Rifle and Pistol Club to host annual pistol shoot
MANISTIQUE – On Aug. 11, “Send a Kid to MDA Camp” will hold its 2nd Annual Pistol Shoot Competition at the Manistique Rifle and Pistol Club, located eight miles north of Manistique on M-94.
The shoot will begin at 11 a.m. and last until 5 p.m. Food and beverages will be available for a donation, with all proceeds going to the Muscular Dystrophy Association and its summer camp in Green Lake, Wis.
The Green Lake MDA Summer Camp also includes children from the Upper Peninsula. Currently, there are four children from the U.P. who attend the camp. The cost of one child attending camp is $800 – this is paid for through donations, with no cost to families.
Last summer, Send A Kid To MDA Camp Pistol Shoot raised $800. This year the goal is to meet and hopefully exceed that amount to subsidize the cost of one child attending summer camp.
The shoot is a PPC-style pistol shoot, 9mm center fire handguns or larger caliber with open sights. Awards will be presented for first, second, and third places in the classes of “Expert”, “Marksman” and “Sharpshooter” for both revolver and auto handguns. There will also be a team event.
All competitors will be eligible for prizes during a drawing after firing lines are complete. Awards and prizes have been provided through donations. None of the money raised is used for these items.
