Albemarle Sporting Clays Event
The second Albemarle Sporting Clays event is set for noon on Saturday, September 9 at Powell’s Sporting Clays in Shawboro. If you are not familiar with sporting clays here is a link to the page on the sporting clays association. Website http://www.claytargetsonline.com/location/powell-farm-sporting-clays/ and a short description follows from Wikipedia.
Sporting clays is a form of clay pigeon shooting, often described as “golf with a shotgun” because a typical course includes from 10 to 15 different shooting stations laid out over natural terrain. Unlike trap and skeet, which are games of repeatable target presentations, sporting clays simulates the unpredictability of live-quarry shooting, offering a great variety of trajectories, angles, speeds, elevations, distances, and target sizes.
Tidewater Council, Boy Scouts of America is a certified agency of Albemarle Area United Way. When a presentation is made at your place of employment, remember they are assisting in keeping Scouting viable in the Albemarle counties. If you are supporting your United Way campaign, you can choose to designate your contribution to Tidewater Council (this does not replace or count as Friends of Scouting) by selecting “Agency 4004”. General funds are allocated, to the extent possible, to supporting certified agencies.
To further assist United Ways in their efforts to support you, volunteers are always needed to present during campaigns, set up displays about Scouting at agency fairs and assist with the United Way events held in Elizabeth City area. If you are willing to assist in these areas, please contact Dana Mott.
