ROBERT LEE – The Texas A&M AgriLife Extension Service office in Coke County will conduct their inaugural Coke County 4-H Invitational Shooting Match beginning with registration at 9:30 a.m. March 30 at the Red Canyon Gun Club in Robert Lee.
“The purpose of the match is to help area 4-H members sharpen their marksmanship skills prior to competing in larger matches such as the 4-H Shooting Sports Extravaganza April 20 at the Texas 4-H Conference Center at Brownwood and the District 7 competition set for April 26 at Baird,” said James Jackson, AgriLife Extension agent in Coke County.
The match is scheduled to start at 10 a.m. and is divided into two categories – light rifle on 5-bull’s-eye cards with rifles not to exceed 8 pounds and small-bore game silhouettes placed at ranges of 40, 60 and 75 meters. The two age divisions for both matches are junior ages 8-12 years old and senior ages 13-18 years old. Match rifles are restricted to .22 caliber with any type site firing .22 long-rifle ammunition only.
Registration is $5 per shooter for both matches.
RSVP to the AgriLife Extension office in Coke County by March 22 by calling 325-453-2461.
For more information contact Jackson at the same number or email him at JamesR.Jackson@ag.tamu.edu .
