Thank you to the kids who suffered through the cold on Saturday at King Soopers: Marley, Nate, Emmalin, Liam, and Josh. This group managed to sell their 25 designated tickets, plus they sold a total of 375 tickets and collected $98 in cash donations!
The Sunday group of Justin, Wyatt, Alexis, Ava, Elsie, and Walter sold 300 tickets and collected $82 in donations before they ran out of tickets to sell!
The total for the weekend was 675 tickets and $180 in cash donations.
Cindy picked up 500 more tickets, so let her know if you’ve sold yours and want more.
One note about turning in tickets: Please remember to put them in numerical order, smallest number on top. If you bring them to the February club meeting, put them in an envelope with your name on it or wrap a piece of paper around them with your name to identify your tickets and funds. There will be many members returning tickets at once.
Thank you for working hard to support 4-H!
The 2018 Leader of the Year award goes to a couple, and one could not be recognized without the other: Ian and Sam Webb.
Ian and Sam embody the words “To Make the Best Better” within the Larimer County Shooting Sports program. They have both willingly completed training to serve as leaders in the .22 Rifle, Air Rifle/Air Pistol, and .22 Pistol disciplines, and Sam completed the Range Officer Training. They have served as superintendents for .22 Rifle and then they took on .22 Pistol once it became a county program. They have helped those programs grow by requesting necessary funds from the NRA Grant Program and our own Larimer County 4-H Foundation.
Sam has stepped up and assisted with the enrollment of all Shooting Sports disciplines for the state competitions, as well as the collection of the registration fees.
This summer when our county extension agent left just before the county competitions, Sam attended every event to score using the Orion system. This was especially challenging since this was the first year that Larimer County utilized the system for every discipline.
The Webbs are very open to suggestions within their programs and willing to make changes. If you’re ever in the need for assistance you can count on Ian and Samantha to be there.
Congratulations, and thank you, Sam and Ian!
This year, High Country Handiworkers member Tait Simpson has been given the Diligence Award.
Tait is susceptible to the heat and that can make it difficult for him to participate in Shooting Sports when the weather is not favorable outside. Tait is involved in multiple Shooting Sports disciplines, which can often be challenging. He worked very hard at many practices and endured the heat to improve and compete.
Unfortunately, Tait had to withdraw after only one round at one of his county competitions, making him ineligible for state. However, he and his teams did well enough to qualify for state in two other disciplines. At both state events his team claimed 1st place. Although it was disappointing to withdraw from one discipline, Tait persisted and competed well in his other disciplines. This proved to be a positive example of resilience and a great experience for Tait! Congratulations!
Thank you to Fire Station 3 for hosting our Cloverbuds for a tour and a talk about fire safety.
