The Lakeshore Conservation Club and The Outreach Program of Brainerd Lakes are partnering to host Clays to End Hunger, a trap shooting event Saturday and Sunday, Aug. 7-8, at the Lakeshore Conservation Club facility on the west side of Gull Lake.

Profits will go to feed families through the work at The Outreach Program of Brainerd Lakes, with a facility in Nisswa.

David Grell, Lakeshore Conservation Club president, and Shawn Hansen, executive director of The Outreach Program, have been working on this concept for the past several months and are ready to launch the event.

“It will be great to have sportsmen and sportswomen come together for a trap shooting competition and support a great cause," Grell said in a news release. “I’ve been thinking and praying about this for a long time. It is time to put this event into action.”

The trap shooting event will use the facilities at the Lakeshore Conservation Club and Mount Ski Gull. Plans include registration, two time slots for each shooter, a sportsman’s dinner, awards, prizes and more.

The committee is working on sponsorships for the event and has secured the presenting sponsor as Reed’s Family Outdoor Outfitters. Sponsorships are available starting at $250+. Registration is anticipated to open early second quarter of 2021. The domain of claystoendhunger.com is being developed, as well as a Facebook page for the event.

“We are thankful for this partnership with the Lakeshore Conservation Club. Our intent is to provide a strongly supported outdoor event. There will be monetary prizes for the top marksmen along with other prizes, and opportunities to raise dollars to help feed families in greater Minnesota," Hansen said in the news release.
