Project Appleseed will hold a rifle marksmanship event on Saturday and Sunday, June 25-26 from 8:30 a.m.-5 p.m. both days at the Oak Harbor Conservation Club, 975 Gordon Rd., Oak Harbor. The unique event teaches fundamental rifle marksmanship skills together with stories about the important role that marksmanship played during the Revolutionary War.
The two-day event costs $75 and will include instruction on gun safety, proper marksmanship techniques and live fire practice. Youth and first responders are $30. Students will also have the opportunity to earn the coveted Rifleman Patch by shooting a qualifying score on the Appleseed Qualification Test.
In addition to expert marksmanship instruction, students will hear historical storytellers passionately share the Three Strikes of the Match, a series of three pivotal events that ignited the Revolutionary War.
Project Appleseed events are suitable for both new and experienced shooters. Families are welcome.
