                                 Shooting with Seth

 West Manchester Farmers & Sportsman Club is honored be hosting a new event called, ‘Shooting With Seth’.

Pennsylvania State Representative Seth Grove of the 196th Legislative District will be at our club on Saturday July 20, 2019 from 9:00 am – 11:00 am. Seth will be here to discuss issues that are taking place in our state and to answer any questions you may have. After a brief discussion, we will take to the range to partake in some handgun and rifle shooting with Seth. I’m sure this will lead into some friendly competition among the members and our state representative.

If interested, contact Brian Kimball at bdktoys@comcast.net as there is limited space. Please note in the subject line, ‘Shooting with Seth’.

·        Brian Kimball will be acting range officer during the time of ‘Shooting with Seth’

·        All shooters must have their own eye and hearing protection

All shooters will help clean up brass after the shoot.

Itinerary 

                                     Club Donation

In an effort to enhance our shooting ranges and to continue improving range safety, the club is investigating the installation of pre-cast concrete blocks installed between the pistol range and the 100 yard rifle range. The cost of this work exceeds the club budget therefore, we are inquiring to see if there are members willing to make a donation. Each block costs approximately $30. You may donate for one or as many blocks as you like.

If interested, please contact bdktoys@comcast.net and indicate how many blocks you would like to donate.

Thank you in our efforts to enhance the club.
