Elks Hoop Shoot Update
It qll began in November, when the Toledo Elks Lodge held their local Hoop Shoot competition at Toledo Elementary School and awarded six first place winners, in specific age brackets, for boys and girls. Those six would represent Toledo in the District Competition held on January 18th in Tillamook, hosted by the Tillamook Elks Lodge. Toledo participants took 1st place in four of the brackets and 2nd place in a fifth and received special recognition for the sixth participant. At one point, John Morris, the District Hoop Shoot Director, announced to the audience, “I would sure like to know what they are putting in the water these days in Toledo”.
The four 1st place winners, Conner Marchant, Alexis Vinson, Mason McAlpine and Madison Metcalf, will now move on to the State competition in Salem on Feb 8th 2014. Everyone is welcome to attend and support our local winners. Congratulations and good luck to these four kids!
