A free cookout is provided for all participants and volunteers following the day's outing on the lake.

     Boaters and anglers interested in participating can register as volunteers online at http://cavettkidsfoundation.org/volunteers.

    Each boat will be assigned up to three campers and a counselor, depending on boat capacity. Tackle, bait and life jackets for campers are provided, though boaters are encouraged to bring additional life jackets if they have them in sizes adult small or adult medium.

About 75 volunteers and boats will be needed for the event.

Sporting Arms Museum to open in Springfield

The National Rifle Association's Sporting Arms Museum will open Aug. 2 in Springfield, Mo., at the Bass Pro Shops store.

Covering about 7,500 square feet, the museum will have more than 1,000 guns on display and original prototypes and paintings from the Remington Arms Company, shotguns from the American Trapshooting's Hall of Fame and the full collection of guns from the Pachmayr Foundation.

“This museum houses a fantastic collection, from the firearms of Theodore Roosevelt and John Wayne to historic military pistols and engraved Colt revolvers of the Old West,” said Bass Pro Shops founder Johnny Morris. “It has something for every firearms enthusiast.”

The museum will be open every day from 10 a.m. until 7 p.m.
