The course will consist of multiple sporting clay shooting stations set throughout the Camp Avondale area. This will be a team event however individual youth shooters are welcome.  Teams will consist of four participants. A NRA certified shotgun instructor will be traveling with the teams to every station.

Youth participants fees are $50.00 per person if registered by March 23, 2018. Fees for youth participants received between March 24, 2018 and April 7, 2018 will be assessed a $10.00 late fee.

Spectators, who are not shooters, are invited to come and show support for their favorite team/teams. A spectator cost is $20.00 which includes meals for the day.

During this year’s event, accompanying adult scouters and parents have the opportunity to not only walk the course with your team but also shoot the course as well. Adults who wish to shoot the course are subject to the same event rules and regulations as scouts.

Overview of the day’s events:

All participants are to park in the Summer Camp parking lot and make their way via the RED Gate Archway to the Dining Hall for registration/check-in and an opportunity to enjoy a continental style breakfast. Following breakfast a mandatory safety briefing will be held for all participants. At the completion of the mandatory safety briefing the assigned teams accompanied by their NRA certified shotgun instructors will be directed to their designated starting point on the course. We will be utilizing a shotgun start for the event.

The “Road Kill Cafe” will be providing lunch in the Dining Hall. At the completion of lunch all teams that have not completed their round will return to the course to do so. Youth participants, adult walk participants and spectators that have completed their round are encouraged to return to the course to cheer on the teams as they complete their round.

Once all teams have completed their rounds we will all gather at the Dining Hall for presentation of awards, certificates and door prizes. At the completion of the awards ceremony, youth shooters that wish to get in a little more time behind a shotgun are welcome to hang out with our NRA RSOs and Instructors at the Chapel station. We’ll shoot till the sun goes down or the supplies run out whichever comes first.

Looking for volunteers:

We are also looking for trappers and dedicated scorers. No prior experience necessary, we have a GREAT on-the-job training program!

We are very excited to be able to offer an annual sporting clays event and give our youth a fun, safe, and memorable shooting experience here at the Avondale Scout Reservation. Come check out the fun, support your youth, volunteer your expertise, or all of the above! .  For flyer to down load   CLICK HERE.     Please share the word with your friends!
