DNR Hunter Safety class

Posted by Raymond Goin on August 24, 2014 at 10:30 PM Comments comments (0)

     The Foosland Sportsmens Club again hosted a DNR Hunter Safety class. We had 41 students on Saturday. One of the students was unable to attend the class on Sunday. Some of these folks traveled 45+ miles, each way, to attend both days of this class.

     Lunch was provided for all in attendance. Champaign County Pheasants Forever donated  the beverages for the entire weekend class.

     40 students took the test and all 40 passed, and recieved their GREEN HUNTER SAFETY card. It was a great class and we had a lot of compliments on the club and grounds.

     At the end of the program every student, 16 and under, was given  a raffle ticket for a prize drawing. Each walked away with a special outdoorsy item.

     Special THANK YOU go out to the Volunteer Instructors that help to pass along their passion for the outdoors. Curt Sinclair, Tom Bates (and Piatt County Double Beards), Wendy Brock, Amanda Goin, and CPO Trent Reeves. Without their help we could not do this program.

We had our last SPLATTERBOARD of the season. We held 14 shoots and 3 KIDS shoots. The weather was just too nice!

We held the drawing for the KAL-TEC pistol. Young Miss Sage drew the winning ticket. The winner of the pistol was RON BEATTY. Thank you Sage. Congratulations Ron.

The CMP clinic was well attended yesterday. 22 people showed up in the morning to take the clinic. Lunch was provided for all in attendance. Almost 20 people stayed to shoot the course. It looked like everyone was having a good time. Thanks to Ken Kinder, Jeff, Wayne and Scott for putting this together for the club.
