If you haven’t made plans for the weekend yet, there’s still time to schedule some fun. Here’s the roundup.
Today’s weather promises to be perfect for a little hunting, and while the closest I’ve ever come to the sport would be Duck Hunt (that game rocked rocks!), for those of you who are more adept with a gun, North Dallas Young Life is hosting their annual clay shoot today at Elm Fork Shooting Range. Registration begins at noon, and the event will also include a barbecue, lots of prizes, and a concert. Proceeds will enable local middle- and high-school students to attend summer camp, so dust off the ole shotgun, and head out to the range for a great cause.

Spring has definitely sprung, and with this week’s showers, gardens should be looking more lush than ever. If you’d like to view some vibrant blooms and carefully cultivated yards, join Northaven Park Neighborhood Association for their annual “Backyard Garden Tour.” The tour, which takes place on Saturday from 9 a.m. to noon, will travel through several backyards as well as the gardens at Withers Elementary and the Da Vince School. RSVP here.
Child Care Group’s “Great Adventure Hunt – ‘License to Hunt'” is at 5:30 p.m. on Saturday. The fundraiser is touted as “the most mind-bending, intellect-pressing, brain-busting competition this side of the equator.” Apparently teams of six solve complex clues as they navigate through the Plaza of the Americas. I haven’t been on a treasure hunt in at least a decade, and this definitely sounds like more fun than the typical cocktail-party fundraiser.
Also on Saturday, Norwood Flynn Gallery is hosting a reception for its newest, youngest artists. Booker T. Washington’s senior visual-art students have a juried show up in the gallery. Swing by at 6 p.m. to meet the future Picassos.
