The 7th Annual Clay Shoot was a huge success. More than 135 shooters braved rain forecasts to enjoy the 7th Annual Foundation Sporting Clay Shoot April 17 at the newly reopened Camp Aldrich. The 100-target event raised more than $10,000 to support mini-grants for Barton faculty. In its six year history, the Foundation office has awarded 82 mini-grants totaling more than $54,000 to assist faculty with classroom enhancements to benefit the learning experience of Barton students.
Both shooters and volunteers were extremely pleased with the new venue for the shoot, many calling it one of the best courses of its kind they had seen. Shooters enjoyed overcast skies, an excellent course set by Linden Target Sports of McPherson, and a hearty lunch by Great Western Dining. Individuals and three-person teams competed for prizes, including guns for the top shooters and raffle prizes donated by our generous sponsors. Prizes were awarded in the Lewis Class competition as well.
Flurries, described as “load fast, shoot fast,” were an exciting addition to the event, allowing teams of two to compete with an extra 30 shots and a chance at more prizes.
Be sure to mark your calendars for next year. Our event will be Sunday, April 23, 2017.
