Our Shooting Sports Season…

Another fun-filled season of 4-H shooting sports ended months ago but the fun continues here as Sawyer practices for Nationals in San Antonio, Texas.  He placed high enough at the state competition to represent Montana in both air pistol and small bore pistol.  He had to choose between the two disciplines and has decided to go with air pistol and hopefully place high enough next year to go to Nationals again in small bore.  He leaves in just 3 1/2 weeks and is getting very excited!

All of the kids did very well this year and had bunches of fun.  4-H Shooting Sports is such a great program for kids; they learn about gun and bow safety, they have lots of practices with great coaches to give them confidence in their disciplines, they are able to compete against others and learn how to deal with all that comes with competitions, they have made new friends and get to travel to new places and *can* even pay your way to higher education.  One of the girls that shoots in air pistol with Sawyer has made the Junior Olympic team and is shooting in Europe this year as well as receiving a full ride scholarship to college!
