Junior Trap is back!
This will be starting on Wednesday, May 5th at 5:00 pm and will meet every Wednesday for 10 weeks. Any interested students ages 10 and above are welcome at no charge. In order to participate in junior trap, students must have their hunter safety certification. Since the passing of Jim Rehm, we no longer have an instructor. The club has been looking for a new hunter safety instructor, but we haven't had much luck. If anyone knows someone who could do this, please let us know!
In the meantime, we recommend that interested students get the instruction online to receive their hunter safety certification. Information is linked below. A field day for online classes is part of the requirement. A link to scheduling this is also below. Unfortunately, we are unable to do this at our range.
