MN Event Special Youth Guests!

We just did our first event in MN on 8/22 at the Caribou Gun Club and we saw a great opportunity to promote the NSSF and National Shooting Month. While setting up last Monday, we met a class of local youth and their instructors taking a hunter certification class and we decided to give each of the kids a Shoot For A Cure hat and Buck knife. We then asked the instructors (who were also the coaches of the St. Paul High School Trap team) if they would like to bring 2 squads of youth to shoot as our guests the next day at the event. They brought 4 kids from the high school team (2 kids finished 5th in the US last year) and 4 new kids (future members of the trap team).  They had a BALL - the coaches team finished 2nd, the older kids finished 3rd and the young kids took home most of the raffle items!!!

It was an awesome day and we promoted the NSSF throughout the entire event. It was a real pleasure to be able to be in a position to comp the day for these kids. They will all be back next year.

June Sponsor Spotlight: Fiocchi Ammunition and Orion Coolers

s5_logo.png

We have two sponsors of the month for June! First is Fiocchi Ammunition. Here is how we feel about Fiocchi, who is one of our Founding Sponsors, taken directly from one of their past catalogs:

"In our opinion, Fiocchi Shooting Dynamics is the best economical target load out there and is the official ammo of Shoot For A Cure. It is consistent, hard hitting, and clean - we very rarely have a failure. We see over 1300 shooters each year and we clean 40-60 loaner guns after each event. When you shoot as many rounds thru those guns as we do, it's nice to know that they will function for the entire event and clean up fairly easily. We rely on Fiocchi Shooting Dynamics for a great shooting experience for all of our shooters." 

Many thanks to Carlo and Jackie, your continued support throughout the years means everything to us!!!

For more info, go to www.fiocchiusa.com.

We're proud to feature their high quality Orion 45 Cooler at all of our event raffles, and to keep your drinks cool on the course as well.

Big thanks to Damon from Orion for your support of Shoot for a Cure!

10th Annual PSW Shoot Recaps from Moore N' Moore

Screen Shot 2018-04-09 at 12.34.33 PM.png

Event Recap from Moore N' Moore

Great scores, great time, and all for a great cause!

Last year we decided to enhance the Shoot for a Cure event to handle two different types of shooters. The NSCA shooter and the Fundraiser shooter (and both for some people). Holding events all weekend over the 10th and the 11th was a ton of fun. Especially with Mark Gagliardi and his band of shooting event experts on hand to make both days something to remember. Mark even came up with the new Moore N’ Moore promo song for our reopening. Video is posted below…as you sing along, be sure to replace “more more more” with “Moore N’ Moore” and “ooh how do you like your love?” with “oooh how do you like our club?”. Clever! He even called me up days later and opened the conversation with that….scary stuff, I tell ya.

While the NSCA shoot only had 52 shooters, the Sunday event had over 112 and boy was it muddy on Sunday. Saturday was actually the best day to shoot since it started raining as the event ended and the raffle began. The weather proceeded to rain through the day and night and left Sunday a muddy mess (I know it’s too late, but the mud issue has been addressed). I believe it was referred to as the peanut butter parking lot by the S4AC crew. That didn’t stop the good times from happening though and the heavy-duty fundraising activities by the S4AC crew. Lunch? An incredible lunch was provided by Wolf Creek Restaurant in Valencia. They served an Alfredo chicken on Saturday and Tri-Tip on Sunday and the side dishes were rib-sticking good stuff like baked beans and garlic mashed potatoes.

Read the full recap here!

 

January Sponsor Spotlight: Spring Creek SD Outfitters

Screen Shot 2018-01-10 at 1.58.53 PM.png
 

Our sponsor of the month for January is Spring Creek SD Outfitters! One of our favorite raffle prizes to award at every event raffle is the trip to their Resort and Deep Water Marina, but instead of us telling you about our sponsor of the month, let’s hear it in the words of John Zanotti, one of our recent hunt winners! 

unnamed-4.png
unnamed-7.png

"The trip was great! I brought my 22 year old son Zachary and neither of us ever hunted before.

From the time I called to make my reservation up to the end of our trip, David and Angela from Spring Creek were so accommodating. They picked us up at the airport and we stopped for lunch before taking us to our own lake front cabin. We walked along the property and lake, then relaxed in our cabin before going to dinner at the Lodge. It was there we met our fellow hunters and had an amazing home style dinner in a small relaxed environment, and then we worked our way to the bar area where Angela served us some super cocktails as we all watched the college football games on TV and would take cigar breaks on the outside deck.

unnamed-13.png

The hunt started the following morning and they made us feel very comfortable by explaining what to do and what to expect. After the second day of hitting our limit, we felt like experienced professional hunters. We made some new friends that we now keep in touch with and will hunt again together.

unnamed-11.png

Dave offered to have the pheasant cleaned and shipped to our homes, which I had him do. When the pheasant was delivered it was cleaned and vacuum sealed in plastic and came frozen. I quickly defrosted some and made it for dinner that night and it was AMAZING!!!!

This was an experience my son and I will never forget."

Special thanks to David and Angela for your continued support!
