Rifleman Opportunity Card (ROC).


The purchase of a RWVA membership of any level prior to Nov 30, 2011 in conjunction with paying to attend a two day Appleseed event entitles you to a Rifleman Opportunity Card (ROC).

What is a ROC? It is a card that allows you to participate in the Appleseed program free until your membership card expires or until you shoot a Rifleman's score. The Shoot Boss will validate your card to make it a ROC, which will let you pre-register free to come back to Appleseed two-day events until your membership card expires or until you qualify for your Rifleman Patch, whichever comes first.

How it works:
1. If you already have a valid RWVA membership, bring your card to a two day event and the Shoot Boss will validate it as a ROC.

2. You may purchase a RWVA membership on-site at the event and the Shoot Boss will validate it as a ROC.

3. If you purchased a RWVA membership when you registered and have not received your membership card yet, print and bring your Eventbrite confirmation and the Shoot Boss will issue you a validation.

4. To use the card, you MUST pre-register for subsequent Appleseeds through Eventbrite, use the "FREE Sat & Sun Active Military, Reserve, and Guard w/ ID, Peace Officers (w/ ID), Disabled (w/ ID), Re-enactors in period dress, Elected officials (w/proof)" choice.

5. Bring your validated card with you to the Appleseed event, to be checked at the registration table. Discount does not apply to the fee for a Rifleman Boot Camp. If you do not bring your validated card with you, you will have to pay the full pre-registration fee.

6. The offer expires when you earn your badge, or when the card expires, whichever comes first. If your one year RWVA membership expires prior to Nov 30, 2011, you may renew your one year membership for $20 and your ROC will renew: just bring your old membership card with the SB validation on it and your SB will validate the new card.

7. This offer available to men, women, youth under 21. So hurry and improve your skills to earn the Badge, and learn some of your country's heritage along the way! And bring friends to learn heritage and marksmanship with you!



Keep practicing until you earn your Rifleman Badge!

Great, thanks. Just so I know when we get there, what is the cost for membership and the card?

Aaaargh... timing is everything.

I don't suppose this offer is retroactive if we've already attended a 2-day clinic earlier this year, is it? :D I think I still have that .PDF file of my EventBrite ticket stored off somewhere....

Sorry, not retroactive, must be purchased while attending both days of a two day Appleseed.

so basically if we fail to qual rifleman we can put down $20 bucks and come back next month and try again

Correct. You can try as many times as you want, at any Appleseed, until the expiration date on the membership card.

Or until you receive you're rifleman patch.

I imagine the idea is if you make rifleman and you want to keep coming back they would rather you start working your way up the instructor ranks than just returning as a shooter.

You are correct, once you do make Rifleman the offer ends.

You'd be surprised how many do come to Appleseed after making Rifleman, though, either to qualify on a different rifle or to further improve their skills. What really makes us happy is when you come back and bring family and friends -- we can't rebuild a nation of Riflemen without everyone helping.
