Shooting Week, Black Single Parents Week, Family Week, more

The final days of May feature several celebratory weeks, mostly in the UK, running into early June: National Shooting Week, Black Single Parents Week, Safe Kids Week, National Family Week, National Barbecue Week, National Camping and Caravanning Week, and Isle of Man TT.

National Shooting Week takes place in the UK from May 28th to June 5th, 2011. The event "aims" to help people try shooting for the first time, promote respect for legal firearms, and encourage people to learn more about Olympic and Paralympic shooting events.

Black Single Parents Week, sponsored by The Black Single Parents' Network, honors those who do their best to raise their children in spite of hardships. The event runs from May 29th to June 4th.

Canada's Safe Kids Week, 2011, from May 30th to June 5th, asks parents to "Give your kids a boost!" In other words, use booster seats for children too big for car seats and under 4'6" tall.

National Family Week, May 30th to June 5th, is the biggest annual celebration of family life in the UK

National Barbecue Week, another UK event, is celebrated from May 30th to June 5th this year. Their slogan is, "It's (almost) Sunny - So Barbi!"

National Camping and Caravanning Week is yet another British event, celebrated from May 30th to June 6th, with a special event called The Big Pitch on June 4th. The ultimate goal is for the whole country to sleep under the stars on that one special night! Let's hope the weather is balmy.

And finally, to end with still another UK event, the Isle of Man TT takes place from May 30th to June 10th. For the life of me, I can't find any explanation of the initials "TT." It's on a need-to-know basis, I suppose.
