Dillon Sportsman Center was host to yet another great opportunity for youth this month. The two-day Buckeye Firearms Foundation Youth Shoot was held the weekend of September 13-14 and hosted over 100 youth from around the state.
The concept of a youth shoot event started five years ago when the leaders of two Boy Scout troops wanted to give their youth an opportunity to earn their shooting sports merit badges outside of the summer camp environment.

At the conclusion of the first Level 2 FASTER (Faculty & Administrator Safety Training and Emergency Response) class last week, I was filled with pride.
