The Van Wert County Outdoorsmen Association will hold a Ladies Day Only at the range May 3 from 9 a.m. until noon. This is for the ladies who are novices around firearms or who feel uncomfortable with them. The association will have .22 rifles and .22 pistols for the participants to use. Participants do not need to bring anything. Hearing and eye protection is provided.

NRA certified instructors and range safety officers will teach this class. Participants can be new to the shooting sports or just have questions they would like answered. This would be a great class for mothers and daughters to take together to learn more about firearms. The youngest ladies may be as young as 10 years old but must be accompanied by her mother or grandmother.

This is a free day for the ladies so there is no fee for this program. The first 20 ladies to register will be accepted. Preregistration is required to participate. For more information about this program, or to register, call (419) 203-5419. Remember, preregistration is required.
