Special to Suisun City Patch
End your summer with a bang at Solano Land Trust’s second annual Aim for Ag and Open Space Sporting Clay Shoot this Saturday, August 11.
Each participant gets a sporting clay shoot of 50 targets or more, ammo, eye and ear protection, and a shooter’s gift; a post-shoot lunch featuring Vinnie’s Smokin BBQ, plus hosted beer and wine; safety instructions; and an optional beginner’s clinic.
A gun safe ($1,500 value), giant grill, 2-day Harley ride, and more great prizes will be raffled off at lunch, along with awards including High Overall, Labor Division, Ladies, Under 18, and Duck-and-Cover.
Register now to be squadded with your friends. Early registration still allows payment at the door. Go to solanolandtrust.org or call Anne at 707-432-0150, extension 209. Tickets are $75 per person for 50 targets, or $110 for 100 targets. If a non-shooter wants to come along and enjoy the day, "Lunch Only" tickets are available for $15 per person. Rental shotguns are available by calling in advance to 707-374-5092.
All proceeds benefit Solano Land Trust’s work to permanently protect natural areas, working farms and ranchland in Solano County and connect the community to these lands.
