A Varsity Scout team will join the Bountiful Lions Club to hold Wednesday night trapshoots at the Lions Club Trapshooting Range near the block "B" on the mountainside east of the city beginning Wednesday, Sept. 7.
Varsity Coach John Martin said his 10 Scouts, ages 14 to 16, from Team 6549, which meets at the Bountiful Utah North 10th Ward chapel, will help the Lions manage the shoots that will begin at dusk each Wednesday."We'll hold the shoots each Wednesday night until the annual Lions Club Turkey Shoot Nov. 19-20. This will be a good opportunity for shooters to sharpen their trapshooting skills for competition, duck hunting and the Turkey Shoot," Martin said.
Lions Club officials said they will be on hand each Wednesday to sell shooters any shot shells they might need. The cost of trapshooting Wednesday nights will be $3 for 25 birds, or clay pigeons and $2.50 for groups of five or more Scouts.
Special prices for large groups from organizations and companies may be available and special nights other than Wednesday may be available if reservations are made, Martin said. For more information about the shoots, contact Martin at 298-3283.
The Scout coach, who is a veterinarian at the Bountiful Small Animal Hospital, said funds his team earns from managing the shoots will go for the team's high adventure program, which will include floating the Snake River in rubber rafts and canoes and snowmobiling in Yellowstone and to pay for merit badges and rank advancement medals.
