3rd Annual Clay Shoot for Scouting held Thursday

EAU CLAIRE, Wis. (WEAU) - Many people made their way to the Eau Claire Rod and Gun Club to raise money for local boy scouts.

The 3rd Annual Clay Shoot for Scouting was held Thursday afternoon. Each member of the teams got to show off their skills for two rounds of competition, with awards going to the best shots. Food and drinks were available with chances to win prizes as well.

The money raised will go towards local Boy Scout troops.

Clay Shoot Chair Luke Benedict says it’s an event for anyone. "If you're a new shooter, we actually have instructors out here for you to help take you through that. Show you how to handle the gun, how to use a gun, how to do a trap course, if it would be your first time. It's just a lot of fun out here,” Benedict told us Thursday.

The Chippewa Valley Council, Boy Scouts of America serves more than 4,500 kids in ten area counties.
