Champaign County Shooting Sports 4-H Club had the first meeting at the sheriff’s range on May 21. Since they moved to the range, the groups that used guns such as Rifle, Advanced Rifle, Pistol, Basic Rifle, and Sport Rifle all had a lesson on how to use and keep ammunition safe. First, you always want to keep it locked up unless it is being use. Second, you never should use ammo you find on the ground. Finally, you should always check your ammo to make sure it is the right type before firing. They also did some target practice. The archery group worked on sights and also target practiced as show in the picture. Also, as a reminder Button Day is June 3, from 9 to noon at the Farmers Daughter restaurant.

For The Love Of Everything 4H Club held meetings on 4/23 and 5/7. Pledges were led by Ben Rogers and Carter Titus. Our awesome recreation leader, Carter Titus, set up a soda pop exploding game outdoors for the 4/23 meeting. Club members tried to guess which soda would spew higher when Mentos were dropped in. The darker sodas worked better, with diet Pepsi winning. On 5/7, club members made potted flowers for Mother’s Day as a recreational activity. Club members have been working on projects and project books during meeting time. The club earned $93 from the Scentsy fundraiser. Unfortunately, the club wiener roast at the Roger Rutan farm scheduled for 5/21 was postponed due to weather. We are looking forward to having a great time on 5/28 instead!

Mad River J.R. Livestock had a meeting on May 10. The health tip from Zack Burroughs was “make sure you are wearing boots when in the barn.” The safety tip from Ashely Good was to “be careful around farm equipment since they’re everywhere and might not be able to see you.” For the rest of the meeting members sat in small groups and did mini interviews to practice for our interviews at skillathon. We also discussed important club dates and the future dates for this year’s 4-H camps.
