"Forget about "Call of Duty" on XBox, this is the real deal"

Not too sure I would have led with that, even with the benefits it offers.

Blasphemer:Students must be in compliance with HS league rules for grades, drug and alcohol and attendance policies. Hence a good choice for school support. I coach the the league at Wabasso and the program has been great. We're teaching a life long sport that is popular world-wide and an Olympic event. Kids from all backgrounds participate at our school and is co-ed. We had a young lady as a conference Champ last year. Kids can take this skill to compete in ATA, FFA and 4-H both also have state trap shooting competitions.

Blasphemer - Thanks for your question and suggestion!

First, the team established is part of the "Minnesota High School Clay Target League," so as such, the league requires High School approval before a team can join.

Second, if you're concerned with costs to the school, thanks to the efforts of LCPF, RRSC, Midway USA Foundation, NRA, Pheasants Forever and groups joining the program, and a small participant fee, the net expense to the school system is ZERO DOLLARS.

Third, if you would like to join a recreational league, RRSC does offer a local youth and adult trap league in the summer, I'd be happy to get you that info.

Finally, should you have any more questions, or like to know more about the program, feel free to email me at lyoncountyp***mail****, or call me at 507-829-9553.

All the best, Nick Simonson

Why does this have to be a school sanctioned activity. Park and Rec is MUCH more suitable.
