Registration for the Hannibal Area Shooter’s Education Youth BB Gun League will be held at 6 p.m. Thursday Oct. 29, at the Admiral Coontz Recreation Center. The program is sponsored by Hannibal Parks & Recreation Department.

There will be a short introduction of the program and a question and answer period for students and parents at that time.

The free program, for youths between the ages of eight and 16, will teach ethics, sportsmanship, safe and proper handling of firearms, wildlife management and animal identification. This is not a hunter certification course.

The class will be held from 6:30 p.m. to 9 p.m. on Thursdays, from Nov. 5 to Feb. 26. There will be no class during school holidays or weather-related closings.

Volunteers are needed to help. Interested adults are asked to attend Registration Night at the Admiral Coontz Recreation Center.
