Event Details Details

The goal is to gather as families and friends while enjoying the outdoors while eating, shooting, splashing, and camping.

Optional camp out Saturday night; arrive any time in afternoon to set up camp.  Ranges will be COLD Saturday afternoon due to a Land Navigation class being taught, please be courteous and respectful to their training. Simple fixin’s of hot dogs will be provided for dinner around 1700, but feel free to bring something else. Charcoal grill and campfire will be available.  

Check in Sunday morning at 0900, safety brief 0930, fun target shooting games start at 1000 followed by “Painting with a Bang.”

A bare-bones lunch is provided (PB&J, chips, water), but anything else you prefer is fine to bring. Shooting games proceed until mid-afternoon, at which point the range will go cold once more as we all migrate to Lake City and lay claim to the public beach (weather depending). Ice cream is available at the Tasty Treat.

Regroup at MTC for more shooting games or pack it up to head home.
