Members will monitor shooters and their handling of the .22 caliber firearms to ensure safety.

But the event is all about fun, shooting and taking aim at some tasty prizes.

The range also provides generous targets with templates for people who don’t shoot well. and don’t know whether  hit the bull’s eye until you turn the target over, says Bradshaw.

“It’s fun for the kids.”
