Event nets $94,000 for conservation
THE UNION SPORTSMEN’S Alliance (USA) 6th Annual Boilermakers Kansas City Sporting Clays Shoot held in Lenexa, Kan., September 6, netted $94,427 to support the group’s conservation mission. Held at the Powder Creek Shooting Park, the event drew 169 union members, shooting enthusiasts, volunteers and guests — including several members of the Armed Forces and the Fishing for Freedom program.
“The money will go back to work for sportsmen and women by helping fund the USA’s efforts to enhance public access to the outdoors, conserve wildlife habitat and pass on our incredible outdoor heritage to the next generation,” said USA Executive Director and CEO Fred Myers. A team of retirees from Local 363 (East St. Louis, Ill.) took the high overall honors with a combined score of 350. The shooters included former BM-ST Rick Eller, Ted Critchfield, Matt Leach, Bob Hartung and Bob Pennington.
