CLEMSON — Clemson University’s shotgun team has had an unprecedented run of success the past few years, shooting its way to the 2013 Association of College Unions International National Championship, 2014 Northeast Regional Championship and five straight Scholastic Clay Target Program Southeast Regional Championships.

To support its achievements, the team will hold its annual fall fundraiser shoot Oct. 24 at Live Oaks Sportsman’s Club, Swansea.

The shoot will include a traditional round of 100 sporting clay targets, catered barbecue lunch, raffle, silent auction and 5-stand and long-bird competitions.

“The team’s growth and success is a testament to the support we’ve receive from the university and organizations and individuals, including the National Wild Turkey Federation, Midway USA, Bill and Pam Hendrix, David and Nancy Tucker, and David Allan,” said Rick Willey, shotgun club coach and adviser. “But our annual fundraiser helps offset the cost of tournament travel and practice ammunition.”
