Winston County 4-H Shooting Sports Club Hosts Friendly Competition at New Skeet and Trap Range

The Winston County 4-H Shooting Sports Club recently hosted the "Winston County Shoot-Out" at their new skeet range near Addison. 25 4-H'ers from Marion County, Winston County, and Cullman County attended the event, which was mostly a training session with a little competition thrown in to make the practice interesting. In the Senior Division, Marion County placed 1st, Cullman County 2nd, and Winston County 3rd. In the Junior Division, Cullman was 1st, and Winston was 2nd. Certified 4-H Shooting Sports Volunteers, Kenny Robinson and Tim Robinson, where pleased to see their new range being used to train young sportsmen. Jay Conway, 4-H Regional Extension Agent, said "This range will be an asset for 4-H Shooting Sports for years to come." Additional practice sessions and competitions are currently planned to prepare the 4-H'ers for the 2009 State Shotgun Championship in Childersburg on May 9th.
