Ronald McDonald House Charities of Idaho Sporting Clays Tournament

Sporting Clays is a clay target game designed to simulate field shooting. On the Sporting Clays course, shooters will be presented with a variety of targets that duplicate the flight path of game birds.

The Western States CAT/Ronald McDonald House Charities of Idaho Sporting Clays Tournament is held each year the Friday and Saturday after Memorial Day at Black Dog Clays. The Tournament is a 14 Station, 100 bird, NSCA registered event (NSCA membership is not required to participate). Participants receive 12-gauge ammunition, targets, shooter gift, lunch and beverages on either Friday or Saturday. The support of Western States CAT as the title sponsor and the Kids & Clays Foundation helps make this Tournament successful and enjoyable for everyone who attends.
