The First United Methodist Men will host a “Pull” Together Sporting Clay Tournament to benefit the Empower Nepali Girls Foundation Saturday, June 18 at the Natchitoches Shooting Range. The Methodist Men decided to hold it around Father’s Day to foster the connection of fathers and sons through the generations. The event is open to all levels and abilities of shooters.
Same day registration will be available beginning at 8 a.m. Pre-registration forms are available at the First United Methodist Church office and the range.
Target shooting will begin at 9 a.m. The event will include team and individual competitions. Awards will be given for Team HOA, Individual Youth and Adult HOA, Second, Third and others to be announced. The trail is a walking course. Golf carts and side-by-sides are allowed (No 4-wheelers).
Lunch, cooked by members of the Methodist Men, will be provided for participants. Plates are $10 for non-shooters. There will be a silent auction and homemade cakes will be sold by the Methodist Women Group.
Shooters under 17 must be accompanied by a parent or legal guardian. Shooters must provide their own ammunition (33/4 inch – 7.5 ounce, 8 ounce and 9 ounce size only: No heavy lead or steel shot). All shooters must wear eye and ear protection.
Last year the event raised $11,000 for scholarships for the girls sponsored through the Foundation. This year’s proceeds will go toward the Foundation’s Safe Learning Space Program. This program will provide learning materials for schools in the Everest region of Nepal.
