It’s going to be a day of non-stop fun! Hosted by the Dallas Gun Club, the program will include a demonstration by the highly skilled retrievers bred at the world famous Wildrose Kennels, a full round of sporting clays, all of your meals and refreshments, an opportunity to win a magnificent Caesar Guerini shotgun, two single-elimination Top Shot competitions (Expert and Novice), shooting side games, and your own participation gift to commemorate the day!
Where Does the Money Go?
To help assist our youth in feeling the pride of being a member of the Boy Scouts of America, owning and wearing the Scout uniform, turning the pages of a Scout Handbook, and participating in an outdoor experience, we have established ScoutReach. This program provides at-risk Scouts and their leaders funding for uniforms, literature, equipment needs, program costs, registration, activity fees, meals, transportation, insurance, training, support and any other reasonable request from the leadership that will make each young person’s Scouting experience fun, memorable, and life-changing.
Youth who participate in ScoutReach never have to worry about how they are going to afford Scouting, how they are going to get to events, how they will get a uniform, how they will get a meal at an event or how they will fit in with the rest of the Scouts. Because the Scouting uniform each Scout wears is universal, no one ever knows the difference between a young person who comes from a family of wealth and a young person who comes from a financially distressed family.ScoutReach enables at-risk youth to overcome economic barriers by affording them the opportunity to participate in the Scouting program at little to no cost to them or their families. Youth learn skills in leadership, self-reliance, and citizenship helping develop them into the future leaders of our community, state, and nation. Without ScoutReach, many of these youth may continue to fall into the negative life patterns that have afflicted them and their families for generations.
These programs work! Boys participating in the ScoutReach Program believe in it and a survey of their views speaks loud and clear.
- 98.2% say that Scouting encourages them to set and achieve goals
- 97.7% say that Scouting has taught them new interests and skills
- 89.2% say that Scouting has taught them skills they could not have learned anywhere else
- 87% say that Scouting will help them get into college
- 97.2% say that Scouting will help them get a good job in the future.
In 2017, the Circle Ten Council ScoutReach Program served 12,818 youth and 1,019 adults within 473 units (Cub Scout packs, Boy Scout troops, Varsity teams, Venture crews and Exploring posts), providing safe meeting locations and structured settings where at-risk youth could learn new skills and develop habits of continual learning that will help them graduate from high school and succeed in life. Annually, the Circle Ten Council invests over $3.2 million to support these youth.
The Program For The Day
Join us at the Circle Ten Council Annual Sporting Clays Tournament benefiting ScoutReach. Our ScoutReach program, like all things Texan, is the biggest program in America and, like all big programs, it needs a ton of support from our community.
It’s going to be a day of non-stop fun at the Dallas Gun Club. An institution amongst Dallas area shooters, this club was selected as the All-Around Club of the Year 2008-2012, 2014 by the National Skeet Shooting Association and the National Sporting Clays Association.
Take advantage of this rare opportunity to shoot at Dallas’ premier private shooting club.
Our Program Starts at 9:00 a.m. – Sharp!
Get there early, register for the event, have a little breakfast, down a cup of coffee and warm up on one of the side games we will be offering.
Shoot well during the side game and with a little luck you could find yourself flying to the world-famous Cordoba Valley in Argentina for an elegant four-day dove hunt or driving to East Texas to bag your own alligator.
Get Dog Envy!
At 10:00 a.m., we will be treated to a demonstration by the renowned retrievers from the Wildrose Kennels. Wildrose is the oldest and most selective trainer and breeder of imported British and Irish Labradors in North America. The classic Gentleman's Gundog - waterfowl by morning, quail in the afternoon, then inside by the fire with the family - these versatile British Labradors have a superb temperament and natural game finding abilities. The discipline, performance, and natural beauty of these dogs are sure to impress you!
At 10:30 a.m., we will kick off the competition with a full round of sporting clays. The courses at the Dallas Gun Club will entertain everyone from the expert to the novice. Hedge your bets with a mulligan or two, climb into the first stand, and fire away. It’s sure to be a BLAST!
Belly Up, Dig In, and Enjoy the Music
Lunch starts at 1:30 p.m. and it will be delicious! This year, Golden Chick is bringing Grandma to the event just to cook us a Sunday Family Dinner featuring fried chicken and fruit cobbler a la mode!
During lunch, and for the remainder of the day, we will be entertained by the lively music of The Gypsy Playboys. They have entertained Texans all the way from Amarillo to El Paso and are sure to get your toes a tap’in!
Lunch is when you typically hear the mandatory speeches and we promise to keep them to a minimum. That being said, we will hear from a couple of folks about how ScoutReach changed their lives. That is a speech I want to hear!!
Fire Away - One More Time!
At 2:30 p.m., it’s time to wrap up the competition. The top 50 shooters from the sporting clays course will shoot a single elimination Annie Oakley style “Top Shot” Contest. The Top Shot will take home a Zoli Pernice Round Body shotgun. This gun will impress even the most avid collectors and be a welcome addition to anyone’s gun safe. Also at 2:30, our Sharpshooters, the bottom 50 shooters from the sporting clays course, will shoot a single elimination Annie Oakley style Contest. The winner of that contest will take home a Zoli Expedition shotgun. You can’t beat that prize package! Look down the page and you will see both guns, their description, and a link to the Zoli website.
All the rest of us can shoot more side games (because everyone wants to shoot doves in Argentina or bag their own gator), kick back and listen to the music, or catch up with friends.
And the Winners Are?
At 4:00 p.m., we will award the prizes. There are prizes for the First, Second, and Third Place teams and hunting trips to be awarded for each side game’s winner. To top it all off, one lucky shooter will win a magnificent Caesar Guerini Shotgun from Collector’s Covey!
Take a look at all of the prizes below and you are sure to be impressed.
The rest of us need not worry; every one of us will take home plenty of bling (yes, we said “bling”). This year, The Nancy Weldon Foundation has underwritten gifts for everyone; plan on a new gun sleeve featuring our logo on the flap and a camping chair to rest your weary bones after a long day in the field.
It’s a Wrap. We Hope to See You There!
