Trap shooting practices have begun! We will practice Thursday evenings at 6 pm with the Argyle Gun Club at the Argyle Trap Range, just south of the intersection of 1350 N and 700 E (see map below). Participating students need $4 for each round of 25 they shoot, shells and guns, and eye/ear protection. Participants should have hunter safety training, boy scout gun safety training, 4H gun safety training, or any other gun safety training. If a student wants to participate but does not have this training, a parent MUST be present to supervise the student during the shoot. Practices are not required, but are strongly encouraged prior to the competition on Columbus Day.
Check out our WP singers front and center...and on the big screen as well!
