Southern Nevada Quail Unlimited Skeet and Sporting Clays Shoot

The Southern Nevada Chapter of Quail Unlimited will host it’s first Skeet and Sporting Clays shoot February 17, 2007, at the Las Vegas Gun Club. The event, which will start at 11am, will be a combined skeet and sporting clays event, and will include a round of skeet and 50 targets of sporting clays, a year’s subscription to the Quail Unlimited magazine and a year’s membership in Quail Unlimited.

“Quail Unlimited’s method for matching funds and its system for keeping most of the money in the region where it is raised were major factors in starting the chapter,” said Chapter Chairman Chris Zundel. The chapter retains a portion of every membership sold and 60 percent of every dollar netted. This allows chapters to spend the habitat dollars and youth project money in their area.
