In 2012, we added a "sporting clay" shooting event to the BBQ 'N Blues Festival. We had many people that expressed an interest in branching out the fund raising events beyond the golf tournament. This gives those participating Pipeline Companies and secondary Oil and Gas Industry Company sponsors, who are not golf enthusiasts, or who enjoy shooting as well, an alternative event to participate in.
This event drew very good support in 2015 with 47 shooting teams consisting of four shooters per team. Because of the success it also provided more money to our Pipeline Scholarship Program helping high school seniors from pipeline employees families attend college. 50% of the profit made from the BBQ n Blues Clay Shoot and the BBQ n Blues Golf Tournament go into scholarships for Pipeline Company employee kids, who are seniors in High School. They apply for a scholarship, and the scholarship committee, comprised of a representative from each Pipeline Company participating in the BBQ N Blues Festival, has a chance to win one of eleven $2,500 Scholarships given out each year, before the Festival.
For the 2018 year, the Clay Shoot will be held in Cushing; if you are involved with the Festival and need a map, please call the Cushing Chamber at 918-225-2400, or email Executive Director Tracy Caulfield and request a map at [email protected]
