DEADLINE: AMMO OFFER DUE APRIL 15

Federal Premium Ammunition and CCI have just announced a .22 Ammunition Direct Sale Program available to youth shooting sports organizations across the country. Orders should be for teams and not individual shooters. For 4-H, this means each county must place their own order and may only place one order per county. For ordering information, please contact doug.thompson@ces.uwex.edu or terry.boehner@ces.uwex.edu.

Certified leaders must work with their county Youth Development Educators to receive the proper authorization and must then be listed with the Youth Shooting Sports Alliance directory.

Orders will be accepted from April 1 to April 15, 2015, only…..Orders after this date will not be considered.

This ammo is specifically designated for youth programs. ABSOLUTELY NONE OF THIS AMMO IS TO BE SOLD OR USED OUTSIDE OF AN ORGANIZED YOUTH PROGRAM…IN OUR CASE, IT IS FOR OUR STATE OR YOUR COUNTY 4-H SHOOTING SPORTS PROGRAM.
