Video of Event 2014 Brochure
Las Vegas Area Council, Boy Scouts of America held its sixth annual Las Vegas Sporting Clays and Scout Steel Challenge, April 12 13, 2013. The purpose of this event is to help benefit nearly 20,000 area youth involved in scouting and its programs.
The two-day fundraiser, held at Pro Gun Shooting Club and Carter Powersports, blended competition, outdoor adventure, and fun in a challenging yet friendly environment. A special thank you goes out to Fiocchi Ammunition and Smith & Wesson for their continuing corporate sponsorship.
The event kicked off with a reception and auction at Carter Powersports, where the 20,000 square-foot showroom was the perfect venue for attendees to mix and mingle among the firearms, outdoor products, vacation trips, and motorsport merchandise items on display and open for bid. Good food and good company combined to make for an exciting evening that raised close to $40,000 for area scouts.
On Saturday the four-person teams competed in a variety of shotgun events. To keep things interesting, there was a variety of fun events to participate in, such as crossbows, knife and tomahawk throwing, .22 caliber arcade shoot, and 9mm handgun steel challenge events. More than $30,000 in prizes was given away, with four shooters winning Smith & Wesson firearms and one lucky winner going home with a brand new Browning Citari shotgun.
The PJʼs (Pararescue Jumperʼs) from Nellis Air Force Base performed an excellent live demonstration of a downed-pilot rescue which included the detonation of live explosives. Bruce Rowe (event chairman) ran a super event, and the day culminated with the presentation of trophies to the winning teams in three flight categories.
Last yearʼs event helped raise more than $120,000 total for local Scouting. The event is limited to 75 teams of four, with three sponsorship levels: $5,000, $10,000 and $25,000 per team. The entry
donation is tax-deductible and all donations are to benefit nearly 20,000 boys and girls served by Scouting in Southern Nevada.
Registration is open for our 2014 event, to be held and the Pro Gun Shooting Club on April 11 & 12. Come join us for an event-filled day, wonderful competitions and great fellowship.
