Clay Shoots

The Connecticut Rivers Council is proud to offer two premier Shooting sports events in the calendar year.  Our Shooting Sports events are all about location, location, location. Both of these Clay Shoots are held at world-class facilities and are headlined by corporate sponsors and volunteers.  All proceeds benefit the Scouts of the Council.
