Sporting Clays Tournament
On Friday, May 11th, 134 shooters attended Stepping Stones’ Sporting Clays Tournament at Sycamore Pheasant Club in Loveland.
With sunny skies, the second annual event was a beautiful day in the great outdoors. Guests enjoyed lunch by Jersey Mike’s and a safety training before hitting the course for a 27-station clay shoot. The tournament also featured several challenges, including a creative poker game where players collected cards at various stations in a competition for the best hand. The poker challenge was won by Burke Byer.
Following the tournament, attendees were joined by their spouses and family for a relaxing celebration at the lodge. Flipdaddy’s kept the grill going, serving a popular burger bar that included a feast of toppings as well as Saratoga chips, pasta salad and more. Over burgers, guests also enjoyed craft beer and a bourbon tasting led by co-chairs Peter Borchers and Brian Folke.
In first place, the Anchor Properties team took the top prize with a score of 319 points. The Hansen Scaffolding team came in second, scoring 291.
Stepping Stones’ Sporting Clays Tournament netted more than $56,000 to benefit year-round programs for children and adults with disabilities. Only in its second year, the event saw tremendous growth with a 71 percent net increase over the inaugural 2017 clay shoot.
Stepping Stones sincerely thanks our dedicated event planning committee, generous sponsors, guests and raffle donors for making this event such a great success.
