Help turn the tide of declining numbers of kids involved in the outdoors by attending the Compton Hunting & Fishing Club’s Youth Enhancement Program fundraising mixer on Saturday, Aug. 19, and you’ll also sample some great appetizers and have a chance to win one of several guns or a variety of sporting goods.

The first 75 people will also receive a custom-imprinted, stainless-steel vacuum wall cocktail tumbler (just like Yeti’s) to take up to the all-cash bar. Tickets are just $20, available at the door.

Held from 5 to 8 p.m. at the club’s private clubhouse (1625 Sportsman Drive, Compton), located on their park-like acreage on the border of Long Beach, near the 91 and 710 freeway intersection, the event will help fund an upcoming pheasant hunt for youth at the Tejon Ranch in September and to charter a fishing boat for a future kids’ trip.

The fundraiser is presented by the club’s non-profit 501(c)(3) organization, the CHFC Youth Enhancement Program, which aims to introduce kids into hunting, fishing, and the outdoors—especially those who lack the means to do so.

Kids from single parent households, where there isn’t the time, knowledge, or funds to take them. Kids whose parents may have fished or hunted themselves, but have let those activities slip away due to the demands of city life and haven’t passed on the joys of the outdoors. Boys and girls who would leave the city and computer games behind if only there was someone to take them out on the water or into the field.

Formed last summer, the volunteers in the Youth Enhancement Program have already presented a junior pheasant hunt, a kids’ fishing event at the Cabrillo Pier, and a weekend campout featuring archery and trap and .22 rifle shooting.

Last Saturday (Aug. 5) they presented a hands-on wild game care and cooking clinic where each participant learned to field dress, bone, and cook a wild cottontail rabbit and make venison and elk chili from scratch. They also watched master guides skin and quarter a wild boar, and saw how a taxidermist cleans and bleaches the skull.
