The Yolo Sportsmen’s Association in Yolo County recently received two state grants from the National Rifle Association Foundation, totaling more than $12,000. The club, which is open to the public, received $3,000 to purchase 20 new target rifles for the Junior Rifle Team, and more than $9,000 to purchase a new replacement trap machine for throwing clay targets.

The Junior Rifle Team had been using an assortment of aging firearms that had become difficult to repair and find parts for. The team is open to youths under the age of 17, and is offered by the Yolo Sportsmen’s Association at no charge. The team is supervised by instructors who have been extensively trained in firearms safety by the NRA.

The old trap machine had been in service for more than 20 years and was showing its age. The Yolo trap and skeet ranges are open to the public and are supervised by NRA-trained range officials.

The NRA offers grants to clubs on an annual basis. Clubs must prepare an extensive application and their requests are reviewed on a competitive basis. This is the second year in a row that the local group has been the recipient of one or more NRA grants. Last year’s grants totaled more than $10,000.
