ARCHERY

REQUIREMENT MODIFIED - BEFORE COMPETING IN 4-H CONTESTS: 4-H Archery Club members are required to have participated in at least TWO meetings/practices. Due to the COVID-19 situation and having considerably less opportunity to hold meetings/practices, Washington County 4-H Archery (certified) Club Leader, Brian Jennings will be allowing youth who have enrolled in the 4-H archery project (by the June 15 4-H enrollment deadline) AND properly entered the Washington County Fair 4-H Contest (by the July 8 online deadline) to compete regardless if they have met the meeting/practice requirements. The certified 4-H shooting sports (archery) instructors/leaders will be taking the upmost precautions to ensure that our new, inexperienced (and experienced) shooters will be following proper safe shooting protocols during the 2021 Washington County Fair 4-H Archery Contest.
