I tried posting this yesterday but, for some unknown reason, wasn't able to get it in.
We've fixed the date, as Saturday, April 22nd, at Old Bethpage R&P Club, the facility we always use.
If you've signed on, to work that day, please arrive by 10am, if you're part of the range crew and by 8:30am, if you're part of any other crew.
If you know of any youngsters, boys or girls, ages 12~17, at the time of the event, who might be interested, please let them know of the event.
The classroom portion will start at 9am, then run until approximately noon, when we will provide the students and staff with a complimentary lunch of pizza and soft drinks.
After lunch, the students will be brought down to the range, in groups, to work with experienced instructors, on-on-one, firing bolt-action, .22 caliber rifles.
If any of the youngsters are, also, Boy Scouts, this event will qualify them for the BSA Rifle Merit Badge.
There is no cost, to the participants. All costs have been absorbed by SASI. All rifles, ammo, protective eyewear and hearing protection will be provided, by SASI, NYSDEC and Old Bethpage R&P Club.
Anyone interested will need to complete the attached Parental Permission and Hold Harmless Agreement, then mail it, to the address indicated thereon.
