2023 Young Leaders Sporting Clays Classic

Tuesday, April 18th

Elbert County Gun Club, Elberton

Gather a team and come on out for the Young Leaders Sporting Clays Classic this April! We look forward to hosting 25 teams in the morning and 25 in the afternoon on Tuesday, April 18 @ Elbert County Gun Club. Morning slots go quickly – they are “first come, first serve.”

Although the specific focus is to give poultry leaders under the age of 40 the opportunity to meet each other, shooters of all ages are welcome to join the fun. We are hoping for at least one team from every poultry complex, regardless of age. Allied companies are encouraged to participate as well! Your participation helps endow the UGA Poultry Student Scholarship Fund in memory of Drs. Scott Russell, Dan Fletcher & Roger Wyatt.
