Cattlemen's Gala

Saturday, August 26, 2017 - Marysville, Ohio

Ohio’s cattlemen have a lot to celebrate. Plan to join the day-long celebration on Saturday, August 26 to support the Ohio Cattlemen’s Foundation youth scholarship fund benefiting the next generation of beef industry leaders. We’ll kick the day off with a Sporting Clays Shoot featuring individual and team competition to support the cause. Following the shoot, OCA will hold a Summer Business Meeting. Later that evening put on your boots and hats for dinner, drinks, and dancing in the barn at the first Cattlemen's Gala celebration and fundraiser. The evening will feature live music from the John D. Hale Band, and silent and live auctions to support youth scholarships. The events are open to all and discounted rates are available for attending the entire day, or join us as you can for either the Sporting Clays Shoot or Cattlemen’s Gala. You won’t want to miss what is sure to be a good time for a good cause.

Sporting Clays is the fastest growing venue in the clay target sports world. The way targets are presented to the shooter, varies at each station. As an example, some targets will cross in front of you, some will come from behind you, others will spring straight up, while still others will bounce on the ground. Each of our 10 stations will have two different target presentations. When are ready to shoot, you will load two shells and then call for your targets. Depending on the station you are shooting from, you may have 2 targets thrown individually when you call for them, this is called a Rapport pair (the second target is thrown as the first shot is fired). You may also have a True pair, in which both targets are thrown simultaneously. Each station has a placard to show how many shots should be taken from that station and the way the targets should be thrown.

Event Price:

$125 Individual

$500 Team
