Lucky Clover 4-H Club Member on the National Johnson County BB Team

Abby, a member of the Lucky Clover 4-H Club and the Johnson County BB Team, recently competed at the 2017 Daisy BB Nationals where the Johnson County BB Team took third out of 71 teams.  The Johnson County team had to qualify at certain tournaments to qualify for the national tournament, and Johnson County won first place in all 3 qualifying tournaments. Abby, along with the other members of the team were invited onto the national team based on their match scores at the tournaments. At nationals, everyone on the team improved their scores. Abby performed her highest score in the prone and kneeling positions.

Abby has been shooting since November, 2016, when she first started with the SPIN club. She practices 1 to 2 times per week. Her favorite part of going to the national tournament was the extra activities that Daisy provided. Her favorite part of shooting sports was improving her scores.

Abby plans on participating on the BB Team next year, and she also participates on the Johnson County Air Pistol Team. She wants to work with the Air Rifle Team also, next year. If she would do anything differently, she would like to be more patient with shots she wasn’t happy about and move on from there. “One shot at a time” is what the coach tells her.

Great Plains SPCA Donations

Member of the Lucky Clover 4-H Club have been collecting boxes, old t-shirts, and paper towel rolls for the last several months. Following our February 14,2017 meeting, Nathan A., a member of the Community Service Committee, showed the members of our club how to make dog and cat toys to donate to the Great Plains SPCA.

For the cats, club members made Hidey Houses – These were made out of boxes covered with a t-shirt, with the neck as the opening.  Cats love hiding in them! Club members also made 3 different cat toys out of toilet paper rolls – 1) Ring Ball (cut rolls into thin circles and fit them together into balls), 2) Sunshine Toy (cut edges of roll into tabs and fold tabs outward, creating a “sunshine” look), and 3) Treat Rattle (fold down edges of roll, and fill the roll with cat treats).  For the dogs, club members made pull toys made out of braided t-shirt strips. Our club made 25 Hidey Houses, 19 pull toys, and 67 cat toys. That’s 111 toys in all, thanks to the members of the Lucky Clover 4-H Club.
