John W. Melville Memorial Youth Shoot Day
Redmond Rod and Gun Club Sunday, October 4th, 2020
In recognition of John W. Melville, youth will shoot free at the Redmond Rod and Gun Club, Sunday, September 13th. John passed away in August of 2019. He was a young outdoorsman who enjoyed hunting, shooting, and fishing. As an avid shooter and supporter of the club, his family and friends contributed funds in his memory to benefit youth shooting activities.
Youth, aged seventeen and under, accompanied by an adult, will have the day to receive instruction and guidance in shooting sports of their choice: Archery, Cowboy Action, Pistol, Rifle, and Trap. Each Discipline will have a dedicated youth site and equipment available for this memorial FREE youth day. Make this a family day for developing your skills and getting ready for the hunting season. Picnic areas are available at the range and mobility limitations are accommodated.
The Event Schedule will be available at each check in area. Donations will be accepted at all Discipline check in sites. Take the opportunity to make this recognition day an annual free youth event.

Archery General Regulations & Rules
The Archery site consists of 5 different stations, each has 2 shooting positions and 3 to 6 targets. Targets range from 10 to 100 yards away. All targets are bags(21) all the time or 3D(4) the first weekend of the month so no broadheads are allowed. Broadheads would require specific foam targets that we don't have.
While the bags are rated for crossbows our layout is not. We could have special crossbow times and make adjustments if there is any interest.
With archery shooters coming out we are hoping to increase our hours and be open either earlier or later in the day by having more volunteers to open and close. One of this courses attractions is that you are not standing inside on a precisely measured course.
Wind, sunlight, temperatures, elevation, obstructions are all factors. We hope to add sun angles and darker shadows to our differences with the later hours. Ideally our evening hours would coincide with ladies night at rifle/pistol so 5 till 7 or 8pm on the 2nd and 4th Tuesday evenings.
Hours are 10:00 a.m. til 2:00 p.m. Saturday and Sunday
1st and 3rd Wednesdays 10:00 a.m. til 2:00 p.m.
2nd & 4th Tuesdays evenings 5:00 p.m. til 7:00 p.m.
