4-H offers archery instruction for youth

WARRENSBURG - Warren County 4-H is taking reservations for the 4-H archery program they are conducting over three upcoming weeks as an outgrowth of their effort to involve youth in the recreation of shooting sports.

The archery sessions, open to the public, will be held at 6 p.m. on Thursdays Feb. 3, 10 and 17. Children 9 years and over will learn fundamental safety requirements for handling a bow. Bows, arrows, tabs, arm guards, and targets will be provided for this event.

As with all NYS 4-H Shooting Sports programs, Warren County instructors are either nationally or state-certified. Safety is always the primary focus of the program, according to Cooperative Extension agent John Bowe..

To meet insurance requirements, all participants must be registered 4-H members to participate. There is a $5 fee for non-members which includes a membership in Warren County 4-H. The class is limited to 18 youth. Pre-register by calling 623-3291 or 668-4881.
