The 4-H Shooting Sports will be hosting a shooting sports general interest meeting on Thursday, Dec. 3 at the Dunham's Bay Fish and Game Club. The meeting will start at 6 pm and cover the basics of 4-H shooting sports as well as offer laser shot and archery activities. Any interested youths over the age of nine are welcome.
Shooting Sports fosters responsibility and helps youth acquire knowledge, skills, abilities related to firearms safety, and sound decision making.
There are, however, some limitations to participation due to New York State policy. Ages 10-12 can participate in archery, living history and air rifle only. Ages 9-10 can participate in archery and living history only. These policies are in line with the NYS 4-H Shooting Sports guidelines and are designated based on the "Ages and Stages" curriculum outline.
All participants must be fully enrolled in 4-H prior to participation. Enrollment will be available the night of the event. Registration is required and can be done by calling Cornell Cooperative Extension at 668-4881 or 623-3291.
