“This year we took six individuals to the State 4-H shooting competition in Raton for the shotgun and archery categories,” said Audra Lyon of the Lincoln County Extension services. “This group is very interested in becoming more competitive and with these extra funds, can purchase the proper equipment to help the local club be more useful and productive.”
Lincoln County 4-H shooting Sports is open to boys and girls ages 9-19 with a goal of youth development. Through participation in firearm safety training and shooting sports activities, young men and women receive the opportunity to learn responsibility, sportsmanship, self-discipline and other qualities critical to the development of productive citizens.
