It was wet, rainy and chilly this past Saturday.
The softball game was cancelled, but we trekked on out to the shooting competition anyway.
Mike took the two competitors out early to get there on time and I headed up later (about an hour away) with everyone else.
Again, the kids were all divided up into teams--there were 4-H shooting sports members from all over there, Morris, Hunterdon, Warren, etc. counties. 4 people from various clubs to a team. Then they each had to make the rounds to the different stations--air rifle 1, air rifle 2, shotgun, 3-d archery, archery games, and quiz bowl.
Quiz bowl for MJ
Sporting the ear protection
Archery games for Bean
Mike helped out with Bean's team,
which is why there are more pictures with her in it.
Air rifle 2 (I think)
I have to say, Bean had never shot an air rifle before..no practice..zilch.
She. Did, Amazing!
She needed some help pumping the rifle, but her aim was right on.
For this station, they shot at balloons, then ping pong balls and then lollipops.
Maybe she's found her nitch?!
We did not have any ear protection, so we couldn't go any closer,
but this is MJ shooting shotgun for the first time.
He did hit a clay bird on one of his shots!
Not bad for a first!
MJ's turn at air rifle
After all was said and done, we all gathered to go over who placed where.
Bean's team took 3rd in air rifle 2!!!
MJ's team took 1st in air rifle 1!!
Super Excellent Job, Kiddos!!
