Clay shoot participants are invited to take aim and shoot for a day of fun that also benefits Penn State York students. Penn State York will hold its sixth annual sporting clays event on Thursday, April 24 at Central Penn Sporting Clays (CPSC) in Wellsville, Pa. The event is from noon to 4 p.m. and benefits Penn State York’s athletic programs. Penn State York offers five intercollegiate sports, baseball, men’s and women’s basketball, soccer and women’s volleyball, and a variety of club or intramural sports. 

The schedule for the day includes clinics for novice shooters at 11 a.m., registration, flurry, archery, and lunch beginning at 11:30 a.m., warm-up from noon to 1 p.m., a shotgun start at 1 p.m., and a tailgate along with awards and prizes at 3:30 p.m. The novice clinic is with Andrea Seefeldt Knight, an experienced shooter and the 2013 Maryland State Champion, Lady and A Class.

Individuals can be a shooter for $125 which includes 100 clays, foam ear plugs, lunch and tailgate, contest participation (including flurry, archery), and additional contests on the course. Participants also receive an event gift and team photo.
Gift cards will be awarded as individual prizes. Hershey Spa gift cards will be awarded for the women’s division winners.
