The Ruffed Grouse Society and Schrems West Michigan Trout Unlimited are teaming up once again to co-sponsor the annual Cast & Blast. This will be the seventh year of this annual event which is not only a “blast” but a great vehicle to raise funds for both organizations’ youth education programs.
This is a fun-filled, no-pressure event that includes a 50-shot round of sporting clays and a fun, but challenging fly-casting course. Prizes will be awarded for the top shooter, caster and overall high score. Steak dinner is included and there will be a social/happy hour with complementary craft beer provided by a local brewery. We will also hold a raffle which will include a fly rod and Browning 22 target pistol as well as other cool items.
Novice shooters and casters are welcome! We will have expert instruction of the fundamentals of each sport. Everyone is welcome and you do not need to be a current member of either organization to attend. Orvis Fly rods will be available for the casting competition but each shooter will be responsible for his/her own shotgun. Shotguns are also available for rent from KCCL at a nominal fee.
Shotgun shells are NOT included in the price but can be purchased at KCCL. Warm up rounds of skeet, trap or 5-stand are available from 2:00-3:00PM for an additional $15.
Individuals who register by July 10 pay just $80. After then, or at the door, the cost is $100.
