COMING SOON! GSL-Sponsored Appleseed Shoot in McLean, IL July 21 & 22

July 10, 2018

Appleseed2018

Folks, I'm a (mostly former) Appleseed instructor (in training).  I've been to a LOT of venues over the years, and the McLean, IL Appleseed event ranks as probably the best and friendliest places to participate in Appleseed.  And the instructors, many of whom are GSL members and GSL Defense Training instructors, are not only top notch, but they are people you know and trust.

GSL members Bob and Barb Holland host the event on their property.  There's shade, fans, and they feed the attendees.  Folks, life doesn't get much better than this.

Here's the info from the Appleseed website.

    Hi John, 

    At the Rantoul GSL mtg tonight, Ken Miller announced the Holland Appleseed event on July 21-22 and handed out flyers containing most of the above info.  However one thing I do not see is a starting time for the activities on Jul 21 or Jul 22.

      Bill, everyone is encouraged to be there before 8:30 AM to get checked into the event.  We will be setting up sunshades for the line and help will be appreciated.
