A huge thank you to all the sponsors, participants, volunteers and supporters who made this year’s Sporting Clay event a success.

Thanks to Channel 3 for the live interview on their Sunday morning show to promote the event in advance and to KTAR for their coverage the day of the event. Special thanks to those who provided onsite support with tents, water, ice, plaques and t-shirts. We are very appreciative of everyone who had a part in making this year’s clay event the best one so far.
