Aim Like a Girl ...#1- Cheyenne (Grades 6-12)
Aim Like a Girl ... If You Can will have girls jumping into the world of marksmanship and find out why it is so popular. Did you know the Chinese invented gunpowder and that since 1896, Olympians have been competing in the shooting category?! Experience first-hand with professionals how to shoot an air pellet rifle in one session. Juliette Low said ' ..Scouts should know how to load and fire a gun or other (rifle) so as not to be at a loss for means of defense should an emergency arise. It is one of the best means to 'be prepared' small rifle affords excellent training for the hand and eye!' The session will focus on safety and respect but will also explore America's female western heroes and different careers.
Girls will receive a specially made T-shirt, safety goggles and have the opportunity to earn two types of patches: 1.standard safety or 2.exceptional shot
Girls will be provided equipment and are not allowed to bring their own air pellet rifle or safety equipment. Girls must wear closed toe shoes and a long sleeve shirt (one will be provided).
Brings home the old saying that girls shoot better than boys! Shooting sports in America are rooted deep in our history. Learn about their history, laws, interesting careers, and even how to shoot.
