Just got back from my first Appleseed course up in Castle Rock, WA. Had someone recommend this to me a few months back, and decided to take my 10 year-old to give it a whirl. This was one of the best bonding activities I've found yet. Unfortunately we were only able to make it up for one day of the two day event, but it was absolutely worth the time and money. I've been shooting for a few decades, but today I realized that I've been doing a lot wrong for quite a long time. Anyway, I'm giving this event 2 thumbs up, and would recommend it to anyone, regardless of experience level. Fantastic way to spend a Saturday!
