Upcoming Youth Target Shoot

While we generally think of bird hunting in the fall and banquets the late winter and early spring, at Johnson County Pheasants Forever we think there’s never a bad time of year to get the next generation of wingshooters and outdoors enthusiasts together for some fun.

To that end, on Saturday, May 4th we are thrilled to host our first-ever Youth Target Shoot. Here’s the lowdown:

LOCATION: Powder Creek Shooting Park – 8601 Monticello Rd, Lenexa, Kansas

SIGN UP: Pre-Registration is required and is limited to the first 20 youth ages 10 -15

SCHEDULE: 9 a.m. – noon on Saturday, May 4, 2013 – lunch to follow

SUPPLIES: Shells, targets, lunch and shooting instruction will be provided

MENTORING: Each shooter must be accompanied by an adult mentor

COST: Thanks to the support of our members and sponsors, this event is free!

Space for this event is limited to the first 20 shooters to make their reservation. We’ve already had 10 sign up, so if you’re interested, the time to act is now. To reserve a space for your young shooter, contact our chapter president, Heath Hayden. You can reach him by email at heath.hayden17@gmail.com.

Shooting instruction, shells, targets and a pizza lunch will be provided. All shooters need to bring is their adult mentor, their favorite shotgun, and their eye and ear protection.

We want to thank four groups for their help in making this event possible: John Francis for his instruction, Pizza Shoppe for donating the pizza lunch, Powder Creek for hosting this event on their property, and the hundreds of members, volunteers and strong supporters of Johnson County Pheasants Forever.

We’re really looking forward to seeing our young people smash some clay pigeons!
