2017 YMCA of Frederick County’s Clays For Kids

October 13, 2017 @ 8:00 am - 5:00 pm

Hendershot’s Sporting Goods is once again proud to support the 2017 YMCA of Frederick County’s 3rd Annual Clays for Kids Sporting Clays event.

The YMCA of Frederick County (MD) Clays For Kids Committee is preparing for the 3rd Annual Clays For Kids Sporting Clays Tournament on Friday, October 13th. The event has a new home in Frederick County at the Thurmont Conservation & Sportsman’s Club. There will be 10 stations provided by The Royal United Co. and a shooting game, plenty of parking, a covered picnic area for our Mission BBQ lunch and a clubhouse for registration and raffle item display.

Online registrations are can be accessed via the YMCA site

Sporting Clays is a relatively new sport that is considered “golf with a gun”. This year will be a course of 75 clay targets in 10 stations with a beautiful backdrop of the Catoctin Mountains. Teams of four compete for the best score and special custom awards by the very individuals the event benefits. Each participant will receive a RTIC Tumbler 30 oz. for participating as well as good food and fellowship all while raising money and awareness for a great cause. This new event is rapidly becoming a popular fundraiser.

Each year the amount of Financial Assistance provided to Frederick County residents grows. In 2016 the Y distributed over $600,000 to individuals and partner organizations in Financial Assistance. The Y is projecting an increase for 2017 to be closer to $750,000. One hundred percent of the money raised from the Clay’s Tournament will help provide funds to those who qualify through the Annual Campaign fund. Without this aid many members would not have the opportunity to be a part of the YMCA community.
