Safety and technique

St. Francis County was host for the Delta District 4-H O’Rama on Thursday at East Arkansas Community College. 4-H Members from across 25 counties in Eastern Arkansas participated in a variety of skills competitions such as horsemanship, public speaking, dancing and gun safety. In all, nearly 400 students, volunteers and county extension agents attended the event. Above Rex Roberg, State Shooting Sport’s Coordinator, demonstrates to a group of Junior and Senior 4-H’ers how to properly hold their BB guns before they line up for target competition. All shooting sports competitors are required to demonstrate their knowledge on a written test before the target shooting portion of the competition begins. Photo by Caitlyn Sweet.
