Spring River Longbeards set youth day

Thursday, August 29, 2002

The Spring River Longbeards Chapter of National Wild Turkey Federation will hold a Jakes youth day at the Ash Flat ballpark Sept. 7 starting at 10 a.m.

This year will mark the third year the chapter has held the event. Over 60 children attended last year.

The event will include a gun safety class, tree-stand safety class, archery shoot, BB gun contest and a shotgun shooting range. Wild game will be served for lunch and there will be prizes for everyone.

The National Wild Turkey Federation Jakes program was established to help educate the youth of America for the purpose of improving the quality of the environment and conserving wildlife and other valuable natural resources.
