Four winners have been announced in the Mid-Plains Community College Shooting Club raffle.

Ryan Propst, of North Platte, won three flats of shotgun shells, and Trevor Peterson, of Imperial, won two flats. Dick Potts, of Cambridge, and Greg Weigel, of North Platte, each won 50-pound bundles of ground beef.

More than $2,400 was raised from the raffle, the proceeds of which will be used to help offset the cost of entry fees and travel expenses for upcoming competitions.

The Shooting Club, an area-wide club that is open to both traditional and non-traditional students, is new to MPCC. Members began training over the fall semester and will start competing this spring.

They will have a practice competition Feb. 26 against the Nebraska College of Technical Agriculture. The first actual competition for the MPCC Shooting Club will be during the Doane Invite in Lincoln March 5.
