BB Team to have first meeting on Thursday
On Thursday, Sept. 28 at 7 p. m., the Gordon County 4-H BB Team will have its first meeting at the Gordon County Livestock Pavilion. The BB team is open to 4th- 8th graders. This meeting is mandatory for those youth wanting to join the team and their parents, as the coaches will be providing an overview of the season, the practice schedule, discussing equipment requirements, and most importantly, reviewing safety procedures. The coaches will be able to provide guidance on what equipment is needed, so youth are not required to have a BB gun prior to joining the team. The fee to participate in the BB Team is $ 55 to cover the costs of registration for competitions, targets, county equipment, team t- shirts, and insurance requirements. Practices will be held weekly on Tuesday evenings through the fall, Thursday evenings in January and February, and then twice weekly on Tuesday and Thursday evenings beginning in March. District competition is tentatively set for Saturday, April 14 and state competition will be May 4- 6. For more information, please contact the Gordon County Extension/ 4- H Office at 706- 6298685.
