She is heading up two junior 3 gun camps, under the title of 2A Heritage, that will take place in June and July.
She also shoots with her husband and 3 boys, shortened up to The Yackley Five; Mark, Becky, Tim, Sean, and Andrew. This family of shooters is no stranger to 3-Gun competitions, having competed all over the country.

Their eldest, Tim, is nearly 17 years old and has been shooting competitively for the last three years. He has competed in USPSA, 3-gun, Palma Rifle, practical shotgun, and multi-gun events. He is the current junior National Champion for The Bianchi Cup and is on the USA Junior Team for the IPSC Shotgun World Shoot in Italy.
