SPORTING CLAYS TOURNAMENT
May 3   |   American Shooting Centers
Whether you are an expert or out for one of your first sporting clays tournaments, this event is a great opportunity to enjoy the outdoors while benefiting a noble cause. This year we will have mulligans, shootings games, and a raffle, so don’t forget to bring a few extra dollars!
 
You must complete the attached waiver to participate in the tournament.
 
  • Please arrive at least 30 minutes early to check in and hear the safety briefing.  There is only one flight time at 1 PM.  To expedite registration please have each person on your team fill out the Waiver & Release ahead of time.

Games & Mulligans:
We will be offering a 2-man Flurry game and Pair-in-the-Air before and after the tournament.  Games cost only $20 per person and will be the only method of “practicing” before your round.
Two mulligan tickets may be purchased per shooter.  Each ticket is $25 and will provide a shooter with 5 extra targets to shoot at any station (it’s an add-to not a do over). Mulligans will be included in the final team and individual scores.
