North Jr High Activities Day
On Friday, March 28th youth from the North Junior High School came out to the Del-Tone/Luth Gun Range as part of their Activities Day to shoot some trap. This year the youth came out in two sessions, one arrived at 9:00AM and the second arrived at 12:45PM. Each session had several shooters and each shooter was able to shoot two rounds. Some of the youth had never shot before and some shot like old pro’s. No matter what the prior experience was, they all left with smile on their faces!!!!! I’d like to “Thank” Dave Shelstad of the North Junior High School for continuing to bring the youth out to the club to shoot and also Joe Opitz, Dick Berger and Tom Zitur for volunteering their help with the youth!!
