Hoop Shoot — Saturday, Nov. 5
The Susanville Elks Lodge No. 1487 hosts the annual Hoop Shoot at 9 a.m. Saturday, Nov. 5 at the Johnstonville Elementary School Gym. The contest is open to students between the ages of 8 and 13 as of April 1, 2023. Contestants will shoot a series of free throws. Local winners go on to participate in the state and national programs. Elks have been developing and reinforcing grit for nearly 50 years — long before researchers and experts concluded that grit is so important to our youth.
