Smallbore Practice Begins October 15
We’ll be starting smallbore practice in the Kenmore Clubhouse on Tuesday October 15, 2019 and continuing on Tuesdays until the end of the year. We’ll open the Clubhouse at 6:30 (traffic willing) and shoot from 7PM-9PM. Shooters will be able to practice in the prone, sitting, kneeling, and standing positions. This will be an open practice, so get that smallbore target rifle out of the closet and get a little trigger time in. Sure beats washing the dishes.
Additionally, we’re planning to enter a couple of Kenmore teams into smallbore league beginning in January 2020. Look for future announcements about smallbore league in The Sportsman Newsletter.

Fees include all necessary equipment (rifles, ammunition and targets).

Some shooters do bring their own rifles, a Coach reviews them before they can be used on our line. If you are considering providing a rifle for your youth (not necessary) please discuss this with a coach before purchasing to ensure it meets requirements.
Youth are assigned a spot on 1 of 4, 1-hour relay times which run at 7PM, 8PM, 9PM and 10PM. Each relay can accommodate 11 youth. Youth are assigned a relay by age and family need.

The following are acceptable pre-requisite classes and links to registration contacts. There are no exceptions, all youth must complete an approved safety course prior to shooting in practice. Youth can sit through practice, but will not be allowed on the firing line until an approved safety course is completed (Kenmore Range requirement).
