MI: Michigan State University to open new shooting sports facility
Target shooters and archers have a new location to learn, hone their skills and brush up on hunting safety, with the opening of Michigan State University’s John and Marnie Demmer Shooting Sports Education and Training Center.
A public open house will be held 3-7 p.m. Oct. 2 at the Demmer Center, which officially opens Oct. 5.
The $3.5 million, 24,000-square-foot facility will allow the public to learn shooting safety and improve shooting and archery skills, in addition to housing MSU club shooting sports — small bore, air rifle and archery. Other potential uses include academic programs in shooting sports, law enforcement and related curricula and NCAA competitive shooting events.
