One Last Hurrah
Shooting sports are over for the year. Teen Son and Teen Daughter had their final competition this last weekend. And it was a big one. The one that they work so hard for this past year.
It was the MYHEC (MI Youth Hunter Education Challenge) competition, a two-day event. Each of the 180 kids from all over Michigan had to compete in eight disciplines: 3-D archery, shotgun, rifle, muzzleloding, wildlife identification, orienteering, hunter safety trail, and hunter safety exam.
They had loads of fun competing alongside their teammates. The most fun for me was seeing all of their hard work pay off. Teen Son came home with two medals and Teen Daughter came home with a whopping seven medals. Their teammates did equally well. In fact, the senior team took away the gold as the overall best team.
Now I'm going to sit back, relax, and enjoy my last week of summer before we start school.
