Join us Saturday, October 3rd!

Sporting clays is the closest thing to actual field shooting of all shotgun sports. Rather than having clay birds thrown from standardized distances and angles as with skeet or trap, sporting clay courses are designed to simulate the hunting of ducks, pheasants, other upland birds, and even rabbits.

Join us at the Santa Rosa Shooting Center as we host our 2020 Day of Clays Tournament presented by TRANE.

Lunch sponsored by Chet’s Seafood, Morette Company and The Lewis Bear Company

7:30 am Registration
8:45 am Mandatory Safety Orientation
9:00 am Start

Fish Fry, Raffle and Awards to Follow


As Covid-19 information changes rapidly please know that your health and safety will be our top priority as committee members and I plan the 2020 Day of Clays Tournament.

Because this is an outdoor event, we are grateful that it makes it easier for us to practice social distancing but we won’t stop there.   We are offering the following ways to help protect you, our valued participants:

  • Santa Rosa Shooting Center will sanitize all shooting stations prior to the event
  • Hand sanitizers will be available at each station
  • Masks will be provided, if needed
  • To help with social distancing, each team will launch clays and keep their own scores
  • Breakfast and Lunch will be served according to any local health and CDC guidelines that are in place at that time

Thank you for supporting Pensacola State College.  Although the times are challenging, let’s have some FUN and raise the much-needed scholarship and program support for our students!

Ron Jackson, Event Chair

Past Event

2019 Day of Clays Recap

The 2019 Day of Clays was our largest one yet thanks to our amazing sponsors and participants!  Over 160 registered for the September 28th event and along with the gun give-a-way fundraiser brought in over $90,000 in support of the Pensacola State College Fund for Excellence.

Registration began at 7:30 am with plenty of hot coffee and an assortment of breakfast goodies.  On-site this year were several of Sandy Sansing dealerships displaying 5 of their newest pickup trucks. A great addition to the event!

Participants made it out to their stations in plenty of time for the 9 am start and upon their return were treated to a fish fry lunch buffet sponsored by Chet’s, The Morette and The Lewis Bear Company.

Following dozens of door prizes and event awards guests were able to head home in plenty of time to watch their favorite games!

Thank you to all that made the day possible and especially to the Day of Clays Committee who work tirelessly leading up to the event:
