The sun was shining, the air was balmy, and a gentle breeze rustled the leaves. It was the perfect day for our annual Clay Shoot Fundraiser, held at the picturesque J&H Game Farm. This year, we set a new record with 72 enthusiastic shooters and an impressive turnout of 80 attendees. The event was not only a tremendous success but also an enjoyable day spent outdoors in the heart of nature.
The allure of camaraderie, competition, and the great outdoors drew people from all walks of life to come together in support of our cause. The idyllic setting of J&H Game Farm provided the perfect backdrop for a day filled with friendly competition and heartwarming connections. And the best part? The breezy conditions that kept those pesky mosquitoes at bay, allowing everyone to focus on the thrill of the shoot.
