We are excited to announce that our Camden County 4-H Shooting Sports Team is currently preparing for their sixth 4-H Shooting Sports Competition, as well as assisting fellow team member, Sarah Margaret Andrews, to compete at the National 4-H Shooting Sports Tournament in Grand Island, NE in June 2017. Sarah Margaret Andrews is a member of the NC 4-H Muzzleloading Team that will be competing this summer on the national level. She is the very first Camden County 4-H’er to achieve the honor of participating on a state 4-H shooting sports team to compete at nationals. The National 4-H Shooting Sports Tournament will be held in Grand Island, Nebraska the week of June 25 – 30, 2017.

To assist Sarah Margaret Andrews and her family with the travel, lodging, registration, and equipment expenses of this competition, the Camden County 4-H Shooting Sports Club is holding a 4-H Fun Shoot fundraiser on Saturday, June 24, 2017 from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. in Newland. The proceeds from this 4-H Fun Shoot will go towards Sarah Margaret’s expenses as well as to help the Camden County 4-H Shooting Sports Club. The club is currently seeking donations to assist with the fun shoot such as the following:

Youth will compete to qualify and advance to the state level 4-H shooting sports competition to be held on Saturday, September 23rd at the Millstone 4-H Center in Ellerbe, NC (approximately 4.5 hours away).
