New record for Hoop Shoot
December 12, 2019
The Wrangell Elks Lodge hosted its annual Hoop Shoot free throw contest last Saturday, Dec. 7. The contest is held by Elks lodges across the country, open to children from 8 to 13-years-old. Jeff Jabusch, director of the contest for Wrangell, says that participants get 25 shots at making a basket, plus a maximum of five practice throws. According to a final report written by Jabusch, this year's contest saw a record number of participants.
"The annual Hoop Shoot was a great success!" He wrote. "We had 51 participants which is the largest number we have had in at least 6 or 7 years."
