Denver Elks Hoop Shoot, January 2012

Thanks so much for all the hard work and attendance at the Elks National Hoop Shoot Local Contest at North High School in Denver. Everything went very well, and it would not had it not been for the faithful hoop shoot volunteers who show up every year for the contest. Because of them, this year's shoot was once again successful.

We arrived at the building at 7:30 am on Saturday, January 7, 2012, and set up registration immediately. The kids with their parents help got registered and started practicing until about 8:45 am. The event went very well. Using a laptop and printer at registration saved a lot of time during the entire event.

We had 25 kids from eight schools participate. There were no tie scores. Proof of date of birth went smoothly, however a few kids will need to show proof before moving on to the District Hoop Shoot. We started promptly at 9:00 am and finished at 11:20 am this year. Thank you again to everyone who helped, and a special thank you goes out to several Elks from Golden Lodge No. 2740 who showed up to help with the event.
