Try shooting or archery at club event

You can help raise funds for the junior programs at the Kelowna fish and game club Sunday and try shooting at the same time.

Members of the public are invited to try their hand at learning about shooting and archery in a fun jug shoot held annually as a fund-raiser for the junior programs at the Kelowna and District Fish and Game Club on Casorso Road.

It’s Sun., May 26, 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the club’s range, 4041 Casorso Rd. and is open to everyone 10 years of age and older. For a dollar a shot, guests can try shooting .22-calibre rifles, .223 ribles, shotguns and .22, .36 and 9 millimetre pistols and handguns.

There are also a variety of bows suitable for youngsters or adults that will be available, and there’ll be one-on-one, hands-on instruction from qualified club members.

Targets will include water-filled milk and juice jugs, water-filled balloons and clay birds for those who wish to try a shotgun.

There’ll also be a hotdog barbecue with dogs, pop or chips available for a dollar each.

The event is sponsored by Weber and Markin Gunsmiths, who provide the ammunition for the shoot, allowing more of the funds raised to go into the popular junior archery and shooting programs at the club.

In previous year, as many as 250 people have come out to the event.
