Appleseed? What in blue blazes is an Appleseed event?
Short answer - History, Heritage, Marksmanship.
AMERICAN History, Heritage & Marksmanship.
At an Appleseed event you will hear the story of the first day of America’s War of Independence.
A story that is not often told in public schools these days.
The story of those who SACRIFICED EVERYTHING to stand against tyranny for the cause of Liberty.
Appleseed is a whimsical title in reference to Johnny Appleseed.
He would plant his seeds so that future generations might have the benefit of fruit.
Appleseed is about preserving the History & Heritage of the American Revolution.
Appleseed marksmanship instruction, with practice, will allow you to take a rack grade rifle,
using standard grade ammunition, a G.I. web sling, fixed sights to
Qualify EXPERT on the Army Qualification Test
The standard of 4 minutes-of-angle out to 500 meters.

I am happy to report on another successful Appleseed event weekend at TCGC.
The weather was excellent for 29 participants who filled the line on the short range for 2 days.
Participants heard stories of individuals like Isaac Davis, Jonas Parker and Jonathan Harrington
who each paid the ultimate price to stand against tyranny and promote the cause of liberty on
April 19, 1775 at Lexington & Concord Massachusetts.
History & Heritage is what Appleseed is all about in addition to making America a nation of RIFLEMEN once again.
Three participants, two of which were youths, qualified EXPERT on the qualification test.
All others improved their skills considerably.
Many thanks to TCGC for hosting Appleseed these last 7 years and looking forward to many more in the future.
