Minnesota DNR Offering Archery Equipment Grants
« on: April 30, 2004, 08:02:05 PM »
ST. PAUL, MN--A new Minnesota Department of Natural Resources (DNR) grant program provides archery equipment to local school-based archery programs. Schools across the state can apply directly, or non-profit organizations that will be donating the equipment to a school may also apply. The DNR requires a cash match for the program. A complete archery equipment package costs $2,600, which means a cash match of $1,300 is required by the DNR. Schools that don't need complete packages because they already have some archery equipment, or schools that have had other archery-related equipment donated may apply for partial equipment packages.

Several state archery and conservation organizations, such as NAHC Life Member Mark LaBarbara's Outdoor Heritage Education Center, have expressed an interest in sponsoring local schools to raise the matching funds for the program.

The DNR has made $35,000 available for the program, and the National Wild Turkey Federation has donated another $13,000 to the effort. The DNR will award grants until all funds are expended.

Physical education teachers from participating schools will be required to take the National Archery Association Level 1 certification course, which is 12 hours in length. Certification courses facilitated by the DNR will be offered throughout Minnesota during the coming year. Local school districts may provide continuing education credit for this training depending on their local policy.

For more information, e-mail the DNR's Ryan Bronson at Ryan.Bronson@dnr.state.mn.us.

In all seriousness, the Marlin is a great rifle, too. I own a Model 60, one of the best rifles ever made.
Brownings are nice, but in terms of quality AND accuarcy AND ruggedness, it's hard to beat the Marlin.
California sucks that's it.
