2020 Clay Shoot Sets a New Record
Our 4th Annual Ministry Village Clay Shoot was blessed with wonderful weather and record-setting fundraising! After being rescheduled because of Hurricane Sally, target shooters from all over the Panhandle competed for bragging rights, cash prizes and the winner’s travelling trophy, all to benefit the Ministry Village Charis House – our residential faith-based ministry for women struggling with addiction.
Stephen Newsome, Ministry Village Board Member and Event Chair, as well as Ministry Village Executive Director Jeremy Portmann, would like to thank all of our participants, sponsors and donors. Because of your support, this year’s event raised enough to fund all expenses for an entire year in the program for 3 women!
This year’s first place team was Ashton & Company, followed by second place team, Bob Price Jr. Builders –a repeat of last year’s top 2 teams! Ashton & Company’s team captain – Randy Hendricks – was also the event’s high score winner, shooting a perfect 100 with no mulligans. The Top Junior Shooter was Russ Durst. The winner of the Rifle Raffle was Greg Wood.
In addition to the tournament prizes, this year’s Clay Shoot offered a number of raffle and auction prizes totaling nearly $7,000 including
- A 3-day Deer Hunt including food and lodging at the Blackbelt Hunting Lodge in Sardis, Alabama
- 25 Quart Bayou Classic Tan Cooler
- Char-Griller Duo Gas & Charcoal Grill
- Bayou Classic 2.5 Gallon Bayou Fryer, and
- Winner’s Choice Raffle of a $2,000 Rifle.
Thank you to our sponsors – Ricky Smith and Smith Tractor Company, Gene’s Floor Covering, and Lowes on Airport Boulevard – as well as Bobby and Mamie Lindsey who donated a delicious, catered barbecue lunch.
The Santa Rosa Shooting Center has been the host site every year for the Ministry Village Clay Shoot. The Santa Rosa Shooting Center offers an all-inclusive shooting complex experience including areas for Sporting Clays, Skeet, Trap, Wobble Trap, 5-Stand and a Rifle and Pistol range. Their property off Quintette Road in Milton, Florida, provides a fantastic course for the sporting clays tournament as well as a covered pavilion for our morning kick-off and safety meeting and our post-tournament lunch, awards and auction.
Mark your calendars for next year’s event on October 2, 2021 as we Shoot for Grace, and help women struggling with addiction.
