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 ninth year for this annual event which is not only a “blast” but a fundraiser to support both organization’s youth educational programs.
This year’s event will be held in compliance with the State’s current COVID 19 protocols including social distancing, wearing of face masks when in the clubhouse. Face masks will be provided for those who don’t have one and hand sanitations will be available throughout the clays and casting courses.
This is a fun-filled, no-pressure event 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. A steak dinner will follow a social/happy hour which includes complementary craft beer provided by a local brewery. Note: Dinner will not be self-serve this year, but plated by servers from the club in accordance with COVID 19 protocols. A raffle will follow dinner that will include a fly/reel combo, a half-day fishing trip, a firearm and many 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. Fly rods will be available for the casting competition but each shooter will be responsible for their 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 fee paid to Kent County Conservation League.
