Day with dad hits the bul­ls­eye

Chinchilla News - - NEWS -

IT’S al­ways spe­cial for chil­dren to hang out with their dads – even more so when there’s guns, fire, and food to en­ter­tain.

That was the scene on Satur­day as fam­i­lies took the short drive to the Chinchilla Clay Tar­get Club for an af­ter­noon of fun.

Event or­gan­iser Bren­dan Day said he thought of the event as a way to give dads an op­por­tu­nity to spend time with their chil­dren.

“And try and pro­mote that bond and that re­la­tion­ship and cre­ate, ide­ally, a spe­cial event, a spe­cial day... some­thing mem­o­rable,” he said.

The day fea­tured shoot­ing ex­er­cises, while fire­fight­ers were on hand to give a demon­stra­tion, and there was plenty of craft and other ac­tiv­i­ties for all ages to en­joy.

The Chinchilla Scouts were on hand to run ac­tiv­i­ties, with group leader Leanne Fitzger­ald im­pressed with the ini­tia­tive.

“It’s great that there is stuff out there for the com­mu­nity, es­pe­cially for dads and kids to to spend a bit of qual­ity time to­gether,” she said.

Mr Day thanked the clay tar­get club, and busi­nesses CS En­ergy, Chinchilla Scouts, Wool­worths, Drakes, Mitre 10, Lions Chinchilla and McDon­ald’s Chinchilla for their sup­port.
