Y0UTH DOVE HUNT

RED RIVER PISTOL
September 30th, October 1st and 2nd we hosted the Red River Regional Pistol Competition. There were 26 participants from as far away as Nebraska.
SHOOTING AND TRAP STANDS
Lake Road Welding did a bang up job on the shooting stand and trap machine stand. This improved the looks of the range and improved the safety on the range. Thanks to Jerry Morgan and Lake Road Welding for their fine job.
friends of the NRA banquet
The Friends of the NRA banquet held late last year yielded a quantity of new equipment for our Youth Marksmanship Program. Several NWTFS Directors such as Larry Carr assisted with the banquet while long time NWTFS members like David Shoop were at the tables supporting this fun event with their time and money.
First and foremost was 25,000 rounds of badly needed rimfire ammunition. One day of rifle and pistol practice with 20 youngsters on the firing lines will easily burn up 1,500 rounds. Five .22 caliber Ruger target pistols and three Ruger American .22 caliber bolt action rifles were added to our inventory along with several spotting scopes and youth size rifle shooting coats.The Youth Marksmanship Program will put these to good use. The hardware will last for years and help train hundreds of youngsters.
