The Lancaster County Barnstormers and the Pennsylvania Game Commission are partnering to provide fans of both sports, and particularly their children, a unique opportunity at Clipper Magazine Stadium on August 31, 2010. Gates will open at 5 p.m. for those children, ages 8-16, wanting to participate in the bow and arrow activities. Regular gates open at 5:30 p.m. and game time is 6:30 p.m. The Barnstormers will be providing excitement on the field as they play the Southern Maryland Blue Crabs and staff from the Pennsylvania Game Commission will offer a variety of hands-on free clinics where kids can try their hand at international-style target archery or laser-shot and beam-hit shooting simulators. The archery range will be set up in the outfield prior to the game. The shooting simulator ranges will be conducted both prior to and during the game. These activities are designed to teach safe and effective shot selection and marksmanship fundamentals.
