Club invites public to shoot

The public is invited to join volunteers at the Kelowna Fish and Game Club this Sunday to try shooting rifles, shotguns or bows.

If you or your youngsters are interested in trying your hand at archery, shooting rifles or shotguns, the Kelowna and District Fish and Game Club is holding its annual jug shoot Sunday and inviting the public to join in.

Last year more than 200 turned out for this fun-raising event, with proceeds going toward the club’s junior shooting and archery programs.

It’s from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the club’s ranges at 4041 Casorso Rd., and $1 a shot allows you to take aim at water-filled milk jugs or at balloons, with hotdogs and pop included in the ticket price.

Range officers work one-on-one with visitors for the sake of safety. Co-ordinator Rudy Litz says such events are a safe and easy way for parents and youngsters to learn about shooting and archery sports.

Hundreds of youngsters have developed into responsible adult shooters through the programs, he noted.  Lessons are offered alternate Tuesdays throughout the school year at the indoor range.

Weber and Markin Gunsmiths supply ammunition for the community shoot.

The Kelowna club is 108 years old and has a membership of about 1,000.
