Register for Capitol Challenge Shoot-Out by April 21

The Colorado Division of Wildlife invites sportsmen to join state legislators for a day of sporting clays and trap shooting at the 2010 Capitol Challenge Shoot-Out.

The second annual event will be held 11:30 a.m. to 4 p.m., Sunday, April 25, at Colorado Clays in Brighton, 13600 Lanewood St.

“The Capitol Challenge Shoot-Out is a great opportunity to bring sportsmen’s groups, legislators and constituents together in a fun afternoon of trap and sporting clays shooting,” said Tim Mauck, DOW legislative liaison. “It’s also a great venue to educate others about the shooting sports and the role sportsmen play in wildlife management and conservation.”

The cost per participant is $40 and includes one round of trap, 10 stations of sporting clays, ammunition and a BBQ lunch. Participants are encouraged to provide their own firearms, but on-site shotgun rentals are available.

Shooters of all experience levels are invited to participate, and firearms instructors will be on-hand to assist novice shooters.

Space is limited, and participants must register before Wednesday, April 21 to attend. More than 100 people attended last year.

The shootout will benefit the Colorado Sportsmen’s Caucus, chaired by Senators Lois Tochtrop and Dan Gibbs, and Representative John Soper, who will again be among other legislators participating in this year’s event.
