. Harder but once you learn you can drive anything.

    Anybody know what needs to be done to bring an Appleseed event to ARPC (Albany Rifle & Pistol Club) just south of Albany Oregon? I would love participate in one of these but have never been able to travel to one. What's involved in bringing one local?

    Edited:
    PM sent to KC
