Instructional 3-Gun Shoot - Saturday August 26, 2017

The youth group will be hosting an instructional 3 gun shoot on August 26 at 1pm. We have done this event for several years, and it has been a great success.  This program is for kids 10-17 that have an interest in learning gun safety and how to shoot.  We will have instructors on hand to teach pistol, rifle, and shotgun.  We will be shooting steel knock-down targets, as well as clay pigeons.  In the past we have also helped parents or mentors that have never shot before.  This shoot is open to anyone, not just members, so if you have a young relative or friend interested in shooting sports, please invite them to attend.  We will have a BBQ supper at 5pm. You must pre-register with Glen Baldwin at 330-204-6444 or  We need to know how much food and ammo to get.  This shoot is limited to 25 youths.  We can also use helpers/safety officers for this program.  If you can help us out, give Glen a call.
