    Default Upcoming young lady shooter in need of some help.

    Folks, I am well aware that this forum's people are totally punch drunk from help/support/sponsorship requests and I normally avoid these things, however I have stumbled upon a young female shooter who I believe deserves at least some consideration in one way or another.

    Short of the story is I learned that one of our SAPS officers serving at my local Police station have a daughter who shoots the SAARA discipline and she is really talented, ranking high on the SAARA ranking list. She finished school last year and her father is now footing her varsity bill while she is not giving up on her dream to earn Green and Gold in the shooting sports. We know how much work and dedication it takes to get there in the tough SARA arena so that alone requires brass 'cajoolas' and she therefore has my vote. :-)

    She has compiled a document listing her (long list) of achievements so far and also how much funding she has saved up herself to buy the proper kit that would give her a sporting chance. To me it shows that this girl is willing to roll up her sleeves and make things happen with or without help. Now that deserves attention don't you think?

    So when you have time please peruse her plight for help/support in either finding her the right gear or generate the funds to do so. Her document can be downloaded here: https://drive.google.com/open?id=0B_...HN0M3B1bmxFTzg
    If anybody would be willing to assist with a precision rifle they are not using here is a good cause.

    Thank you and salutations.



    ps:
    I don't know how it works from here with regards to donations if there would be any forthcoming.
    Do we setup an account to control proceeds and then handover officially from ARF as pledge?

    Tula pledges R500.00 just give me a couple of days to get to the bank.

    I think any young lady who is as determined as that deserves a shot at it...no pun intended.

    Hope you putting money where mouth is Daviddddd!!!!!!!!!

    CK set up a raffle for my Falke 90 serial number 120.
    150 only tickets @ R150 each. That should sort out a Steyr.
    Done deal for all you avid collectors. This is a rare opportunity to do some good and maybe even own a piece of air rifle history.

    Let's get CK to get a raffle thread up and running, along with a couple pics of your Falke 90. Just waiting for payday from my side. I'm sure I could entice a couple people from to get on board as well.
