Classes are free for women ages 15 and older who have not previously taken the classes, which began in 2011. The deadline for pre-registration is Thursday, Aug. 27, and class space is limited. Each student must submit a signed waiver.
Certified National Sporting Clays Association Level 1 instructors Chuck Mallory and Randy Coss will lead the classes, which will cover the fundamentals of clay target shooting.
