Upcoming Events

 

SATURDAY IN THE PARK

Hampshire County Parks and Recreation is proud to announce its fifth annual Saturday in the Park, which will be held on August 11 beginning at 10:00 a.m. at Central Hampshire Park in Augusta. Saturday in the Park is a celebration to commemorate Hampshire County’s rich parks and recreation heritage, and it also shows our appreciation to the citizens of our county for their support of the events and programs that HCP&R has sponsored over the past several years. The celebration has something for everyone. Events for teens and adults will be as follows: 10:00- Three-on-Three Basketball and Horseshoe Tourneys; 1:00- Cornhole Tourney. Kids’ activities will start at 11:00 a.m. We will have carnival games of all sorts, along with relay races, guessing games, and face painting. Kids who want to participate in the relays and other games should wear clothes that they don’t mind getting dirty and/or wet, because some of the activities could get quite messy. We will have a huge Water Slide and Bouncy House for the kids from 1:00 until 3:00. Kids may come at any time during those two hours and stay as long as they want to enjoy the fun. A free lunch for everyone, which includes a hot dog, chips, a cookie for dessert, and a drink, will be served from noon until 1:00 p.m. We will also have hourly door prizes, which include gift certificates to El Puente, Dairy Queen, and Main Street Grill; an Igloo 62-quart cooler; and a 32-inch flat-screen TV. This promises to be a great day of outdoor family fun and excitement. Bring a lawn chair and your sunscreen and plan to spend the whole morning and afternoon with HCP&R. Now that’s a day I know you don’t want to miss!

 

 

CLAY SHOOT AT NORTH RIVER RETREAT

HCP&R will sponsor a Clay Shoot at North River Retreat in Delray on Saturday, September 15, beginning at 10:00 a.m. The cost for the shoot will be as follows: 2 rounds of 25 clays each using your own shells will be $15; 2 rounds of 25 clays each purchasing shells from NRR will be just $25. As always, the loan of shotguns, vests, and eye and ear protection is free. Also, drinks and snacks are available at no cost. Due to environmental concerns, shells that do not contain lead shot are now required at North River Retreat. To meet this requirement, NRR has steel shot for sale at the range. You are welcome to bring your own shells, but they must not contain lead shot. If you are bringing your own shotguns to the range, please check with the manufacturer to make certain that they are compatible with steel shot.  Some older models of shotguns and/or screw-in chokes are not compatible and may pose a danger to the shooter. If you are interested in the shoot, get your reservation in as soon as possible, as there is a limit of 15 shooters allowed. Spots will be awarded on a first-come-first-served basis. To register, email us at hampshirecoparks@hotmail.com, or call us at (304) 822-7300 any weekday between 9:00 a.m. and 1:00 p.m. You may also register in person at the HCP&R Office at 90 North High Street in Romney during those same hours.
