Kickoff meeting for Friends of NRA Fund-raiser set for May 14

CROSSVILLE — The kick-off meeting in support of the ninth Friends of NRA banquet and the Cumberland County Scholastic Clay Target Program (SCTP) shooting team will be May 14 at 6 p.m. at the Fairfield Glade Sportsman Club on Shorty Barnes road. The banquet is set for June 8 at 6 p.m. at the Cumberland County fairgrounds. 

Mike Webb, Tennessee field representative for the NRA and state coordinator for all the Friends of NRA banquets in Tennessee, will be there to pass out banquet tickets, describe the many drawings and auctions that take place, and tell how to support the Cumberland County Clay Crushers shooting team and to make this banquet the most successful ever held. 

Funds from the Friends of NRA Foundation grants are the single largest contributor to the scholastic clay target program. Last year the Clay Crusher team received $3,300 from this foundation to help defray shooting expenses and thus reduce out-of-pocket costs from the student’s parents.

Friends of NRA has contributed more than $25,000 to the Cumberland County SCTP since the program's inception in 2004. 

So, mark the dates, Tuesday, May 14, for the kick-off meeting on your calendar and see how you can help support the team, and also Saturday, June 8, for a fun night at the banquet.
