Cast and Blast 2023

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 prime rib dinner will follow a social/happy hour which includes complementary craft beer provided by a local brewery. A raffle will follow dinner that will include of a fly rod/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. There is also a shortage of shotgun shells, so please bring your own shells if possible. You may be able to purchase shells at KCCL, but supplies may be limited. 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.
