Shooting for Cure set Saturday at Flint Skeet and Trap Club

ALBANY — The ALS Association of Georgia is conducting its 9th annual Shooting for a Cure sporting clays tournament here this weekend.

The event will begin at 8 a.m. Saturday at Flint Skeet and Trap Club, 1315 Lily Pond Road. Registration will begin then with two shooting rotations beginning at 9 a.m. and 1 p.m.

Eighty shooters will be allowed on the course for each rotation on a first-come, first-served basis. Groups will be limited to six shooters to avoid long lines at each station.

Wayne and Susan Goff, organizers of the event, say support by Southwest Georgians during the past eight years of the event has resulted in contributions of $175,000 for the ALS Association of Georgia.

The ALS Association is the only nationally affiliated not-for-profit organization solely dedicated to the fight against ALS.

The mission of the ALS Association of Georgia is to find a cure for and improve living with ALS. For additional information, visit www.alsaga.org.

There are three participation levels. First is the five stand/raffle sponsor level, which includes four shooters for $500. For $250, a shooting stand sponsor donation includes two shooter admissions. Individual entry is $80.

To reach the site, travel past Southwest Georgia Regional Airport and head southwest on Newton Road, or Georgia Highway 62. Go 1.5 miles and turn left onto Lily Pond Road, then go 1.4 miles and the club will be on the left.

A drawing is planned for a 12 gauge shotgun. There will be other door prizes.
