All members or parents who would like to see the rifle discipline of the Cherokee County Shooting Sports program get up and running need to contact the new County Shooting Sports Coordinator, Clint Anderson via email (firstname.lastname@example.org) to be placed on the meeting list.
Mr. Anderson is already in his second year of coordinating the Archery discipline and has graciously volunteered to Coordinate the Shooting Sports Program as a whole, Providing insight and directions to those who wish to coordinate the other disciplines of the program (pistol, rifle, shotgun,black powder).
An informational meeting will be scheduled within the next month or so to give each of you a better idea of what it will take to start the rifle discipline, as well as what is going to be required of the volunteers who lead/coach the discipline.
I know that many of you have inquired about the rifle discipline saying that you are willing to help but "can't be in charge" for what ever reason. Nothing against any of you directly. However, if this discipline is going to get started, someone will have to step up and take the reigns.
Leading/teaching a project is a scary prospect and I completely understand your hesitance.
If this is something that you would like to have your kids participate in and you are willing to help, please consider this. As parents, we are the most influential leaders in the lives of our children and as such, we lead by example, whether we intend to or not. Stepping out of the "comfort zone" to take the lead teaches them to do the same.
Think of how proud you'd be to see your child take a leadership roll in the 4-H club, church group, school council, sports group, etc...
After all, 4-H is about creating the next generation of leaders by "making the best better".
