FROM:  Joey Wells, Marion County FFA Advisor

SUBJECT:  Gun Safety Course/Skeet Tournament

The Marion County FFA will be hosting a Gun Safety Course that will culminate in a Skeet Tournament for FFA and 4H teams.  The date for this activity will be Saturday, May 2nd beginning at 9:00 a.m. at Buckland Farms in north Marion County.

Attached you will find registration and parental release forms.  Each team member will need a release form to participate.  Be sure to get a school administrator to sign the liability statement at the bottom of the registration form.

The tournament will be a standard Hi/Lo house set up with plans for two rounds of 25 shots each. The number of teams registered will determine whether we will have a 25 shot or 50 shot tournament. Buckland Farms has two ranges that can be used simultaneously to help speed up the tournament.  Bring extra shells for tie breakers, etc.

Teams are responsible for their own shells (No Reloads) and eye and ear protection.  Safety will be strictly enforced.

Team members will be provided lunch as part of their registration.  Others will be charged $5.00 per meal.

The registration deadline will be Wednesday, April15th. Registration can be made by email with checks brought to the tournament on May 2nd.

Also enclosed are directions to Buckland Farms.

We are looking forward to having many of you with us on the 2nd.
