    There are a few events coming up for kids to get them interested in the outdoors. I got to see last year's event in Wenatchee and it was a really neat opportunity for families/kids. Stations set up for kids included casting demos and practice, an archery range, an air rifle range, a .22 range, a shotgun/clays range, a calling station for turkey and mock electronic turkey hunt, some fish print arts and crafts station, and plenty of other educational booths and activities.

    This year there is a big event in Snohomish on September 23rd, hope some of you can check it out - http://wdfw.wa.gov/hunting/huntered/hunt_fish_day.html

    And for those of you closer to Wenatchee, there is an event being held in Wenatchee at the North Central Washington Gun Club on the 16th. https://www.facebook.com/events/824451291046860/
    Also a flyer about it posted on the Wenatchee Sportsmen's Association page http://www.wsassoc.org/contents/eve...th-fishing-and-hunting-event?parent=About WSA

    Hopefully a few new hunters and anglers will come out of those events.
