GENERAL INFORMATION


Our primary focus has been and will remain on safety and education. This includes the safety of the shooters themselves, spectators, the general public and the preservation of property, both on and surrounding the shooting ranges. Once safety concerns have been satisfied, our attention turns to providing the most enjoyable shooting experience for our guests and participants.


As a guest of the Berwyn Rod & Gun Club Inc. (BRGC), you will be asked and expected to follow the rules and guidelines presented to you by the BRGC staff members running the event. Anyone deemed to be disruptive or not following provided guidance will be excused from further participation in the event.

PROJECT APPLESEED EVENTS

Project Appleseed's heritage program vividly portrays the Battles of Lexington and Concord with the kind of care and immediacy that is absent from most formal schooling. Modern listeners are confronted with the danger, the fear, and the heartbreaking separations that arose out of the choices made on April 19th, 1775. They are also reminded of the marksmanship skills and masterful organization that ultimately helped set the colonists on the path to success. Those who attend gain a better understanding of the fundamental choices faced by our ancestors as they began to set the stage for the nation we now enjoy.

 

Their rifle marksmanship program complements that history and heritage.  The focus is on teaching the traditional American marksmanship skills.  There are, however, several aspects of the marksmanship program that deserve special mention. Project Appleseed is particularly proud of their younger attendees. In accordance with applicable local laws, young people with sufficient maturity are welcome to the Appleseed line and can, with parental permission, join the cadre.  The RWVA recognizes the importance of introducing a wide cross section of Americans to their marksmanship heritage.

 

Many of the Appleseed events at BRGC are single-day events although there will be some two-day events (please see the schedule info below).


A semi-automatic rifle with a detachable magazine is recommended. If you don't have one, just let us know beforehand and we'll be glad to set you up with a loaner rimfire rifle to use for the event.

 

Registration for our Project Appleseed events can be accessed via the Appleseed Schedule for the State of Maryland (http://appleseedinfo.org/search-states-display.php?qstate=MD&statename=Maryland) or the direct link to our events (http://www.appleseedinfo.org/search-states-location.php?locationid=544&id_event=4340). Please remember that Active Military, Reserve and Guard, Peace Officers, and Disabled Vets can attend any of the Project Appleseed events in Maryland for free, with appropriate ID. If you qualify for one of the Free admissions, select the “FREE ticket SPECIAL” when registering for yourself. Any additional tickets would be at the standard prices, unless the additional ticket also qualifies for a free ticket.
