This was fantastic. My 11 year old and 19 year old absolutely loved it. Yes, it rained. Yes the gnats were awful, but the instructors were fantastic. The safety/informational part was short but informative, keeping the younger kids engaged. There was plenty of shooting time, and it seems that everyone had a good time. Would do it again. FANTASTIC GUIDES!
