Our .22 rim-fire rifle "Youth Rifle Shooting Program" (YRSP) for youth age 15 years and younger will be held at the Plantation Rifle Range in 2014. The Range received a grant from The Whatcom Community Foundation to support the Youth Rifle Shooting Program.
The YRSP is scheduled to begin on Saturday, November 1, 2014 for 8 consecutive Saturday mornings, ending on December 20, 2014. Each session is 8:00 - 10:00 AM. Participation is on a first-come-first-served basis each session.
All rifles, ammunition, ear and eye protection and targets are supplied. Participating families may bring their own .22 rim-fire rifles and ammunition is they wish.
All youth must have an accompanying parent or guardian and may attend any single session or all 8 sessions.
The program begins at 8:00 AM each Saturday with a briefing on range and firearm safety. Instruction in the proper handling and operation of the rifle is also given prior to going onto the firing line. Instruction in marksmanship is provided on the firing line as the youth are shooting. The program ends at 10:00 AM.
