The clay breaking and always-present jovial camaraderie continue on Saturday in the rugged mountain-side setting of the Carson Valley Clays Club with a burger lunch after the shoot.
A gala buffet featuring game and traditional fare is Saturday night followed by the presentation of the awards.
A modified Lewis System of scoring makes it possible for shotgun enthusiasts of all levels to have an equal opportunity to share in the $2,000 in cash prizes.
