The Blinn College Alumni and Friends and Alumni Lettermen associations are proud to announce that four local companies have stepped forward to support local college students through their sponsorship of the 2019 Blinn College District Clay Shootout.
Stylecraft Builders, Inc. is underwriting this year’s Clay Shootout with a $15,000 sponsorship.
“Stylecraft Builders is thrilled to partner with Blinn on such a great event,” said Doug French, Chief Executive Officer for Stylecraft Builders. “Blinn is an asset to our community, and as an alumnus myself, I recognize the quality education they provide local students.”
Blue Bell Creameries, Brenham National Bank, and MDX Safety, Inc. each are supporting the annual fundraiser with $5,000 sponsorships.
Hosted Friday, April 5, at the Boswell Porter 4-H Shotgun Range at 7676 County Road 247 in Caldwell, the Clay Shootout raises funds for Blinn College District academic scholarships and athletic equipment.
“We are thrilled with all the support we receive for the annual Clay Shoot,” said Dr. Deanna Alfred, President of the Blinn Alumni and Friends Association. “This has become our signature event and we look forward to hosting it each April.”
Entry for a four-person team is $500 and entry for a single shooter who wishes to be paired with a team is $125.
The shoot will include 100 sporting clays. Food will be provided throughout the day along with drinks, raffles, prizes, and awards. For non-shooters, there will be unlimited food and drink for $20.
Raffle tickets also will be sold prior to and during the event.
Shooters must provide their own shotgun and ammunition. Registration will be one hour before shoot time with a safety meeting 30 minutes prior to shoot time. Awards will be presented to the top male, female, and youth following the final flight. Shooters under the age of 17 must have completed their hunter’s safety certification.
