The MINE (Michigan Nationals Event) features advanced competition not available in most local, regional or state 4-H competitions. This event will be piloted in archery and rifle, open to a limited number of youth and will be FREE (with registration in the State Shoot). Participants are encouraged to also compete in Saturday's events. Rules mimic National 4-H Shooting Sports Championships, where possible.

The intentions of this MINE are to:
  • Provide exposure to the events shot at the National 4-H Shooting Sports Championships
  • Provide Junior and Senior age participants a more challenging class in which to compete
  • Permit additional equipment allowances that are otherwise restricted in the other state tournament classes
  • Provide a class for Junior or Senior age participants that retains a portion of the same discipline/class they would otherwise be ineligible to shoot the following year due to winning a class at the State tournament the prior year.
ARCHERY: Participants in Michigan’s Modified National Archery Event class will shoot three (3) different types of rounds to introduce competitors to other Archery events governed by different national and international archery organizations. Each round uses different sizes and types of targets shot at varying distances. Limited to 20 participants for this pilot event. 

RIFLE: The Michigan 4-H National Rifle competition consists of three events. For time and space concerns these events have been modified to be slightly different than those at the National Invitational. These events include NRA Silhouette, CMP Rimfire Sporter, and NRA Three Position matches. A summary of the rules for each event are listed below. Limited to 10 participants for this pilot event.

If more registrations are received than we can accomodate, priority will be given to participants who:

  • are "Teen Leaders" in Shooting Sports; and or
  • applied to the 2020 National 4-H Shoot Team; and/or
  • applied for State Awards in Shooting Sports; and/or
  • are Teen Leaders certified as Shooting Sports Instructors; and/or
  • participated in the 2019 4-H National Shoot; and/or
  • are too old to compete at 4-H National Shoot; and/or
  • members who won State Shoot classes in a previous year and cannot participate in the State Shoot discipline; and/or
  • none of the above and are ready for an advanced tournament!
