appleseed without tech sights?

I really want to do an Appleseed event (hoping for the August 4th at ASC) while I still have time this summer, but I don't own a 10/22. I can borrow a friends, and I'd put a sling on it as compensation for borrowing it, but it doesn't have adjustable sights. I'd prefer not to spend even more money to out sights on a rifle that's not mine but I want to get the most that I can out of the experience.

So is it worthwhile to go without tech sites? Or better yet, is there a nice member of the forum willing to let me borrow their 10/22 with adjustable sites? Naturally I'd leave some sort of deposit deposit, and compensate with some beer or something?

Yeah, I can loan you mine assuming I'm not going myself; which I probably won't till Winter.

My 10/22 shoots dime sized 10 shot groups at 25 yards, has Tech Sights, and M1 Strap. It just needs a good shooter on the trigger.

I'd like to do that with my son. What is the youngest you have seen at the Appleseed events?
