    NY Sub-Juniors need our help. There is a bill S4017-2011 in the NY Assembly that is bottled up in the codes committee. This bill would allow 10 year olds to compete as Sub-Juniors in NY. We need to contact our NY Representives to let this bill pass. It has already passed the NY Senate. The chair of the codes committee is Joseph Lentol of the 50th district. Write to him as well as the rep from your district. It is not fair that the NY state discriminates against these boys and girls when they can compete in other states.

    I would recommend posting this at NYShooters.net, I know there are a few people over there that will be more than happy to go and contact their reps.

    Just to demonstrate the potential of 10 yr olds, worth it I think, can't remember the date exactly, but a 10 yr old won the Ontario Provincial Shoot handicap championship. Think it was 07 for 08. the shoot is first of August so the picture is probably in one of the Sept to Jan issues.
