Sporting Clay Shoot Benefits Mississippi College Team

September 20, 2012

Supporters of Mississippi College’s Sporting Clay team will join competition at Providence Hill Farm on October 11 that seeks to raise funds for the MC squad.

The Thursday morning sporting clay shoot at the fabulous Central Mississippi setting is expected to generate $15,000 for the university’s team. The squad launches its third season this fall.

Winners of the competition at the farm off Carsley Road are eligible for nice prizes, says Jim Turcotte, vice president for enrollment management and student affairs.

The administrator overseeing sporting clay, bass fishing and equestrian teams at the Christian university, Turcotte is inviting alumni and other friends of the university to join the fun. Sixty shooters are expected to comprise the four teams competing that day. Participants will receive Yeti coolers.

The October 11 event will be a good opportunity to meet students on the 15-member MC team. The squad is led by captain Robert Parkin, a junior from Madison.

Shooters are required to bring their own guns and shells. Lunch will be served for all hungry visitors. The cost to enter is $250 per shooter or $1,000 per team. Funds raised will be used to pay for shells, coaching fees and entry fees for MC students to participate in area shoots.

The 2,000-acre Providence Hill Farm is one of the best facilities of its type in the nation, Turcotte says. Its sporting clay range offers different target presentations emulating rabbits, teal and doves and includes a one of a kind duck flush. Registration begins at 7:30 a.m. with a light lunch served.
