On October 2nd, Pensacola State College is set to host its largest clay shoot fundraiser since it held its first event in 2009. Just shy of 2 months away, 150 shooters representing 38 teams have already signed on to compete. Held at the Santa Rosa Shooting Center in Pace, the tournament begins at 7:30am.
Sporting Clay events are 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! Sporting Clay tournaments were initially inspired by the game of golf.
We are grateful for the generous sponsors, participants and volunteers who make this event a success. This year, more than ever, supporting Pensacola State College makes a world of difference. There is still time to join in on the fun, and one hundred percent of the money raised at the Day of Clays goes to support our Fund for Excellence. This helps the Foundation fund the more than 100 programs on 3 Campuses and 3 Centers where we help our students reach their individual educational or career goals.
