4-H Shooting Sports Program Update

The spring session of Bull’s-Eye 4-H Club will NOT begin on March 14 as listed in the 2021 4-H Calendar. Depending on the ever-changing pandemic climate, the shooting sports instructors ARE planning to hold a spring session. They have a few more details to work out to insure the health and safety of all involved. More information will be posted soon as to when and how the program will be offered.

Cancelled – Bulls-Eye 4-H Club Fall Session

The Bull’s-Eye 4-H Club will NOT hold its 2020 Fall Session due to risks associated with COVID-19 and the coronavirus pandemic. We’re hopeful the 2021 Winter Session can be held to teach youngsters about the safe and responsible use of firearms/archery equipment and living history skills. Please continue to follow recommended best practices for healthy habits and comply with social distancing requirements to keep our communities healthy.

Bull’s Eye Club – NOT Meeting in March

The Bull’s-Eye 4-H Club will NOT be meeting in March as directed by Ohio State University Extension’s State 4-H Office due to the suspension of face-to-face instruction of lectures, discussion sessions, seminars, and other similar classroom settings.

One of the best ways to prevent the spread of viral illnesses is to minimize the circumstances in which individuals might interact and transmit the diseases.

The safety of our community is our top priority. OSU Extension realizes that the COVID-19 policy guidelines will cause disruption, but the risk of not acting outweighs the inconvenience of these temporary measures. Towards the end of March, we will share updates as more information becomes available to decide if Bull’s-Eye 4-H Club will have an abbreviated Winter Session April-May. Learn how OSU is working to keep our communities safe.

Thank you for your understanding, and stay healthy.
