DHS hosts annual Elk Hoop Shoot
Whittled down from a preliminary pool of more than 700 participants, 51 contestants competed in the annual Elks Hoop Shoot hosted by Dickinson Elks Lodge No. 1137 on Saturday, Dec. 1, at the DHS gymnasium.
The event featured kids ages 8-13 from around Southwest North Dakota as they competed in age and gender-based groups for a chance to compete at the state competition in Jamestown on January 19, 2019. From there, winners move to the regional competition which is held in Rapid City in March and the national event in Chicago in April. Local lodges, with help from Elks National, cover travel costs for the winning families.
In each age group, the first-, second- and third-place finishers received medals, with the winner taking home an Elks basketball as well.
