I Shot the Sheriff…
Not really; but, there were a lot of clays shot at the Peg Leg Pirate 15th Annual “Get on the Good Foot” Sporting Clay Shoot! Once again, our Krewe was graciously hosted by Fish Hawk Sporting Clays Range located in Valrico on February 15, 2020. Although the day started off chilly, hot coffee and a hearty breakfast got everyone ready to go out and give it their all. The sound of shot guns echoed from morning till noon as the 43 teams made their way through a divided course consisting of eight 50 round stations each. By lunch that Florida sun was high in the sky and the beer was cold! After bellies were full and thirst was quenched, the award plaques were given to the top teams/shooters and the team that had the most fun. There were also 3 full grog chests raffled off, 2 guns raffled off (1-hand gun and 1-AR15 style), numerous silent auction and additional raffle items won and the 50/50 ticket winner pocketing over $2,000.
This is the largest fund-raising event our Krewe puts together each year to continue our mission of helping amputees and their families. Through the years our event has continued to grow with this year being the largest ever. I’m proud to announce we were able to place over $32,000 into our charity account! We are so grateful to the companies and individuals that continue to donate year after year. It is through your generosity, your support and an unwavering belief in our mission that enables us to help those amputees needing assistance. A sincere thank you to all.
