“That’s all we do is shoot, one thing or the other. We shoot rifles, pistols, shotguns, muzzleloaders—you name it. Young people enjoy shooting. They enjoy learning about shooting. We found they need to know safety and that’s the biggest thing that we teach them,” said Spencer.
Spencer has several advisors that assist her. Together they focus on making the shooting experience safe, educational and enjoyable for all.
RMEF also provided funds for air rifles, air revolvers and both camper and instructor training scholarships for a public community event in Akron where the 4-H Summit Shooters took on the role of mentor.
“Our archery group was excited that we were requested for the second year to set up an archery range open to the public at the annual River Day celebration at Munroe Falls on May 30. Our more experienced club members along with a couple of advisors actually taught important safety rules to individuals of all ages as they attempted their first time at shooting an arrow. We had about 100 participants. It was a very exciting day!” added Spencer.
Kudos to Grandma Mildred and her 4-H Summit Shooters for helping spread a love of shooting, hunting, safety and ethics to the next generation!
