The Southwest Rotary of Wichita Falls had its Annual Sporting Clay Shoot for 2017.  See the great time  everyone had.  Thank you for helping us raise funds for local and international projects.


Our shoot March 25th 2017, marks another successful SW Rotary of WF Sporting Clay shoot.  We couldn’t do it without the fantastic support from our sponsors.  SW Rotary of WF would like to thank you for your part in supporting our main annual fundraiser that we reinvest in both our community and other areas.
With your support, our sporting clay event is one of the top local shooting events as highlighted in this email received after the shoot:
The Rotary Club Shoot was a hit!  Great people, great food and great fun. 18 teams! Thanks for coming out and thanks to John Lamberth and Lonnie Cully at Field and Stream for all their effort!

Kenny Haney provided 30 lb of pork loin, 40 lbs of chicken and ample quantities of cole slaw, potato salad and rolls. Then Kenny and his cook wagon team prepared and served another outstanding meal prior to the shoot. The crowd loved it -- we had no leftovers!
We had an extensive range of prizes; this year’s raffle offered chances to win three guns:
  1. Henry Silver Eagle Rimfire 0.18 caliber varmint gun
