Note to Shooters and Parents

Dear Skutt/Gross Shooters and Parents,

We are getting ready to begin the Fall instructional sessions for 2012 on October 13 from 2p – 4p at the Papillion Gun Club(5 miles south of Papillion on S 87th St).

The sessions will introduce you to the sport, gun safety and how to shoot a 12 g shotgun at blue rock. There will be guns available to shoot if you do not have your own  12g shotgun.  We do require all shooters to wear eye and hearing protection and should bring it with you if you have the items.

The rock fee of $3 per round and shotshells are the responsibility of the shooter.
