Well, it is already September and we have scheduled our last two meetings (shoots) for the Ruffles & Rifles 4-H Shooting Sports. As each year of the 4-H calendar comes to a close I ask myself are we doing this right, could we be doing this better, and what are other clubs doing?
The answer to the last question will often provide insight to the first two. We don’t have any other clubs in our county, well not officially just yet, but there is hope on the horizon. We have had some interaction through regional and national training with a few other 4-H Shooting Sports club instructors, however, and some of us have remained in contact. Most of the contact has been through email and Facebook.
In the interest of answering those questions that I always seem to have at the end of the year, I decided I would spend a little time on Facebook and see what I could find out about what other 4-H Shooting Sports clubs are doing. To that end, I have compiled a large list. It is by no means a comprehensive list (some of the clubs have groups that are only visible to members-which I can understand).
Here are some links from some of our fellow 4-H’ers that I would like to share with you.
