Sharp Shooting Kids

I missed making a Saturday Night Retro post last night because I wasn't relaxing at home, listening to music.  Instead, I was watching my kids and their teammates win the Arkansas State BB Gun Championship!

Washington County Shooting Sports- State Champs!

Rachel's team won the whole shebang, and three of her teammates won most of the individual awards.  This team, made up of different members, has won for four of the past five years.  They are a great group of kids, and have some amazing coaches.  Winning here means they go on to compete at the national event in July.

One extra pleasant bit was that Joshua won an award for being the only participant to score 100% on the written exam.  He and Rachel both worked hard to learn everything they could, and they basically have the rule and safety books memorized.  He also shot his personal best, 331.  Great job Joshua!

Here are a few shots from the weekend.
They got a taste of what camp is like.

They had a great time, and I'm so happy for their team and coaches that all did so well.
