4-H Shooting Sports Team Wraps Up Season

The Dillon County 4-H Shooting Sports Club wrapped up their 2021-2022 season with a practice session and cookout at the range on June 3rd. With over 30 youth and adults in attendance, it was a fun time to fellowship at the range. Bill Aston, our shooting sports coach, taught club members about 22 Rifles and set up a friendly 22-Rifle target contest where rising freshman 4-Her, Jack Raia, won with the closest pattern to the bullseye.
Youth and adults also had the opportunity to participate in a corn hole competition. This portion of the evening was cut short due to the heavy downpour.
Despite the much-needed rain, the cookout was a great success and an excellent way to end the shooting season! The cookout also gave club members a chance to wish our senior shooter, Brenna She’ Miller, luck as she prepared to head to the National 4-H Shooting Sports Competition held in Grand Island, Nebraska at the end of June. **Stay tuned for an article covering her journey and the SC team bringing home the title of the 2022 4-H NATIONAL Shotgun Champions.
Dillon County 4-H wants to thank Bill, our parent volunteers, and the shooting sports team for making this our most popular 4-H club in the county! We are so grateful for all you do for our youth members.
The new 4-H year kicks off on September 1st.
