3rd Annual Youth Trap Shoot
Our Chapter held its 3rd Annual Youth Trap Shoot on Saturday, August 23, 2014, at the Mitchell Trap Club. One of our Youth Coordinators, Jen Johnston, reported that they doubled their attendance from last year with 33 area youth participating in the day’s activities. There was no cost to the youth who attended as the targets and ammunition were provided by our Chapter and the lunch was donated by Quizno’s. We have already received many thanks from the youth who attended. A big thanks goes to the Mitchell Trap Club for the use of their wonderful facility and to their members who volunteered their time to help with the event. Jen Johnston, Mike Blaalid and John Bennett, our Youth Coordinators and our Chapter volunteers as well as members of the 4-H shooting sports program spent Saturday helping out and coaching the youth. There were very positive comments from the volunteers on what a great time it was. Mother Nature also was especially kind to us as we were able to shoot in between the rain showers. Also, it was the debut of a new Pheasant’s Forever Shooting Sports trailer which is owned by Pheasants Forever especially for use by the PF chapters in our State through our regional PF representative Mike Stephenson.
