Week 3: Snipers + Mitts

We are now in Week 4 of the 5000 Shot Challenge and are well on our way to harder, more accurate shots.  Thirty-five (35) shooters have turned in tracking sheets -- are you being outworked?  Remember Reason #5: because somewhere out there someone is working harder than you. Don't be outworked! Grab your stick and start shooting!
