La Crosse County 4-H Shooting Sports Program

Arrows in the Square Archery Program

When: TBD
Where: Arrows in the Square (N7681 Casberg Coulee Rd., Holmen, WI 54636)

The inaugural sessions of archery at Arrows in the Square were held this past summer. Due to support and interest, Shooting Sports leaders would like to extend the following survey to 4-H families to gauge interest in continuing the program this year. Remember, this program is a great way to meet your Archery Tournament requirements for the La Crosse Interstate Fair as an alternative to the traditional Archery and Pellet Gun Program this winter!
