The Anoka County chapter of Pheasants Forever is putting out a plea for assistance from certified Firearm Safety Instructors in Minnesota. The PF chapter will be hosting the 10th Annual Youth Education & Fun Day on Saturday September 13th from 10:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. at the Beaverbrook Tri-County Sportsman’s Club in Cedar, Minnesota.

The event, which is free to kids, offers trap shooting, .22 rifle, archery, and many other interactive activities to introduce kids to the shooting sports, wildlife and to promote hunting. Free lunch will be provided by the chapter for kids, parents and volunteers.

This is a big annual event and draws approximately 300 kids annually. The PF chapter is always in need of volunteer FAS instructors to assist at the trap stations and also the .22 range. If you are FAS certified and can donate 5 hours of your time to work with kids on the gun range, please contact John Newpower at john.newpower@shavlik.com or 651-983-5904 or Sheryl Gallup at woodchick@comcast.net or 763-784-8667.
