SHOOTING – The Spokane Junior Rifle Team, which has produced several world-class shooters since it was founded nearly 50 years ago, will hold an open house for prospective members on Thursday, Aug. 21, at the Spokane Rifle Club’s indoor range along the Spokane River.
“Many Spokane kids have attended college on NCAA shooting scholarships and several have gone to regional, national and international competitions, including the Olympic Games,” said coach Michael Furrer.
He should know. His daughter, Amanda Furrer, shot her way from the Spokane junior team to the 2012 Summer Olympics in London.
Boys and girls age 10-18 interested in marksmanship as a sport or hobby are invited to the informal introduction, he said.
