Clays for Kids

Reminder to register!

by Diane Eaton – October 8, 2018


Five individuals and 20 four-person teams had registered online by Monday, Oct. 8 to participate in Mill Cove’s first Clays for Kids. Online registration ends on Wednesday, Oct 10.

This Saturday, Oct. 13 at 7:30 a.m., shooters can register for the day and check-in for the 8:30 a.m. morning shoot at Thunder Ridge Sporting Clays at 619 Leon Brown Road in Middlebury Center, PA 16935. Check-in for the afternoon shoot will be at 11:30 a.m. At noon will be the pork barbecue lunch, gun raffles, the presentation of awards for the morning shoot and information about Mill Cove and Asa’s Place. At 1 p.m. the afternoon shoot will begin with awards presented at 4 p.m.

Those who preregistered by Sept. 25 will participate in the morning and afternoon marksman competitions, receive four boxes of 12- or 20-gauge ammunition per shooter, 100 target rounds per shooter, golf cart use, a pork barbecue lunch and an event T-shirt in the size ordered. Those who registered by Oct. 10 or in person this Saturday, Oct. 13 will participate in the shoots and receive the same things as those who registered by Sept. 25 with the exception of an event T-shirt.

Registrants are responsible for bringing their own gun and eye and ear protection. Awards will be presented to the top male, female and team shooters. There will also be gun raffles.

The entry fee for individuals, both men, and women, participating in Clays for Kids is $130 per person and for a team of four is $500. Lunch only is $20 per person for those attending but not taking part in Clays for Kids.

Proceeds will benefit the outdoor Mill Cove Environmental Education Center where children learn about nature up close and personal and Asa’s Place, a nonprofit care facility being developed in the Wellsboro area for Tioga County infants born dependent on opioids to get the special care they need for the healthiest start in life. Asa’s Place will also be the home of a new advocacy program for these infants. The Asa’s Place programs will be operational in 2019.
