Competition Opportunity

The ACUI’s East Coast International Conference Championships (March 7–8, 2015) will be held at Ft. Benning USAMU Range in Ft. Benning, GA. Marcia and I are going to see Mark and Steph shoot for Emmanuel but we would love to see a few Clay Busters make the trip with us. Mark, Danny, Ryan and Patrick shot in this last year and enjoyed the experience. This is an International shoot (100 Olympic Trap and/or 100 International Skeet) and is open to high school juniors and seniors. The team would pay all registration fees however athletes would be responsible for providing their own ammo and travel expenses.
