Family Day at Swift Ponds will be held on Sunday June 26th from 8:30am to 3:30pm.
Swift Ponds is located at 4927 E. County Rd. 36 Fort Collins, CO. We will have fishing (catch and release), archery, BB gun shooting, air soft target range, and trap shooting for beginners and experienced shooters! Lunch will be provided and we will have equipment for each of the activities, but please feel free to bring your own fishing and shotgun equipment if you wish. We will have range approved shotgun shells and shotguns.
Come take advantage of the five professional trap houses at Swift Ponds to shoot from! We will have on hand the Outdoor Buddies shuttle bus, track chairs, Bad Boy Buggy, Arctic Cat UTV, and ATV with go-getter. We will be having some bucket raffle items that you can buy tickets for chances to win some fun items for the whole family! This is a great way to help defer the cost of this fun day, but nobody is required to buy tickets! Just come and have a fun filled day with your family! Please make plans now to bring your family and friends to enjoy the day with Outdoor Buddies!
Swift Ponds has handicap accessible fishing docks for those on wheels so bring your sons and daughters, grandsons and granddaughters to make memories and build relationships.
Lunch will be prepared by members of the Jack Jonas family in memory of Jack who passed away on July 9, 2015. Jack was an avid supporter of Outdoor Buddies from its inception in 1984 until his passing. He was a longtime member of the Outdoor Buddies Board of Directors and made countless contributions to the success of the organization. One of Jack’s favorite activities was as chef at the annual Outdoor Buddies Family Day at Swift Ponds. He always made these outings fun for everyone and particularly enjoyed making jokes as he prepared the picnic lunches for the large crowds who were always delighted with Jack’s sparking personality. Jack is missed by his many friends at Outdoor Buddies!
