“Shoot For Abbi” Charity Event

Abbi Monaghan is 10 years old and living with Cystinosis, a rare disease for which currently there is no cure. Most money raised for Cystinosis research is done through private efforts such as these.

Come out and bring the family. Children are encouraged to participate. Don't have a gun? Never shot before? Not a problem. We will have guns and plenty of ammunition.

Concerned about safety? Did you know that the shooting sports are one the safest sports? As long time shooters, we realize that you might be concerned about bringing your children to an event like this. Safety is our business and we will have many safety instructors to ensure everyone's safety. There will be prizes including a gun raffle (see YouTube videos), a BBQ and a 50-50 draw.

There is a $20 entry fee, payable at the door (all proceeds go to Cystinosis research). Included in the admission fee: 2 targets, (one practice, one elimination) and a hamburger or hot dog and beverage. Shooters can better their score by purchasing an additional target and 10 rounds of ammunition for $5.00 each. You can also shoot steel for fun ($2 for 10 rounds).

For those bringing their own rifles, this is a 22LR rifle match, fired from the prone position. Adults and children will have separate sections. Any firearm action is permitted that requires the shooter to take their finger off the trigger to chamber another round (i.e. Bolt, Lever etc.). NO SEMI AUTOS.

You are invited to Shoot for Abbi.

When: Sat. Aug 6, 2016, 10:00 am - 2:00 pm (rain date Saturday Aug. 13)

Where: Decew Gun, 3042 Cataract Road, Fonthill, ON, CANADA L0S 1E6

While participants can pay at the door, to ensure there is plenty of food for everyone we are encouraging people to pre-register.

Obviously a bit of a commute for me - but I sure wish you guys all the best.

Would have liked to participate as it's not that far from me, but I'm out of town on the weekend. Best wishes for a great turnout.

About 60 shooters attended and when all was said & done we cleared just over $6000 for the Cystinosis Research Foundation. The event also got a very positive write up in the local newspaper. Thanks to all who came out to support this event.

Well done! - way to show the flag and help get a positive image of shooters out there! And support a charity on top of it all.
