Join event chairman and Eagle Scout Brent Kerr, President of Kerr Contractors, for the 18th Annual Sporting Clays Shootout benefiting local outdoor programs of the Boy Scouts of America. In response to the current pandemic, the shootout has been postponed until September 17-18. The event schedule will remain the same as always.
Often called golf with guns, sporting clays is a fast-growing pastime among outdoor sports shooters. The course features 25 shooting stations set up to throw 100 “birds” (clays) which simulate flying or running game targets. Teams of five adults compete in the shootout, which is open to all skill levels.
