ATA SHOOT MAY 21 & 22
On April 30th the Atascadero NRA held their annual fundraiser dinner. Some of our juniors from our junior shotgun class were at the fundraiser serving food. During the dinner they were presented with a check made out to our club for our grant from the NRA for the junior shotgun program, the check was made out for $7,421.21. We thank the NRA and all that participated in the fundraiser.
The RSO program is in effect at the rifle and pistol ranges and has had positive review. If anyone is interested in becoming a RSO and volunteering some time at the ranges, contact a Board member.
