The county archery shoot will be held on Sunday, June 29, 2014 at Goodells County Park.
The county shoot will be held at Blue Water Sportsman's Club and 4 Square, with a date to be announced.
The State Shoot will be held here in St. Clair County at Blue Water Sportsman's Club on Saturday, August 9, 2014.
Exhibitors participating in the shooting sports project area must be 4-H members. This is a mandatory requirement for the 2014 fair. All shooting sports participants must shoot under a certified shooting sports instructor in the disciplin...e that they're shooting in. Certified shooting sports instructors will submit lists of their eligible exhibitors prior to the county shoot for verification. Anyone not endorsed by a certified shooting sports instructor and not a 4-H member will not be allowed to shoot at the county shoot. This action was taken to insure that we continue to have a safe county shoot for all 4-H participants.
