SAFE HARBOUR TO HOST EIGHT ANNUAL SKEET SHOOT EVENT

Safe Harbour’s Eighth Annual Skeet Shoot fundraising event is seeking target shooting enthusiasts, hunters and those interested in having fun outdoors and supporting a good cause to participate in an afternoon of sport shooting marksmanship on Friday, June 7, 2019, at the Carlisle Fish & Game Association beginning at 11:45 a.m.

F&M Trust returns for the eighth consecutive year as the major sponsor of this exciting event, which features a team skeet shooting competition, as well as trap shooting and sport target shooting activities. Since the event began in 2012, Safe Harbour has raised more than $16,000 with F&M Trust’s significant support.

The Skeet Shoot event combines fun and fellowship in a unique setting to raise funds in support of Safe Harbour’s mission to provide housing and supportive services for the homeless and potentially homeless individuals and families. Shooters of all skill levels are welcome to test their shooting abilities while helping those in need.

The Eighth Annual Skeet Shoot features a five-person team skeet shoot competition. To join in the fun, shooters need a shotgun capable of shooting two rounds, as well as your own #8 or #9 ammunition. The shotgun can be double barreled, semi-automatic or even a pump. Because skeet competitors will shoot in squads of five, one shotgun may be shared between several shooters.  No prior experience is required to participate as the Carlisle Fish & Game Association provides experienced skeet shooters to oversee the outing, and they can assist new shooters.  Shooters are required to have appropriate eye and ear protection for the event.  Ear protection and ammunition will be available for purchase at the event.

Participants may register as a team or as individuals who will be matched with other shooters to form a five-person team. Basic registration includes one round of skeet for $25, new this year is an expanded registration option which includes one round each of skeet, trap and wobble for $40. Both levels of registration include lunch catered by Horner’s Corner BBQ. Additional target shooting activities of trap and wobble trap will also be available throughout the afternoon for an added donation. Team as well as individual prizes will be awarded.
