 The Wilton Fish and Game Association members and the WF&G Youth
Shooting League are preparing for their Annual Open House during the weekend
of the Wilton Blueberry Festival.  Mark your calendars for the date of
Saturday, August 2nd from 9AM - 4PM.   Location is 240 US Route 2 Wilton.
The day will begin with FREE Basic Archery Instruction under the direction
of a certified instructor from the University of Maine 4-H Shooting and
Archery Camp at Bryant Pond.  9AM-1PM.  Ashlee and Troy McCormick, members
of the Wilton Fish & Game, have recently taken a three day course for
Archery Certification at Bryant Pond Archery Camp.  This certification will
enable the club to sponsor archery events with certified instructors.  Also
during the day the outside range will be open 9AM-4PM with the availability
to try your skills at shooting the gatling gun, or trying your skills with
the shooting gallery.  This is a great opportunity for young and old to
learn the art of shooting with individual instruction on safety  in many of
the shooting sports.
        The trap range will be open from 1PM - 4PM under the direction of
Charlie Tappan.  This is another fantastic opportunity for many sportsmen
and women to try this sport as something new or to refresh their skills.
WF&G members have witnessed many shooters who haven't shot trap in years and
took this day to try the challenge.  It's such a great event !!  Bring your
ammo, hearing and eye protection.  Beginners are encouraged to join us.  The
cost of this event is $4.50 for 25 pigeons.  Members of the WF&G are looking
forward to spending this  time with citizens who like to enjoy the outdoors.

Members will be downtown with membership forms and tickets for their annual
fall raffle on Friday and Sat. during the Blueberry Festival.  The raffle
offers many great prizes this year.  The first prize choice is either a 12
gauge ATI Over/Under Shotgun, Kayak or Tablet.  2nd  prize is a pair of Hand
Crafted Youth Snowshoes and Harnesses donated by  Russ and Rachel Dubois of
UpCountry Snowshoes in Temple.  3rd prize is a Fly Fishing Package, 4th
prize is a Hand Crafted Walking Stick made by Warren Bryant.  A daily door
prize will be drawn for a one year WF&GA Club Membership.  The winning
raffle prize tickets will be drawn on Sept. 20th at the Farmington Fair Club
Booth.    Membership is always open, meetings are held on the 3rd. Sunday of
each month at 6:30PM.  (No Sept. Meeting because of Farmington Fair)  FMI

        A hamburger and hot dog lunch will be available at the clubhouse
through the youth league.  This is a fundraising event for the members to
help support their shooting expenses and programs.
        While watching the parade look for the Club Youth Shooting League
float.   We look forward to seeing you at the clubhouse.
