Safety, firearms clinic for women in sight


MILTON-FREEATER - Sign-up is now open for this year's "Women on Target" safety and firearms clinic.

The event will be held Saturday at the East End Rod & Gun Club range, located on Milton Cemetery Road east of the city. There will be a morning and afternoon session, with each session limited to 50 participants.

Sponsored by the East End Rod & Gun Club and the National Rifle Association, the event is open to women and girls only. Any shooter under the age of 18 must be accompanied by a parent. Male parents may bring a child and register with her but may not participate.

According to Verl Presnall, club president, registration is open on a first-come, first-served basis, so early sign-up is encouraged. Applicants are asked to indicate their preference of morning or afternoon sessions, but if classes fill up they may be given the option of the other session.

The range will be closed to other activities that day due to the event.

Information is available at or at 541-203-0124 or by emailing
