One event at each club . If you enjoy clay target shooting you won’t want to miss this opportunity to see each club and the targets they are known for throwing . If you are a hunter, just getting started in clay target shooting, or an avid shooter there is something for everyone !  These events are a great way to practice wing shooting and get to know fantastic people who are passionate about clay target sports .
