The Pagosa Pathfinders youth organization will hold its first meeting for 2009 in the Extension Building at the fairgrounds on March 27, at 6 p.m.
The Pathfinders is a local organization open to kids and young adults ages 8-18. The participants of the Pathfinders learn and compete in the Youth Hunter Education Challenge (YHEC), which includes the following eight disciplines: shotgun shooting, rifle shooting (.22 LR), muzzleloader, archery, orienteering, wildlife ID, hunter safety and hunter responsibility.
The organization is funded through grants from the Friends of the NRA.
This informational meeting is for everyone interested, including parents, as we encourage parental involvement. If you have any questions, contact Boyd Anderson at 946-9299, or Larry Melendy at 946-9737.
