The Lakeshore Conservation Club’s third annual Wild Game Dinner & Fundraiser on Sunday, March 23, at the Gull Lake Center at Grand View Lodge in Nisswa is sold out with more than 400 people attending.
The event includes an early bird raffle, silent auction and games. The Brainerd, Pillager and Pequot Lakes high school trap teams are joining the club.
The dinner and fundraiser kicks off the club’s 60th year of family shooting sports. Youth shooting sports are expanding with the recent addition of the high school trap teams, Teach a Kid to Shoot Day, DNR firearm safety field events, Brainerd Area Youth Expo and the conservation club’s availability to area youth clubs such as Cub Scouts, Boy Scouts, 4-H and many church groups.
Proceeds from the Wild Game Dinner will be used to support the growing youth events and to improve the club’s facilities. In 2013, a cement handicapped parking space was created, reclaimed
crushed tar was laid on the road to the pistol and rifle ranges, as well as in the pistol range, and a shelter for the rifle range was constructed.
