Ten years ago was the first JAKES day in Verdigre. This year, the Verdigre Creek Longbeards Chapter, NWTF, will again be hosting the day at Wildwood Acres in Verdigre.
Children up to age 17 are invited to attend the free event which will be Saturday, August 22. Registration begins at 8 am, and requires a registration/release form that must be signed by a parent or guardian. Lunch will be at noon, and the day will end at 3 in the afternoon.
Participants will do different types of shooting throughout the day, with a continual emphasis on safety. Anyone younger than 8 must be accompanied by a parent or guardian.
