Austin Founder Lions Have Successful Sporting Clay Shoot-Out
Austin Founder Lions Club’s eighth annual Sporting Clay Shoot-Out was June 8, 2018, at Capital City Clays. A total of 21 teams competed in two fields. Prizes were awarded for First, Second and Dead Last in both the Blue and Red fields. Winning teams were sponsored by Austin Sonic Drive-In and DBR Engineering. Second place winners were Labor Finders and The University of Texas Cowboys. Dead Last went to TAB Technologies.
The NFL Alumni – Austin Chapter again supported the event with some 22 former players who hosted each shooting station, signed autographs and posed for pictures. Thanks, guys!
Continued support by both past and new Team, Event and Station sponsors and generous participants – plus several raffles – helped make this event financially successful. Thanks to all the sponsors listed below.
