MidwayUSA Foundation is hosting several sporting clays tournaments to allow attendees to support youth shooting sports. These Day of Clays fundraising events are held at premier shooting ranges around the country, and every registration is a tax-deductible donation to the youth shooting team endowment of the registrant’s choice. It is also matched through MidwayUSA Foundation’s matching program.

“It’s a unique and exciting way for tournament participants to see the true impact of their dollars,” said MidwayUSA Foundation Relationship Manager John Linquist, “In addition, we have generous sponsors that make each event successful. Currently, Walther, Umarex and Federal Premium Ammo are providing quality prizes for Day of Clays.”

The first Day of Clays event of this year takes place May 6 in Little Falls, Minn. Sponsored by Reed’s Family Outdoor Outfitters, Day of Clays—Minnesota is a 100-target sporting clays tournament with side games to follow at Rice Creek Hunting and Recreation. The tournament begins at 1 p.m. and is open to all ages, skill levels and spectators.

On May 20, 2023, Day of Clays—South Carolina takes place at Moree’s Sportsman’s Preserve in Society Hill, S.C. A food truck will be on-site, and a reception will follow the 100-target sporting clays tournament. The event begins at 11 a.m., and a small reception follows.

Then on June 10, Day of Clays—Nebraska takes place Orvis-endorsed Pheasant Bonanza in Tekamah, Neb. It also features a 100-target sporting clays tournament, side games, awards and food. Festivities begin at 9 a.m. and again, every registration is a donation to the youth shooting program of the squad’s choice. 

More Days of Clays events will be held later this year in Arkansas and West Virginia. Four-person squad registration is $800 at each event, and single shooters can register for $200. Top shooters will compete for prizes and exclusive MidwayUSA Foundation belt buckles.
