March 17th saw our members out on the Biltmore Sporting Clays Club for our 2022 Sporting Clays Tournament. With 13 teams in the morning, and 13 teams in the afternoon we had the most participation yet. A huge thank you to our Presenting Sponsor Builder’s FirstSource for continuing to make this tournament doable. Lunch was sponsored by Hi-Tech Integrated Systems, and I think I speak for everyone in saying that Wally really outdid himself with ribs, pulled pork, and chicken. Our friends from Axeville were also there with the mobile axe throwing unit (sponsored by Laurel Windows).
We started the morning off with coffee, breakfast, and registration. While the teams were registering, they had the chance to win 2 new guns from our raffle. One was for NC Build PAC and the other was to help benefit the Education Foundation. The teams went off to shoot in the first group after the super important safety meeting.
Sharpshooter sponsor 84 Lumber were out on the course and had a table full of swag. Snack sponsor Morrison Millwork was also set up between the two stations with lots of goodies, including very popular muffins. Again this year Griffin Waste supplied extra bathrooms for our participants on the course. Ammo was sponsored by CSDB and Griffin Waste, and each shooter got boxes in their bags.
Shooters had a beautiful day on the course, and the usual 12 stations to shoot from. These stations were labeled by our Buckshot sponsors: Builder’s FirstSource, Hi-Tech Integrated Systems, ProSource, cLearn, Gennett Lumber, Union Home Mortgage, MATH Insurance Services, GBS Building Supply, Sherwin-Williams, and Horizon Tile & Stone.
After a delicious lunch, and some axe throwing group two took their “shot” at the course. Scores were posted to the Team and Individual boards so everyone could see their standings. The scorecards were graciously sponsored by Cason Building Supply and Kitchens of the South.
This year we also had the option for a cold beer for participants AFTER they finished shooting the course. HomeTrust Bank were the sponsors for that, and our shooters either drowned their sorrows, or celebrated their day with some great local brews.
The winner of our Individual 2022 Round for the second year was Jake Reuter who shot for Team Wright Family Custom Homes with a score of 92! Our Team 2022 Winner was Wright Family Custom Homes with a score of 335. This year we introduced the new Trophy, that will live at Biltmore Sporting Clays. The winning team will be labeled for each year, and we are excited to put up the first team name.
We drew for the guns the next day and past President Thomas McClain and board member Duane Scholz were our winners!
If you weren’t able to get a team this year, make sure you sign up for 2023 Foundation Club to guarantee your spot for 2023.
