Mother’s Day shoot a ball of fun for women
TABLELANDS women are being invited to broaden their horizons and learn gun safety in a Mother’s Day shoot at the Mareeba Pistol Club.
Club secretary Margaret Ellis said they encourage all ladies to give shooting ago.
“We are aiming to get more females, of all ages, to join the club and to give them the chance to try something new,” she said.
“On the day ladies will learn how to shoot, how to join and the importance of gun safety.”
At the present time the club has 110 members including about 30 females.
Mrs Ellis said it is an easy fun sport for people of all walks of life to get involved in and a great way to socialise.
“There are lots of people to meet and everyone has fun,” she said.
“A big part of firing a gun is about building confidence within yourself.”
She said she uses a .22 pistol which is easy and cheap to shoot. Those hoping to attend on the day must book as there are limited places.
They are also required to bring their own eye and ear protection and wear covered footwear. The shoot will be held on May 13 at 1.30pm at the Club on Roiko Road, Mareeba. For more information contact Margaret on 4092 4979 or Neale on 0417 797 456.
