2020 Junior Shooting Season
The Forks Rifle Club would like to extend a welcome to any kids/young adult’s ages 8-20 interested in shooting sports to join the Junior Marksmanship Program. The annual kick off/informational meeting will be held on Thursday November 5, 2020 at 6:00 p.m. at the Forks Rifle Club (see address below). This program teaches precision marksmanship and rifle safety to anyone wanting to learn this Olympic style of position shooting. After a junior member has experience in all four positions, they will have the opportunity to test their skills at local and state competitions. Competitions range in skill level from beginner to expert. Shooters will compete with others from around the state/region at their same skill level, age, and experience.
Practice will begin on Tuesday November 10, 2020 at 6:00 p.m. Practice will continue to be held every Tuesday and Thursday from 6-9 p.m. at the Forks Rifle Club. Due to the current situation with COVID-19, this may be subject to change based on current situations. Practice dates are also subject to change due to inclement weather, holidays, and other unforeseen circumstances. In such cases, information will be sent out in as far advance as possible.
All ammunition and necessary equipment for beginners is supplied by the junior club, which has been made possible through our annual raffle ticket fundraiser alongside the multiple grants that have been received from the NRA Foundation over the past several years. The only requirement to join is that the junior shooter becomes a member of the Forks Rifle Club (if they aren’t already), and pay a $15.00/year junior membership fee.
We look forward to having the opportunity to work with you on perfecting your marksmanship skills. If you have any questions regarding directions to the range, general information on the shooting program, or want to reserve your spot, please do not hesitate to call or text Joe Martin (218-791-0619).
