King George 4H Shooting Team Wraps Up Great Year

The King George 4H Shotgun Club had a great 2016 season! The club would like to thank everyone who helped make the season such a success - Northern Virginia Gun Club (NVGC) for the great facility and for providing targets from the clubs shotgun budget as well a club sponsors Friends of NRA and the Virginia Shooting Sports Association, and Terry Misch, King George Extension Agent. Below is a summary of the team's most recent accomplishments.


2016 4-H Shotgun Championships at Conservation Park of Virginia.
On September 24th, five King George Shotgun Club Members attended the 2016 4-H Shotgun Championships at Conservation Park of Virginia. The King George 4H Team consisted of Jackson Parker, John Parker, Paul Sevier and Joseph Parker and Jordan Stevens. 4H certified instructors Jon Yagla, Joe Primerano and Jody Sevier, also attended. Jordan Stevens finished second and Paul Sevier finished in fifth in the Junior Division high overall championship. Jordan Stevens received a nice trophy for his efforts. Jordan tied for first in wobble trap with a perfect 25 (and got his ball cap blown apart by fellow shooters at the end of the Awards Ceremony). John Parker posted his first 25 straight in skeet. Only five shooters posted 25’s all day, and we had two of them!
