Saturday Practice 2014-11-08

We are having practice this Saturday Nov 08 at New Beginnings Church from 8:30 to about 11:30 am. We will go over how to score and do a little bit of scoring during practice. Parents, please listen in so you know how to do it–especially to help the youngest ones–and to ask questions. I’ll update this post later with a score card so it can be looked over beforehand.

Also remember we are collecting food can items so you can bring them to practice.

–UPDATE–:  Here’s a link to the B4HAC indoor score card we’ll be using for both our indoor league (and for the state postal league).  For comparison, here’s a link to our traditional indoor score card.  Here’s a link to an *unofficial* TX 4-H postal league indoor score card so please do not submit it to the 4-H state office.  The official score card is here.
