Tom Yackley helps his daughter Jane. Bart Merrigan watches from the sideline.

Tom Yackley says that when Sully 4H’ers went to the state 4H shoot in 2019, he saw some were competing in BB gun. “I asked about it, and it turns out, we already had the guns.”

There were guns, but no coach. “I thought, ‘that’s something to do,’” said Tom. “It’s a good program, and I decided I’m the guy to do it.”

Tom is joined in coaching the shooters by Bart Merrigan.

The free program is held on Sunday afternoons at 4:00 p.m. in the Agar Hall after 4H archery. “When everyone gets there, we do a safety briefing on what we’re going to do that day,” said Tom. “We usually shoot for about an hour, or longer if they want to.
