Practice resumes at the Mansfield Park Show Barn ay 6 pm, Wednesday, Feb. 12. Mike Towers, 4H rifle coach, said, "Okay, we've all had a lot of fun with hunting season, the holidays and the livestock show. Now it's time to get back to work. We will be competing in several shooting matches this spring and taking a couple of fun field trips, too."
Towers also advised, "We also want to invite any young shooters who want to be part of the 4H Rifle Club to come out and practice with us. Some kids had athletics or livestock show animals in the fall and couldn't shoot. We want to encourage any young person who wants to learn gun safety and marksmanship, and have a little fun too, to come out and practice with us."
