4-H Archery Fun Day slated for this Saturday, Oct. 24
Special to the Citizen
The Morgan County 4-H archery team is excited to announce that the annual Archery Fun Day is scheduled for this Saturday, October 24 from 10:0 a.p. to 2:00 p.m. This fun filled event will allow for plenty of opportunity to show off your archery skills or learn how to shoot! Beginners are welcome and encouraged to come to this event. Those who want to learn more about how to shoot or about the 4-H Archery program are asked to attend this fun filled day at the 4-H archery range. The archery range is located behind the new Morgan County High School gym.
Lunch will be provided by the archery team. They will be serving hotdogs, chips and drinks which will be provided for participants and their families. So, plan to make it a fun family day at the archery range. Bring the family and enjoy the event.
Although there is no cost for the event, parents of participants are required to fill out a 4-H Medical Release Form which can be completed at the range or it can be downloaded at www.ugaextension.com/morgan. Parents are also encouraged to join the fun. Coaches and 4-H volunteers will be on hand to instruct and help new shooters. This will be a great opportunity to find out if the 4-H Archery Team is something that you would like to be a part of this year. The state 4-H archery competition will be held in April and the team practices will begin in December. A mandatory orientation meeting to organize the 2010 4-H archery team is also scheduled for November 2. Students ages 9-19 who are residents of Morgan County and either enrolled in the public schools or are home-schooled are eligible to participate on the Archery team.
Make plans to join in the fun and learn about the 4-H archery program by attending the archery fun day this Saturday. If you have any questions, please contact the 4-H office at (706) 342-2214.
