Madison City High Schools are increasingly competing in local shooting sports hosted by their schools. This year, Bob Jones and Sparkman H.S. shooters competed at the Alabama shooting site in Anniston Army Depot in an Air Rifle competition. Schools from all over Alabama took advantage of the excellent shooting facilities to gage their skills.
Post 229 is considering options to incease interest and participation in Junior Shooting Sports.
Contact Post 229 Commander, Larry Vannoy, if interested.
"The American Legion Junior Shooting Sports Program is a gun safety education and marksmanship program that encompasses the basic elements of safety, education, enjoyment and competition. Shooters use the .177 caliber air rifle. Both males and females can participate, through Legion sponsorship; disabled youth are encouraged to join, as competitive shooting is a sport that creates an equal playing field for all competitors. Contact your local Legion post, Sons of The American Legion squadron or Auxiliary unit for information about affiliating as a club or individual."
