On Sunday, April 14 the Barton Foundation hosted their 10th Annual Sporting Clay Shoot. The weather was perfect and the course, set up by Linden Target Sports of McPherson, was once again laid out for optimum precision with the enjoyment of the shooters in mind. The day was filled with fun, fellowship and a delicious lunch prepared by Great Western Dining.
This year 38 sponsors, comprising of both cash and gift-in-kind donations made this event possible. 191 participants competed for top score prizes (man, woman, youth and team) as well as cash prizes in 10 Lewis classes. Cash prizes were also available for those participating in the team competition flurry event that ran throughout the day.
Once again, this year’s event raised over $10,000 to fund faculty mini-grants. The funds are awarded from proposals submitted by Barton faculty with the requirement that all funds shall be used to assist with classroom enhancements which directly benefit the learning experience of Barton students.
We want to thank every sponsor, donor, shooter, and volunteer that made this event possible – it absolutely would not have been possible without each and every one of them.
Make sure to mark your calendars for next year’s event, scheduled for April 19, 2020.
