2012 Michigan 4-H State Shooting Sports Tournament: Relays and Squads
In order for the State Shoot to run as smoothly and efficiently as possible, competitors have been organized into relays and/or squads within events. Relays and squads are assigned randomly to avoid any advantage of one competitor or team over other, and also minimize the effect of changes throughout the day (wind, sun, heat, rain, fatigue, etc.) on team scores. While we understand the desire and some advantages of team members shooting together, we believe that reducing the weather variables and, more importantly, providing an opportunity for youth to meet, talk to, and compete next to new people from around the state provides a unique and valuable youth development opportunity.
Click on events below to see relays and squads for each event. Also note check-in and tentative shooting times for those events. Competitors not present for their check-in and shooting time may lose their opportunity to compete.
Relays and Squads will be posted below approximately one week before the tournament.
Check-In Times for Ranges:
- Shotgun Events:
Check-in is 45 - 60 minutes prior to the posted shooting time.
Check-in is at 9:30 a.m.
- Target Archery:
Relay #2: Check in 8:30 a.m. start shooting at 9:00 a.m.

- 3-D Archery:

Although these are not ‘squads’ or ‘relays’, your involvement is critical to creating a safe and efficient event! You will be able to find your assignment organized alphabetically by county and last name on the 2012 volunteer assignments list.
