4H Youth State Shoot

The shooting sports club is having a match this Saturday, March 22, 2014 for 4-H youth to qualify for the State Shoot. The youth will be competing with air rifles, BB guns and air pistols. We are looking for someone to work the registration table (1 person) and scoring the targets (2 people). Registration starts at 8am so the registration table volunteer would need to be there by 7:45am. The volunteers that want to score targets will need to be there by 8:30 until 3pm depending on number of youth shooting. The contest starts at 9am.
It would be nice if whomever comes and helps is comfortable being around guns. The person to contact if they are interested in helping is Steve Bertsch, Black Hills Shooters Leader, at 605-484-1372.

Bring your gloves, rubber boots, yard wagons, chain saws, garbage cans, rakes, shovels, pruners, trailers, and bobcats to make the cleaning process easier and less strenuous, not to mention, safer.

We will be cleaning the winter straw from enclosures, pulling weeds, trimming storm-broken trees, stacking-out firewood, poop scooping, and organizing necessity items.  We might even be moving some small buildings, if we can find enough willing volunteers.

We won’t stop there, we invite you back again for our super 4-day construction event April 25-28.  These days we will skirt the Yurt and construct a wrap-around deck to finish it off.  Not only that the black bears from Ohio need a catch-up pen built and…
