Youth Hoops Shoot Contest Set Dec. 2 in Seaside

The annual Youth Hoop Shoot basketball free throw contest, sponsored by Monterey Elks Lodge 1285, will be held Saturday, Dec. 2 at the Boys and Girls Club, 1332 La Salle Ave, Seaside, with Robert Kandell as Elks chair. Registration starts at 8:15 a.m. and the contest begins at 9 a.m.

More than 30 boys and girls, ages 8-13, are expected to participate. Local schools/agencies send their best players in hopes of advancing to the District Level. Each contestant will receive a red, white and blue basketball from the Monterey Lodge #1285. Elk members will help with registration, ball chasing and scoring.

Boy Scout Troop 2 will be helping and Community Service hour credit is available for other students to help as well. Volunteers are asked to contact Kandell at robert@shutterbugmonterey.com or 831-521-2362.

First place winners on Dec. 2 will go to District competition, and those winners will go to the West Regional semi-finals in February.
