4-H, FFA, Shelton Leadership Travel Program Virgen de los Angeles Sat Aug 2 (All Day Event) Today — 2 hours ago

According to Wickipedia
"Virgen de los Angeles Day is a Costa Rican holiday celebrating Costa Rica's patron saint, the Virgen de los Angeles, also known as La Negrita.

According to tradition, La Negrita, the Black Virgin, is a small (less than a meter tall), probably indigenous, representation of the Virgin Mary found on this spot on August 2, 1635 by a native woman. As the story goes, when she tried to take the statuette with her, it miraculously reappeared twice back where she'd found it. The townspeople then built a shrine around her.

In 1824, the Virgin was declared Costa Rica's patron saint. La Negrita now resides on a gold, jewel-studded platform at the main altar in the Nuestra Señora de los Angeles Basilica in Cartago. Each August 2, on the anniversary of the statuette's miraculous discovery, pilgrims from every corner of the country (and beyond) walk the 22km from San José to the basilica. Many of the penitent complete the last few hundred meters of the pilgrimage on their knees. This basilica is equally visited by tourists and locals."

This safety course is more than a firearm safety course. Instruction also includes ethics and responsibility, conservation and wildlife management, wildlife identification, survival and first aid, specialty hunting and tree stand safety. All first-time license buyers must first successfully complete a hunter education course. There are no minimum age requirements, however, classes are taught at a sixth grade level and tests must be completed without assistance. Courses are a minimum of 10 instructional hours, and certification is accepted in every state and province in North America. Due to hunter education, hunting accidents have decreased by over 50% during the last 20 years making hunting one of the safest recreational activities. The course takes place Wednesday, August 6th and Thursday August 7th beginning at 10 AM and will end at 4 PM both days. The course will be held in the media center of Grandy Primary School. The course itself is FREE and we must have a minimum of 10 people registered to conduct the course. On Friday, August 8th, we will have an optional Range Day. This range day will open to all participants from the NCWRC Hunter Safety Course. There will be a cost of $10 per participant to cover cost of clay targets and insurance. The range day will begin at 10 AM and will conclude when all participants have had time to shoot at least one round. The range day will be held at the Camden Law Enforcement Range located off of Hwy 158 East in Camden across from the Hyman and Robey business building.
