The following information was received from Julie York, CEA, Upshur County:Recently the Upshur 4-H Shotgunners received a generous grant from the NRA. The Upshur 4-H Shotgunners are a fledgling 4-H club that serves the youth grades 3rd through 12th who are interested in shotgun sports including trap, skeet, sporting clays, and 5-stand/whizbang. These area youth compete around the state in numerous 4H competitions to represent Upshur County. The Upshur 4-H Shotgunners membership includes the 4-H District 5 HOA Shooter for two years running and also one of the Top 20 in Texas 4-H Trap Champions. The NRA grant ensures that 4-H youth shotgunners in Upshur County will continue to have the supplies necessary for continued success in the upcoming 2014-2015 4-H year. If you would like additional information about 4-H Shotgunning within Upshur County or if you would like to sponsor and support these outstanding youth of Upshur County, please contact the Upshur County Extension Office at (903) 843-4019 for more information.
