“Participation on high school rifle teams is increasing”

I saw this item from the U.S. and thought it might be of interest here.  “Despite guns and schools debate, participation on high school rifle teams is increasing”

Long, an instructor at the Murrysville Gun Club for nearly two decades, extols the virtues of a sport that requires discipline and concentration and where anyone can participate.

Seven of the past 10 WPIAL [Western Pennsylvania Interscholastic Athletic League] individual champions are female.

“It’s a sport that’s starting to open up so it can accommodate all kinds of participants,” Long said. “It’s not a sport where you have to be athletically fit to do. You can be tall, skinny, short, fat — it doesn’t matter.

“You can be a boy or a girl. I like that it is a coed sport. Nobody’s singled out.”

Winter Fun Day Feb. 10

Our Winter Family Fun Day will be Sunday, Feb. 10, at the Beacon Homestead, 263581 Southgate Road 26 (across from Wilder’s Lake).  Starting at 2 pm.  Not a shooting event; just fun and good company.  Bring your toboggan or your snowmobile, or just socialize  around the camp fire.  If the weather co-operates we might be able to go skating on the lake – bring your skates – just in case 🙂 . There is lots of room inside, if we have members who would rather play cards. Hope to see you there!
