The Nebraska Outdoor Education Center in Lincoln is hosting a new event for families and young adults: the Director’s Take Aim Games.

The Games will allow groups of up to seven to register for light-hearted competition in various shooting sports, such as indoor rifle, outdoor archery, tomahawk throwing, slingshots and more. Start times for the competition rounds are 9 a.m. and noon on Saturday, Aug. 21 at the outdoor education center, 4703 N. 44th St. All equipment will be provided; participants may choose to bring their own archery equipment.

Teams will rotate as a group to 4 different activities depending on the age of the youngest participant age 6 or older. All activities will have “play-along” options for participants ages 5 or younger.

Teams with participants ages 8 to 15:
