Woods and Waters correction
In Sunday's Berkshire Woods and Waters column, there was a reference to a National Rifle Association and Massachusetts State Police firearms safety course that will be held at the Cheshire Rod & Gun Club. The event is actually on Sunday, Dec. 3, not Saturday, Dec. 2.
The course will run from 9 a.m. until about 4:30 p.m. The cost is $100, and covers all ammo, safety gear, class materials, a hardcover NRA textbook, food and a $10 gift certificate to Pete's Gun Shop.
