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.

The Orvis Sandanona Shooting Sports Clay Shoot is a premier clay shoot held at Orvis Sandanona Shooting Grounds in Millbrook, NY.  The Orvis Shoot is our longest-running clay shoot.  If you or your company is interested in participating in the shoot in September please contact Marjorie Dedrick

The Connecticut Rivers Council Clay Shoot Invitational is another great opportunity to support scouting.  The format is 5 shooters per team.  Breakfast and BBQ lunch are provided as well as raffles, games, and prizes for the top teams.  No Gun Rentals provided, all shooters will need to bring their own shotgun and ammo.  If you or your company is interested in participating in the shoot in September please contact Jason Messier at jason.messier@scouting.org
