Lewistown Pistol Club is hosting the "Think of the Children" benefit match. This will be a 6 stage IDPA match. 100% of the $20 entry fee will be donated to the Prayer Child Foundation. The match will be held on Saturday June 16th. Check in will begin at 9:00 AM and the match will start at 10:00 AM. If you're interested in shooting this match, please preregister by emailing email@example.com
One week to go. Stages are pretty well finalized, maybe a few small tweaks. Looks like a minimum round count of 79. Several moving targets will probably up the actual round count.
There is still space available in this match. Email me at the above address if you'd like to register.
The following is a brief snippet from the mission statement of the Prayer Child Foundation:
"Many children, by no fault of their own, are in need of help each and every day. Many of the children and their parents pray daily for a healthier life. The mission of the Prayer Child Foundation is to have a hand in answering their prayers and helping these children to have the joys of a normal childhood. The Foundation seeks to provide this assistance to living children that are eighteen years old and younger with physical and emotional challenges"
Our first match was a success. Below is a picture of Ron Singer presenting the check from Lewistown Pistol Club to Prayer Child Foundation Vice President Curt Waisath.
I would like to thank everyone who attended the match, and those who helped with setup and staffing. We couldn't have done this without everyone's help and support. We were able to raise over $500 this year.
The night of the check presentation, I talked to Curt about doing another match, and he thinks it's a great idea. I'm already starting to plan for next year's match. I don't have any further details yet, but I'm hoping for something much bigger next year.
Anyone who hasn't done so yet, please take a few moments to visit the Prayer Child Foundation website http://www.prayerchild.org and see what they're about. While they're based in the Phoenix area, they support children/families across the US, and several Pennsylvania families have been helped. If anyone knows of someone who could use the foundation's assistance, please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org and my wife and I can work with them.
