It was windy and slippery, but that didn’t dampen the spirits of more than 30 junior outdoorsmen and women who came along with their parents to Kids Appreciation Day at the North Peace Rod and Gun Club. The day started off with a variety of indoor and outdoor shooting events and ended with the trophy awards. Kacie Peever was the lucky young woman and Devon Shawchek the lucky young man (pictured below with NPRG President Guy Lahaye) who went away with the rifle packages donated¬†by Scott Ebert of Northern Snubbing and Dwayne Shawcheck of Essential Well Services.
