Gov. Manchin to help dedicate sporting clays shooting range at Cacapon Resort State Park
First West Virginia State Park to have sporting clays facility
Monday, September 10, 2007, 2 p.m.

Gov. Joe Manchin III will help dedicate the first sporting clays shooting range to be built in a West Virginia State Park Monday, September 10, at 2 p.m. at Cacapon Resort State Park near Berkeley Springs in Morgan County, according to Division of Natural Resources Director Frank Jezioro. Construction on the Wobble Clay Shooting Range began this summer at a section of the park where it was determined that noise levels would be minimal at areas normally used by park visitors.

“We are always looking for ways to make the parks more attractive to a larger number of people, and the more activities we can offer, the more likely people are to visit,” said DNR Director Jezioro. “We believe that this type of facility, with guns, shells, and eye and ear protectors furnished, is a perfect place to introduce new shooters, especially youngsters and women, to another outdoor activity they can participate in for the rest of their lives. Overall, we believe this added attraction at Cacapon will complement the other activities already offered there, including golfing, hiking, horseback riding, fishing, and swimming.”
