Sharp Shooters Take Aim

The Glens Falls Elks Lodge #81 will host their annual Hoop Shoot Competition this Friday, December 21st at 5:30 p.m. in the Queensbury High School Gymnasium. The local qualifier, which was rescheduled after Sunday's storm, will follow the original order, with the youngest contestants putting their feet to the foul line first.

Kids ages 8-13 are welcome to attend and test their sharp-shooter skills. Winners in each category (boys and girls) will advance to the district competition with the potential of sinking their way all the way to the finals in Springfield, MA. Top scorers for this local qualifier will receive an event t-shirt in recognition of their accomplishments.

Although a last-minute rescheduling of the event was necessary (due to a snowstorm), some 40 dedicated sharpshooters came to the Qby Middle School to test their skills.

Our role served as innovators of the new look for this year, as well as volunteer and participants.

The new standard has been set... lookout for the sharpshooters next year. Kudos to Mike Borgos of Borgos & Del Signore, PC for heading this fantastic local kids event.
