The Ohio Elks Association, through its lodges across the State host action filled soccer shoot competitions for kids up through U14.
Everyone had a great time. Congratulations to the entire Ohio team as they nearly repeated as Area Champions!
Also, congratulations to Benny Sellers and Bridgette Bible. Both finished 1st in their age group and won highest point trophies!
On March 1-3 Ohio went to Frederick, MD to defend our Championship from last year. While we had 2 of our shooters take 1st place and both took home the trophy for most points scored we came up short to our neighboring state of Pennsylvania.
So as we in Cleveland are use to saying “there’s always next year” which is where all the Lodge's can help. All of you who do not hold a soccer shoot— hold one. The district soccer chairman are all willing to help you, just ask. If you are coming to the April convention come to my seminar on the shoot.
