Lloydminster & District Fish & Game Association will be hosting a Project Mapleseed on Wednesday July 10, 2019.
Project Mapleseed is a one day event that teaches you the shooting fundamentals and the safe handling of firearms. It is open to shooters of ages and skills levels. Project Mapleseed is designed to be challenging, educational, engaging and fun for the whole family. As part of the experience, Project Mapleseed will share the importance of marksmanship in Canadian history in order to help preserve our firearms heritage and freedoms in Canada.
What to bring to Project Mapleseed – a .22 rifle, 400 rounds of ammunition and a teachable attitude. Of coarse you can bring other rifle calibers, it is just that a .22 rifle is recommended because of its low recoil and ammunition costs. The most common rifle seen at these events is a magazine fed 22LR semi-automatic (10-22). As for sights, what ever is on your rifle will work – iron sights / red dot / scope. A rifle sling (USGI sling) is necessary for Project Mapleseed. They will teach you how to use your rifle sling for support while shooting. Bring a stapler for posting your targets. Also, a comfortable shooting mat, camping pad or yoga mat to shoot from as we will be shooting off the ground often. Last year I used a couple of moving blankets from Princess Auto.
There is an excellent video on what gear to bring to a Project Mapleseed Event: https://www.youtube.com
As host club, us members get first crack at tickets before it is opened to the general public. Space is limited to 15 people, and last year it sold out fast. The link below will guide you Eventbrite’s webpage to purchase your tickets.
