RAY COUNTY, Mo. — Trapshooting enthusiasts are invited to come and support a local organization while having fun with their friends. The Ray County Women’s Center is hosting a fundraising trapshoot this Saturday, April 22 at 9:00 a.m. at the Bird Fever Hunting Preserve.

Connie Taylor, the Executive Director of the Ray County Women’s Resource Center, told KMZU more about the event.

Teams of five will be able to compete for a first place prize of $500. The entry fee is $50 per shooter. The participants will need to provide their own ammunition for the event. Amateur Trapshooting Association rules will apply.

Shooters have the chance to win two guns, a Remington 870 20 gauge shot gun and a 12 gauge, 3 ½“ shot gun, in a raffle. Top gun and rat races are optional extra activities for the shooters of all ages.

All ages are invited to join the fun. Taylor says, “We welcome youth as well as people like my old husband.”

The trapshoot will benefit the Ray County Women’s Resource Center, which according to their Facebook page is a  faith-based center meeting the needs of women in Ray County and surrounding areas who face the challenges of an unplanned pregnancy.
