The Tug McGraw Foundation has announced the complete, star-studded lineup for its inaugural “Celebrity Sporting Clay Shootout”, presented by DeltaSports.TV, on Tuesday, June 5, 2012 at the Nashville Gun Club in Nashville, Tennessee. Proceeds from the event will benefit the Tug McGraw Foundation and its efforts to improve the lives of military service members who have been affected by Post-traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) and Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI).
Several of country music’s hottest stars have signed on to join GRAMMY® Award-winning musician Tim McGraw, including Keith Anderson, Luke Bryan, Craig Campbell, Troy Gentry, Brantley Gilbert, Josh Gracin, JT Hodges, Steve Holy, Jeff McMahon, Eddie Montgomery, Jon Pardi, Josh Thompson, Brad Warren, and Brett Warren. Also joining the fun is professional hockey star Mike Fisher of the NHL’s Nashville Predators. Adding their expertise to the event are world-class sporting clay professionals, including Bobby Brooks, Jenny Clark, Heyward Cunningham, Brad Kidd Jr., Bill McGuire, and Chris Reed.
Often described as “golf with shotguns,” the event will be a sporting clay shooting competition between 15 teams consisting of four shooters, a pro, and a celebrity. Unlike trap and skeet, which are games of repeatable target presentations, sporting clays simulates the unpredictability of live-quarry shooting, offering a great variety of trajectories, angles, speeds, elevations, distances, and target sizes.
In addition to the shooting competition, there will be a BBQ lunch and silent auction with items including wine, dining, travel and sports & music memorabilia, including a three night stay in the Napa Valley at the award-winning, platinum LEED-certified, luxurious Bardessono Hotel, Restaurant and Spa in Yountville, Napa Valley.
Only a few spots remain so register now!! To register an individual or team, or for more information about becoming a sponsor of the event, please visit http://www.tugmcgraw.org.
About the Tug McGraw Foundation
TMF was established by Tug McGraw in 2003 to raise funds to enhance the quality of life of children and adults with brain tumors and their families by stimulating and facilitating research that addresses the physical, social, emotional, cognitive, and spiritual impact of the disease. Recognizing that other areas of brain research—such as traumatic brain injury and Post traumatic Stress Disorder—inform the science surrounding brain cancer, TMF has widened its scope to include a broader spectrum of the neuroscience to support advances in medical care and quality of life for our nation’s battle-wounded, ill and injured service members. www.tugmcgraw.org
