Thank you to our club volunteers who helped with the 2018 Paul and Jean Hoshiko Memorial 4-H Golf Tournament in Windsor on June 1. The Colorado 4-H Foundation event raised nearly $20,000 for 4-H youth programs across the state. Click here to read about the event.
You can also view a gallery of photos taken by 4-H member Gabriel Dupon from Larimer County. And you can read more about Gabriel in this Member Spotlight.
Here’s an aerial video from the golf tournament. You can watch the “launcher” that was discussed at the June meeting in action at 0:58.
On Saturday, May 5, the Big Thompson Bowhunters will be tearing down all target butts, replacing the bales, and rebuilding with new banding and wire. They will also complete general clean-up around the range.
This is a great opportunity for community service time to help improve our local archery range.
Work will begin at 8:00 a.m., and should finish up around 12:00 p.m. Lunch will be provided and you can bring your bow and shoot after the work is done as well!
4-H has been allowed the ability to use the Lon Hagler Archery Range at no cost to 4-H, and in return we help with their range work day. Cindy will be gathering some paint so we may be able to paint more of the benches. The Big Thompson Bowhunters has also installed a sandbox right behind the sight-in target range, so if you have any sandbox type toys you would like to donate I am sure it would be appreciated.
Volunteer at Antique Show
We have a great fundraising opportunity to help our shooting sports program!
Rebel Junk Market will be at the First National Bank Building at the Ranch on February 22–24, 2018 and they need our help. Load-in shifts will require lifting, so we need some strong folks for this! Fundraising dollars are used to help with such things as equipment, targets, range-time fees, and help for Seniors who are traveling to compete at Nationals.

If you have questions, please call Cindy Buckardt at 970-481-7993.
Shooting Sports Booth at 4-H Carnival
Help run the Shooting Sports Skeeball Booth at the 4-H Carnival on March 3. We expect this booth to be very popular so you won't be bored! The money raised will be used to help Larimer County Shooting Sports members who are attending Nationals. This is a great opportunity to pitch in and support the Larimer County Shooting Sports program.

By the way, extension agent Megan Blaser had her little boy on November 15th, and his name is Alten. Extension agent Keeton Ehrig’s wife had their little boy on December 12th and named him Otto.
We have pictures from our community service, Turning Pens for the Troops. Thank you to everyone who took time last Sunday to contribute!
