The 3rd Annual Bustin’ Clays Tournament brings the together the excitement of shotgun sports with the beauty of New Mexico’s outdoors in autumn at Founders Ranch on Sept. 29.

Sporting Clays is often referred to as “golf with a shotgun” for its style of play, where participants travel a 14-station course presented with varying challenges at each stop.

Unlike skeet or trap shooting, Sporting Clays tests participants with changes in speed, trajectory, elevation, angles, and distances. Adding to the fun and friendly competition, participants and teams are encouraged to dress in themed attire representing their organization as they vie for bragging rights as “Top Team” or “Top Gun.” Local businesses provide a number of random prize give-aways as well.

The annual sporting event is not only sure-fire, New Mexico-style fun, but it helps Greater Edgewood Area Chamber continue its mission of supporting business and community prosperity throughout the East Mountain region.

Instruction for beginners is available onsite, and there are two start times to accommodate experienced and novice participants. Day-of-event registration may be possible, based on space availability, but advance registration is highly recommended by Sept. 26 at edgewoodchambernm.com.
