The Black Gold Chapter of Pheasants Forever will host its 8th Annual Appreciation Event Sunday, Sept. 22, 2013 at LaSada Sporting Clays and Hunting Service, six miles southwest of Russell. The event will run from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. and is open to both members and non-members. Proceeds from the event will go toward youth activities, local scholarships, and the Black Gold Pheasants Forever youth outreach trailer.
The event will kick off with a Lewis Class Sporting Clays Shoot at 9:00 a.m. There is a $50 fee to enter, with $10 of the entry fee going back to the Lewis Class Purse. Shooters may come and go as they please, and can shoot as much or as little as they would like. All participants will have a chance to win prizes, including a cash prize, and one lucky youth will win a youth-model shotgun. There will be free instructional shooting for youth 16 and younger and women, shells and targets provided.
Other activities for the event include a youth archery range with 3D targets, trail walks, and bird watching.
