|Brevard County Fair FITA Match|
The State 4-H Matches - Locally we had about 50 kids participating in the Florida 4-H State Matches giving kids the opportunity to show their skills in archery, trap, skeet, rifle and black powder. The state riffle match was held first, and Francis D. came in 6th place state wide in three-position air rifle, Intermediate Division. Next was the state archery match at the new Easton-Newberry Sports Complex near Gainesville. 20 of our top archers competed in FITA, Field and 3-D competitions with most of our club placing or doing extremely well. Our club is especially proud of Paul T., a 4-H Senior, who qualified for the National 4-H Invitational in June in the Sighted Compound Bow Division. Our shotgunners did well in trap and skeet over in Bartow, Florida. In this match, a child does not even place with a score less than 90 usually (of 100) broken clay targets!
