2022 shooting sports
It is that time of the year again where we are starting to prepare for our upcoming 2022 Shooting Sports season. The 4H Shooting Sports Club offers 6 disciplines such as Archery, Shotgun, .22 rifle, .22 pistol, Air Rifle and Air Pistol to youth ages 8-18. The goal of this club is to teach the youth of our community about firearms safety and conservation during weekly practices while enjoying friendly competition. While accomplishing our main goal of firearms safety, it is our hope that the kids will learn a great deal of responsibility and have fun while doing so. Parents who have youth interested in joining our Shooting Sports club, will need to attend our mandatory interest meeting at the Neshoba County Coliseum on Tuesday, January 11TH at 6:00 p.m. in the lobby. Both the parents and the 4H’er will need to be present. During this meeting we will discuss the profitability of enrolling in 4H as well as details regarding the Shooting Sports Club. The membership dues are $20 per discipline, and the paperwork and fees (checks ONLY) will need to be brought back to the office by February 11th. Please call the office at 601-656-4011 to RSVP to the meeting or if you have any questions. I look forward to meeting you all!!
