New youth shooting team is looking for members

Mike and Jeannie Schaefer of Red Bud have enjoyed doing competitive shooting for the past few years, and now they are wanting to share their love of the sport by starting a local youth shooting team.

Jeannie noted that they had recently met the director of the Scholastic Action Shooting Program at an event, who had told them that there had been no youth from the State of Illinois in the pistol or rifle divisions at the last national competition. So the pair decided they needed to start a team.
