Shooter of the Year

This week was our shooting club's annual Wild Game Dinner. This is a big event where awards are given and leaders are recognized, in addition to all the fun of the wild game potluck, wildlife identification games, and an awesome slide show of the previous year's events.

The biggest part of the night is the announcement of the Shooting Excellence Award. This award does not necessarily go to the best shooter, but to the person who best represents the 4-H spirit.

The winner this year was my own sweet Teen Daughter One. She was praised not only for her shooting skill, but her work as club treasurer, her willingness to help the youngsters in the club, her volunteer work with the homeless and so much more. I admit to shedding a few tears as her coach presented the award. We're all so proud of her!

If this all sounds familiar, it should. Teen Son tied for this award last year.

Oh, Sparky says to make sure to let you all know he won the wildlife identification contest for the second year in a row. Way to go Sparkster!
