Hellooooo January!

That's right, it's January already! 2015 has ended and 2016 has arrived. Try to make the year start off with a bang, and maybe resolve some of your bad habits that you've developed! New year - new you, am I right?

'Twas the Season

How was everyone's break? Jolly, hopefully! It's back to the grind now, but hopefully you had a good Christmas break and spent some quality time with your family, friends, and yourself! But of course, since this is the Marksmen Minute, we have to host a little competition! Send in some pictures that you took over Christmas break, and the most jolly one will receive a late present!

Riddle me This.

First person to answer this gets a shout-out on the next Marksmen Minute!

Heaven has its pearly gates, but mine is made of gold. What am I?

Congratulations to Jessie Wheatley for getting the last riddle correct! In case you just couldn't put your finger on it, the answer to last week's riddle was 'your tongue'.
