Hayshakers club participates in lesson on firearms By Eva Sobak FAIRDALE, N.D. -- The Sobak ranch was host to the 3rd annual Hayshakers "tim with firearms" extravaganza. It was held in conjunc- tion with the monthly meeting, on Sunday June 15 at 2:30 pm. After the 4-H business was attended to, the merriment began. Mr. Peder Flaten instructed members in the use of .22 pistols, using balloons as targets. The host, Mr. Justin Sobak, assisted with the .50 cal- iber Kodiak double rifle, which was fired at paper targets. In addition, he schooled the Hayshakers in the sport of shotgunning. Mrs. Karl Helgoe, Walsh County extension agent, was also in atten- dance in order to introduce the club to another shooting sport: archery. She and her son, Noah, delivered a trailer full of targets, a net, bows, and an assortment of arrows. Their appearance made the day extraordinarily special. All of the Hayshakers felt they had a very excellent adventure! Following the festivities, the hostess, Mrs. Bergit Sobak, provided a traditional Father's Day picnic. Potato salad, chips, and watermelon were offered, in addition to elk b gers, ch c0aI gri!led.to perfection by Mr. Mark Hodek. Desserts included banana cream pie, rhubarb cheesecake, and chocolate peanut butter pizza. Raspberry lemonade was the bever- age. Members, parents, and guests enjoyed every bite.
