The outdoor shooting activities lasted until dark and then the group had a potluck dinner afterwards. The reason for the shoot was to raise much-needed funds for the WAEI College Programs. Bret Roller, Executive Director, joined us for this fun event.

WAEI (Wildland Awareness Education Institute) receives the Denver Sables support because it aligns with the SCIF-Education Sables mission to pass on the conservation message to future generations. WAEI is doing just that with college programs that teach the students the North American Conservation Model, help them understand the economics of hunting and involve them in actual hands on shooting, archery and other outdoor activities. For many students, this is the first opportunity to handle a firearm and hear the true facts regarding hunters and their support of wildlife. Many of the students go on to take hunter safety courses following this class. We are proud to be one of WAEI’s sponsors.
