The Allegheny Highlands Council, Boy Scouts of America will be hosting their seventeenth Annual Sporting Clays Tournament at the Bradford Gun Club in Pennsylvania. Tournament chairman Mike Schuler from Bradford said “ A really good time was had by one hundred competitors that came from three states last year, and more of the same is in store for this year. This is a terrific way to come out and support the scouts, enjoy the event and the sport, partake in a great buffet luncheon, and win great prizes, as well as get in on some really nice drawings.
The date of the event is Saturday, February 25, with check-in at 9:00 AM a shotgun start at 10AM. The day will conclude with prizes awarded in seventeen positions, for custom-engraved Zippo lighters. “There will be other drawings and super prizes for competing which make for a really fun day.
The cost of the event is $50, which includes 50 sporting clays, awards, prizes, and a great buffet lunch. Shooters of all ages and skill levels are invited to join in the day, and walk-ins are welcome. Female shooters are also welcome, and is one of the awards categories. Scoring is done by skill level, so everyone has a good chance of winning a top award.
