Fall officially begins next on Tuesday, September 22nd, and that means the fall hunting season is about to get into full swing. Come sharpen your wing shooting skills at Ravenwood Lodge this Saturday.
This Saturday, September 19th, from 9:00AM to 1:00PM, is the 7th Annual Justin Corbet Memorial Shoot at Ravenwood Lodge to benefit the Justin Corbet Foundation. Justin Corbet was a young man who tragically lost his life a few years back. He was an avid outdoorsman who loved introducing new people to the activities he enjoyed (hunting and fishing particularly). After his tragic death, friends and family set up this wonderful foundation in his honor. Each year the Justin Corbet Foundation presents grants to various organizations that promote outdoor activities for the youth. To date the foundation has awarded over $60,000 in grants, an amazing accomplishment. I have attended the shoot for the past 3 years and this is the second year in which we here at WIBW Channels have been a proud sponsor of the event.
I encourage everyone to come out and shoot. You don't even have to be a great shot to come out, have fun, and win great prizes. Each shooter gets a gift bag that is valued at about $20. Each shooter also gets a raffle ticket for every target you break which you can use to enter drawings for tons of great bucket prizes. Biscuits and gravy will be served from 8:30AM to 9:30AM and lunch is included in your shooting fee. Come join the fun.
