We have two upcoming events that we really need YOUR volunteer help with….
First, we need people to help coach the Shotgun Station at the Youth Field Day on June 1, 2013 at Izaak Walton League of America York Chapter. Most of these kids will be first time shooters so at all you need to do is make sure they are safe, control the ammo, and point them down range. All of our Varsity shooters could handle this as well as most of our parents. I know there are a lot of you who are signed up for the Mt Airy Shoot that day but if you are available help it would be greatly appreciated, even if you can only spare an hour or two. If it were not for the support of the IWLA Mason-Dixon would not exist….please give back if you are able.
Second, Trappers are needed on June 22 to help with the Blue Mt. Chapter Safari Club’s annual AWLS Scholarship Sporting Clays Shoot Fundraiser at Central Penn Sporting Clays. This is nothing special, you take a group of shooters around the course and you pull for them. You just need to be attentive and focused on what you are doing. Your attendance would be a good gesture to show your appreciation for their support. Last year the Blue Mt. Chapter Safari Club donated $1000 to the Mason-Dixon Clay Busters.
In addition, this is an opportunity to learn about the SCI American Wilderness Leadership School program that sends local youth to Jackson, Wyoming. The week long program provides participants field activity including outdoor education lesson plans, plant identification, map and compass use, firearm safety, fly tying, survival training, and archery. Students also go on an overnight backpacking trip and a whitewater rafting trip on the Snake River. They also meet with experts trained in wildlife management and conservation.
Please contact me ASAP if you can help with either of these events. We need to make it a priority to give back to these organizations who have supported us. If it were not for their help many of you would not be able to afford to participate in our program.
