Annual Nick Van Benschoten Youth Pheasant Hunt – Jim Burke
The youth sporting clays / 5 stand was held on Aug 11. Two young men spent the morning doing the sporting clays range. Had a bite to eat and shot a few rounds of the 5 stand . Sean and Sasha ( I hope I spelled their names right) both did very well and are looking forward October's squirrel outing. Pics are here , here ,here , here , and here
DEC Summer Camps program IS CLOSED FOR 2021 due to COVID
2020 Registration for DEC Camp (Camp Colby, etc.) begins at 1:00 PM on Sunday, January 26, 2020. Please notify Gary Simpkins at 215-989-2007 if you have a youth between 11 and 17 years of age who would like to attend. Spots fill up fast, so notify Gary as soon as possible and go to the DEC website to register early. I have a document with information from the DEC Website in PDF format attached to this email. Please direct any questions about the Camps to Gary. www.dec.ny.gov/education/29.html .
- Once all six campers are registered, the club will receive a scholarship to send a seventh child to camp for free. So please let Gary know when registering for camp, so we can claim our 7th sponsorship.
@ our June 2014 meeting, our very own resident "Eagle Scout" Adam Day gave a presentation on his journey to attain his Eagle Scout status and his appreciation to the club in helping him to meet his goals. Glencadia presented Adam with a plaque to commemorate his achievement (here). Also, the club has agreed to donate some money for Bill Glasser to help achieve his Eagle Scout goals.
The kids are our future, here's another investment into ours and theirs.
Here's a pic of three of the team member's after April's meet.
