The 2018 Clay Shoot Benefit was held on October 20 at Powder Creek Shooting Park. This was our fourth annual event, and God once again provided wonderful weather. Eight teams comprised of 38 individuals participated in the sporting clays competition. This year the winning team included three Calvary alumni and our Chief Academic Officer, Dr. Teddy Bitner. Dr. Bitner also won the prizes for best individual shooter and most consecutive hits. We want to express our appreciation to our sponsors – MidAmericare & Patmos Healthcare, Bushnell, and CZ-USA. All proceeds from the event will go toward student scholarships.

Last Friday 30 men and women took part in Calvary’s third annual Clay Shoot Benefit. It was a windy day at Powder Creek Shooting Park in Lenexa, Kansas, but the Lord gave us pleasant temperatures and no precipitation. I even heard that the wind made for a nice excuse if a participant happened to miss a shot! Bushnell sponsored the event, and the team they fielded took first place. The team from Olathe Bible Church came in second place. Besides those teams, we also gave prizes to the top two shooters, the two shooters who made the most consecutive shots, and the shooter who needed the most encouragement. Due to the generosity of many companies and individuals, we were also able to hand out dozens of door prizes. All proceeds from the event will go toward student scholarships.
