Covid-19 Safety.  This event will follow all Covid-19 guidelines currently in effect.  Some of those guideline include

  • Instead of volunteers at the station pulling the clays. we ask that each team pull their own.  This will limit the number of people at the Caribou Gun Club interacting with one another.
  • For both lunch and dinner you will set with your team and teams tables will be at least 6 feet from each other.  All guest are ask to wear facemask while indoors and not seated at a table.  Food will be served vs. buffet style.
  • We will not be running the “warm up”, “long-shot”, or “flurry” stations as social distancing will be difficult and will ad manpower needed for the tournament that will interact with each other.
  • We will still be having our raffle sponsored by the Blue Earth County Chapter of Minnesota Pheasants in.  Tickets are $20 and you will have a chance to win either a Benelli Montefeltro Shotgun, a pair of Vortex Binoculars, a St. Croix Rod with Shimano Reel combo, or a Yeti duffle bag.

4 Under 40

BSA Fleur de Lis4 Under 40 award honors members of the Martin County Community for their commitment and contributions both professionally and personally.  Members of Martin County are invited to submit nominations for the “4 Under 40” award and then nominees are sent an invitation to formally apply for the honor.  After the application deadline closes, a selection committee of community leaders review every submission.

How the Program Works:

Community members and leaders nominate individuals who will be over the age of 18 but under the age of 40.

Applications are then distributed to the Selection Committee members for evaluation. Following a meeting, announcements of the new class of honorees are made. 

What does the program benefit?

Each year thousands of youth in our area are benefiting from the funds raised through various events and now including 4 Under 40. It provides important revenue to maintain the programs that are developing tomorrow’s leaders through activities that bring fun, excitement, and time with friends while really learning self-reliance, team work, self-esteem and determination. Raised funds give over 2,000 youth in a fifteen county area the opportunity to participate in programs like Cub Scouts, Boy Scouts, National Youth Leadership Training, Venturing, Exploring, and ScoutReach. Not only does this award raise funds for important program, but it also recognizes truly remarkable people serving our community.

Why should I nominate?

We know that communities are made stronger when they support and value their talented young professionals. The 4 Under 40 awards allows the area to invest in this talent by recognizing the outstanding work of young professionals in our community. By nominating someone to receive a 4 under 40 award, you are providing valuable acknowledgement of their work, as well as encouragement to continue making a difference in our community.

Who should I nominate?

Think of influential young professionals you know that are working hard to make a difference in Martin County. They may be your friends, co-workers, neighbors, or fellow organization members. As you consider who to nominate, think of individuals who not only excel professionally, but have chosen to dedicate their time outside of work to efforts that improve their community. These individuals should serve as role models for future leaders and have demonstrated the ability to motivate and lead others.

What information do I need?

In addition to the basic contact information about the nominee, the nomination form asks you to state why you feel that particular individual deserves to be recognized as one of this year’s 4 Under 40. It is helpful to the selection committee if you can include as much detail as possible about what distinguishes your nominee from the others as your nomination statements can offer great insight into the nominee.
