The Ruffed Grouse Society and Schrems West Michigan Trout Unlimited are once again co-sponsoring the annual Cast & Blast. This will be the 13th year for this annual event which is not only a “blast” but a fundraiser to support both organizations’ youth educational programs.
This 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, fly caster, and overall high score. A steak dinner will follow a social/happy hour which includes complimentary craft beer provided by a local brewery. A raffle will follow dinner that will consist of a fly rod/reel combo, a firearm, and many other cool items. We will have expert instruction on the fundamentals of each sport.
Everyone is welcome and you do not need to be a current member of either organization to attend, and dinner-only folks are welcome. Fly rods will be available for the casting competition, but each shooter will be responsible for bringing their own shotgun. Shotguns are also available for rent from KCCL at a nominal fee. Please contact Mark at KCCL for cost and availability.
Shotgun shells are NOT included, so please bring your own shells if possible. Shells may be available for purchase at KCCL but supplies may be limited. Warm-up rounds of skeet, trap, or five-stand are available from 2:00-3:00 p.m. for an additional fee paid to Kent County Conservation League.
