Aiming for Education
The fourth annual “Aiming for Education” Skeet Shoot fundraiser for the University of Arkansas Community College at Morrilton Foundation will be held from 2:00 p.m. to 5:00 p.m. on Sunday, September 18, 2011 at Point Remove Lodge in Hattieville.

“Aiming for Education” will consist of 15 three-person skeet shooting teams, and will also feature a youth clay shoot contest open to 40 youth participants. The cost of entry for the adult skeet shoot is $50 per player or $150 for each three-person team, and 10, 12, and 20-gauge ammunition will be provided. Mixed teams of men and women are welcome. The cost of entry for the youth trap shoot is $25 for each participant, which includes a Ducks Unlimited Greenwing membership. A casual dinner will be served at the close of the event. All registered players will receive a gift bag, and door prizes will be awarded throughout the day.
