Grand Island, Neb. – -( Pheasants Forever (PF) and Quail Forever’s (QF) 2009 Focus on Forever Workshop will be held this July 17-19 in Grand Island, Nebraska. The annual event provides participants with information and tools needed to develop future stewards of the land.

To be held at the Holiday Inn, Grand Island – Midtown, the 2009 Focus on Forever Workshop will work to inspire PF/QF chapters and individuals to provide outdoor adventures that connect youth and their families to wild places and the critters that live there. Seminar topics will include, among others, “How to Teach Wingshooting Skills to Kids,” “Reading the Landscape with a GPS,” “Creating Outdoor Adventure Clubs,” “Starting a Local Shooting Team” and more.

“The future of pheasants, quail and other wildlife depends on having adults and mentors who possess a passion for passing on our outdoor traditions,” said Rich Wissink, PF/QF National Youth Programs Specialist, “This will undoubtedly be the strongest Focus on Forever Workshop to date, as we’ve compiled an unmatched list of presenters and topics. We’ll be utilizing Grand Island’s Public Shooting Park, and we’ll also be examining some award-winning programs from the Nebraska Game and Parks Commission.”

PF/QF chapters are encouraged to send more than one participant to the Focus on Forever Workshop in order to take advantage of as many sessions as possible – and it may even net your chapter a new gun. For each participant a chapter registers, the chapter will receive one ticket for a special youth programs drawing. The more individuals a chapter sends to the workshop, the more chances to win either a Beretta Super Black Eagle II 12 gauge ($1,500 value), a youth programs activities box ($500 value) or youth merchandise ($250 value). PF/QF chapters are encouraged to register as early as possible, as last year’s workshop was filled to capacity.

The cost of the 2009 Focus on Forever Workshop is $250 per person, which includes workshop registration, instruction materials and meals.
