Our great partners, Shepherd’s Men, are hosting their 3rd Clay Shoot to raise funds and awareness for the SHARE Military Initiative at Shepherd Center. The Shepherd’s Men Invitational presented by Brassfield & Gorrie will be Friday April 24, 2020 from 8AM-2PM at Barnsely Gardens Resort in Adairsville, GA.

Members and Friends of Post 29 are invited to participate, as a shooter, sponsor, or volunteer. In the past, our volunteers have had a fun time working this event (details below).

To volunteer, simply email Russ Wood (webmaster@post29marietta.org) Information about Volunteering:

Barnsley is about a 45 minute drive from Marietta. The program begins at 8AM and will last until lunchtime or a bit later. If you stay until the end (not required), you’ll likely be back in Marietta between 3PM and 4PM.

What we need: Volunteers to operate Clay Target stations. No experience is necessary, we can teach you what to do in about 10 minutes. The target stations are remote operated. Volunteers will simply push buttons and help the shooters keep score. We will provide all volunteers with hearing protection, eye protection, breakfast, snacks, and lunch. You may wish to bring a portable chair if you get uncomfortable standing for long periods. Volunteers should dress in casual clothes (jeans, shorts, comfortable shoes).

Once we get confirmations of those who plan to attend, we will help coordinate car pooling from Post 29.
