Archery Tournaments
If you are planning on participating in any of the archery tournaments coming up in Minot, West Fargo or Edgeley, I would encourage you to sign up today.  The tournaments have been filling up fast and you don’t want to miss out.  Please call me if you have any questions.

Youth Protection Paperwork
If you are 17 turning 18 this 4-H year and you received a letter regarding youth protection paperwork, please return your paperwork ASAP to Kari at the office.

Also, if you registered as an adult volunteer and received paperwork to fill out for youth protection, please return that by March 10.  If you do not return your paperwork by March 10th, we will delete your enrollment as a 4-H leader. There at least ten adults that need to complete this process or your enrollment will be deleted.

Well that is a wrap for this week, Good Luck to all the teams participating in contests this week.  Watch for an update on results next week!
