      Trap Team Fundraiser Shoot and BBQ

      Hello to everyone in Arkansas, specifically the Northeast,

      My name is Jim Magee, and I teach high school science in Brookland. I am also the head coach for our schools Trap Shooting team, the Brookland Bearcats. This is our second year to compete in the Arkansas Youth Shooting Sports Program (AYSSP), and we were fortunate enough to have 3 squads of students go to regional tournament last year, and 1 squad qualify to go to the state tournament.

      Like most schools, this is an activity that does not receive any funding through the school budget. Everything we need we have to pay for with money raised through sponsorships and fundraisers. We were very fortunate last year to have 23 students on our roster, and feel even more fortuante that this year we have had 71 students sign up and ask to be on the team. We do not want to turn any students away, but this means that we will have to do even better with our fundraising this year.

      On Saturday, October 17th, we will be having aour big Fall fundraiser.

      "Friends & Family BBQ, and Fun Shoot".
      It will be an open schedule event from 10:00am til 5:00pm.
      It will be at our newly constructed (mostly complete!) trap range east of Brookland on East School Street (1831 CR 936)
      Ticket cost is as follows:
      $20 ticket: 1 meal, 1 box of shells (12 or 20 gauge), 1 round of Trap
      $15 ticket: 1 box of shells (12 or 20 gauge) and 1 round of Trap
      $8 ticket: 1 meal

      Myself, and 1 other assistant coach are NRA certified shotgun instructors and will be on hand to offer tips and pointers to those who want them.

      This will be an outdoors "picnic" type event, so bring a blanket and maybe a chair. Plan to get comfortable, hang out, shoot some Trap, and stay a while.

      At 2pm there will be a main event "Faculty vs. Students" shoot off. 5 of the students who went to regionals will shoot in a match against 5 faculty members voted on by the students.

      If you have any questions at all, please do not hesitate to email me here, or through our team email address at:
      bearcatstrap@gmail.com

      Thanks and we hope to see you there!

      It sounds like a lot of fun. If only I weren't 1100 miles and 19 hours away.

      Being from the great state of NY, its hard for me to comprehend a high school having a trap team. Won't the exposure to guns at that young age turn all the students into serial killers?? (just kidding!!!) That's what we're lead to believe here.

      Keep up the good work!

      Actually there is some push back from some people in the community about guns and students. But the reality of it is that in this area (or neck of the woods if you prefer!) pretty much every student has access to a firearm. The key to each student is where they get their knowledge and training. We emphasize safety first and foremost in the program. This way students are getting the proper training and information.

      Skynyrd1911, aren't you in this area? hope to see you saturday!
