    up for auction is a english walnut blank set donated to the edwardsburg conservation club youth trap program by bruce bowen,for youth trap vests. bruce said the value of this wood was $600.
    we have had a good start to our program with 12 kids still shooting with us,our club has not had a youth program since 1986.we are waiting to hear this month on our nra grant application,and are planing a benefit hog roast this fall.we are planing to start registerd targets next season,and i think we will have our funding in place.
    after 3 months with the kids shooting together,i feel its time to invest in bruce's wish for them to have matching vests.
    auction starts as soon as this post begins,and will end sunday 5-31-09,at 6 pm est,reserve is set at $250.thanks to all who have made this happen for the youth,mark jones trap chair.

    thanks bill,i will post pics of the kids in their new vests asap.we do have some money that was donated by parents/members/and friends of the sport,so if we do fall short well be ok,but i would like to save that back for ammo,we have been shooting sunday mornings 3 practice rounds per kid and we supply about 500 shells per practice,club donates the targets,in these tough economic times any thing we can do to keep them shooting,and their parents not worrying about cost,we win.,mark
