We invited potential sponsors out to see our mission statement in action and to shoot with the youth. Attendees met the phenomenal group of volunteer coaches and leaders that work with over 40 youth on two skeet teams and one SASP (pistol and rifle) team. Thank you to those who have committed to sponsoring the 2017 GYG team!
