Project Appleseed 2017

South Sound Composite Squadron is proud to announce Project Appleseed from 4-6 August, 2017! 

Project Appleseed is a nationwide program that teaches firearm safety and Revolutionary War history. Students will alternate between the firing range and history seminars. While the project is open to anyone, our activity will limit students to cadets only. Project Appleseed will be providing the program and Evergreen Sportsmen's Club (near Little Rock, WA) will be providing the range.  All we have to do is show up. This event involves the NRA Marksmanship Program that is also done at Basic Marksmanship Encampment (BME) with Lewis County Composite Squadron. Anyone wishing to continue progress made at BME (or on their own) should bring their scoring records.

There is room for up to 40 students. We are looking for staff to assist with Food Services and any camp logistics - cadets are welcome as staff as well.

We are also requesting assistance from any available senior members for the general weekend, kitchen staff, and to help with scoring targets.  Scoring help is needed beginning about 1pm Sunday, we will provide a short training session, and then it will get very busy very quickly.  Parents can help in the office by running a scanner to copy score sheets that both the cadets and instructors need prior to the end of the event.  As we need a head-count for this too, please register.  In the "position applying for," please write "Sunday Scorer/Scanner."  There will be no charge for the scoring/scanning-only position.

Staff will not have the opportunity to shoot, thus the reduced price.

The fee for students (including camping, food, and ammunition) is $100. Staff expenses are only $40.

NOTE: Cots are not available, so please bring one. The ground may not be suitable for a sleeping pad.
