The Fort Lewis Youth Shoot is 10 a.m. Saturday, Aug. 13 at the Fort Lewis Shooting Range.
The Youth Shoot is an opportunity for young people, age 15 and younger to enjoy shooting clay pigeons with a shotgun.
The shoot is sponsored by Joint Base Lewis-McChord, Western Washington Pheasant Releasers, and Pheasants Forever Chapter 257. Volunteers will provide all the shotguns, ammunition, clay targets, and a free lunch for all participants.
The shoot will be closely regulated for safety. All participants will receive a safety briefing prior to handling firearms. A parent or guardian must also attend the safety briefing and be present during all firearm handling.
The volunteers involved with this event hope to introduce young people to clay target shooting, a fun, safe sport that requires eye to hand coordination, concentration and mental discipline. Participants will begin with simple targets, but also have the chance to try more challenging shots.
