Filed under: Dennis Harold |

Watching the guys at the Negaunee Gun Club Shoot sporting clays is exciting but being on a team shooting with celebrities to raise money would be even better!

The Tug McGraw Foundation will hold its 2nd Annual “Celebrity Sporting Clay Pro-Am” on Tuesday, June 4, 2013 at the Nashville Gun Club in Nashville, Tennessee. Proceeds from the event will benefit the Tug McGraw Foundation and its efforts to improve the lives of military service members who have been affected by Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) and Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI). Clay shoot TM

“Celebrity Sporting Clay Pro-Am” will feature an exciting lineup of celebrities from both the music and professional sporting clay communities, all vying for a chance to be crowned champions. CMA Award-winning musician Kix Brooks will be joining the foundation for the event, along with an all-star lineup of country celebrities to be announced in the coming weeks. Heading up the professional contingent for the event is Bill McGuire, the 2011 National Sporting Clay Champion along with Brad Kidd, Jr., Chris Reed from Top Shot, Andy Ross of Maximum Archery and Tom Mac from CZ Guns.                                                 

The event will be a sporting clay competition between 15 teams consisting of four amateurs, one professional, and a music celebrity. Unlike trap or skeet, which are games of repeatable target presentations, sporting clay competitions simulates the unpredictability of live-quarry, offering a greater variety of trajectories, angles, speeds, elevations, distances, and target sizes.

The teams will make their way through the award-winning 20-station sporting clay course at the Nashville Gun Club. Following the competition there will be a lunch featuring fine Cajun cuisine and silent auction with items including wine, dining, travel and sports & music memorabilia.
