Episode 274 - Volunteering in the Shooting Sports
Volunteering is essential to the longevity of the shooting sports. Steve has been involved for so many years and have seen how people volunteer and eventually burn out. He talks about why it's important for everyone to volunteer in one way or another, whether it's to design stages, help build them, help with scoring or spreading the word. If you haven't done so already, contact your local clubs and get involved.
