    June of 2019 marked the 15th + year for the free Youth Shotgun Classes held at the White Oak Rod and Gun Club. The idea for the classes came from two past presidents of WORGC, Robert Coester, and Edgar Soyke. Both of these Gentleman, now deceased, had a passion for teaching safe firearm handling to the youth of our area and supporting WORGC’s mission statement “To Support Youth Outdoor Life”.

    I was privileged to have been asked to be an instructor for the first of these classes, and have been involved ever since. This year we had 55 young people, 12 girls and 43 boys, register for the classes.

    There were three separate classes, June, July, and August, each being held on Tuesday evenings from 6:00 till 7:30 in which the students were taught safe firearm handling, proper care and maintenance of a firearm, while having fun learning how to break flying clay targets.

    This year, as in past classes, we had young people that never handled a firearm of any type before to young boys and girls that have taken the classes in the past and have become quite good shots. It should be noted that each year I have parents express their gratitude to “The Club” for teaching their children a skill they were not quite comfortable with teaching themselves.

    The classes are underwritten by The NRA Grant Program and WORGC. The instructors are volunteers from the membership of WORGC.

    I would like to personally thank the Gentleman who gave their time and talents to the youth of the area.

    Bill Balaban, Brian Calabrase, Brian Cerra, Bill Eckenrode, Paul Krystocek, Jeff Parry, and Greg Viceli.

    Gentleman you are making a difference.

    All volunteers helping with youth programs must hold a current Pennsylvania child abuse history clearance to be in compliance with Title, Pa. C.S. Chapter 63. Child Abuse Clearance.

     The clearance is obtainable at www.compass.state.pa.us/CWIS.

    This a relatively new law and it does apply to volunteers helping with all WORGC programs that serve children. Some of these programs are, Youth Day, Youth Shotgun, Junior Hi Power, Hunter/Trapper Education and Rimfire Fun Shoot.

    If WORGC is to continue providing these programs our volunteers must have this clearance. This would include everyone on site the day of the event, registration, kitchen, station helpers and walkers.

    I have obtained the clearance online and promise you the process is not complicated. There is no cost for the clearance if applied for as a non-paid volunteer.  The clearance is valid for 60 months.  After the application is completed and submitted it will take several weeks to be processed.

    The programs WORGC provides to the youth of the area are vital in passing on our heritage and right of firearm ownership to the next generation.

    Please go to www.compass.state.pa.us/CWIS and get your clearance ASAP and send a copy of your clearance to:

    Bill Eckenrode, Recording Secretary, WORGC
