After starting and abandoning plans to build their own troop equipment trailer, Jack Miller Troop 31 stands before the trailer donated by Jack Miller and Dennis Shaw. and Dennis Shaw came to their rescue. Miller and Shaw saw the need and donated a fine snowmobile trailer. Some small additions to the inside resulted in a trailer that comfortably holds all the youth’s camping gear. Now when its camping time, the youth back up, hook up, and are off to find adventure. Thank you Jack Miller and Dennis Shaw for helping the youth of central Eden. Talented Hot Shot Represents Utah in Regional Hoop Shoot Competition Last fall, twelve-year-old Jacob Hillstrom of Huntsville barely won a freethrow shooting contest in the 12-13 age group sponsored by the Elks at Snowcrest Jr. High during “Say No to Drugs” week. Coming out on top, he then went on to a contest held at Bonneville High School to compete against youth from Logan, Box Elder, and Weber Counties. He sunk 25 out of 25 free throws, and advanced to the area competition held in Tooele, winning with 21 out of 25 free throws. Last month he went to Eureka, Utah and came away winning the state title by again making the 25 baskets out of the 25—only the second person ever to claim the perfect score. Hillstrom now moves on to the Regional Semi-finals, representing Utah in Las Vegas, Nevada on March 15. There will be six states represented. The winner from this round will advance to the Nationals held in Massachusetts in April. Jacob says he contributes his success to practice and repetitiveness. He also states that he is very pleased to represent the Valley when competing. Jacob has the ability to concentrate at the needed time, and with a soft touch, even the balls that don’t “swish” through the net, end up rolling in. The Elks Hoop Shoot The Elk’s National Free Throw Contest, the “Elks Hoop Shoot,” is the largest and most visible of the many youth activities sponsored by Elks Lodges throughout the country. Over 3,000,000 boys and girls Celeste C.

Appointments in Ogden Valley upon request. Jeffrey D. Shepherd Jacob Hillstrom between the ages of 8 and 13 will participate this year alone. The “Elks Hoop Shoot” has served to highlight the Elks national commitment to youth. The program originally began as a local Elk’s activity in Corvallis, Oregon in 1946. Out of that local program grew the national program, now in its 29th year. Each of the over 2,200 lodges were encouraged to establish its own local contest, involving boys from ages 8 to 13. Local area contestants advance through district, state, regional, and national competitions. In the first year—1971, boys from 19 states participated. Two years later in 1973, over 750,000 boys from 42 states took part in the contest. In the following year, girls were added to the competition, and the program has continued to expand ever since. All fifty states and the District of Columbia are now represented in the annual event. From the millions of youth who participate, six champions are named—one boy and one girl—in each of three categories: ages 8 – 9, 10 – 11, and 12 – 13. The winners each receive a trophy and their names inscribed at the Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame in Springfield, Massachusetts. The competition to become a champion is tough. At each level contestants take a total of 25 free throws. National finalists average around 90 percent. Families participate with contestants throughout the competition. The parents of finalists on the state, regional, and national levels attend the competitions as guests of the Elks. The “Elks Hoop Shoot” has been affective not only in developing champions, but character as well. Educators and parents have endorsed the program. One parent wrote, “It teaches a person how to win in good grace, and how to accept the moment of defeat without bitterness . . .” Retired? Retiring soon?
