Henderson County on goal in national shooting competition

As they calmed down in the line of gunfire, nervous excitement grew in Henderson County 4-Hers. Listening to Range Safety Officers’ commands, “Ready on the right, ready on the left, line safe, get started!” The first day of the 4-H Shooting Sport National Citizens’ Competition has started.

Six contestants and two volunteer coaches from Young Natural 4-H Club in Henderson County were among the many 4-H competitors competing in the 4-H national shooter competition. After district and state competitions, national experiments and months of practice, North Carolina had 31 4-H competitors representing the state, six of them from the Young Natural 4-H Club in Henderson County!
