Sporting Clay Shoot
A-- / A++

TY_Frontof2017

Our 12th Annual Sporting Clay Shoot was our best yet, and here's why.... 

The 2017 Sporting Clay Shoot, sponsored by CalTech, was held on June 10,2017 at the San Angelo Claybird Association.  We had a blast and challenged each and every shooter we hosted while providing a laid-back shoot everyone could enjoy! 

Congratulations to our top shooters this year!  Steve Shackleford shot an impressive 94 (of 100) on Red, Dan Thompson shot a 92 on Green, Tonya Brown was our top female shooter with a score of 68, and Andrew Osbourne shot a 75 as our under 16 top youth shooter.

The weather was hot, but breezy, creating an ideal environment for shooters and spectators alike. This year’s shooter package included one round of 100 targets on either the red or green course, breakfast (served at 7am), lunch (served at 11:30am), and a 1 in 10 chance to win $500 cash or a $750 gift certificate to Field & Streams Sporting Goods (shooters were required to be present at drawing during Live Auction to win). We gave away 18 of these opportunities this year!! It truly does PAY to stick around. Registration was $165, but if registration was paid in full by May 24th, they paid only $150!  

Remember to purchase some extra lunch tickets so you can bring the whole family next year! There will be plenty to do, as always, and a fabulous BBQ lunch not to be missed! Additional meal tickets are only $10, and that funds 3 meals for a senior in need. In 2017, music was played by KGKL & KKCN’s Boomer Kingston throughout the day. After lunch, our LIVE auction provided plenty of entertainment. Our auction always features one-of-a-kind items like gun accessories from Briley Manufacturing, Yeti Coolers, gorgeous knives, hunting gear, unique home decor, and just so much more. 

We also raffled off an amazing sporting 12 gauge- a Winchester Super X3- sponsored in part by the Outdoorsman. This year’s lucky winner was Clint Harrison, but next year it could be you! Be sure to get plenty of raffle tickets before the shoot. Tickets can be purchased through our office or by contacting a Meals For The Elderly board member in March 2018 or later.

In 2017, both our 8am and 11am rotations filled up early, so take advantage of our advanced ticket discount and lock in your spot on our 8am or 11am rotation to make sure you have a spot!  We raised almost $60,000 for the mission and work at Meals For The Elderly thanks to our generous supporters from across the state. We invite you all to join us again next year!

equipment and has something for anyone with a heart for the homebound elderly!
