Page IOA Wednesday, May 9, 2018 Burnet Bulletin Burnet, Texas By Alexandria Randolph HLN Correspondent Burnet and Bertram 4H youths had the opportunity to take aim at boars, bears and even mosquitoes in a 3D practice shoot on Saturday morning. Four local 4H coaches or- ganized the annual shoot at the Bumet County Fairgrounds to give 4H kids and community members the chance to practice ,archery with a variety of three-di- mensional animal targets. The event was open to the public, and registration fees ben- efit the two local 4H groups. While indoor archery is more about training for proper form, outdoor three-dimensional archery helps youths to develop distance judgment, said Bri- an Klosterhoff, head coach for Burner and Bertram 4H archery. "Here they can gauge distance and practice with a textured tar- get," he said. Logan Cummings, a Burnet County 4H member, said he en- joys the three-dimensional shoot because of its challenges. "If you ever hunt that animal, you can find where the vitals are," he said. "It's a lot harder than with a flat target, and you only get one shot." Fellow 4H member Kayli Syx said "block targets are easi- er because you Can practice your form," but with three-dimension- al shooting, the targets are at an unknown distance, and lighting can play a key role. "Sometimes you get tunnel vision," Cummings said. Syx recently went to a state level 4H archery competition, where she placed within the top five competitors. Matt Riley of Leander brought his young son Wyatt to the range on Saturday to practice their new hobby. "I just got into archery re- cently," he said. "I try to take ev- ery opportunity to go to the local shoots. This is his first one." Klosterhoff said the annual m Burnet County 4H competitor Kayli Syx sights a three- dimensional target at the club's public shoot on Saturday. Logan Cummings draws back his 70-pound compound bowstring at the Burnet and Bertram 4H 3D Archery Shoot on Saturday. Aspen Nelson prepares to launch an arrow at the 4H 3D shoot Saturday morning. shoots are gaining so much pop- ularity that the club has planned to host them more frequently. "This is our third year doing this," he said. "We will host an- other in September." This is the first year the clubs will host both a spring and sum- mer shoot, Klosterhoff said. The event usually averages 60 shoot- ers, some of whom come from as far as Witliamson County and Glen Rose to participate. "I think we have a good turn out today. We get kids from mul- tiple counties that come out, and adults are welcome too," Klos- terhoff said at the event. "Each year we profit about $4,000 from the shoot. It goes toward buying more targets and equipment for the kids." Contributed This past weekend the Burnet, Burnet Middle School Tennis team travelled to Fredericksburg to compete in the district tennis tournamen, where Zaida Freeman (above) came out victorious. She won her quarterfinal, semifinal, and final matches with scores of 8-4, 8-1, and 8-5, She is this year's 8th grade girls singles district champion.
