Broken Bow Elks Lodge 1688 hosted local youth between the ages of 8 and 13 recently for the Lodge’s Hoop Shoot Contest. The winners advance to the District Shoot in Kearney Nebraska in January, and the winners in Kearney travel to York Nebraska to the State Hoop Shoot. Thirteen Elks members helped the Shoot run smoothly, along with 4 extra volunteers.
