The Rotary Club of Dubois County recently announced their plans to host their annual Clay Shoot event to raise funds for their Community Grants Program. This year’s event will be Friday, April 21st, and will be held at OFS Cool Springs in Velpen, Indiana.
“The Rotary Club of Dubois County is fortunate to partner with OFS Brands for the use of this world-class facility,” said event team captain, Darren Patterson. “Building friendships, creating awareness of sporting clays, and safety are the primary goals of the event.”
The cost to participate is $125.00 per participant and teams of four are recommended. Guests will shoot from 12 stations at OFS Cool Springs, targeting over 100 sporting clay targets. Ammunition and lunch will be provided. Participants are asked to bring their own 12-gauge semi-automatic or under-over shotguns for the event. This year’s event will feature both morning and afternoon sessions.
The Rotary Club of Dubois County would like to thank Old National Bank for committing to be the Premier Sponsor of the 2023 event. Additional sponsorships ranging from $200.00 to $600.00 are also available.
“The Rotary Club of Dubois County’s Community Grants Program continues to attract more and more applicants each year,” said event co-chair, Derek Budd. “The need for funding is high, and we want to help as many Dubois County nonprofits as possible. I encourage community members to join us for a great day, and if you can’t participate, please consider sponsoring this impactful event.”
The Rotary Club of Dubois County granted over $9,000 in 2023 and plans to do the same in 2024. Recipients of funds in 2023 were SWICACC, Pine Ridge Elementary, and Crisis Connections. Applications for 2024 funding are open now, with a deadline of March 24th to submit. Funds from this year’s Clay Shoot will benefit the 2025 Rotary Club of Dubois County Community Grants cycle.
