Project Appleseed comes to Central Whidbey Sportsmen’s Association

Anyone who wants to learn traditional rifle marksmanship skills and the role they played in America’s founding will want to register for an upcoming Project Appleseed event.

The Project Appleseed event will be held from 8:30 a.m. to 5:30 p.m., Oct. 26-27 at the Central Whidbey Sportsmen’s Association, 397 Safari Lane located off Highway 20 near Outlying Field.

Project Appleseed is dedicated to bringing Americans closer to their heritage and passing on the tradition of rifle marksmanship in a fun, safe setting.

The Project Appleseed event will be held from 8:30 a.m. to 5:30 p.m., Oct. 26-27 at the Central Whidbey Sportsmen’s Association, 397 Safari Lane located off Highway 20 near Outlying Field.

Participants will learn how to shoot rifles from practical field positions such as the prone, sitting, and standing positions.

They will learn the techniques that will improve their accuracy so they can place 10 rounds in a postage stamp-sized target posted at 25 yards without using extra support such as a bench or sandbags.

Participants will also learn how civilian marksmanship played a pivotal role in the founding of our nation.

Project Appleseed welcomes attendance by all individuals regardless of experience level, political affiliation, gender, or religion. Instructors have received specific training through an Adaptive Appleseed program to accommodate individuals with disabilities.
