Cast-n-Blast 2024

July 17 @ 2:00 pm 8:00 pm

When: 2:00 p.m. Wednesday, July 17, 2024

Where: Kent County Conservation League, 8461 Conservation Rd, Ada, MI 49301

The Ruffed Grouse Society and Schrems West Michigan Trout Unlimited are once again co-sponsoring the annual Cast & Blast. This will be the 14th year for this annual event which is not only a “blast” but a fundraiser to support both organizations’ youth educational programs.

2024 Cast and Blast

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 including many cool items follows dinner.

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 2-3 p.m. for an additional fee paid to Kent County Conservation League.
