Armstrong Trap Team needs your Help!!
« on: April 25, 2017, 10:10:48 AM »
Hey the kids need your help please!
They are the future and this sport gets them involved
In many other great outdoor activities.
Time is running out!
You can Make a difference in a young persons life.


I just signed the petition "Robbinsdale Armstrong High School Athletic Director: Allow Trap/Skeet Participants to Earn a Chenille Letter." and wanted to see if you could help by adding your name.

Our goal is to reach 500 signatures and we need more support. You can read more and sign the petition here:

Caught a note on face book about  the Big Lake high school trap team,school won't put a pic of the team in they're year book because the team pic shows them with  tools of their trade "shotguns" pretty chicken crape in my book.

This is a great program for these kids,sure wish they had this as a class when I was in school.

Update:

APR 27, 2017 We requested a meeting with school administration to see HOW we could make this work - how we could break down barriers and open pathways. Sadly, we were declined. We are moving forward and will be presenting our petition signatures, research and plan to the school board on May 8th. Please help us get to 500 Plus!!  signatures!

Thank you!!

In.  My daughter shot archery in high school and there was a process that needed to be followed in order to make it a lettering sport.  There was a bit of drama, but eventually it got done.

Just an update we are currently at 865 to sign or petition  a liitle short of the 1000 goal we have but we have until 4:30pm Monday 5-15-17 night.  So if you havent signed please do so!!  Or if you have post link on your face book. My Daughter is the First Girl captain and has Vountered to represent the team infront of the school Board . She has more gut than the old Man. But is an advid outdoors person. She has been my Hunting and fishing Partner since she was 5 and she will be 19 in July. She believes the same as the old man that one person can make a differance so please be that one person!

jk, have the kids been given any particular reason from the school board why they won't allow them to letter? Seems like some PC bs to me. Good luck.

There are few things as frustrating as school district politics:  tons of money, lots of power, little or no accountability.

Petition Commitee is saying to Hang tight!
Wish my Boss would understand this if I told him to Hang tight and its been 4 Years.
Just feel that If 80% of the trap and skeet teams can figure it out this should be a problem that can be solved.With in a reasonable time frame. :coffee: :scratch: :coffee: :scratch:
