The Watauga Gun Club will host Project Appleseed on Jan. 25 and
Project Appleseed is a two-part program of history and rifle marksmanship, an activity of The Revolutionary War Veterans Association, a nonprofit organization that teaches traditional rifle marksmanship skills, with a focus on American heritage and history.
This event is open to the public, although pre-registration is preferred.
Part one of the program features historic accounts of the battles of Lexington and Concord, the events of April 19, 1775, and the start of the Revolutionary War.
According to organizers, “Volunteer instructors aim to give participants a better understanding of the fundamental choices the nation’s founding fathers faced in setting the stage for the America we now enjoy.”
RWVA instructors — all certified and highly trained — will then lead traditional rifle marksmanship clinics. As a part of the RWVA mission, “Adaptive Appleseed” seeks to make the program available to those with physical challenges.

The cost is $60 for adults and $20 for children younger than 18, with parental consent. The event is free for law enforcement and active military personnel with appropriate identification. Online registration closes on Jan. 23. However, registration is available at the gate.
It is the responsibility of the participant to follow all North Caroline state laws involving firearms.
