Youth Shoot for Free Day
A Club wide event that was started in Fall, 2020 and has been held in September since. The day provides an opportunity for youth accompanied by an adult to shoot for no fee at the rifle, pistol, and archery disciplines, and to do the same for 1 round (25 targets), at Trap and Sporting Clays/5-Stand. This year the event was on Sunday, September 11, 2022.


FUNDING
Youth programs at RRGC are primarily supported by donations from the membership and patrons. These donations have come in the form of materials and money, and through redemptions of beverage bottles and cans donated to the Club.  For additional information about the Youth Donation program, contact Brian Ferry 
at 541-923-3136 or bferry@bendbroadband.com.


Redmond Rod & Gun Club is committed to providing a quality setting where youth shooters can safely shoot.  The increase in participation and positive direction of the youth program are encouraging!  This occurred because of the support of our dedicated volunteers, the Board, Membership and the shooting Directors.  Thanks and stay tuned for future program announcements.
